With our hottest new update, you can now activate Print Bleed on Picmaker.

Print bleed is the part of the document that’s beyond the trim edge of the page. It’s ⅛ of an inch, serving as an allowance for potential cutting misalignments.

If you don’t add this allowance, you’ll risk having white gaps on the edges of the final product.

Think of it as a universal instruction to cut off until this part of the document, leaving no white gaps to the edge of the paper. Also, this serves as a guide for the designer itself to extend the image or elements of the design beyond the trim line.

Step 1: Begin by logging in to Picmaker.

Step 2: Create or open an existing design. Customise your design in the artboard - you can change colours, add icons and images and play with our endless library of design templates, text effects and filters.

Step 3: Once you're done customising your design, go to the File Menu, scroll down to Article settings and select Show Print Bleed.

And that's how you can use Picmaker’s Print Bleed to print your designs on oversized papers and cut it to size while your design ‘bleeds off the paper.
