B3 Size In Pixels

It is an evergreen question regarding paper sizes, including the B3 size, that how much they measure in pixels. This is most frequently asked when someone wants to print out a design into a sheet of B3 paper, and they want to know how many pixels wide and long the design should be so that it would have a perfect resolution after printing.

Unfortunately there is no exact correspondence between the B3 paper size and pixels. This depends of the resolution of your device, such as screen or printer).

Native screen resolution in DPI varies a lot, but it's generally between 100 and 120 DPI. 72 DPI for monitors is just a myth. Your printer at home or at the office typically uses 300 DPI. When using a professional printing service, the resolution can vary between 250 DPI and 600 DPI, but you can find professional printers that use a much higher resolution, like 1200 DPI.

We give you some pixel data for a sheet of B3 paper based on different resolutions, but it is of upmost importance to know your exact printing resolution before designing!
