Aspect Ratio & Sizing

Aspect Ratio: This measures the relationship between the width and height of a print. A 12x18 can easily become a 30x45 but it could never be a 20x28. Use the aspect ratio calculator below or the chart to determine the dimensions of your image size. The finished paper size could include a border, if you chose, which could also affect the aspect ratio. We are happy to discuss this more when you place your order.   

*Standard frame sizes

Pixel & Resolution: We prefer files that are 300 pixels per inch (PPI). 300 PPI is optimum for print, 200 PPI is good. If your file is lower resolution (less PPI) you may want to consider a textured paper i.e. canvas, watercolor/cold press to hide any distortion. Use the calculator to input your pixel dimensions to see possible image sizes. The framing chart shows readily available framing options. Choosing a standard sized frame can increase your print sales, but we are happy to print at any size.
