Crazy talk

I've recently completed a letterhead for a client that required what my printer referred to as a 'precise' bleed? I added 4mm to be on the safe side. They came back spot-on so I can't complain.

Bleeds are placed so that nothing in the design might be cut off during the cutting process. That is why when your printer gives you bleed dimensions - COMPLY. It's for your own good. Thanks for posting!

Although printing might be quite accurate these days, die-cuts are not (not including laser die) and to have different printing standards for die-cuts would be kind of a pain.
