What product formats and dimensions do you support?

In our network, we support the most common product categories and formats. For a full overview please refer to the Product Catalogue in the API Portal.

 

Product dimensions

Dimensions for each product UID are displayed in the detail page for each product UID. 

Note: The dimensions in the product catalogue do not include bleed. Read more about our design requirements here.

Important: When you submit a PDF to Gelato, the file must be the exact dimension of the final document plus bleed. E.g. If you want to print a poster whose dimensions are 300x400mm when printed, the PDF must be 308x408mm, i.e. the original dimensions plus 4mm bleed on all sides (see example below).

Product formats

There are 3 main product categories:

  • Flat formats: For flat formats, you should always submit the file with bleed. However, after being trimmed, the final dimensions will be smaller. 
  • Folded formats: Either single-folded, roll-folded or accordion-folded. For folded formats, you should submit the file unfolded and including bleed. However, after being trimmed and folded, the final dimensions will be smaller.   
  • Multi-page formats: Anything between 8 and 250 pages with different binding options. For multipage formats, you can use the same dimensions as for single-folded brochures. Additional information around this type of products can be found here.
