Graphic File Types
The difference between vector and raster graphics
is that raster graphics are composed of pixels,
while vector graphics are composed of paths.
Common raster graphic types: JPG, TIFF, a scan, fax
or photocopy saved as a PDF, BMP, PNG, GIF
Raster Graphics cannot be enlarged without losing
quality. When raster graphics are enlarged they
become "fuzzy," since each pixel increases in size as
the image is made larger. *
The raster format is best suited for photographs.
Common Vector graphic types: AI, EPS, PDF
Vector graphics are the preferred format for logos
and text. Vector graphics can be enlarged without
losing quality. For signage they will typically consist
of solid areas of color with few or no gradients.
Where to get your logo in vector format?
Do you have a Brand Manual? Try contacting your
Marketing Department or the Designer that created
If a vector graphic of your logo is not available a
high resolution raster image is recommended.
For High Resolution we recommend;
larger than 6 inches along the smaller dimension
and 200 dpi or greater
A high resolution file has more pixels which result
in a higher quality reproduction.
*Most images taken from a website are raster and
will not print well because they are low resolution.
