One of the most important aspects of a print ready file is the safety margin. The safety margin is the 0.125 inches (1/8th in.) closest to the edge of the finished piece on all four sides. A sheet of paper can shift slightly when going through the printing process. While this doesn't always happen, it can happen, which is why it's important to keep all important text and graphics more than 1/8th of an inch away from the edge. To ensure nothing gets cut off during the printing process, please keep important text and graphics inside the safety margin of the piece.
