Do you have a particular specification for the trim & bleed? You can add trim marks to objects as an appearance effect, and for bleed it may be possible to use an offset path effect depending on your needs.

Hi Doug,

Thanks for your help, I wanted to place a 10mm bleed all around with trim marks. All the obejects are of the same size. Is there a universal setting or I have add bleed and trim marks individually? There are around 23 of the objects

As I said, trim marks can be applied to individual objects with Effect > Crop Marks. Bleed depends on the makeup of the objects. It could be as simple as an offset path effect for an object with a uniform fill.

I had to add the crop marks to the stroke here as they seem to apply to the offset path appearance. You could get around it by applying it to a 'dummy' fill of none too.

The advantage of the Crop Marks effect is that it automatically adapts to the dimensions of the objects. That is, if you increase or decrease their size the crop marks change simultaneously.

 

Apart from that, the Crop Marks effect is rather inflexible with no additional settings.

 

Therefore, I'd also recommend to check the Make Crop Marks script, provided by Sergey Anosov. It has some very useful settings, including bleed.
