The number you see changing as you resize your image is the DPI—or Dots Per Inch—of your print. This refers to the density of dots of ink the printer produces when printing an image. Essentially, a higher DPI allows the printer to create prints with more fine details visible. A low DPI image will look blurry or pixelated.
However, DPI is not the be-all-end-all of print quality. To ensure a high-quality result, the source image used must also be high quality itself. If it is a photograph, it should be sharp and focused well. There is no way to judge the quality programmatically, so you will have to do that by looking at the image yourself.
If you would like us to use our expertize to determine the quality of your image, or if you have any other questions regarding print quality, feel free to contact us.
We do most of our printing on a 60-inch wide-format printer, allowing us to print at a massive five feet in width alone. For this reason, one dimension is always limited to the width of the printer, minus the size of the wrap and additional white space used when wrapping the canvas, leaving us with a generous total of 54 inches.
As the canvas material is on a roll and fed through the printer, the length of canvas prints can be even longer than five feet—virtually unlimited, though special prodecures need to be followed when printing at exceedingly large sizes (above 100 inches). If you have a canvas you would like printed with a length of greater than 100 inches, please contact us and we will do our best to assist you.
