I'm trying to export an ArcGIS online basemap (this one: and I'm out of ideas for how to get a good image for printing. It's a large size that I'm printing at (18in x 34in). The basemap looks great in ArcMap (around a scale of 1:1,045,545), but I can't get an export to look good. I've tried different compression types, DPI's, file export types, and they all turn out the same (see attached images -- the nice one is a screenshot of ArcMap, the bad one is my export result). I've done so much research and tried everything I've found, but I just can't get this to work. Please let me know if you have any ideas, or if you are able to get this basemap export to work yourself! I'd be so appreciative!


I'm using ArcMap 10.2.2.
