Have you ever noticed professionally printed materials that came out all wrong? They looked like projects with RGB low res images combined with PMS solid color and CMYK color engines reproducing the same color red in different hues or poor quality jpegs saved as eps files hoping that they are scalable to billboard size resulting in one inch square pixels looking like 8 bit graphics for LED games. Even when the graphics are of good design the final step was missing resulting in the piece being under cut and not properly aligned or finished as expected all because there was no bleed.

Setting up a bleed in a layout program is really simple, even with complicated die cuts for packaging, pop-ups, displays, and other dimensional projects.
