a page design where the illustrations run off the edge of the trimmed page The double page spreads are all bleeds.

an illustration that runs off the edge of the paper

overtrimmed margins when binding, cutting off the edge of the type

ink that changes colour, often by chemical reaction when laminating

â–  verb to print something, or be printed, so that part of it is cut off by the edge of the page

COMMENT: Bleeding has the advantage of increasing the size of illustrations on the paper, but has the disadvantage of needing larger printing sheets in a sheet-fed press, to allow for the extra trim. Normally 3mm of print beyond the trimmed edge should be allowed to make sure the bleed is correct.
