Dimension Problem

Dec 30, 2012 12:02 PM

I am designing a 3.5" x 2" business card, and having a problem with printing clarity.


To design the card I used a 3.5" x 2" artboard. I exported the image as a png, ticked the use artboard box, and selected 72ppi.


When I print the png at 3.5"x2" it is blurry, and when I upload it to a business card printing layout the dimensions do not fit.


Any ideas?

    Why 72ppi? Why png?

    You may Save/Print as PDF and keep things nice.


    Whenever you use a raster format such as PNG, you should export with a sufficient resolution setting, or set the Image Size to the size in pixel x pixel that will give you the right resolution.
