Bleed Help

On my Illustrator file, the top of my document is far away from the bleed line but when it is exported as a PDF, it brings the document right up to the bleed edge. Can someone help me?

The crop marks speak a different language.

I see crop marks but no bleed. Your document does not have a bleed.

 

It appears to me that the space above the "42" logo is correct to the crop marks. (The screen captures are at different scales, but the space appears to be correct.)

Check your document setup and see if you've included a bleed:

Below is what a bleed looks like in Illustrator when saved as PDF with all marks turned on.

Notice that AI does not include bleed marks, however you artwork needs to extend _beyond_ the page edge/crop marks.

A little easier to visualize is how InDesign outputs PDFs with crop/bleed marks:

Your art needs to extend beyond the crop marks as shown to the bleed lines:

(Bleed lines in AI and ID show up as red lines _outside_ the page edge.)

It looks as if you build or are using your own template. Just extend any artwork that touches the page edge at least 9 pts beyond the page edge.
