This question already has an answer here:
I was asked to do a large banner with the size of 46in x 81in and the only other information I was given with this project is that it would be printed at 300dpi.
What size and resolution document should I produce and how did you calculate this?
What type of information should I request the next time I am designing for a large print?
This image will include a collection of multiple smaller raster images, whats a good way to make them look good blown up?
Edit: I apologize for not being very clear. I guess my question is if I am producing an image that needs to fit on a 46x81 space should I be designing an image that is 46x81 or a smaller image that matches same aspect ratio?
