Hello! I have quite a tedious problem, I am not the best with Illustrator and I have a default business card size 3.5x2 in or 252x144 px artboard I am working on. So I get everything done and my logo and text on it, afterwards I use the "Save for Web" option to export it PNG so I can upload it to a site for them to print, however it is super blurry! Nothing like in the program, I have never experienced this before as I used illustrator a couple times to make some small cards and they came out fine. However they come out blurry and not even readable. I also tried saving as PNG but that changes the resolution of the file when I put 300 DPI. I want to have the same resolution while retaining sharpness, correct me if I am wrong but is that not how vector files work, and if possible is there a solution around this?

 

Cheers and thank you in advanced.

Why do you upload a PNG for printing?

Save as a PDF and then use that for sending to print. If the printing service doesn't allow PDF, then use a different one.

Find out the pixel dimensions of your homescreen. And thn export it so that it fits in there. That's basically all you can do.

Hi. The PNG format converts the document content to pixels, this is why you see it blurry. You need to avoid converting to pixels using a format that supports vector information like PDF.
