Some tips from Chilliprinting.com to ensure a good design for your political posters printed in bulk:
Political bulk posters prints always have a dominent picture. Therefore, first be sure that the picture of your political representative is the best one you can have. Indeed, as you'll want to place the person in the middle your poster, in rather big proportions, if you haven't the best picture ever, the eye-catch effect you are looking for will never occure, no matter how may posters you print even in bulk quantities.
Good bulk poster printings always have a good resolution (picture): 300 dpi is the minimum you need to ensure a pretty sharp printing in bulk.
Once printed, your bulk posters should look well and rather empty around your main character. Therefore, please ensure you limit the text volume on your poster and that the font won't be so prominent. However do not forget to put key indicator to guide your public.
Don't forget some add-ons' for your printed posters like QR codes or social media icons for example, just to be sure that your audience will be able to follow you.
We would recommend you to print your posters in bulk as big as possible, for exampe in a 24''x36'' format, in a rather solid paper, just to be sure that the quality of your bulk posters will be maintained even if the weather conditions are not ideal. This even more because political campaigns are usually running during a longer period than for event or promotion.
Promotion bulk posters printing
Some tips from Chilliprinting.com to ensure a good design for your promotion posters printed in bulk.
Promotion bulk posters are much more easy to design. The requirements are not so strict as they are for political bulk poster printing or even event bulk poster printing. Sure it is also very important to communicate the right message in the minimum space and to catch the attention of your public but it is more depending on the kind of promotion you are organizing. Let's take for example, the case of sport promotion bulk poster printing.
Bulk poster prints for promotion uses always have a picture of the sport team running. Make sure the picture is taken with enough distance to have enough space around for other important information. In the same way as for political election, please ensure that your picture is having at least 300dpi resolution otherwise it might turn blury during printing.
Bulk posters prints often have a nice moto and a reason for the public to participate to the sport promotion.
Design your bulk poster printings with enough space on it to show a fair price visible at a first sight. You wouln't want to disappoint your public afterwards, would you?
Normally the lower part of your bulk posters should be reserved for the logo of your sponsors and for social media icons or QR codes.
The standard size for promotion posters printed in bulk is 18x24'' on 80lb text stock.

File dimensions for bulk poster printing:
Please design your printing files in the format you require and allow an extra bleed of 0.1'' on each side clear of any text or other important elements and keep in mind that this bleed will be cut off during production.
Text elements in the edges of your bulk poster printings:
In order to avoid small white borders at the edge of your posters you should scale the background elements to the very edge of the design format, considering that a small part of it will be cut off with the bleed. All front elements like graphics, text or other important information should be placed inside the final format with a safty margin of about 0.08''.
Resolution for bulk poster printing:
We print with a 70line screen which gives a resolution of 354 dpi. In order to obtain optimum printing results, your printing data must have a resolution of at least 300 dpi (dots per inch). If your file is saved with a lower resolution a quality loss may result.
For posters or similiar products which are viewed from a greater distance, a resolution down till 150 dpi may be acceptable, even if not optimal. In no circumstances the resolution should be below this mark.
Color settings for bulk poster printing
CMYK is the standard color mode we use for offset poster printing. You should therefore create your files in the CMYK color mode. If, however, we receive files with other color settings, our system will automatically convert them to CMYK. This may result in slight color deviations which will not be accepted as complaints as we do not know the original color you wished to have. If, from the start, your data are created in CMYK and you access our ICC color profile (available under downloads) the probable result will be simulated on your monitor.
Fonts used for bulk poster printing
For bulk poster printing you should always use Postscript fonts. TrueType fonts can cause problems when the printing plates are exposed. If TrueType fonts are required for any reason, they have to be converted to a vector, outline or curve (depending on the program you use). This action converts the font into a vector so that the original font itself is no longer required.
File formats for your bulk posters
Generally we prefer multipage PDF files for your printed products. The first page of your PDF will be used for the front, the second page for the back. Alternatively you can 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 file. Please never save a PDF directly from Photoshop.
Inking limit to ensure a good printing result for your bulk posters
The color channels cyan, magenta, yellow and black are displayed in percent in your layout program. Assuming that the file is created and saved with a CMYK color space, the summation of the colors cyan, magenta, yellow and black must not exceed 300%.
If it does, it causes an above-average ink application and can therefore cause a faulty result. Such a high ink application does not dry properly and your prints might stick together and tear on separation.
For a black or grey color please use K (K=key=black) only. If your fonts use three or more colors, shadows can appear on the printed product. To obtain deep black, 40% cyan and 100% black are adequate (40/0/0/100). Alternatively you can use CMYK 30/30/30/100.
