Yes, we can print full color on any of our sticker types. You will want to make sure the resolution is high enough for the size you are selecting to print. There are a few general guidelines for understanding the quality of your photo. The main thing is the resolution of your file. Ideally, you do not want to print anything less than 300ppi (pixels per inch), but that’s not always possible. Staying above 150ppi is the next step, but this is all dependent upon the dimensions of your actual file, size you are looking to print, and type of pixelation/blur compromise you’re willing to allow based on those parameters.

Then if you are printing very large billboard types of prints you can dip way down on the resolution and even setting up your file dimensions to a smaller scale (with or without higher resolutions). Mainly because the print will be viewed from a far distance and if it is blurry up close it is not noticeable from afar. This is covered more in our article regarding wall mural printing.

Also, if you are grabbing images from websites, facebook, etc. You can expect them to be 72dpi for the most part. Unless they are providing you a high-resolution download link.
