What are Vectors, and Why do You Need Them?
Make sure to keep your logo and artwork of the highest possible quality. Here’s why you should be using vectors.
Unlike a standard image (Raster image), a vector does not depend on pixels and can be scaled to any size whilst retaining its quality and sharpness. A vector logo can be scaled down onto smaller printed materials or blown up for large signs!
For promotional products especially, it’s essential to have a clear logo on display. Keep your business looking professional and display your logo in the best quality.
A raster graphic or image is created by pixels. Pixels are small squares of data. To understand what a raster graphic is, imagine a large grid-connected into many squares (pixels) of the same size. If you put a different colour in each square and back away from the grid, the separate squares blend to make up a picture. Raster graphics are perfect for creating rich and precise images. Every pixel in a raster image can be of various colours. Therefore, you can construct a complex picture with colour changes and variations. However, the downfall of raster graphics is that images cannot be scaled up in size very well. If you try to enlarge a raster image, it will look grainy and distorted because raster images are created with a finite number of pixels.
Vector graphics are more adaptable than raster graphics because they can be effortlessly scaled up and down without any loss to the quality of the image. A vector graphic comprises a series of minor points that combine to make lines and images based on mathematical formulas. The most recognized applications which handle vector-based graphics are Adobe illustrator, Macromedia freehand, and Corel draw. This type of graphic is mainly used for line art, illustrations and embroidery.
Whether you’re aiming for a business card, a banner, or a poster, you want your logo to be legible, scalable, and editable. Vectorized logos are an industry necessity, allowing designers the freedom to scale a file for any use, from a printed mug to a major ad campaign.
