FAQ

Q. Is a digital image’s resolution the same as dots-per-inch (DPI)?

A. Yes. The resolution of digital images is generally expressed in dots per inch (DPI), or pixels per inch (PPI).
It is also worth noting that the over all quality of a digital image is generally related to the size of the image’s file. The larger an image file size generally means a better source image in terms of it’s detail, clarity or resolution, contrast, color gamut and the physical or printed size of the image.

The downside of large, detailed image files is they are often difficult to transfer especially as email attachments.

Another way to get your image files to us is to use an application called “Dropbox”. You can transfer files up to 5GB. Call us for getting and we’ll make arrangements for our file transfers. Call us at (800) 931-0535
