Page Count Guide

How to Choose the Right Page Count

With booklet printing the cover pages are always counted separately, even if printed on the same paper as the inside pages (self-cover). The 4 cover pages are:

  • The front cover
  • The inside of the front cover (usually used for the table of content or kept blank)
  • The inside of the back cover (usually used for the imprint, copyright notes, index or further editorial notes. May also be left blank)
  • The back cover

For technical reasons the entire page count must always be devidable by four. Thus, please count your content pages, add 2-4 cover pages and in case you're ending up with a number not devidable by four, please round up to the next available page count by adding blank pages to your layout.

File Specifications

Please scroll down to download one of our free templates.

Bleed Format

Please ensure your file has the following dimensions:

8.70'' x 11.20''

After printing we will trim off a 0.10'' bleed on each side. Any background elements or color should reach into this bleed area and last till the very edge of the file. Text and other important graphic elements should keep a safety distance to the inside.

Trim Format (Final Product Format)

Your product will be delivered with the following dimensions:

8.5'' x 11''

File Dimensions

Please first choose a format from the calculator to see the exact file dimensions.

Bleed 0.1'' (1/10'')

This margin is essential to compensate trimming tolerances. The bleed will usually be trimmed off completely. Please ensure that background images and any bleed objects, which are supposed to reach to the edge of your page, extend into this margin to avoid thin white edges after trimming.

Safety Area 0.08'' (1/12'')

Additionally, please ensure that text and other important graphic elements are positioned at least 0.08'' away from the bleed to the inside. In most cases it doesn't look aesthetically if text stucks too closed to the edge.

Resolution

We print with a 177lpi screen, which provides a resolution of 354 dpi. In order to obtain best results, your file should have a resolution of at least 300 dpi (dots per inch). Files for large formats, like for instance posters, may go below this threshold, however, in no case your resolution should be less than 150 dpi.

Color settings

CMYK is the standard color mode for full color offset printing. Thus, please use the CMYK color mode when creating your file. If, however, we receive files with any different color setting, our system will automatically convert them to CMYK. This may result in slight color deviations which will not be accepted as complaints since we cannot know the original color you had in mind. To avoid color issues, please use our color profile available further down this page.

Inking

The total of the percent values of the four color channels Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black must not exceed 300%. If it does, it will cause an above-average ink application and may not dry properly. As a consequence your printed products may stick together and tear on separation.
For black or gray color please only use the K channel (K = key = black). If your fonts are using three or more color channels, shadows may appear on the prints making the text difficult to read.
To obtain a deep saturated black of strokes and fillings, 40% Cyan and 100% Black are adequate (40/0/0/100). Alternatively you may also use the values 30/30/30/100.

Fonts

For offset printing, please always use Postscript fonts. In rare cases TrueType fonts may cause issues with many professional printing workflows. If TrueType fonts are unavoidable they should be converted to outlines, paths or curves (this function may have different names according to the used software).

File Formats

We prefer multipage PDF files, alternatively you may send us EPS, JPEG or TIFF files. Adobe Photoshop users should always save their files as JPEG or TIFF. If a Photoshop PDF is required, please use Acrobat Distiller to create the PDF (you may download our Acrobat JobOptions further down this page). Please never save a PDF directly from Photoshop.

Page Order

In your PDF file, the first page should be the front and the second page the back. Important for folded double sided products: The first page of your PDF must always include the front panel of your folded product (means the page which is supposed to be the front page after folding)

