To those who have created door hangers, did your images have to be 300 dpi? A lot of the images out there aren't at that extremely high level of quality including the images I have seen in some of the member's door hanger examples.

You will not be able to steal images off the web to use for a high quality doorhanger. They have to be high resolution photos - most websites are not.

Most designers will either have stock photos or you can take high res pics on your own.

Hi coif_kid,

The free ones on our site are 150dpi (http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/cgi-bin/ikonboard.cgi?act=ST;f=1;t=942). Send me a PM if you could use any of them in 300dpi and I will see if I can get them in that setting.

Does it really matter as much as they say if your images are 150 dpi or so?

Depwnds on the type of image-- photographs for certain need to be high res.

ALthough I don't understandeverything that goes on withthe process -- thats why I hire professionals, I know there is also something about doing the offset printing that makes lowewr resolution look even worse when printed.

I am also investigating door hangers. It appears that most places want 300 dpi.

I agree with him, pro is the way to go! I just had the same designer he hires to design and print my cards. He has also done quite a bit of work for me in the past too..
