When you want to print something to the edge of a page, you must print it on a larger sheet of paper, which is trimmed back to where the page is supposed to end. Anything that goes to the edge must continue past the edge (this is the bleed) so if the paper is not trimmed perfectly there will not be an ugly and noticable white line beside it.
Thanks for the help. I see the bleed line the images do actually go past the bleed line. I was a little confused about how an a red bar could not have a bleed, or could have short bleed.

Is it possible that my InDesign file is OK, and the bleed stuff is getting messed up when I print to a PDF? Thanks for any help. This printing stuff is giving me a headache.
