General Artwork Guidelines
If you have colour or images to the edge of the page, please include bleed on your artwork to ensure it is printed edge to edge. Please note that black and white photographs can appear slightly darker when printed and if there isnt much contrast then colour printing (even if black and white) can result in a better print result.
If your artwork does not have colour or images to the edge of the page, you do not need to include bleed and crop marks. In this instance, your document will be printed with white borders.
