There are 3 areas... Trim Safety Bleed Trim is the final delivered size of the piece.If you order an A3 flyer, then the trim is the dimension of the A3 (29.7 x 42.0cm) Safety is the margin inside the trim. The area between the trim and where the actual content (text) starts. In most instances you'll want to leave at least 6 or 7mm between your content ...

Yes, the bleed will be completely trimmed. If you create an A4 flyer (210mm x 297mm), then you'll have to deliver at least 216x303 to your printer. That will get produced, and be trimmed to 210x297 again.

In the effects menu, select "Document Raster Effect Settings," and set the resolution to 300DPI. This should take care of the graininess, though I'm not sure if it will create a convincing glitter texture without some extra processing. You won't get the clumping and highlights like you see in your sample from Figma. I would recommend generating a large ...

If your screen isn't calibrated, then unless you know exactly what colours you are going to be using - I mean dialled-in Pantone colours specified by the client, not photographs - then you don't know where you're starting from, which makes it fairly pointless to try to decide between two finishing points. You'll find the out of gamut bits easily enough, but ...

The post is stating a fact. You dont need to see the correct color on your monitor. It is true that you dont need monitor calibration. Many designers can and do live without it. According to our printmasters its entirely normal that designers have turned their color management off; Apparently because that makes users more comfortable designing as color ...

Its better if you just go to a local print shop and look at actual paper samples. Sometimes you can find these in art supplies shops or even regular stationery/office supplies shops. The difference can be explained, but it is nothing like touching the actual surface of these. gloss can feel a bit like plastic when you touch it, because its got a shiny ...

In print documents, the swatch [Black] in InDesign is just plain CMYK black: CMYK(0, 0, 0, 100), so you can just use that in Illustrator. The special thing about [Black] is that InDesign offers the possiblity to turn on Preferences > Appearance of Black > Overprint [Black] Swatch at 100%. Useful for black text and black lines which (in most cases) should ...

In other words, whatever value you set for the bleed, that will be excess paper going outside your design and which will be physically cut off in production.

I would suggest you don't use an effect in Illustrator for this, nor use Illustrator to create the texture itself. Instead, find a good quality high resolution raster image of a nice glitter texture you like. Or alternatively make your own from scratch, using Photoshop or some other raster image editor. Copy and paste it, or place it in Illustrator, and ...

You could use a halftone for the blurred image. As long as the dots are fairly large, and the bitmap is quite high resolution (like 300ppi or more), it should be good enough for screen printing. There's need to make the halftone vector. Here's a quick example below: I blurred a black circle in Photoshop in greyscale mode, and then converted it to a bitmap ...

Some blending modes can not be achieved with ink on paper (CMYK). Screen is one such mode (as is Overlay, dodge, etc) You can't "lighten" an ink by placing another ink on top of it. If your Illustrator Document Color Mode is CMYK, this failure in the Screen blending mode should have been visible the moment you set the mode to Screen. You must be working in ...

If you violate a license agreement you are liable for whatever repercussions that may initiate. The other party could seek restitution or a judgement. Your question is no different than any question about breeching a contract or violating terms of an agreement. Even going so far as to say it's not any different than a question about a criminal act ... a la "...
