Vector Conversion

Vector Conversion is the process of reproducing raster images in vector format. Raster is a common image file format, such as jpg & png, and is widely used on the web. Vector graphics are not as common; this type of file is usually required for processes, other than printing, that reproduce the image on a physical product, such as engraving, signage, laser cutting, sandblasting, etching, stamping and more. Raster images are pixel-based, vector graphics are math-defined shapes. Raster vs Vector

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.

Vector graphics are resolution independent, they can be used at ANY resolution. 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 Pantone spot color swatches for an exact color match.

Vector is required by many companies - Many companies prefer vector art and some equipment must have vector art for the process .such as engraving, glass etching, sign blasting and cutting and enamel pins and products.

When a photo is not accepted for a particular process - Vector graphics are drawings, so this option should only be considered if replacing the photo with a drawing is acceptable.
