      How do I add bleeding edge to flyer design that is of size 8x10 or 8x11

          Assuming it's a two page flyer (one sheet printed one or both sides), add 1/8inch to each edge when you set up the new document.

          The example below assumes the TPS (trimmed page size) is 8 x 10 inches.

            In order to accommodate paper cutting variation that may occur after printing, ink that touches the outer edge of your finished leaflet (an image, line or panel of color, for example) must be provided for by extending it beyond its trimmed size, usually by 1/8" per side.  This is indicated by marking the bleed allowance as shown below. The crop marks shown here are heavier than normal. They should be hairline thin, if possible.

              Since the concept of bleed allowance may be new to you, there is an additional bit of advice I would like to offer. When dealing with bound books and booklets, bleed allowance is provided at the head, foot and the side of the page opposite the spine. The exception: books that have Mechanical Bindings (spiral wire, perfect, wire-o, etc.) which consist of separate leaves, require bleed allowance at the spine, as well. If uncertain, check with the lithographer.
