Printing Tip: Reduce Illustrator file DPI


When printing Illustrator files in the labs, make things easy on yourself by adjusting the DPI settings on your file so that it will print easily. DPI (dots per inch) are converted during the printing process to match that allowable printer DPI. As such it is recommended that you set your file at 300 DPI when printing in the labs. This will help to reduce your file size while utilizing the highest level of printing detail.
