Q: Artwork With Borders?

A: It is common for designers to place their borders too close to the trim line. Art borders that are not within the specified safe area may result in an uneven border on the final trim, therefore it is important that enough clearance should be provided. Safe area contains all critical elements/information of an artwork that cannot risk being cut off, and is any area that is 1/8" (.125") from within the trim line.
