File Specifications

Please scroll down to download one of our free templates.

Bleed Format

Please ensure your file has the following dimensions:

6.20'' x 4.20''

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:

6'' x 4''

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)

I always print my large posters through ChilliPrinting. Great turnaround time and quality.

Loved the posters I ordered and the quick turnaround. The colors look exactly like my design and I will definitely be ordering from you all again.

Very helpful guidelines to make sure my posters are printed just the way I need them.

My bulk poster order turned out great! I am very pleased with the quality and turnaround time.

The print & paper quality is excellent. The order arrived sooner than expected & the packaging kept the posters in perfect order in spite of the weather encountered on the way. I will reorder & highly recommend the posters.

Ordering process is very simple & quality of printed product is great!

Great products. Great service.

My order is always complete, on time and correct!

Great company. Great products. Great quality, pricing, and turnaround time. I'm pleased every time.

High quality products at a reasonable price. Very happy with them.

I'm very satisfied with the consistent product Chilliprinting puts out. I had previous concerns with their packaging and shipping but they have made some changes so that the posters don't get damaged.

As always great service, turnaround & quality!

One again, Chilli Printing are amazing! Every time I have ordered, the experience has been great! Keep up the awesome work!!

Very helpful customer service.

Everything was excellent and I will be sending more orders for posters very soon.

I have used Chilli Printing for three jobs and have been pleased with every experience from the customer service when ordering through the final delivery. Thank you for your excellent services.

From beginning to end the process was simple for me to order with you! I could see how maybe some of the info would be confusing for a novice designer / orderer. Maybe some resources to help better describe different paper choices and formats. Not even necessary though - my experience was amazing and I'll definitely be back to order more. Thank you!

This was our second order and everything was perfect!

The quality of the product is quite good. But I was especially impressed with the customer service. Great job!

I am extremely satisfied with the services. Extremely high quality prints, shipped in a timely manner, with the *** even reaching out to help with my order. I have never received a better service in whole sale.

Highly recommended to others. Pricing, speed, and service are all top-notch.

good speed and assistance. quality is good as is price.

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.
