High resolution photos and graphics are required for sharp reproduction in our printing otherwise the quality is very poor. Pictures should be taken at the highest resolution setting on the camera.

These are samples of photos when printed:

High Resolution Photo - natural print size

A high resolution picture is determined by its number of pixels; more pixels improves the sharpness of the picture.

Low Resolution Photo - natural print size

  • Most pictures found on the web are low resolution and not suitable for print quality
  • A picture that is low-resolution can be turned into a high resolution by making it much, much smaller.

Low Resolution Photo - stretched to fit

Alternatively, we can stretch the photo so it fits, but this makes the photo lose some quality.

Large Format Graphics

When printing banners, signage and large posters, we need even bigger graphics. We can enlarge smaller images, but the finished print won't look good, especially viewed close up.
