Formats

1. Trim size is the size of the paper and how it will physically turn out.

2. Bleed marks is to show the edge of where images, objects, or text in a layout extend beyond the trim boundaries of the page. These marks are for items or colours you wish to go to the edge of the page. For most designs between the sizes of A3 - A6 to DL, bleed is typically 5mm (2.5mm around the edges)

3. Safe area is where you would want to place your content/design as an added precaution of not getting important parts of the content/design cut off. This also helps the document from looking skewed, due to any movements in the printing/cutting process. Safe area will vary depend on the size of the document. The larger the document, the larger the safe area will need to be.
