What is a vector?

There are two forms of media graphics:

                                                                             Raster      -      Formats = JPEG, PNG, TIFF, PDF, BMP, RAW, GIFF 

                                                                             Vector      -      Formats =  EPS, AI, CDR, PDF 

Raster images are genereally shown as JPEG's, PNG, GIFF, BMP and TIFF files. A Raster image uses a grid of individual pixels where each pixel relates to a specific colour or shade. Depending on the amount of pixels in your file will determine the quality of the raster image. A photograph is a good example of a raster image and if you were to make the photo the size of a billboard then you would see the pixels of the image. So that is why if you want to submit Raster images then you must make sure they are high quality (300 dpi). If you only have Raster logos then please ensure they are high quality and we may be able to convert them into vectors.

Vector graphics use mathematical relationships between points and the paths connecting them to describe an image. Without going into too much detail the simplest way to understand what a vector file is that if you where to make the vector image as big as a billboard then the lines and detail would remain the same without any pixilation. These files are usually created using vector graphic software such as Adobe Illustrator. For the highest quality printing we recommend you send all your images as vector files in this way (eps, ai, cdr or vector PDF).
