jetster image trouble

How do you acheive a sharp high quality print on a jetster? The outcome of some of our prints has been poor pixlelated and fuzzy. Is a tiff file the best to use? and is it possible to print in eps format?

I don't know exactly but are you trying to print the image way larger than the original?

Jetster is more than capable of delivering very fine looking hi res prints. You might want to have a look at the original artwork you are working with...file format, file resolution, size, etc...probably best to throw this question of the folks at Spandex.

Thanks for the advice chaps. Probably time to call in the man from spandex.
I ve been working with files customers have sent me, usually in tiff format. Thing is i'm only allowed to go up to a certain file size when working on the images (dont ask why, my boss doesnt like big files).

So I take it you have to have the image set up to actual print size in photoshop?

Your boss doesn't like big files? Digital print is all about big file sizes. If you don't have a good quality image to start with you won't get a good print.

I read somewhere that the rule of thumb is 75dpi at the actual print size.
So if you have an original say 6 inches wide and you intend to print it out at 24 inches, the original file will need to be at 300dpi.
300 divided by 4 = 75
Or put another way; multiplied the 6 by 300dpi = 1800dots. Spread the 1800 over 24 inches and you end up with 75dpi.

Stop sniggering at the back there :evil: just because you understand all of this better than I do :-? doesn’t mean it won’t shed a little light for some. :wink:

Jetster Print

Hi Jag
Your Jetster printing - you'll always have problems if your working from scans. You need good artwork. You can also try a .pdf format, but good initial artwork is paramount.
Are you printing or farmin g out?

Dave is right, the quality of the artwork is critical, for example a high-res photo image around 1500x600mm can be 6-700mb when exported as an EPS, and when its ripped can create a file well over a Gb in size.
