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)

Click question below to read the answer
What is the best format file for printing large posters?
We accept jpeg, tiff or pdf files, however for large format printing, we recommend using a jpeg file.

We offer many options for cheap poster printing, to truly customize your order. The most popular option are our standard papers, which are 100 lb. text stock, and come in glossy print or matte print. Additionally, we offer an extra light option which comes in 80 lb. text stock.

awesome price. quick turnaround. and the finished product was perfect. would recommend and use again. Thanks ***

I have used your company to print posters for the past few years and have been very pleased with the service, turn around and quality. The posters we print are for the Booster Club, so I work with a different group of people every year. Knowing I have a reliable company that can print the posters and get them shipped to me in a few days is a relief in such a stressful situation.

Extremely good service, fast delivery, always highest quality prints. Don't waste your time with anyone else.

I continue to be very happy with Chilliprinting products & always feel that I can depend on and trust the company as well

Completely satisfied with my order thank you chilliprinting you never disappoint

I ordered sets of posters and bookmarks, and was thoroughly impressed with the quality (paper, colours, cut) and speed of delivery. Thank you

We appreciate how well the posters turn out.

Great service -- on time, great quality at a price we loved!

I think Chilliprinting offers excellent services, efficient order procedure, customer support and quality of work. I would certainly recommend to others!

Amazing Service!! Always on time and the prints are fantastic.

Order process was simple and production timeline was exactly what I was expecting. Great value!

We love you guys. From the time of order to the time of receipt is phenomenal!! The product is flawless and is always packaged so carefully. You don't find good business practice in this day in age and Chilli printing is an exception!!

Excellent print quality, quick turnaround, and great pricing makes for an awesome printing company!

We love Chilli Printing!! The quality of the product and the timeliness of receipt is amazing!!

Super fast & great quality print!!

Excellent quality for the price

Excellent all around. Quick turnaround and perfect product. Cant be any happier.

Chilli Printing have been great with all of my orders! The turnaround time is amazing when you need something last-minute, and they are easy to get in touch with when you have questions.

Again....I would love to give you some negative point to work on, but this order was just as fast, easy, and high-quality as those of the past. You guys are great!!

I've ordered several full size (24x36) double sided posters and they've all been beautiful. Customer service has been fast and friendly - quickly replacing some damaged items and answering all of my questions. I will continue to use these guys for all of my printing needs.

Easy online ordering, high quality printing, and quick turnaround makes for a great printing resource.

Good price, good quality. Success guaranteed by plain economics.

Excellent quality. Fast turnaround.

Great customer service, high quality prints

Order arrived earlier than expected, was well packed, and the posters were beautiful!

There is absolutely nothing you can do to improve! Its already perfect! Thank you all for your wonderful service!

18x24 posters came out great. Shipping has been much better. In the past i have received some orders with bent corners but I feel it has been better and the shipping department seems to be taking better care of the packing.

I often keep my expectations low because I'm often disappointed when orders come in from a new company that I haven't ordered from before. But this order came in perfectly. The print quality is excellent!

As always, outstanding quality - fast turn around. Bravo!

Overall a very simple ordering process. I like the multiple production & shipping options. Quality has been excellenT

We love the service we get from Chilli Printing. The product is amazing and the time it takes to receive the product is very reasonable its within a week and that helps us out a lot. Especially when we have a lot of deadlines. Thank you Chilli Printing!!

I would like to provide an area for you to improve, but this order was very typical of the orders that I have made in the past. Everything was easy, efficient, high quality and delivered ahead of schedule. I will continue to send all of my large poster jobs to you without hesitation.

Thank you so much Chilli printing!! We love working with you as always!!

You provided a great service, fast and we appreciate the quality!

We love Chilli Printing. Thank you so much for all your work.

Once you have done the first order, it's super easy. We always receive our shipments in a timely manner.

Chilli Printing was not only provided fast service but also very affordable! We would be thrilled to work with them again for all our poster needs!

Easy to use website, good prices, quick turnaround times, and great printing quality add up to a 5-star rating.

Order procedure was clear and smooth, production time and shipping were timely, and the finished products look great. There were a few that had bent corners but thanks to the overrun that was supplied, I had enough posters with perfect corners.

The job came out excellent again!

Once again, the quality was superb! Great Job!!

I was very satisfied with the support and guidance that I received from ***, Director of Marketing along with the rest of the customer support team. They provided very good feedback on the initial review of the product to the final production. The end product looks great!. I would strongly recommend ChilliPrinting to others. ***

Super results once again, with amazingly-fast delivery!

Printing was done well and quickly. Item was shipped promptly and arrived with no issues. Prints were packed as rolls (not flat). This probably cuts shipping cost (which is good), but once prints are opened it is difficult to re-pack them if they need to be stored.

Quality & delivery expectations are always met!

We love chilli printing. We are in need of some spiral bound planners and you guys dont have an option for those, we would like them.

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.
