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

We need PDF files with their page order exactly as the printed booklets. That means, page 1 of the PDF should be the front cover, page 2 of the PDF should be the inside of the front cover, page 3 the first content page, and so on.... till the second last page being the inside of the back cover and finally the last page the back cover.

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.

Another project executed by Chilli that went smooth smooth smooth! Highly recommend Chilli....great staff support combined with latest technology makes for a great printing partner!

Chilli has hit my deadlines 100% of the time...for more than 5 years! Highly recommend!

The service was great, I just wanted an option to have our calendars printed on a little heavier paper. Thanks

Great prices, quality, and service. Carefully packaging makes me not worry about any damage.

I like the ease of placing an order. Straightforward and uncomplicated process. Quick turn on quality prints with fast shipping, can't be beat!

I just came across Chilli Printing after needing a print job with quick turnaround. I was hesitant but decided to give it a chance. I am so glad I did! The price, quality and turn-around time were everything I was looking for. You have a new customer in me.

Great service. Reasonable prices. Been using them for years and plan to continue using them moving forward. Quality prints.

After a bit of a rough start, the product and the service were great. I've been searching for a company to print my historic maps for years. Glad I found you.

I have ordered several times from Chilli Printing. Easy ordering and fast delivery. Top-notch service. Thank You!

ChilliPrinting provided excellent customer service, (the emails were so personal!!) quick turn around time (amazed at the quickness from placing the order to when it landed at our office), and extremely reasonable prices. Next time we have a substantial project to print we will be in touch.

I wanted to make gift wrap with some of my artwork. The 80# poster paper @ 24x38 inches was perfect. Top quality results! Packing & shipping did a great job — no damage to 1000 posters—4 boxes. Can’t beat the bulk pricing for superb quality printing/materials. Glad I found you!

I've relatively new to my current job where we order from ChilliPrinting. Ordering on the website is straightforward and very easy to do. I wish all websites were that easy to use!

Great printing quality. Received my order quickly

As always, prompt and efficient service from Chilli. Our posters are top-quality and beautifully printed. Cannot recommend them highly enough.

Customer service is on point! Answered all my questions. My printed materials looked amazing.

Amazed at how inexpensive the prices are for such quality work.

Incredible service as always.

Excellent price and fast service they really different from other printing services, the only issue no telephone number for questions

Great price, terrific quality, fast shipping

They did a great job and were very helpful!

Chill Printing review services did an excellent job of making sure the alternating color panels on a 7 fold accordion brochure folded exactly on the color edges. The final product was excellent and the pricing was remarkable.

I had a great experience on this order with ChilliPrinting customer service. I used the Live Chat to talk to a representative, and then later received a follow-up email about my order. Absolutely fantastic.

Just letting you know that my map prints are perfect as was the whole entire process. Your company is amazing and wonderful to work with. The sample pack was also stellar. I am so excited to have found you.

AGAIN, ANOTHER PERFECT ORDER! Still amazed at how easy their ordering system is. Plus the consistent quality is hard to beat!

chilliprinting is awesome! Their customer support is top notch and responsive, the care for the client is apparent, and the product looks great!!!

Overall amazing experience! chilliprinting is the best. I wish it wasn’t extra to have them cut it to a custom size but it’s worth it especially considering their prices are cheap.

Excellent quality and prices. Careful packaging without worrying about damage. Shipping speed is faster than expected.

ChilliPrinting is fast, efficient, great quality, and well-priced!

very good customer service and quick delivery

We couldn't be more pleased with our first order from Chilli Printing. Our calendars came out great and at an incredible low price. Thank you guys so much.

Great customer service, I called in to check over my order, and was pleased to find a pleasant person on the phone, that was more than happy to help me with my order.

I’ve been using Chiliprinting for a couple of years now and they never disappoint! Quality products, affordable prices and always fast turn around….what more could you ask for!! I highly recommend Chiliprinting for all your print needs.

Chilli never fails to satisfy! Great service, great prices and on top of that Great Quality!

Great service and quick turnaround. Highly recommended!

Great experience with ChilliPrinting customer service. They helped make my project a success!

