We create hi-resolution vector artwork from low resolution jpgs, bitmaps and other raster art files. Vector art is also known as camera ready art. A vector art image is an image created on the fly by the numerical coordinates that are contained within the EPS file. Vector images can be scaled up or down infinitely without the loss of resolution and are much smaller files than bitmap files.
Vector images also allow you to change color and edit individual elements with ease. Many print shops and promotional product companies require vector art files. There are no resolution problems with dots or pixels. Type and lines remain crisp not bitmapped.
Bitmap images are made up of pixels, and can not be scaled up effectively. Most bitmap file formats are jpg, tif or gif. These file formats are not acceptable for quality print jobs.
Vectorizing Artwork Services
We can convert any logo or graphic to vector format. If you have an old logo or graphic we can help. All we need from you is a scan or copy of the image to be cleaned up into vector art format. Want to see how its done? Visit my blog for a step by step how-to video.
Vector conversion is done by hand (mouse) and not through an automated process. This ensures that your logo is at the highest quality. The final files are sent back to you as .eps and .pdf formats. The EPS file is what you will send to your vendor for reproduction. The PDF file is for you to proof.
Our prices start at $15.00 for a very simple logo, $30 for most logos and $60 for more complicated logos.
