    Hi:

    I have a website and am doing a little halloween campaign. I would like to have stickers included in that. I have the graphics in a bmp file and they have been uploaded to my website and I have them linked up to a page. When you go to that page and print them out, they are too small.
    I have seen on kidsprintable.com and other sites that they have print ready copies. I would like for folks to be able to go out and buy the blank sticker pages and be able to these graphics onto those pages....there are three graphics across the top and four down (total of 12). Before I downloaded the bmp page, it was the right size. Can anyone help me resize this page on my website? Thanks so much!!

    What is the resolution of the .bmp images?

    I would also comment that putting .bmp format images on a website for download can be a real problem, as they are by nature very large in file size.

    They can be unuseable for people on dial-up access.

    You would capture all the quality you need with a compressed format, such as .jpg
    I also wonder if the web page host is automatically reducing the resolution (due to file size limits)

    If you post the address of your web page, we could comment with more accuracy.

    After working with this for a long time, I finally realized that it was my bmp causing the problem...I went back, moved some graphics over and waa-laa ... downloaded the page again...it's printing out beautifully...
    I appreciate the info about .jpg - I will definitely try that next time...
    Thanks so much
