Trim Marks


Trim marks are small lines or guides located at the corners of a print document.

They provide a precise point to cut the paper, ensuring the printed material's correct size.

As a key component of prepress formatting, trim marks help to guarantee that the final product adheres strictly to the intended dimensions.

This feature is particularly important when designing printed pieces with bleed, where the print extends past the edge of the sheet before trimming.
