A file that is heading to your local sheffield printers requires setting up correctly to ensure that the work is printed edge to edge by either lithographic (litho) or digital printing. This often starts with adding the correct bleed area and crop marks.
A bleed of 3 - 5mm is commonly required. This 3 - 5mm accounts for each of the four sides of the page, therefore you should add 6 or 10 mm to the width and height of the document, for example:
A6 = 105mm x 148mm
A5 = 210mm x 148mm
A4 = 210mm x 297mm
A3 = 420mm x 297mm
420mm + 10 mm = 430mm
In addition to bleed, you should also add a margin to the edges of the document to avoid having your objects look as if they are about to fall of the page or even worse actually get cropped off when the document is trimmed! The amount of margin is personal preference, 5mm or 10mm is usually used depending on the size of the overall design.
