I am about to send some sketches which I have scanned and and tidied up in Photoshop. My scans were 300dpi at the scanner. I've checked by docs and they all say 300 pixels per inch.

Here's an example:

photoshop settings showing resolution at 300 pixels per inch

I tend to work for web, so don't do print stuff.

Am I on the right track? Are the files big enough for print? Please excuse my novice-ness.

DPI and PPI are the same thing.

Technically pixels per inch refer to the pixels on a screen and dots per inch refer to the dots of ink on printed paper, but they are the same thing.
