I have a series of Artwork, digitally stored, where I am looking to print them off as Giclee Prints. Never created Giclee Prints before, I have spent time looking at what constitutes a Giclee Print. Paper Choice, Inks and of course the DPI; among other aspects.
Regarding the DPI, all my resources state that the DPI should be between 300-360 DPI. This level would constitute a high standard.
That being said, I have come across many Printers who claim to print over 1,200 DPI. Naturally, I would assume this would result in better quality. Despite this, I am wondering whether anything over 300 DPI would be overkill. After all, Giclee Prints are regarded as the best variants of all Printing methods, typically being associated with a DPI range of 300-360 DPI.
As such, is a DPI over 360 DPI, simply overkill or are there instances where such an excessive DPI would be useful?
