Illustrator result is pixelated when printed


I drew an A4 chart on AI. It has a grid with cells and they contain textual values. Additionally, my image contains header and footer with lines and text. I exported it as png-24 image and when printed it all comes pixelated. How to have a smooth result on a print?

Accepted Answer

The simplest and easiest answer I can give you is not to export it as a PNG in the first place.

Export your file as a PDF and that should solve your problem.

PNG is a raster image format, whereas a PDF will be able to maintain the vectorized versions of any text, shapes, or other objects created inside AI.
