Learn how to add bleed to your Canva designs so they are ready for professional printing here at Fidelity Design & Print.

More business owners like you are discovering the benefits of Canva to design their marketing materials; business cards, leaflets, brochures. Canva users often run into problems when it comes to printing because their files rarely have bleed added! This often makes it difficult for us to deliver print work at the quality we would like.

Bleed is added to designs to give us printers that extra bit of space for variation in cuts and ensures that your finished print doesn’t have odd white edges. By learning how to add 3mm bleed around the edge of your design document, and allowing any images or colours to fill this space, you create a safe area for trimming.

Watch our video tip below to see how you can add bleed quickly and simply and then download a print-ready PDF to order through Fidelity’s online printing services.
