What does bleed mean in printing process?

Bleed is a term used for the amount of ‘overlap’ of the image you need to setup in your artwork when taking it to print. There is almost always error in registration from where a printer prints and then where it cuts. A small amount of bleed means any minute error will not show up around the finished cut line. Generally no more than 3mm bleed is required for your printing requirements
