What is Edge Bleed ?

Edge bleed only applies to screen printing. The new Australia Signs digital print services seldom require edge bleeding. The artdept will assist you.

Edge Bleed is a term that means color is applied to full extreme edges of the sign material. Careful artwork is required when any sign project has an artwork image that requires a colored background. In general sign panels are cut to size before screen printing. When a full color is required to 'run' off the edges, panels are ordered oversize, screen printed then re-cut or manufactured to accurate finish size. Edge Bleed signs incur a minimum additional material cost.

For Example, if your finished sign size is to be 900 mm x 600 mm with a full color running up to the edges, the actual stock size would be 940mm x 640mm. Printed and then cut down again to 900 mm x 600 mm.

Tips for Saving Money. If your artwork will allow, we can print with in 5mm of the edges. This would leave a thin white border around the panel. Saving double cutting and over size material costs. Generally, it also helps in lowering the quantity of sheets required to reach common sized signs.
