In the world of digital printing, resolution is often expressed as dots per inch (dpi) or pixael per inch (ppi) Pixalili produces a good quality print at our minimum resolution of 150 dpi. When creating your design, you will need a minimum of 150 pixels for every inch of your final print dimension. For example, if you'd like an image to print at 4" by 4", you'll want to prepare your file so that measures at least 600 by 600 pixels, since 4 inches x 150 pixels = 600. You can use this formula to size any image-- just multiply the print width and height in inches by 150 pixels. Here are some basic sizes:
When you upload your image we show you a preview at actual size
Enlarging an image causes loss of detail, resulting in a blurry or pixelated print - not good to print
The more pixels your image has, the more detailed it is in terms of data. You can't take a limited amount of information (a small number of pixels) and turn it into more information. Pixels have no physical size, but they do have a limitation: they are the smallest element of individual information about your digital image.
If you try to “stretch” the information available in a small file to fit a large printed dimension it will result in a blurry, pixelated print.
Pixalili is a textile printing and design studio on Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way in Co. Donegal, we are a family run business and with the help of our rather large digital printer whose name is 'Florence' we turn gorgeous fabric into wonderful prints.
We are constantly inspired by the beautiful area, the nature, the sea and the people in Donegal and we are incredibly lucky to be able to work in such a special place.
