    Bleed

    Hello,

    could you please help me? I have an invoice in respect of publication of an advertisement. Breakdown of the price includes several items, such as: base price, color, special color, rebate etc. and one of these items is "Surcharge Bleed". What could "bleed" mean here?

    Thank you very much.

    Webopidia says,

    (n.) Text or graphics that extends all the way to the edge of the paper it is printed on. Bleeds are used in publishing for graphical effect and for printed tabs. Most printers cannot print all the way to the edge of the paper, so the only way to produce a bleed is to print on paper larger than the final page size and then trim the paper.

    (v.) To run to the edge of the paper, thereby producing a bleed.
