Image Resolution

Using high-resolution images for printing

Image Resolution refers to the DPI (Dots per Inch) of images used in your designs. It is especially important to ensure you use images with a high resolution when designing items to be printed, so that they will look high quality when finished, and not pixelated.

The DPI is based on the dimensions of your image, versus the size you have placed it on your design.

For example, if you place a 1000x1000px image on a design and scale it to be 10 inches wide, then it will have an effective resolution of 100 DPI (1000px divided by 10"). If you scale the same image to be 5" wide, it will be 200 DPI.

For printed items such as business cards, mailers and posters, we recommend a minimum of 150 DPI. If you are using an image that is too low resolution, you could try reducing the display size of the image down to increase the effective resolution, or replace with a higher quality image.

When working through the 'Order' steps on Easil, you will be guided to check each image is high enough resolution, but if you have any queries, you can reach out to our Customer Success team via the chat function.
