  How do I make sure elements on screen don’t appear pixelated when printed?

Screen resolution is lower than print resolution so elements such as logos that look fine on a computer screen can appear fuzzy when printed. To avoid this, make sure all images are 300dpi.

  How do I tell if the resolution is good enough?

Ideally artwork should be at 300dpi at the size you want to print the job. However we use clever technology that means we can cope even if this falls to 200dpi in most cases. Anything lower than that could mean poor image quality though and a pixelated or 'jagged' appearance in images or text.

  What is resolution?

Resolution is a measure of the number of pixels, or dots at a given size that will determine the quality of the final printed piece, for instance 300dpi (dots per inch).
