Common Setup Problems


Trim Problems

The setup can be well used to solve these common setup problems when it comes to trim issues while printing.


You generally need to include an additional 1/8″ (3mm) of craftsmanship to each edge of your report. This additional fine art is designated “bleed” and it will be cut off in the cutting and collapsing process. When things move a millimeter or two toward any path, there will be craftsmanship there and you won’t end up with unattractive white lines on the edges of your pages. 

Safe Zone

The idea of a safe zone is fundamentally backward of bleed. In the event that we realize that our work of art may move a few millimeters, at that point we need to make certain to keep any significant components (like discourse air pockets or content) at any rate 1/8 inch (3mm) away from the trim line, with the goal that they won’t be cut off by any little cutting differences. 

This region—that is, everything that is mutiple/8 inch away from the edge of the page—is known as the sheltered zone, since you can be certain that nothing around there will be cut off.


This is a subtler idea, yet it’s essential to remember the way that cutting fluctuations influence page structures that incorporate fringes around the edges. For instance: Say that my fine art has a 3mm wide dark outskirt around the edge of the page. On the off chance that my work of art shifts 2mm to one side, even with appropriate drains, my outskirts will wind up being 5mm on the left half of the page and just 1mm on the right side, driving them to look absolutely lopsided. 

Fortunately, this one has a simple arrangement: In the event use the

or that you use outskirts, they ought to consistently reach out in any event 1/4″ in from the trim line. That way, a millimeter or two of moving won’t make them look lopsided.


(1) Grow your work of art, realizing that the external 1/8 inch will be cut off as drain. Be cautious, however, as this may present safe zone issues if the development causes discourse air pockets or content to wind up outside of the protected zone or try setting up it using

(2) Mirror the edges of fine art. In specific cases, it’s feasible for craftsmen to duplicate the 1/8 inch of work of art at the edges of their page, at that point glue and flip that fine art to make the hallucination of a consistent drain. However, it’s far desirable to do

or by over going to press with no bleeds by any means.
