This might be a hard or simple questions, I admit to don't know.
It's by the way the first time that something like this is been asked to me.

I still don't know the details but it seems that I'll have to export a 3D Text from A.E. with the asked resolution of "300DPI", like in Photoshop for prints.

I still don't know if it will have to be a still frame (well, I think so) or not, but do you guys have any idea about how could I achieve this?

AE is pixel based - as in an example screen resolution is 1024 pixels by 576 pixels.

So if for instance you want an A4 (21cm x 29cm) image at 300dpi - you would need to set up AE to render 2480x3425.

Example set-up for an A4 based on (21cm x 29cm):
72 dpi - 595x822
200 dpi - 2283x1654
300 dpi - 2480x3425

An easy way to find out your needed pixels is open photoshop - set up the size in cms and the desired dpi - then change view to pixels.
