Bleed is a printing term that is used to describe a document which has graphics that touch the edge(s) of the card. The artwork is printed on a larger sheet and then trimmed down to size. If you do not allow for a 1/8 of an inch bleed, any small mechanical variations will result with the artwork not running to the edge of the printed card. Bleeds ensure you get the results you need.
The example below shows how a business card document should be set up with bleed. This is the way you must set up your document if you intend to have graphics that extend all the way to the edges of the cut item.
