How can I determine how much bleed to use?

I'm starting to do designs meant for printing, but I'm fairly new to this medium so I don't really understand how bleed works and how much bleed should I specify for:- Business cards- Large format prints (42 inches and bigger)- MagazinesShould I extend the design into the bleed areas?
