I am making a New Year Standee and would like to know what the bleed space should be. I am making the creative in Illustrator. Kindly help
As a general rule of thumb always design with .125" (1/8") bleed. This is the most common standard for printers. Occasionally I'll get files with .0625" (1/16") of bleed but that's pretty uncommon.
1/8" is used so widely because it allows for a good amount of space for production to use without worrying about really thin margins for error.
