When uploading an image or photo, remember that the higher the quality of the image, the better it is going to look when printed. We recommend a resolution of at least 300 dpi (dots per inch). Images that are less than 300 dpi may look blurry or pixelated. We review all files before production and will let you know via a low-resolution proof email if there are any issues.
If your image was sourced from a website on the Internet, it will likely not be of a high-enough resolution, since the Internet displays images at 72 dpi. When searching for an image and trying to decide if it is high-resolution, zoom in on the file until it fills your screen. This will give you an idea of what the image will look like when enlarged for printing. Also, filter your search results by “Large images” to ensure that your file size will be sufficient for large-format printing.
