Questions we’ll need to cover, to determine cost and timing:
That last question probably needs a little clarification. What it amounts to is that rendering for use on the web would only require an image size of approximately 900 x 1200 pixels, at most. Once you move into print, it gets more complicated based on the size of the printed image and how your audience will see it.
Obviously, printing a 4” x 6” card needs a much smaller image than a 4’-0” x 8’-0” sign. Likewise, something you might hold in your hand to view would need to be printed at a higher resolution (200-300 pixels per inch) than something like a billboard that you are driving past, at a couple hundred feet away (where 72 pixels per inch is probably sufficient). The largest image I’ve rendered was 10,800 x 14,400 pixels (6’-0” x 8’-0” at 150 pixels per inch).
My suggestion would be to determine the LARGEST you will want the image rendered. Reducing an image doesn’t affect the quality, but trying to blow up a smaller image can look grainy and pixelated.
How you can expect my process to go:
