You've posted a 146 by 273 px PNG. What dimensions should it be?

Is that the size of the artboard(s)?

What result are you getting instead?

What export method are you using?

Not the size of the artboard, the size of the item we're designing. We did achieve an export but wrong sizes, approx 40% bigger than needed.

So you are exporting object(s), rather than artboards? Using Asset Export?

Can you show screenshots of the object in Illustrator selected, and the result you get when you export?

These are the size you describe. The PNGs are a fraction out but that is because they must round to the nearest pixel rather than mm. Which is 40% bigger?

Which file format do you want to use? 
are you going to send it to a print house? If yes, send it as an Illustrator file (ai)
