Creating Your Cover

At this point, let's explain the term "Bleed". The sheet of paper that goes through the printing press is always larger than the actual page size of the final book. The final printed sheet is later folded and cut to size. This is the trim size. "Bleed" refers to the process of extending any image that comes to the edge of the trim and adding 1/8 inch more image. The reason for adding "Bleed" is that a sheet of paper going through the printing press can bounce slightly against the many "guides" used to keep it going straight through the press. If you didn't incorporate bleed, a sliver of white could show on some pieces when your cover is finally folded and trimmed. Note that "Bleed" must be added not only to your cover, but also to any pages where an image goes right up to the trim.
