Did you lay out in the order size?
Lay out your artwork according to the order size.
We do not scale your artwork. Lay out in the same size as the order size.
The size must be the cutting size.
How to set up the size on Photoshop
Set the width and the height 6 mm larger than the cutting size.
Each 3 mm margin extended is cut off as bleed.
Photoshop does not have the fuction to create trim marks.
Make guides on the cutting line.In case of non-standard size, please indicate the finished size in 'Note to GRAPHIC.'

In case of A4, locate vertical guides 3mm and 213 mm from the left, and horizontal guides 3 mm and 300 mm from the top.
