» What are your preferred file types?
It's easier for us to work with vector art files, or high-resolution PDFs (300 dpi or higher). However, we do accept other types of files, .jpeg, .png, but sometimes resolution quality is not the best. Keep in mind that could be an extra charge for artwork or logo improvement.
» What is the difference between vector art file and raster art file?
In a nutshell, vector art is composed of paths while raster art is composed of pixels.
The following file types are ALWAYS raster-based:.jpg | .gif | .png | .tif | .bmp
The following file types are OFTEN vector-based:.ai | .cdr | .eps | .pdf | .ps | .wmf
You CANNOT take a file and simply change the extension (.jpg, .eps) to convert it from raster to vector.
We prefer vector art with text converted to outlines, but we can work with other file types you might have. Vector files are easy to manipulate, we can resize it on any measurement either make it bigger or smaller, the integrity of the artwork will not deteriorate.
