  1. I understand the importance of bleed but my brochure ends up being smaller than letter size. Printer adjust the "bigger" .pdf (the one with crop bleeds) to paper size (Im printing directly on letter size paper) and when I cut it is not Letter size (it ends up being smaller because i cut it, obviously). I need it to be exacly a letter size. Is there anyway I can avoid that when printing directly on letter size paper? Thanks in advance!
