Generalize your code to accept an OBJECT instead of hard coding to a picture box. When you need to see it on screen render to the Picture Box, but when you need to print render to the PRINTER. This will give you a printout that uses the best resolution of the printer instead of the best resolution of the picture box.

PUBLIC Target AS OBJECT

SET Target = Picture1    'Render to picture box
CALL Render

SET Target = PRINTER    'Render to print device
CALL Render
.

PRIVATE SUB Render( Tgt AS OBJECT )

Tgt.Print ...

END SUB

I can send more code if this isn't clear enough
