Resolution should be at least 300 dpi for pictures. Graphics should be vector. Pictures and graphics pulled from the internet are often low resolution, typically 72 dpi or 96 dpi. Avoid these graphics, as they will appear pixilated and blocky when printed. Also note that you should save all photos and graphics in CMYK mode, not RGB mode. Images saved in RGB mode may not print color properly. If you are unable to save your image in CYMK mode, please let us know.

In short, printers and monitors produce colors in different ways.
Monitors use the RGB (red, green, blue) color spectrum, which usually supports a wider gamut of colors.
Printers use the CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black) color spectrum, which can reproduce most—but
not all—of the colors in the RGB color spectrum. CMYK generally matches 85–90% of the colors in the
RGB spectrum. When a color is selected from the RGB spectrum that is out of the range of the CMYK
spectrum, the application chooses what it thinks is the closest color that will match.
