What does ‘bleed’ refer to when it comes to images and printing?

‘Bleed’ refers to the area which gets trimmed off after printing. This is to make sure that the image goes to the edge of the printed product so that there are no unprinted edges. Photo prints usually have 3-4mm of bleed.

You can see bleeds when creating a design using our design editor, as shown below.
