This video goes over what does DPI mean and when it matters.

DPI, or Dots Per Inch is a printing term that is used to define the print resolution for typically a physically printed item. Think something like a poster or a sign.

PPI or Pixels Per Inch is a digital term for screen resolution at a certain size of screen.

DPI / PPI is often used incorrectly when applied to a pure pixel measurement, so this video dives into the topic and explains the differences.
