Hello Experts,

 

I am struggling with what is probably a very easy task...  I have colored page edges with the inside top and bottom corners rounded in.  How do I get the proper bleed to send to print without cutting off my corners?

You have have set an impossible task for yourself. Bleed exists because the cuts are not going to be 100% precise, and therre is no smooth way to continue the color into the bleed with your current design. 

If you put your rounded corner exactly on the edge, it will look wrong every time the die moves even a little; either a sliver of white or the top of the curve cut off.  

I think that a better solution would be to move the curve a bit in from the edge top and bottom. That will ensure that your curve shows as intended, and looks consistent on all pages.

Only if it's trimmed exactly. Look, it's all up to the OP and he/she should speak to the printer and come up with a plan.

Thank you....  this is the way I had originally designed it, but the printer was concerned.  Maybe I should put it back and then just have it overlap a point or so rather than an entire 1/4 of an inch.

It is not going to help, at all. You're going for zero tolerance and you're going to have to go through every single piece to make sure they look the way you want.

Hi Lorie, I not sure what you mean by "put it back and then overlap etc". But definitely talk with your printer and come up with a plan that he is confortable with. I was showing you how we have done it many times over the years, with very good results. I have worked at this print shop for 12 years and have had 40 years in the business. Have a great day
