afphoto with bleed marks for 3"x4" invitations


Recommended Posts

Hi, 

Im in the middel of creating some wedding invitations, but getting stuck on creating with bleed marks. I wanted to create them myself, to save some money. So that rules out buying either designer og publisher, when I have af photo. 

Any good recommendation to how to do it?

I have added a dummy picture of the size for the invitation we intent to use. 

It needs to fit in 4" on the height. 

Best

Rasmus

Hi @RasmusDB

Affinity Photo does not allow you to set or export a bleed. You need either Affinity Designer or Publisher for this.
To manually create this area and set marks you would need to expand the canvas and then insert crop and/or bleed marks.

It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.

I have put the picture into a designer file and added 1 inch bleed. You can see the export result in the PDF file.

Alternatively to what Komatös already said and if you are going to print them yourself, take also a look if your printer driver possibly may support bleed settings.

Or in case you have some other tool like Acrobat etc. you can therein modify a PDF accordingly, or use some online service for adding bleeds to a PDF. - See for example ...
