Image Resolution

Your images (any graphics that are not vector) need to be 125 DPI at full size.

Determine Image Quality from Source

  • Good Quality: 
  • High resolution/high quality stock photography 
  • High resolution/high quality scanner
  • Low Quality:
  • Screen capture of video frame
  • Low resolution/low quality stock photography 
  • Image lifted off a web-page

Why 125 DPI?

Since your banner will be a large format print, you don't need to prepare your file in 300 DPI which is usallly used for smaller format print.
