7. What if the printarea suggested by my provider is in different measurement unit (in/mm/cm), not pixel?
teeinblue can only support settings all size in pixel (px), so you need to convert the size of print-area from in/cm/mm to pixel.
When converting, you may need to notice the DPI.
You can use this website: pixelcalculator.com to convert in/mm/cm to pixel in different DPI.
The higher the DPI is, the bigger the resolution is.
Usually in printing, the standard DPI is 300 and the minimum should be 150. Lower DPI may result in bad printing quality.
For example: a 4x9in printarea can be converted to 1200x2700px with 300 dpi, but only 288x648px with 72 dpi.
Learn more about DPI here: A Guide To Understand DPI.
