VECTOR ART VS. RASTER ART

Vector Artwork


Two dimensional artwork that is made up of lines, curves and points. Vector files are resolution indepenedent and can be enlarged infinitely without losing image quality. These files are commonly created in programs such as Adobe Illustrator, Freehand, Corel Draw and Affinity.

Common File Extensions: .ai .eps .pdf .cdr .svg
Important Note: The files types above can contain raster art. If you are unsure about your files, please have us verify your artwork. Please also note that simply saving a raster graphic as a file type listed above does not make it vector artwork.

Raster Artwork


Any artwork that is composed digitally of horizontal and vertical rows of pixels (dots) to make up an image. Scanned images, imported from a digital camera, phone and images found on the web are raster graphics. These files are frequently created in programs such as Adobe Photoshop. Raster files are resolution dependent and cannot be enlarged without loss of image quality.

Common File Extensions: .psd .tif .jpg .png .bmp .gif
Important Note: The file types above are always raster images and can be used with additional work/cost. You will be notified of problems and advised on how to fix them, or we can try to fix them with your authorization. To avoid additional charges PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT RASTER IMAGES TO PRINT.
