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.

Perfect for CD Cover Inserts

Remembering the good times! If you have a photo album saved on your disc, this is the perfect time to create a custom stapled CD booklet. Whether you want to print CD inserts, or create cheap custom booklets that are stapled, we offer many options and sizes. Our CD booklet printing comes in different paper types, and from 8 to 320 pages.

File Specifications

Please scroll down to download one of our free templates.

Bleed Format

Please ensure your file has the following dimensions:

4.95'' x 4.95''

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:

4.75'' x 4.75''

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)

Great service, fantastic Turnaround

Love working with this company

Great product! Great customer service and the prints turned out exactly as I pictured they would. I will be coming back for my next order!

Consistently ChilliPrinting delivers the highest quality posters for the best price. I wouldn't use anyone else.

Excellent service! Only issue is clear guidance on templates for custom size prints, we used the next size up and scaled down to match our size, but it didn't work quite right. But the rep helping me was great and fixed the files for me.

Great product, they helped with my art to ensure it was modified correctly to be made as well as can be.

Order and printing was done professionally and quick.

Always quality posters. Over 10 bulk orders with one problem that was resolved immediately. Terrific company.

After a terrible experience with GotPrint, I decided to purchase an order with your company. I could not be more thrilled with the result. The colors and details are perfect. The order was packed securely and emails and questions were quickly answered. I will be ordering more posters in the immediate future and will recommend you to my designer coworkers. Thanks again!

Everything was PERFECT the wait time, the simplicity of the website, and the quality is everything I could have wished for. Simply amazing!!! Thank you!

Great customer service. Fast shipping and a great product. What else can you ask for. Thanks again.

ChilliPrinting is my "go to" printer. The team at ChilliPrinting always provides excellent customer service from guidance with ordering, templates, etc., to delivery and product quality. Thank you.

This was my second time ordering 18x24" posters from ChilliPrinting in less than a month, and I could not be more thrilled with the results. The printing is top notch. All 100 posters came without a single flaw and were carefully packaged so that none were damaged. I have already ordered from them again, and will continue to do so in the future.

This was my third time ordering with Chili Printing within the last two months. Each time I have ordered 100 18x24 inch posters, and each time the order is perfect. The quality of the print is perfect and the posters are carefully packaged and shipped so that there is no damage. Will be ordering from them again in the future.

Consistently the best poster printer I have used for 24 x 36 inch posters. I can't recommend them enough.

My go to partner for printing.

The poster turned out so much better that I expected, and the process was quick and painless! 10/10 would print again :D

Fantastic service. Quick turnaround

I have been a ChilliPrinting customer for years. My posters are always well done and delivered on time.

The customer service is fantastic. Any questions were answered promptly and any issues were dealt with immediately. The product turned out great and arrived in a timely fashion. I was given updates throughout the whole process so that I could track the production and shipping and know exactly when to expect my order. I will definitely be ordering again!

ChilliPrinting is my go-to for bulk posters. Always on time and great quality.

I love how reliable the printing is. I always use your company.

I've only ordered prints from your company twice, but I will return with future projects. This is an excellent service and has yet to disappoint. Thank you Chili Team! Keep up the great work.

As with the last 6-7 orders...I can't give any constructive criticism since the orders went flawlessly. The calendars were great quality, shipped ahead of schedule, and last, but certainly not least, the process is EASY!!!

Again, a great job. Hard to give constructive criticism where I can find no fault. Easy to order, ahead of schedule, and a great GREAT PRICE...what else can I reasonably ask for with any order???

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