Lost your electronic image file?
For examples of photographs to be changed to vector illustrations (as opposed to photographed items with artwork), please go here.
If you need a graphic vectorized but you do not have an electronic file of the graphic, even if all you have is a photograph of an item with the artwork printed on, embroidered on, or otherwise visible on the photograph, we can try to reproduce it in vector format. See samples below.

We can reproduce an image as a vector graphic using a photograph as a reference but - although we can't readily see this - photographs actually show elements distorted and we will have to guess as to how the original artwork might have looked before it was photographed.
We try at all possible to correct any distortion but without the original "flat" artwork (as in a scan of a printed logo) it is not possible to compare the new vector art with the original design and ensure it is identical. All we can do is compare the new vector file to the photograph which by nature has distortion. Distortion issues.
