Hello! Chris here. I’m one of instantprint’s Personal Artworkers, and I’d like to share a quick size guide with you to help you make your design print ready.

The table below is basked on printing a portrait document at 300dpi (dots per inch) – meaning it’ll print in really high quality. You can use these measurements to set up your document in your preferred design software program based on what size product you want.
