Printing resolution for Square L Menu Cards
When printing an image of large square size, it is crucial to include the right resolution of 210 x 210 mm at 300 ppi (pixels per inch). To ensure your printed products will look the way you intended, add a 3 mm bleed on all sides of your design. This will prevent your products to be delivered with a white border around the design. InDesign allows you to easily add bleed with their built in tool, but you would have to add it manually in Photoshop. Not sure how to add bleed the right way?
