Preparing a file for printing may seem like a simple process, but it requires a little care and attention so that everything goes smoothly. If you are going to need crop marks and bleeding, the process will be a little more complex, but not impossible.
In this tutorial, Leandro Rodrigues (@leon_0), a graphic designer and art director who has been working in the field for over 10 years, shows you step by step how to prepare a file simply and efficiently.
Crop marks: indicate the place where the printer will cut and define the paper edges
Bleed marks: are the excess of the image that will be cropped once it is printed
Registration marks: used for printer alignment
Color bars: used to calibrate the colors of your file
