I have to design a flyer for half of an 81/2 x 11 page. It mostly has images but some text. And I'm designing it in GIMP. Is there an industry standard dpi for simple prints? It's not magazine quality, but I'm looking for a decent dpi.

    300 dpi, 600 if it has fine detail May 14, 2013 at 16:32

300ppi is industry standard for normal print items. Difference between PPI and DPI

How many actual pixels you have in your artwork is what is important, so you need (300 x width in inches) by (300 x height in inches)
