If any element of your project goes off the page, your have created a bleed. In order to provide you with a quality finished product, which is always our goal, the artwork must include at least 1/8" of extra background, photo, graphic, etc. for trimming. If you create your project in Word it is impossible to include this extra space for trimming. It is difficult in Publisher and also in Photoshop. The best way to design a piece that bleeds is with InDesign or Quark or to let us help you put together your project for printing. We are always happy to help!
