How much DPI do I need for printing projects?
The minimum DPI (dots per inch) that you will need for printed pieces will depend on the size of the piece and the level of detail and quality that you want to achieve. As a general rule, the larger the printed piece, the higher the DPI that you will need to achieve a high-quality result.
For standard-sized printed pieces, such as brochures or business cards, a DPI of 300 is generally considered to be the minimum for good quality printing. For larger pieces, such as posters or banners, a DPI of at least 150 is usually recommended.
However, the DPI that you will need may also depend on the type of printing that you are using. For example, offset printing typically requires a higher DPI than digital printing, as the printing plates used in offset printing are able to produce finer details and higher resolutions.
To ensure the best quality printing, it is generally recommended to use a DPI of at least 300 for all printed pieces, regardless of size or printing method. This will help to ensure that your printed pieces are crisp, clear, and accurate, and will give you the best possible results.
