A bleed is used when the image needs to go all the way to the edge of the page. Printers have a maximum printable area that is slightly smaller than the paper size. Therefore, the image should extend 3mm over the finished size. When the paper is cut after printing, any white borders are eliminated.
CMYK stands for Cyan (blue), Magenta (red), Yellow and Key (black). It is the standard colour system used in printing and it involves mixing various percentages of these colours together in a dot, to produce the colours in an image.
Resolution is the term used to describe the number of dots or pixels used to display an image. When printing, a resolution of 300DPI (dots per inch) is needed to produce a crisp, clean image that can be blown up without comprising the quality.
Why buy cheap 'compatibles'?
Simple. You save money and you don't compromise on quality. Usually you'll get substantially more ink or toner, and remember, use of a compatible cartridge or toner DOES NOT invalidate your printer's warranty.
