The definition of Printer Resolution
Printer resolution, also known as output resolution, refers to the maximum number of dots per inch that can be printed in both the horizontal and vertical directions during printout, usually expressed in dots per inch (dpi). The so-called maximum resolution refers to the maximum resolution that the printer can print, which is the limit resolution of the printout.
Print resolution is an important indicator to measure the print quality of a printer. It determines the fineness of the printer when it prints an image. Its level of influence has an important influence on the output quality. Therefore, to some extent, the print resolution is determined. The output quality of the printer. The higher the resolution, the more pixels it can display, the more information it can present and the better and clearer the image.
The printing resolution generally includes two directions, vertical and horizontal. The specific numerical value determines the quality of the printing. Generally, the output resolution of the laser printer in the longitudinal and lateral directions is almost the same, but We can also artificially adjust the control; the output resolution of the inkjet printer in the longitudinal and lateral directions is very different. Generally speaking, the resolution of the inkjet printer refers to the lateral inkjet expression. For example, 800*600dpi, where 800 represents the number of dots displayed in the horizontal direction on the printing web, and 600 represents the number of dots displayed in the longitudinal direction. The resolution is not only related to the size of the display print size, but also affected by factors such as print dot pitch and print size. The print size is the same, the smaller the dot pitch, the higher the resolution.
Usually the printer resolution of Thermal Printer is 203DPI, and High quality thermal transfer printer can reach to 300 DPI.
