Printing iPad Art & Drawings

A growing trend made famous by David Hockney, a number of artists are getting in touch with us to discuss the work they’ve created with an Apple iPad (or other touch screen devices). The most common question is how big will my images print, that depends on the app that is being used.

Some will use the pixel size of the iPad’s screen (iPad 1, 2 and mini is 1024 x 768 and the iPad 3 and 4 is 2,048 x 1,536), other apps will zoom and increased canvas sizes so you can create larger images than the iPad’s screen size.

iPad Drawing - Apps & Pixel Print Sizes - How Big?

Here’s a list of some of the most popular drawing apps on the iPad and their largest canvas size, and the print sizes they relate to;

Some of the applications above will have options for different canvas sizes, make sure you’re using the largest size possible.

We usually state that we can enlarge images by approximately 125% to 150% depending on the quality and sharpness of the original image, so your images may be able to be printed a little larger than the sizes listed above. You can send your images to us to check possible print sizes, you can also upload your image and use our online Image Check here to find the ideal and largest possible print sizes from your image.
