1Ask your printer what bleed is required.– Billy KerrDec 5, 2017 at 14:32
"Ask your printer" is always the right answer. Not having the information from from the printer makes me wonder what else you haven't discussed -- screen frequency, total ink limit, font handling, recommended trapping, proof and press check arrangements, etc., etc., etc.– user8356Dec 5, 2017 at 18:59
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.
