ive been asked to design a sign for putting outside a store. The size of the sign is 50*70 cm's.
How do i get around spot-able pixels? I really dont want shapes and pictures being destroyed by pixel changes, i want it as smooth as possible.

How do i calculate it perfectly?

I'd call a local sign shop & ask what they wanted to work with.

What size, in pixels, before resampling is the digital image, and from what camera?
How is it being printed, wet processed photo paper or offset lithograph?
What software do you have?

I have printed dozens of 50x75 cm. prints from 8/10 MP and 21 MP images and in none of them can you see pixels. From more than a meter distance you can't see much difference between them. From 30 cm you can see much more detail in the prints from the 5D2, despite the fact that the cameras had much the same sensor resolution. From the 5D2 I have also made flawless 67x100 cm. prints.

I use the Resize module in Perfect Photo Suite as needed to enlarge. The module is the former Genuine Fractals program. The algorithms are licensed to government agencies for photo enlargement.
