A high-resolution design file for printing wall decoration stickers
With fixed dimensions, you can now think of the material that will go on your wall.
As I mentioned earlier, we can print any image that you give us. Just make sure that the artboard size and wall dimensions of your design match with each other.
Before mailing to an online wallpaper manufacturer during a job, many designers have a question about the resolution (DPI) that needs to be set for the wallpaper printing file. You can choose either of the two methods listed below:
Set your artboard to the actual size of the wall. For example, if your wall is 10 feet wide and 8 feet high, your artboard (or page) size has to have a width of 120 inches (10 feet) and a height of 96 inches (8 feet).
When you set the page size at actual dimensions, keep the resolutions at a manageable 72 DPI or 150 DPI. This will keep the file size low and won’t overwhelm your system memory.
Set your page size or artboard to a smaller proportion of the original dimensions. For example, if the wall measures ten feet (12 inches) X eight feet (96 inches), set the page size to 12 inches X 9.6 inches. So what we have done here is set the page size to one-tenth of the original dimensions.
With reduced page dimensions, you can now increase the resolution to 300 or 600 dpi without worrying about the overall file size.
Both the above techniques will ensure two things:
The file size remains manageable and does not run into gigabytes of data.
The print resolution is not compromised, and you are assured of photo quality output without any image pixelation.
