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

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.

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

AMAZING! Customer service is fantastic. I’m totally new to printing and designing and their team was happy to help and supply a wealth of information. They are honest and their sample kit is great for figuring out what you want. They have the best prices by far and their posters are exactly as show to your pdf. Totally my new supplier for a long time!!

I am VERY pleased with my results. The instructions for submission were easy to follow. The pricing is very fair, my booklets arrived ahead of schedule, and most important of it, the quality was beyond my expectation. I wholeheartedly recommend ChilliPrinting!

Printed and shipped fast as lightning!

Excellent service! Excellent product!

I ordered the 14x3.5" accordion brocure. Excellent customer service! Very fast and quality product! I will definitely reorder!

Second order of posters—great product again. Timely and unbeatable price—well packed/shipped. Looking now at the 80 lb text gloss for printing/use as possible wrapping paper—maybe another product line you might promote/carry (might offer 70 lb paper if you do).

The only place that offered the size and number of folds that i could find and the quality and time frame was great. The adobe templates made it easy. We will be ordering again when our stock runs out. Thanks!

Everything went wonderfully! I did have a question when I ordered 2 posters and the Chat provided easy to understand answers right away. Also my order came faster than I thought it would which is always helpful. I'd certainly recommend your services to others.

Working with ChiliPrinting has been great - customer service was prompt and helpful regarding our pre-printing questions and provided strong guidance. We did have a couple of copies of our prints that were scuffed at the top of our boxes. We brought this to customer service's attention, and they promptly helped address the issue, which was great.

Was fully satisfied with the customer service I received, and the final product! Very communicative when I had a question that I emailed, and reassured me that it would be as I wanted.

From product selection, to file setup and delivery, everything was perfect!

We loved our order! As long as we are doing this type of job, you guys will be our choice. Great product for price that is 1/3 the price of a quote we had before finding y'all. Less than a 1/3 of the price if we end up not having to rush production at some point. You guys are awesome, thank you so much!

I love the ChilliPrinting experience. The variable pricing based on production and shipping speed is fantastic. And I always love my results.

Booklets came out perfect, quality was very good, and the turnaround was perfect.

The posters we ordered were delivered when they said they wiuld be and were printed on a nice heavy stuck. The print quality was excellent. And the price was the best of any i found amongst wholesale printers online.

I ordered several hundred posters. They were completed ahead of schedule, looked great, and were at an excellent price. One box and its contents got damaged during shipping and ChilliPrinting sent me replacements within a few days. I couldn't ask for anything more. ChilliPrinting rules!

Great quality, high-speed processing, and packing are perfect.

A seamless print operation from start to finish - to your door perfection. 5 STARS

ChilliPrinting makes ordering easy. I love that I can choose both production speed and shipping speed, to get my orders when I want for the price I want.

The turnaround time and quality of these posters I ordered was fantastic. Best deal I've found on the interwebs, thank you Chill Printing!

Great customer service... quick printing! Will use again! Thank you!

Absolutely fantastic customer service. When I read the other reviews I was skeptical because about all of then were so positive and that just cant be true! But it is! I sent an email and got an in depth response ASAP, and my order was quick, fast, easy and best of all affordable! The shipping was secure, and overall VERY satisfied with about everything there is. Thanks!

Thank you ChilliPrinting for your amazing service! I couldn't be happier with the quality and turnaround of your products.

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.
