What is a Vector File


If you need to supply us with a vector file, perhaps a logo for your organization, here's a quick guide for what we are looking for.

A vector file is a file comprised of shapes, lines, curves and type that are derived from mathematical formulas. This means the file can be scaled to as large as needed with no degradation in quality. In contrast, a rasterized or bitmap file uses fixed pixels to represent image data, and cannot be scaled up in size without loss in quality.

Vector files are typically:

  • .eps (editable post script)
  • .ai (Adobe Illustrator)
  • .cdr (Corel Draw)

Avoid any of the raster/bitmap formats, such as JPG, TIF, BMP, and GIF.
