When you create a digital file with Photoshop or InDesign or illustrator you need to create a BLEED.
ENTIRE DOCUMENT WITH BLEED = 5.125 X 7.125
Bleed is a printing term that is used to describe a document which has images or elements that touch the edge of the page, extending beyond the trim edge and leaving no white margin. When a document has bleed, it must be printed on a larger sheet of paper and then trimmed down.
Here is a video that explain it well.
This video below shows how the printer cuts the paper at its final size in a cutting machine. You can see the little strips that come out of the machine. That’s is the bleed!
And here is again a template that shows how to build your file.
