Illustrator - 5 cm bleeds somehow?


Question

Is there any way to set bleeds in Illustrator of 5 cm? If I try to set it, it won't let me and tell that 2.5cm is the maximum allowed amount.

But the print company I'm going to send my prints to requires the files with 50mm bleeds.

How can I trick Illustrator into doing what I want?

Illustrator documents can have a very large document size that can encompass the entire layout with the bleeds, then place crop marks that show the trim and bleeds. In other words, don't rely on the document or artboard size itself, do the whole thing manually.