Frequently Asked Questions About Booklets Printing

Click question below to read the answer
Can you print perfect bound catalogs and booklets?
Yes, for booklet printing we offer both common binding types: stapled (saddle stitched) or perfect binding. However, for production and technical reasons, perfect binding is only available for booklets with52 pages or more since they must have a certain thickness.
What type of paper is used for catalogs, magazines and booklets?
Since catalogs typically have a higher page count, it is advisable, but not required, to use thinner paper stock. Generally, for booklet printing or magazine printing, a glossy coated paper provides better contrast and will let the listed products or services shine in a better light.
How many pages does a booklet have?
Our booklets have a minimum of 8 pages and up to a maximum of 320 pages. For technical reasons, the page count must always be divisible by four (i.e. 8, 12, 16, 20, 24).
How soon can I get my booklet order?
Depending on your custom booklet options, such as page count, paper stock and quantity, the production time will vary. Typically, it takes between 2-3 weeks, however check out our calendar in the pricing calendar above, to find an accurate estimate.
Will the price per booklet drop if I order more?
Yes! We use offset printing technology which allows us to create high quality, cheap printing solutions. This means that the production set up costs are always the same, no matter if we printed only one item or thousands. Therefore, the higher the quantity or prints, the lower the cost per piece.

We're top-rated by our customers. Read what people say about us.

There is absolutely nothing you can do to improve! Its already perfect! Thank you all for your wonderful service!

18x24 posters came out great. Shipping has been much better. In the past i have received some orders with bent corners but I feel it has been better and the shipping department seems to be taking better care of the packing.

I often keep my expectations low because I'm often disappointed when orders come in from a new company that I haven't ordered from before. But this order came in perfectly. The print quality is excellent!

As always, outstanding quality - fast turn around. Bravo!

Overall a very simple ordering process. I like the multiple production & shipping options. Quality has been excellenT

We love the service we get from Chilli Printing. The product is amazing and the time it takes to receive the product is very reasonable its within a week and that helps us out a lot. Especially when we have a lot of deadlines. Thank you Chilli Printing!!

I would like to provide an area for you to improve, but this order was very typical of the orders that I have made in the past. Everything was easy, efficient, high quality and delivered ahead of schedule. I will continue to send all of my large poster jobs to you without hesitation.

Thank you so much Chilli printing!! We love working with you as always!!

You provided a great service, fast and we appreciate the quality!

We love Chilli Printing. Thank you so much for all your work.

Once you have done the first order, it's super easy. We always receive our shipments in a timely manner.

Chilli Printing was not only provided fast service but also very affordable! We would be thrilled to work with them again for all our poster needs!

Easy to use website, good prices, quick turnaround times, and great printing quality add up to a 5-star rating.

Order procedure was clear and smooth, production time and shipping were timely, and the finished products look great. There were a few that had bent corners but thanks to the overrun that was supplied, I had enough posters with perfect corners.

The job came out excellent again!

Once again, the quality was superb! Great Job!!

I was very satisfied with the support and guidance that I received from ***, Director of Marketing along with the rest of the customer support team. They provided very good feedback on the initial review of the product to the final production. The end product looks great!. I would strongly recommend ChilliPrinting to others. ***

Super results once again, with amazingly-fast delivery!

Printing was done well and quickly. Item was shipped promptly and arrived with no issues. Prints were packed as rolls (not flat). This probably cuts shipping cost (which is good), but once prints are opened it is difficult to re-pack them if they need to be stored.

Quality & delivery expectations are always met!

We love chilli printing. We are in need of some spiral bound planners and you guys dont have an option for those, we would like them.

For anyone seeking a printer, look no further. These guys are the best! Their website is simple to use, customer support always ready at the helm, print quality on-point, prices ridiculously low and they are always consistent. I should know, been a customer for 2+ years, and I will not trade them for the world! Thanks, Chilli!!

The team member were great to work with.

Very satisfied with my poster order. Super fast production, arrived much earlier than expected.

Online chat service was excellent. Quality and speed of print for posters was excellent! Best pricing of all vendors I found also!

Company turn around time was excellent. The paper was much thinner then I imagined it would be. I didn't see a thicker paper printing option. But service was great. Thx

Print quality was great, communication about job status was detailed, packaging was very secure!

Easy online ordering,excellent price, print quality, and turnaround times all add up to a great printing company.

The posters Chili printing provides are incredible. Their quality and turnaround time are second to none. We have done at least 10 or 12 posters in the last 2 years for the local groups in our area . Each time we open a new shipment we are so excited and happy with the quality of their products .

Fast turn around! Great quality!

