File Specifications

Please scroll down to download one of our free templates.

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)

For anyone seeking a printer, look no further. These guys are the best! Their website is simple to use, customer support always ready at the helm, print quality on-point, prices ridiculously low and they are always consistent. I should know, been a customer for 2+ years, and I will not trade them for the world! Thanks, Chilli!!

The team member were great to work with.

Very satisfied with my poster order. Super fast production, arrived much earlier than expected.

Online chat service was excellent. Quality and speed of print for posters was excellent! Best pricing of all vendors I found also!

Company turn around time was excellent. The paper was much thinner then I imagined it would be. I didn't see a thicker paper printing option. But service was great. Thx

Print quality was great, communication about job status was detailed, packaging was very secure!

Easy online ordering,excellent price, print quality, and turnaround times all add up to a great printing company.

The posters Chili printing provides are incredible. Their quality and turnaround time are second to none. We have done at least 10 or 12 posters in the last 2 years for the local groups in our area . Each time we open a new shipment we are so excited and happy with the quality of their products .

Fast turn around! Great quality!

Totally satisfied. Would definitely recommend

Love working with you guys, great price, great quality, fast shipping

It was good work in a timely fashion.

This was my first time using ChilliPrinting and I was very impressed with the quality of the product I ordered! Great price, great service, great product. ChilliPrinting will be my new go to for my poster printing needs! Thank you!

It was very easy working on this project and look forward to using you again.

I received excellent customer support from ***, following a frustrating series of upload attempts (that were no fault of ChiliPrinting). *** was able to help me resolve the issue. Because of his help, we also did not experience any delay in receiving schedule posters for our team's season. I will always recommend ChiliPrinting to others and will be a return customer!

The customer service was fantastic!

Love the quality of the prints and the accurate - and usually ahead-of-schedule - turnaround!

I have ordered from Chilli Printing multiple times over the past 3 years and they are consistently good quality and timely.

Chilliprinting always does exceptional work. We order from them several times a year and are never disappointed with the quality of the products we receive. Their customer service is also top notch.

I am a regular customer of Chilli Printing. They make the process easy and efficient.

I priced posters at $*** a piece through my local printer. Vista print was not much cheaper. I luckily found Chiliprint who came in at well under half the price. Coupled with the excellent customer service and design work assistance, I will be using Chiliprint from now on.

Excellent quality and super fast turnaround! Always pleased with my orders and customer service is always quick to fix any mistakes.

I have ordered a few times and very happy with the service and turn a round time Website is easy to work with. I am not the best when it comes to the computer but it was very easy to navigate and place the order

Great service and speedy delivery!

Ive had some shipping issues in the past with some of the posters getting damaged in the past. Chilliprinting has resolved all issues with good customer service and have not had any issues since. Thank you so much

always satisfied with my orders!

I have ordered from Chilli Printing many times now and I am always super satisfied with the quality and timely turnaround.

I received excellent customer service and products. The response time was quick and any issues I had with my orders were resolved in a professional timely manner. I would recommend this service to anyone if they could have the same experience as I did.

Chilliprinting does a fine job with printing!

I love working with you! You do an amazing job, have amazing people to chat with for help, and get it done in a quick turnaround. I'm not sure what suggestions I have, except to hire more people like the person I chatted with when placing my order.

The packaging is a bit tricky, I ripped a couple of my posters trying to get them unraveled. But on my second order I knew how it worked so it was easier and no rips.
