I created artwork in Illustrator in a 16 x 24 size. I want to print it this size. In order to print I saved as a JPEG.  But when I load it on sites like Society6 and RedBubble, it will only print it small (like postcard size). When I try to put on a poster, I get a message that my image size is too small.  How do I fix this? I am a newbie to Illustrator is the first thing I have created that I have tried to print.

Well, what are the document DPI? A 16 x 24 at 72 DPI is still tiny. You will need to crank it up to 300 at least for most print uses. The actual math is more complicated, but no time for long-winded explanations. You can always look this up in a web search...
