The safe print area defines the area on your design where all essential text and images should be placed. It acts as a buffer zone, ensuring that none of your important elements get trimmed off during the production process.
Why is the safe print area important?
Variations can occur in the trim position during printing and cutting. Without a safe print area, your text or images might get cropped, resulting in an unintended or less-than-ideal outcome. The safe area ensures your design looks just as you intended once it’s produced.
How can I see the safe print area in Printful’s Design Maker?
