hello. i have set my document to have bleeds at .125 (as requested by printer). I have pulled all graphics over the bleed area. See screenshot  #1.  However, when i export this with the pdf setup as requested by the printer, the bleeds are not going past my page size -- i'm not seeing the bleeds.  Screenshot 2.  

 

i know something is off - any ideas? think it is within my pdf presets?  should i have the bleed marks box checked even though the printer's  suggested presets don't show that?

 

thanks for helping me clear my thoughts about bleeds and such! I'm not 100% sure about bleed marks, registration marks, crop marks etc.

In your pdf print export, did you switch on Use Document Bleed Settings?

 

As a workflow habit, I make bleed regions snap to the bleed lines. This helps convey meaning to the prepress people.
