Vector Artwork

What is vector artwork? Vector artwork is the best artwork you can send us. The files extension for this type will include: AI., EPS., PDF.

Unlike JPEGs, GIFs, and BMP images, vector graphics are not made from a grid of pixels. Vector images are made of paths, which are defined by a start and end point, as well as using other points, curves, and angles. These vector images are mostly hand drawn using programs such as Adobe Illustrator or SignLab. By doing so each object can be selected individually and changed from the rest of the image. Vector files are line art, scalable to any size without losing resolution - the image will stay clean and crisp. Vector files can be submitted at any size proportionate to the banner size ordered. If submitting these files be sure you have converted all fonts to outlines or curves.

Vectorizing & Recreating Images

If you are not able to provide us with a good quality image, we do have professional designers to help you with your project. Please contact our shop for more details.


We allow up to 3 revisions per design, however sometimes it takes more time to get your unique design right.  In such cases, we do apply additional revision fees. 

Complex Art

Images with more detail are subject to quoting prior to vectoring the image. Please contact a sales representative for more details.

Raster Art

Most images you see on your computer screen are raster graphics. Pictures found on the web and photos you import from your digital camera are raster graphics. Raster graphics can typically be scaled down with no loss of quality, but enlarging a bitmap, JPEG. image causes it to look blocky and "pixelated." For this reason, vector graphics are often used for such images like company logos, which need to be scaled to different sizes. If your only graphic is a raster type the higher resolution it can be saved as the better, such as 300 DPI or higher.

Common file extensions for such files are: BMP., TIF., GIF., or JPG..

How to Convert Text to Outlines for Printing

If you want your artwork file to print properly, it is essential that you have your fonts converted to outlines. If you do not submit files with the text converted, your font will be converted to a default font. When you convert your text to outlines, your text turns into a vector image. The text is no longer editable.
