  • Multi-page layout

    This is probably not a very smart question, but what the hell...

    If i make a layout of, for instance, business cards; say 10 to a page of A4 (i haven't measured it yet), would i be right in assuming i only need to worry about bleed on the outside edge? Not where the cards are joining?

    I'm about 98% sure that's right, but i figured better safe than sorry lol!

    No you actually have to bleed each card. Bleed is for cutting and unless you can cut without flaws I wouldn't do it.

      The exception would be the relatively rare case where all the bleeding elements are absolutely straight vert or horiz across the card, and solid.

          I don't know... I've seen a lot cards where the only bleed situation is a horizontal cross card rule. It's probably just a printer trick for charging more for the bleeds!

              You know... a card where a horizontal line goes from left to right edge. If it's truly straight, you can butt them right upagainst each other without leaving any bleed area because it all becomes one straight line when n-upped in the final assembly. Technically-- it is a bleed. Only, since it's always in the same place, stright, and there's no variation in the tone (a tint would work too), there's no need to work in extra space for the bleeding.

                Thanks for pointers... So if the patterns/colours on the cards run straight through, there's no need for the bleed on the inner joins, just the outside edge? Otherwise it's full bleed all the way around each card...

                    Notice I said flat tones. Patterns or any texture won't work because the 'joint' will show. Unless you use a very wide seamless pattern.

                            That doesn't always work. There are web tricks out there that make doing that give you a blank file.

                            Thanks PrintDriver. These are images downloaded from Ancestry.com and show census forms etc. I'll contact them and see if they can help.

                            Monitors are sort of a matter of opinion.
                            I do all my pre-press work on not so expensive Viewsonic monitors in a dual monitor setup. I already know that for print, my monitor will not accurately...
