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)

The use of posters is an effective way to get the message across to your audience. All sizes may work for these announcements depending on the space in which they are placed. A matte coated paper will be a great choice to enhance the readability of small text.

Promotion is not only about the offer or discount, but also about capturing the attention of your target audience with an attractive design and a direct message that sparks the desire to enter your store and take advantage of the special offers. Using a double-sided poster is a great option to double display your message. If it's a colorful design, use a glossy coated paper.

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.

The website is easy to follow and anytime I have needed customer service, they have been very helpful.

Once again, Chilli Printing has come through with amazing results! The products arrived 3 days before they were supposed to. Great job!

The only small complaint I have is that I didn't know that the posters would not come flat. Just had to flatten them here for a few days. However the order came a few days earlier than expected so there was no actual problem. Also I do wish you had heavier paper choices for posters AND in the larger sizes where you do (140#) there were no samples in the kit you sent.

Excellent quality products Wish the shipping was quicker but the prices make it possible for my small business to operate!

We were completely satisfied with the posters we had printed! The quality and cost were unparalleled! We definitely plan to use them again!

Have repeatedly ordered from chilliprinting. Have never had any issues.

The ordering process is simple and pricing is very affordable! I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of printing! I would definitely recommend and will continue to use ChiliPrinting for my printing needs!

Chill printing has become my go to printer due to their excellent customer service, quality, and speed. If they can keep doing what they are doing they would prove to be one of the best online printers around.

Quick, quality products every time.

I am very satisfied with how crisp the details came out on this printing. I highly recommend using this printing service.

Good price, fast shipping and quality pricing what else can you ask for?

I am a loyal customer of ChilliPrinting. Always great prices, quality, and service.

ChilliPrinting has great prices & excellent quality for online poster printing. Website is easy to use. Turnaround time is quick. They are our go to printer for our poster needs.

Your customer support went above and beyond in helping me get this together without making me feel dumb for not knowing exactly how to give you the size and dimensions of the photos being used. The art department did an amazing job of cropping the photos to the right specs without losing the feel of the images. 100% satisfied.

We love chilli printing. The product turns out great and the shipping is super fast!! Highly recommend

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.

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

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???

My company has been using ChilliPrinting for many years now and they keep getting better. Great work!

The order was delivered fast, and nicely packaged. The posters look great and I'll be ordering again.

Consistent top-quality prints. My number one company for prints.

Order arrived earlier than expected. Customer was very happy about that

Over the years I've ordered thousands of posters from ChilliPrinting and I have been happy with every order. The price and quality are excellent and the customer service has always been top-notch. I have had some issues with packages being damaged in transit, but I consider that the fault of FedEx rather than ChilliPrinting, and CP has been good about getting me replacements when needed.

I have just recently discovered Chiliprinting and have already ordered several bulk printings. The customer service is awesome! Very thorough and helpful. I have not been disappointed with any of my orders. I only wish I had found out about them earlier. I would recommend them anytime. Thank you for your services!

The best printing company for posters.
