To keep the book block smoth and even, it is trimmed after assembly. We try to cut as little as possible thus we don't have a fixed numbers for you. On average it's less than 5mm.
Please do not put any images on that virtual 5mm. If we cut less than that you will end up with a tiny white space which doesn't look good. Instead please either add images to the project edge or keep them 1.5cm/0.6in away so that after trimming there is a nice space.
Our crease and fold quality is really good and narrow (0.8mm) but please do not put important images like faces running across the fold.
