Have you ever tried to read a road map that didn’t have a scale? Or worse how about a map that only showed terrain but had no compass rose to tell you what direction you were heading?
Crop marks and bleed marks are to printers what a compass rose is to a navigator. Without them we have to guess what position that file you created needs to be on the sheet. Honest, we are all pretty smart in the print industry but we can’t be mind readers.
When you create a file for printing always be certain to include those crop and bleed marks. They tell us where and how to trim your job so that what we deliver to you is exactly what you had in mind when you created the file.
