I am trying to print my artwork that I made in procreate. It’s 300 DPI 1600 x 2000 pixels. When I print it on a 20 x16 inch sheet it looks grainy. How can I avoid this in the future. Can you make quality prints using procreate

Hard to guess what you mean by grainy?

If you mean pixelated, then 1600 x 2000 pixels may
be too little for a 20 x 16 inch print.

Why don't you ask a print shop/copy store what they would
say about that. Or check out their website.

It may also depend on your painting technique. For example,
if you use grainy brushes. But in general it is possible to make
high quality prints with Procreate. What really counts here is
the right pixel resolution.

I have looked in one of my painting programs
and these are the values I get.

200 dpi
20 x 16 Inch = ca 51 x 41 cm
= 4016 x 3228 pixels

300 dpi
6024 x 4843 pixels
