Understanding bleed

We could go into this in some depth, but someone has kindly done it for us…

Understanding Bleed (Wikipedia)

We need bleed on every job that you send to us, so please – if you’re not sure and want your job to run smoothly, read this first!

What is CMYK?

Much of our printing is carried out in process colours – commonly known as CMYK.  Want to understand more?

I wanted to give you a big thank you for delivering the Twist frame so quickly. From the time I sent the first email to the afternoon you set it up took less than 5 working days. Amazing turnaround and outstanding service as always. I've received excellent feedback from our Product Manager and MD, it looks great.

You did an excellent job for us in July, our customer was delighted, and he's not an easy one to please.

Just wanted to thank you for turning around the co-op leaflets so quickly especially given the unsatisfactory artwork that I first forwarded. This is greatly appreciated.

Can I thank you all at Flexpress for your fantastic service and printed materials this year for (my company), for Leicester Art Week and for my friend, Jane. I know Jane has found your support invaluable (and has probably saved her sanity!)

Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks for all your help getting our panels sorted for the Pub17 show. I've been very impressed with the design and I wouldn't hesitate to use Flexpress again in the future.
