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.

Awesome as always, there was a delay in shipping but I understand you have no control over what FedEx does!

I love working with ChilliPrinting! They're always quick and great quality, all for a great price!

I order all of my bulk posters through ChilliPrinting. The quality is great and I always receive many compliments on them.

I highly recommend ChilliPrinting for bulk posters.

Easy to order and fast shipping. I will use this service again. Thank You!

I used the online chat service before placing my order and they provided amazing support and help me out until completing my order. Great service!

I am very happy with my bulk posters order from ChilliPrinting. Good quality and delivered on time.

Fast Shipping, good price and great quality. What else can you ask for? Thanks Chilli Printing!

My company has been using ChilliPrinting for many years now and they keep getting better. Great work!

I don't know how I stumbled across ChiliPrinting, but I am so glad I did. The customer service is outstanding and they were very patient with all my questions. I ordered a sample before ordering in bulk and was very pleased with the final product. I will be ordering from ChiliPrinting for my future poster projects.

Great quality & fast shipping every time. I have used Chili several times and they always come through with quality work.

The order was delivered fast, and nicely packaged. The posters look great and I'll be ordering again.

Consistent top-quality prints. My number one company for prints.

Order arrived earlier than expected. Customer was very happy about that

Over the years I've ordered thousands of posters from ChilliPrinting and I have been happy with every order. The price and quality are excellent and the customer service has always been top-notch. I have had some issues with packages being damaged in transit, but I consider that the fault of FedEx rather than ChilliPrinting, and CP has been good about getting me replacements when needed.

I have just recently discovered Chiliprinting and have already ordered several bulk printings. The customer service is awesome! Very thorough and helpful. I have not been disappointed with any of my orders. I only wish I had found out about them earlier. I would recommend them anytime. Thank you for your services!

The best printing company for posters.

Great service. Ordered posters with an easy process and fast delivery. Will use service again. Thank You!

I recently ordered a CD booklet and back cover. They turned out great! Again, another project I'm completely satisfied with. Looking for a vendor for your printing needs? Give Chiliprinting a try - you won't be disappointed.

Without a doubt, I will be ordering my posters, CD covers, etc. from Chiliprinting. I haven't been disappointed yet! Great color, excellent customer service, and great results.

Great quality. Great price. Great service.

great service, they answered all my questions promptly, the shipping was fast, and the quality was as good as it gets - very good!

High quality printing and fast customer service replies!

Ground shipping started to get slower than usual, and I'm glad to see ChilliPrinting updated their estimated arrival date calculator to reflect that. Very helpful!

Yet again, a great process all around. Easy ordering, fast service, and a great finished product. Hard to find fault...ok, it's not free...but it is still the best price around.

I have ordered several times from this company and it always go smoothly. I will order again. Thank You for the wonderful service and fast shipping.

Great customer service! Chili contacted us by email to check an instruction detail that was unclear. Our posters arrived early in perfect condition.

Completely satisfied with ordering process , the timely shipment and the finished product. Definitely recommend.
