Consider reading this page to understand the references we use to assure optimal print quality for you.

In general, an image with 300 DPI (Dots per inch) resolution is considered to be best for printing. However, it may be possible to achieve required experience at resolutions as low as 100 DPI depending on the requirement and context best judged by users. Thus, we recommend users to send us 300 DPI images for printing, keeping a lower cut-off at 675×450 pixels on images for all supported sizes.

Users may print a low resolution image on larger size paper understanding that it may and in most cases it will impact the output.
