Paper: Text weight & thinner like everyday copy paper
Cardstock: Cover weight & thicker cardstock
The numbers next to the paper/cardstock represent their weight – the higher the number means the thicker the paper or cardstock.
The paper used for writing/printing (letterheads and such stationery) is generally between 60 to 120 gsm (20 to 70 lb) and is called the paper or text stock. Anything heavier than this is considered the card stock, i.e. the paper used for business cards, postcards, greeting cards, etc.

You can import - .jpeg, .jpg, .png, .gif, .pdf and .svg files only.
It means that photo is low quality and may print soft or out of focus.
How did this happen? The ‘Low Quality Picture’ message will appear on pictures that were saved at a lower resolution than what is recommended for print. This may appear on pictures that were emailed or copied off web pages, cell phone pictures, or pictures that were not scanned at a high enough resolution (dpi). This message may also appear when over-enlarging pictures and scrapbook images on your page.
How to fix this problem: We recommend any of the following solutions to fix this problem.
- Resize the picture box smaller on the page to see if the alert disappears.
- Replace the picture with a higher resolution version that was saved off the original camera (if available).
- If the picture was scanned, re-scan the picture at a higher resolution and/or larger dimension.
Generally, pictures used should be scanned at 100% size at 200-300 DPI. Even though the resolution of the picture may not be optimal, it still may still be satisfactory to you. You may want to view the picture magnified on your screen to see if the quality is to your satisfaction. If you are satisfied with how the picture looks on your screen magnified, you will most likely be satisfied with how it will print on your poster.
