Crop Marks


Crop marks, also known as trim marks, are small lines placed at the corners of a print-ready file.

They act as guidelines, indicating where the paper should be trimmed after printing.

Their presence ensures that the printed item is cut to the correct size, maintaining the intended layout and design.

The accurate positioning of crop marks is essential for the final appearance of printed materials, particularly those with bleeds or edge-to-edge colour.
