DPI (Dots Per Inch)

Choosing The Right DPI

When preparing your artwork for Giclée printing, it’s essential to consider the intended size of the final print and the resolution of your digital file. As a general guideline, aim for a DPI of at least 300 for optimal print quality. However, larger prints may benefit from even higher DPI settings to ensure maximum detail and clarity.

Why Does DPI Matter?

Detail And Sharpness

A higher DPI allows for sharper lines, finer details, and smoother gradients, resulting in prints that capture all the intricate details and nuances of your image.

Colour Accuracy

DPI plays a crucial role in preserving color accuracy. A higher DPI ensures that the printer can reproduce a wider range of colors and maintain fidelity to the original artwork’s color palette.

Texture and Depth

For artists who work with textured surfaces or layered compositions, a higher DPI helps retain the depth and texture of the original artwork. This ensures that the printed piece maintains its tactile qualities and visual appeal.

Professional Presentation

High DPI prints convey a sense of professionalism and attention to detail, which can enhance the perceived value of your artwork, helping to ensure the work is presented at its value.
