When working on a project in Adobe Illustrator, everything takes place on an artboard. This is Illustrator's general term for a canvas, and multiple artboards can exist within the same workspace. Canvas size in Illustrator is always flexible, and it's easy to change an artboard's dimensions at any point in the creative process. Below, we've outlined how to resize an artboard to your own needs, or to have Illustrator adjust an artboard automatically so that your design always fits.
How to Manually Resize an Artboard
How to Automatically Resize an Artboard

Illustrator is used to create vector artwork which can be scaled to any size with no loss of resolution. If you are using raster effects (like glows and drop shadows) set your raster effects setting to 600. If 300 is the highest setting the program allows, use that but build your art at 200% of the final size. Illustrator considers the other image to be 6.94444 inches wide. So, we’re talking here of 500 pixels on 6.94 inches of width = 72 pixels per inch (so: 72 DPI). Therefore, that’s pretty much the only use of the DPI entered in the header of a JPG or PNG file. Designer's guide to DPI. This guide is designed as a 'get started' or introductory read for the starting to intermediate designer who wants to learn or get more knowledge about cross-DPI and cross-platform design from the very beginning. Change 72 DPI to 300 DPI in Illustrator. Go to “Effects” then select “Document Raster Effects Settings”. Either check high-quality 300dpi or do a custom setting and use 355 dpi which is recommended for high-end publication use. Make your PDF and that should do it. The 72dpi is a way of keeping the file smaller and have illustrator. Printer resolution is measured in the number of ink dots produced per inch (dpi). Most desktop laser printers have a resolution of 600 dpi, and imagesetters have a resolution of 1200 dpi or higher.
