Text around edges

Just a quick portfolio question, how much space should i leave between the edge of the page and my text so it wont be lost on the page? i have a tab like look to the top of my portfolio but i dont wanna have a boarder around the page

hard to say without seeing the layout. post up a sample page, and it would be much easier to comment. I assume you are talking about how much space from a readability POV, rather than a printing one?


yeah i’m not worried, but i’ll have to post a sample tomorrow at work if i get a change since my template is on the server there

i just didn’t know if there was a general rule of thumb about it
