Which product are you using?
Which version?

Are you talking about scaling up an existing image or design, or creating a new design?

Yes, I want to up scale up an existing design. Is it possible? I created it at a low dpi. Can I scale it up and have it still print good quality?

Thank you for responding.

It'll only be as good as the original image.
If you have text or vector shapes, those will work well when scaled up.
But bitmap images don't gain any quality - but they'll look less blocky if scaled up.
