What is Full Bleed?

A full bleed is when the color “bleeds” off the label. If your label design or background color is intended to cover the entire surface of the label, please note that we need a 1/16″ (0.0625″) bleed around each edge of the label. For example, if you have a 2” x 1” label where the color bleeds off the edges, you should size your design to 2.125″ x 1.125″ as this ensures a 1/16” bleed around the entire label.
