Trimming refers to the process of removing excess paper or other print material from the edges of a printed item.

This can be done to size the product correctly, create a clean edge, or enhance the design's overall aesthetic.

It's a crucial final step in the production process that requires precision and attention to detail.

Automated trimming machines are commonly used to ensure consistent and accurate results across large print runs.