Awesome quality. I received my order quicker then the scheduled date which was extremely convenient. Overall 2 thumbs up! Keep being awesome!

Best customer support ever. I have had so much help for a lot of personal difficulties I was having with the posters I was ordering. They are really a great company with great products!

We had no issues with our order this year. Customer service was very helpful with a few of my questions and the posters turned out really nice! Looking forward to ordering next year!! Thanks!!

Incredibly fast service. Compared to other printing vendors we've used in the past our order was printed and mailed to us in just a few days. Faster processing and shipping across the country than some vendors here with us in California! Would definitely use again.

I recommend this company for brochure printing. I've ordered twice from Chilli Printing, doubling my order quantity and they have consistently produced a good quality brochure and it was delivered extremely fast. The *** Illustrator templates are accurate and make it easy for layout. I like how it can all be done myself online without having to contact support.

At first I was a little annoyed with the ordering process as I feel the additional professional review option is a little hidden on the checkout screen. Customer service was great to talk with and they handled my situation to the best of their ability. The product arrived on time and the quality is top notch! I am impressed with both the price and quality. Will be ordering from again.

This is the third time we have used your printing services and been so so pleased. We appreciate your service for our nonprofit organization. Thank you!

This entire process was amazing. The quality of our booklets was better than anything else that we have ever ordered. I would highly recommend this company.

Great customer service - quick turnaround - great product and prices. My new go-to for bulk poster printing!

Absolutely amazing quality, my posters look so incredible. I couldn't be happier, thank you!

So fast, high quality, low prices. What's not to love!

Excellent quality, prices, and easy steps. Friendly customer service helps customers anytime with chat. Packing is also good never worry.

I ordered booklets for a presentation. They were delivered in a timely manner and looked good.

The best quality for the best price that I have found anywhere!

Always put out a great product. Production and shipping times are never delayed. Very satisfied with Chilliprinting.

Every order is perfect! If there ever is a problem, (mostly with damage in transit), customer service handles the problem swiftly.

Customer service was great in pointing me in the right direction to figure out how to execute my project, and the paper samples made me confident that I was getting the right product. The turnaround time was great, good quality printing, and good price! I will definitely print with Chilli again.

Highly recommend! We were looking for a new printing company and couldn't have been happier with results. Initial communications were prompt and helpful, pricing was good, delivery was earlier than expected, the items packed thoughtfully with great care and the finished product looked great! 5 stars!

Phenomenal Service, Outstanding Print Quality the best experience I have ever had.

I appreciated the excellent customer service as well as the first rate printing job. Thank you :)

Very happy with how my booklets turned out. Will be placing another order soon. Arrived in a timely fashion.

I understand every time we are not going to get as lucky, but our 8-10 day production schedule turned into 2 days this time! Obviously the quality still needs to be there, and it was. Good work.

Good quality and fast service. Would recommend

ChiliPrinting is fantastic! They printed just what we wanted, at a reasonable price and it was SO FAST! We've used them muliple times for a folded poster and will do a reprint when we need more!

Loved the quick online proofing system. Turnaround time was exactly as promised.

Products are awesome! Wished there were more discount codes

I've been getting my print work done with these guys for over 5 years. They are reliable, efficient, and cost effective!

Best in the business for posters!

Great service and quality. Easy to place the order. The package always has no damage with careful packing.

Just placed my first order from ChilliPrinting last month and all my expectations were met. The quality of my posters looked great The quoted delivery dates were right on time I was was kept dated on the status of my order often. The packaging of my order kept the posters in prefect condition once received. Placing another today Great Job ***** !!

Highly recommend! Great quality product and fast turnaround.

I've had several products made and have nearly no complaints. The business cards could have been packaged a little tighter to not cause damage in transit but ever considering that, mine had no damage. Other than that, I am extremely pleased with the quality and timeliness.

Highly impressed with the price and quality of my product! Will order from here again

Great quality, great turn around.

Great prices, great quality and great customer service. THANK YOU!

Very satisfied with this company. High quality products. Fast delivery.

Great quality at a good value!

QUICK TURN AROUND, GREAT PRODUCT AND SERVICE
