Has your printer ever told you that your file is too low of a resolution to print? We can help! You need a designer that knows the difference of designing for print and web. We do! Print and web design are two completely different mediums. If you are spending the money to have something printed with your name on it wouldn’t you want it to print as clean and clear as it should? Insuring a high quality print job is as simple as making sure all the photos and images in your digital files are all high resolution.
D.P.I. (Dots Per Inch) is the measurement used within the printing and graphic design industry to determine how sharp an image appears. Web images and online pictures are typically created at 72 dpi, this low resolution is ideal for the web because the images look great on a computer monitor and the file size is much smaller. When designing any graphic material for printing purposes, your images should be 300 dpi or better. Essentially what this does is displays more information (or dots) for every square inch of the image you are viewing. The more dots used, the sharper the image. Color printing will look blurry if a 72 dpi artwork is used, so make sure you have your images at 300 dpi before you submit your files to a printer.
