When a term has more than one meaning, all explanations are displayed.
Bleed   Ink that extends beyond the edges of a piece of paper is said to bleed off the sheet. In a printing project usually a bleed will cost more to produce than a piece that does not bleed. A bleed requires paper larger than the finished size of the piece to print on. Usually paper with no bleed can be printed on a sheet the same size as the finished piece.
