1. What type of artwork services do you offer

We take raster images (jpg, bmp, tif, gif, etc.) and draw them in either Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw creating the vector formats (ai, cdr, eps, wmf or pdf).

2. How do I create an artwork order?

After logging in please click on submit artwork order from the top of the left menu. Fill out the form with your requirements for the order.

3. What is the difference between Vector and Raster Artwork?

Vector art is one of the two forms of art used by computers, with the other form being raster art or bitmap art. Bitmap art is identified as art with file names ending in .GIF, .BMP, .JPEG, .JPG, and .PCX. Vector art, on the other hand, ends in .cdr, .eps, ai, .fh, .wmf, .emf and .pdf. Raster images use a grid, or raster, of small squares known as pixels to represent graphics. Each pixel in a bitmap image has a specific location and color value assigned to it.

When working with bitmap images, groups of pixels are edited rather than objects or shapes. Because they represent subtle gradiations of shades and color, bitmap images are the most common electronic medium for continuous-tone images, such as photographs, etc. Bitmap images are resolution-dependent, in that they represent a fixed number of pixels.

As a result, they can appear jagged and lose detail if they are scaled on-screen, or if they are printed at a higher resolution than they were created for. Vector graphics consist of lines and curves defined by mathematical objects called vectors. Vectors describe graphics according to their geometric characteristics. Vector objects can moved, resized, or changed without losing the quality of the graphic. Vector graphics are resolution-independent, in that they are not defined by a fixed number of pixels and are thusly automatically scaled to appear crisp and sharp on any output device at any resolution.