Totally satisfied. Would definitely recommend

Love working with you guys, great price, great quality, fast shipping

It was good work in a timely fashion.

This was my first time using ChilliPrinting and I was very impressed with the quality of the product I ordered! Great price, great service, great product. ChilliPrinting will be my new go to for my poster printing needs! Thank you!

It was very easy working on this project and look forward to using you again.

I received excellent customer support from ***, following a frustrating series of upload attempts (that were no fault of ChiliPrinting). *** was able to help me resolve the issue. Because of his help, we also did not experience any delay in receiving schedule posters for our team's season. I will always recommend ChiliPrinting to others and will be a return customer!

The customer service was fantastic!

Love the quality of the prints and the accurate - and usually ahead-of-schedule - turnaround!

I have ordered from Chilli Printing multiple times over the past 3 years and they are consistently good quality and timely.

Chilliprinting always does exceptional work. We order from them several times a year and are never disappointed with the quality of the products we receive. Their customer service is also top notch.

I am a regular customer of Chilli Printing. They make the process easy and efficient.

I priced posters at $*** a piece through my local printer. Vista print was not much cheaper. I luckily found Chiliprint who came in at well under half the price. Coupled with the excellent customer service and design work assistance, I will be using Chiliprint from now on.

Excellent quality and super fast turnaround! Always pleased with my orders and customer service is always quick to fix any mistakes.

I have ordered a few times and very happy with the service and turn a round time Website is easy to work with. I am not the best when it comes to the computer but it was very easy to navigate and place the order

Great service and speedy delivery!

Ive had some shipping issues in the past with some of the posters getting damaged in the past. Chilliprinting has resolved all issues with good customer service and have not had any issues since. Thank you so much

always satisfied with my orders!

I have ordered from Chilli Printing many times now and I am always super satisfied with the quality and timely turnaround.

I received excellent customer service and products. The response time was quick and any issues I had with my orders were resolved in a professional timely manner. I would recommend this service to anyone if they could have the same experience as I did.

Chilliprinting does a fine job with printing!

I love working with you! You do an amazing job, have amazing people to chat with for help, and get it done in a quick turnaround. I'm not sure what suggestions I have, except to hire more people like the person I chatted with when placing my order.

The packaging is a bit tricky, I ripped a couple of my posters trying to get them unraveled. But on my second order I knew how it worked so it was easier and no rips.

The website is easy to follow and anytime I have needed customer service, they have been very helpful.

Once again, Chilli Printing has come through with amazing results! The products arrived 3 days before they were supposed to. Great job!

The only small complaint I have is that I didn't know that the posters would not come flat. Just had to flatten them here for a few days. However the order came a few days earlier than expected so there was no actual problem. Also I do wish you had heavier paper choices for posters AND in the larger sizes where you do (140#) there were no samples in the kit you sent.

Excellent quality products Wish the shipping was quicker but the prices make it possible for my small business to operate!

We were completely satisfied with the posters we had printed! The quality and cost were unparalleled! We definitely plan to use them again!

Have repeatedly ordered from chilliprinting. Have never had any issues.

The ordering process is simple and pricing is very affordable! I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of printing! I would definitely recommend and will continue to use ChiliPrinting for my printing needs!

Chill printing has become my go to printer due to their excellent customer service, quality, and speed. If they can keep doing what they are doing they would prove to be one of the best online printers around.

Quick, quality products every time.

I am very satisfied with how crisp the details came out on this printing. I highly recommend using this printing service.

Good price, fast shipping and quality pricing what else can you ask for?

I am a loyal customer of ChilliPrinting. Always great prices, quality, and service.

ChilliPrinting has great prices & excellent quality for online poster printing. Website is easy to use. Turnaround time is quick. They are our go to printer for our poster needs.

Your customer support went above and beyond in helping me get this together without making me feel dumb for not knowing exactly how to give you the size and dimensions of the photos being used. The art department did an amazing job of cropping the photos to the right specs without losing the feel of the images. 100% satisfied.

We love chilli printing. The product turns out great and the shipping is super fast!! Highly recommend
