What are the bleed and safe zones?

Sticker Maker Bleed Safe

The bleed and safe zone lines are visible in the sticker editor, but what do they mean?

Safe Zone

The safe zone line is designated by a green line inside the die-cut. Keep all elements within this zone unless you want them to bleed off the edge of the sticker.

Bleed Zone

The bleed zone is designated by an orange line outside the die-cut. If you have a colour or element you would like to reach the edge of the sticker, please ensure it reaches this line. Die-cuts do shift a bit at the time of printing, and this bleed zone ensures that the colour goes all the way to the edge on all sides. Without it, you may have a small area of white on one side of your sticker.
