Technical Information: 

Most pictures on a screen are made up from small dots of colour. Each picture is made up by a certain number of dots or pixels. The higher the number of pixels the higher quality the picture and the larger it can be displayed or printed without distorting. If a picture is enlarged beyond a certain point it will begin to distort and appear blurry. 

A screen displays at 72dpi (dots per inch) where commercial presses print to 300dpi (This is a different type of dpi compared to consumer printers). Most images found on the internet are only 72dpi and are unsuitable for our professional printing process. To see how a press would print your logo or picture, zoom in to 400%, or display the image four times as large as you would like it to appear when printed. This will give you an idea of how it would look when professionally printed.
