When should I use A4 paper for printing?
A good example of this would be our standard posters which are available in two different kinds of paper material such as standard and colour blocking. As they have features that allow them to last for a long time, our A4 sheets make for the best promotional material.
We also have sticky posters which are available in A4 paper size. These are easy to apply and comes with a back with a studded and sticky surface, making it easy for you to display your poster anywhere. In fact, you can easily remove them and re-attach them somewhere else instead should the need arise. A4 paper size is also a reliable material to use if you are planning to send invitation letters as you can put an ample amount of visuals and text on it.
Printing resolution for A4
To output an image with the best quality, it’s important to set up the right resolution. A resolution of 210 x 297 mm at 300 ppi (pixels per inch) is perfect for A4. Don’t forget to add bleed! Bleed is essential if you want your printed products to show up as you expected. Add a bleed of 3 mm on all sides of your design. InDesign has an easy tool with which you can add bleed easily. Photoshop requires you to add it manually. Not sure if you added bleed the right way? Check our free templates on the product page of the product you’re ordering.
