Small dots of colour are used to make most pictures on screen. There are a certain number of dots or pixels used to create each picture. So it will come as no surprise when HD Pixel Print lets you know that the higher the number of pixels used the better quality of printing received. It will also allow you to have the option of printing your picture on a larger scale without any risk of distortion. That is because if a picture has a lower number of pixels but is enlarged too far it will start to appear blurry and distort.
But my Picture/Logo looks fine on screen?
At HD Pixel Print we have some customers who believe their logo looks fine on their computer screen. As a screen displays at 72dpi (dots per inch) you would need to consider commercial press prints to 300dpi (also a different type of dpi compared to consumer printers!). If you are wondering how a press would print your logo or picture, zoom in on your screen to 400%, or display the image four times as large as you would like it to appear when it has been printed. This should help you to see how your chosen image will appear.
Please note: If a picture can be seen clearly at 4 times the intended printing size it should print without any visual problems occurring.
