Leave 1/8” Margin Around Page – Many times, when we have a lot of content, we are tempted to put as much on the page as we can. And if we have a huge amount of text, we think getting the text as close to the edge of the page as possible will help preserve room for more pictures and such. And then we find ourselves putting our pictures as close to the edge as possible, too.
But, did you know that you need to leave a 1/8 margin between the edge of the page and anything you don’t want to get cut off? Yes, the gray box around the page shows you where your page should be cut off in production. But the page cutters can sometimes go slightly over that marked spot. To be safe, make sure you have a 1/8 inch margin around your entire page.
