Yes please, we need at least a 3mm bleed and crop marks on all artwork files we work with. In addition we also ask that customers leave a 3mm ‘safe zone’ from the edge of the page to any text or image that does not bleed (this may differ depending on the product being ordered).

You can embed/outline your fonts in Illustrator or InDesign by opening your document and highlighting the text, then select ‘Type’ in the top menu and choose ‘Create Outlines’. Your text is now grouped together in outline form.
Working in Word? No problem to embed fonts simply open your document and select ‘Options’ from the drop-down menu. Once you have ‘Options’ open switch over to the ‘Save’ tab. Select ‘Embed Fonts in the File’ and click ok and you are all done.

Bleed is the ‘edge’ of a piece of artwork that goes beyond the trim edges of the printed piece.
If you have ant images that go to the edge of your finished artwork it important to have a bleed to ensure that when it’s trimmed after print there is no risk of a white ‘edge’ appearing on the finished piece.
