    What is DPI?

    DPI is short for "Dots Per Inch" and means the number of printed dots per square inch of a print. The more dots per inch, the smoother and generally higher quality the print will be. The dimension in pixels of your image on any given length divided by the DPI will give you the size of your print for that dimension. For example, if you had a 3000 x 2000 image, printing at 100 DPI would yield a 30" x 20" print. Printing that same image at 1000 DPI would yield a 3" x 2" print.

    The minimum DPI for any print you sell on DPC Prints is 150, and this will produce a great print. Again, the higher the DPI, the better. 300 DPI will produce the best photographic print.
