In order to print your artworks and photos on fabric, it’s necessary to check if the picture has a good quality – resolution. Image resolution is pixel count expressed as a vertical number of pixels times a horizontal number of pixels. For example, 1920×1080 is a common resolution for computer screens.
When printing an image, the above-mentioned resolution is not enough to know if the picture will look crisp or blurry because it depends on the size of the print. When it comes to printers, they use a different expression of resolution – DPI or dots (pixels) per inch. We print in 150 dpi resolution which means that with one inch (2,54 cm) of fabric printer reproduces 150 dots, which are on display seen as pixels.
For example, if you have an image with a resolution of 2000px x 2000px at 150 dpi, the maximum size of print on fabric could be 34cm x 34cm. If you want to print a photograph for example on 1m x 1m at 150 dpi, the resolution of your photo should be 5906px x 5906px which is approximately 35 megapixels. If you want to upload an illustration or picture and repeat it to get a pattern, you can upload it in 150dpi and then reduce its size in the customizer until you are satisfied with the result.
