    Poster and Print Sizes Explained

    Standard Print Sizes 

    We offer an array of standard sizes. The print sizes available for a design depends on the image(s) uploaded and preferences set in the design process.

    Standard sizes come ready-made to fit common frame sizes. A list of standard frame sizes can be found below.

    While these sizes are ideal for fitting standard frames, they may not fit your image. To fit your art to a standard size, some cropping may occur. Any adjustments made as a result of cropping will be clearly visible in the "product" and "design" views when designing your poster and/or selecting your size.

    Be sure to examine the product's real view to verify that product looks exactly as you intend it to be produced.

    Custom Print Sizes

    Custom sizes fit exactly to the aspect ratio of your artwork to perfectly match your image.

    To enter a custom size, use the 'Size' dropdown menu on the product page to select ‘Choose your own size’. A pop up box will appear like the one below:


    The link feature can be switched on or off, depending on your preference. Keeping the link feature ticked ensures that the custom measurements you enter will have the correct aspect ratio, in relation to your images dimensions.

    Unticking the link feature allows you to set both measurements freely, without the aspect ratio balance. This is useful if you require specific border sizes for your custom print.

    Choosing the right image/resolution

    The images you upload will be utilized at no less than 150ppi (pixels per inch). This means every 150 pixels in your image will become 1 inch when printed.

    Use the highest resolution images available for your Zazzle prints! If you upload a larger image and then choose to print it at a smaller size, it will be generated at the optimal resolution to ensure a quality print. We recommend that you add images that are larger than the minimum 150 ppi. For logos, digital art, or anything with sharp edges and contrasts, 200 ppi or greater is recommended.

    Print & Poster designs that use less than 150ppi may not be posted for sale in the Zazzle marketplace.

    * To select a standard frame, be sure to select one of the standard sizes when creating or customising your poster. Cropping may be required to ensure your poster will fit in a standard frame. If you do not want your poster cropped please select a custom framing option and the size of your image will not be altered.
