"Bleed" is a printing term used to indicate the area that will be trimmed off after the job is printed and cut down to the finished size. Since the bleed extends 1/8" all around the card, your document set-up should be 1/4" taller (1/8" on top and 1/8" on the bottom) and 1/4" wider (1/8" on the left and 1/8" on the right) than the finished size of the card. The chart below indicates what the document set-up should be for a particular finished size.
Be aware that text or images too close to the TRIM LINE (shown in SOLID PINK) will be cut off. Make sure that your background image extends 1/8" past the TRIM LINE.
In the above illustration, the background image needs to extend to the BLUE LINE. Be sure to extend the background image to bleed or the white of the paper may show in the final cut down product. The chart above indicates what the document set-up should be for a particular finished size

Buckslips Printing Online
“Pass the buck!” “Slip me a buck!” Perhaps these phrases eventually led to the name ‘buckslip,’ which refers to a printed sales or marketing sheet that typically measures at 4” x 9” or smaller. When they first appeared in mail packages, they were about the size of the US dollar bill, which calls to the mind the buck/dollar connection. Buckslips date back to the 40s. They are now a bit larger than the standard US dollar bill.
The buckslip’s origins include the military, where routing slips were used to send orders. Harry Truman’s famous “the buck stops here” motto might also cross your mind when you hear the name. One thing’s for sure—they grab your attention just like currency (and it pays to use them).
Regardless of its name and origin, the buckslip has long been a valuable promotional tool. Commonly used to advertise an offer or sale in a direct mailing, these convenient tools are generally dollar-sized, and conveniently fit inside an envelope. This means they can be sent along as promotional items with your store mailings, receipts, greeting cards, statements, contracts, and so much more. If you are planning a major sale, product launch, or brand awareness campaign, buckslips might be your calling card.
Buckslips have a wealth of uses and customizations. You can choose from three distinct finishes: uncoated, glossy, and silk-matte. For an extra pump of pizzazz, opt for rounded corners. And with available perforation and UV coating, you’re sure to stand out in a competitive crowd.
