What is a vector file?

Vector art is created in a vector-based software program like Adobe Illustrator and usually have file endings like .EPS or .AI (mylogo.eps, or mylogo.ai). These sort of files use mathematical equations to draw lines to ensure the image can be scaled easily.

The picture left shows the difference between a vector logo and a raster logo (.JPEG, .JPG, .GIF, etc.). When the vector logo is enlarged, it stays crisp and clean. When the bitmap logo is enlarged, it becomes distorted. If you send us a .JPG logo and we enlarge it to fit on your uniform, it will become distorted.
