DO Keep a .2" Margin from your page edge

Posted by Laser Tech on

A common mistake is placing designs all the way to the edge of the art board. This can result in pieces close to the edge getting cut off. Make sure you keep a .2" margin from your page edge.

In the sample above, the designer created guidelines that are .2" from the page edge. This layout is 12"x6". Almost all edges of all parts are sticking out of the safe zone and will most certainly get cut off, resulting in unusable pieces. No one wants that! If your project sticks out, we usually cancel the order right away and request you rearrange your pieces. However in the event we don't catch that mistake, you may get some pieces cut off. So make sure your pieces are all squished inside a safe cushion!
