    Help with Bleed/Document setting for Press Optimized printing




      This is my first time using InDesign to create a full page full color print ad. The specifications I was given for layout dimensions is:


      This program is printed OFFSET on matte stock at 133 lpi.

      Dimensions are listed as follows (W x H)

      Trim Size 7.5” x 10”

      Full Page Bleed 7.5” x 10”


      In Document Setup would I customize the page size to 7.5 x 10 and also adjust the bleed settings? What would my bleed setting be? 1 inch all around?

      Also, when saving the digital PDF file should I include the bleed marks for the print company?


      Thanks in advance for any help with this. I am not a graphic designer and have no clue what any of this means!
