What are DPI and what is the standard for printing floor coverings?
DPI or Dots Per Inch is used to describe the resolution number of dots per inch in a digital print. DPI measures the number of individual dots that can be placed within the span of 1 inch (2.54 cm). Digital printing for textile floorcoverings uses 100 DPI. For every inch or 2,54 cm printed there are 100 ink points. When delivering a full-size image, 100 DPI is sufficient for printing on mats.
Consider that a certain blend effect takes place when printing on floor coverings. Not all qualities are suited for photorealistic prints. Are you unable to deliver a full-size image? We recommend you stick to vectorized images. A vector graphic means that no matter how large or small or how close you zoom in on the image, the lines, curves, and points remain smooth. Images can be adjusted and enlarged without compromising the quality.
