"Bleed" stands for any element on the page that has to be printed to the 
very edge of the sheet. To achieve a nice result, those elements must 
overlap this "bleeding edge" by a small amount (3 mm or 1/8 of an inch 
is usual) and be printed on the other side of the "trim marks". For 
this, of course, you need to print on a larger sheet than the intended 
result. "Bleed" effect will be achieve when the paper will be trimmed to 
its final size at the end of the process.
