Pixel Dimensions for 8x18 banners
For 8x18 banner pixel dimensions should be:
- at 72dpi - 6912x15552 pixels;

- at 150dpi - 14400x32400 pixels;

As a general rule, the more detailed your artwork is, the higher DPI (pixel count) it should to be. For pictures and photographs, lower pixel/dpi counts are fine (72-100dpi). For text rich artwork, and for files with lots of details such as logos, maps, menus, etc, use higher pixel/dpi count (150-300dpi).
72 dpi is the minimum resolution we would recommend for printing, and the 300 dpi for the maximum resolution.
