    Talking prints on canvas and DPI question

    hi guys, ive been asked on a number of occasions if i could possibly have some of my art printed onto canvas. Now being as most of my art os done digitally, i was wondering what kind of DPI i should be looking at if i was to do a canvas print of roughly 12"x12" or higher. If i do it this way, i'd rather not loose too much clarity on the end result. Any ideas?

    I could be wrong but 12"x12" is usually 300dpi. At least 150dpi.

    Yep, 300dpi ideally although 150dpi or 200dpi would probably be OK for something painterly. Which means your art needs to be at least 3600x3600 pixels (for 300) and 1800x1800 pixels (for 150). If it's not that big you've no option but to print smaller.

    Thanks guys. A lot of my work is already set to 300dpi, with the exception of one or two peices. So i should have no problem. Thanks again.
