WHAT RESOLUTION SHOULD MY FILE BE?

Your resolution must be 300 dpi. When you start setting up your file make sure the setting is at 300 dpi. If you start your image at 72 dpi and change it to 300 dpi the resolution will still be a low resolution document. This affects the over all quality of your image. (See below for example)
