Hey all, 

 

Hope you are well

 

I just about get by in using Indesign - yet the main element I still struggle with is printing best practice, more specifically bleeds and trims. 

 

I can't seem to find 'trim' - a magazine has asked for the below for a full page advert - can anyone help how to meet the requirements for what they are asking from Indesign

 

Thanks,

The Trim is the InDesign page size. The Type area - this is the margins - so you'd want the type area to be be this centred on the page - all your text should be in this area and not outside it. Bleed size refers to how much bleed. Any images/text or other items that are going to be outside your type area need to extend out into the bleed area.
