Why Convert to Vector?
Vector art is scalable – You can enlarge a vector file to any size without losing quality. Raster images on the other hand are made of pixels and do not scale up without losing quality, they usually look pixelated when enlarged. Vector graphics are not made of pixels – they are composed of objects based on mathematical calculations – their quality is not affected when enlarged.
Vector graphics are resolution independent, they can be used at the highest resolution possible. For example if a printer requests a 600 dpi (dots per inch) image file, the vector file can be printed at 600 dpi, if a printer requires a 1200 dpi file, the same vector file can be printed at 1200 dpi, etc. The resolution of a raster image is limited to the number of pixels included in the file.
Reduce the number of colors & printing costs – With vector images you can reduce the number of color plates the printer will need to print your image – and reduce printing costs – and you can select from pre-printed spot color swatches for an exact color match.
Vector is required by many companies – A lot of sign companies, engravers, screen and specialty printers prefer vector art for their processes. Other processes such as engraving and vinyl cutting for signs MUST use vector art because their equipment is guided by a path present only in vector files.
Vector files can produce many different file formats – Vector files can also be saved as or exported as many other file formats including: EPS, AI, CDR, PDF, JPG, TIF, PNG, WMF etc…
