Additional Trim and Bleed Information

Page trim: These measurements show final trimmed page sizes. The printer takes approximately 1/8' (.3175 cm) off the top, bottom, and outside edge (face) of an untrimmed page to produce the trimmed page size. Variations of up to 1/8' can occur from printer to printer to aid in binding, so please keep critical content at least 1/4' (.635 cm) away from final trim sizes.

Bleed: Images can bleed off the page, but please be mindful that trim is not always exact (as this is a custom manufacturing process). If you're designing your own pages in InDesign or Photoshop, please be sure to keep critical content—images and text—at least 1/4' (.635 cm) away from final trim sizes and at least one inch (2.5 cm) from your book's edges for ImageWrap covers.
