You need to specify either pixel dimensions or a combination of PPI AND output size.

 

Here's what I mean:

PPI= Pixels per inch.

DPI= Dots per inch

 

PPI refers to file information.

DPI refers to the number of physical dots put down by the printer.

 

Sometimes, people erroneously call PPI DPI.

 

Here's a hypothetical:

I could give you a file with pixel dimensions of 3600 by 5400.

 

If I gave you a 300PPI file, that would be a 12" by 18" print.

However, I could change the PPI to 360 and suddenly you would have a 10" by 15" print. Your image file hasn't actually changed size: just the output relative to number of pixels.

 

Alternately, I could give you a 300ppi file, but if the file is only 360x540 pixels, you're only getting a 1.8" print.

 

Typically, most printers do best with 240-360ppi. 300ppi is a good standard number that's widely accepted. However, you should specify in any contract, if this is an issue, terms such as that you will be receiving "images suitable to make an 8x10" print at 300ppi." Just the PPI by itself is useless: you could receive 300ppi images unsuitable for anything but a wallet-sized print.

    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations.
