What's the size of your print? The text in your PSD will be rasterised. Why don't you export to PDF? That will keep everything as Vector and you don't have to worry about DPI.

110 X 200 cm (a graphic for t-shirt). Is PDF file a good alternative?

What about another case, a graphic creation for a billboard of 2 X 5 meters, how can I solve the matter?

Who needs a T-shirt as long as that? Only a small proportion of the world’s population measures 200 cm (2 metres) or more from head to foot, and most of them will only want a T-shirt that reaches from their shoulders to their hips.

The normal viewing distance for a billboard of that size is large enough that 150 DPI will be more than sufficient.

LOL! Sorry, it should be 110 X 70 cm. :)

Billboard size but close view - it's actually an external cover sticker of a portable store. What's your advice?

Kindly help further, thanks.

Adobe Acrobat cannot handle files larger than 200 inch x 200 inch. Yours is 233.86 in x 96.063 in . Try reducing the size as explained before. 

Thank you for the kind advise, however, if I reduce the size smaller than the actual dimensions (233.86 in x 96.063 in) and export it as a vector in PDF format. Will the quality of the print-out get affected?
