Have vector graphics created – these are your advantages
Many companies wonder whether they could not use the logo or image on their website for print products such as large posters. The problem now is that most logos are pixel images in formats such as jpg, png, bmp or tif. If their size is scaled up, the quality inevitably deteriorates. Often it is exactly such situations that require vector graphics in practice. You can recognize vector graphics by the file extensions eps, ai or svg. Unlike raster images, they consist of mathematically described, scalable elements. In their composition, the individual curves and lines can result in complex graphics.
The big advantage for you is: After vectorization, your image file is no longer dependent on a fixed resolution. You can therefore reduce or enlarge it as you wish without any loss of quality. From logo printing on a ballpoint pen to large-area foil lettering, any project can be realised.
Vectorisation is therefore a one-off investment that will pay for itself over the years!
Fields of application of vectorization
The vectorization of logos or images is used in a number of areas. It is suitable for companies as well as for freelancers, associations, public institutions and other organisations. Our vectorisation service is the right choice whenever graphics are to be used professionally on various advertising media and in various formats. In the following we give you some examples of the fields of application.
Vectorization of company logos
Company logos in particular are printed and used in a wide variety of formats. For the company website, business cards or letterhead, a raster graphic may still be sufficient. However, if it is a matter of producing company signs, advertising banners, shop window films or textiles, for example, a company logo as a vector graphic is almost inevitable. Vector data are also usually required for the creation of indoor and outdoor lettering. Common cutting plotters work exclusively on the basis of vector files. In addition to logos, lettering and other pictograms can of course also be vectorised.
Vectorization of club emblems
Not only companies, but also associations need vector graphics. The classic example in this area is the club emblem. It is used in numerous cases and in various sizes. For example, it is applied to jerseys, used on signs or adorns perimeter advertising on football pitches. It is also used on the club’s website and possibly in various print products such as club chronicles.
Vectorization of city or municipal coat of arms
Every municipality is proud of its history, which is reflected in the form of a town or municipality coat of arms. Of course you can also use our vectorization service in this area. We will convert your coat of arms and/or slogan into a high-quality vector graphic so that it can be used without restrictions – for example for signage, banners or information posters.
Vector graphics for freelancers and sole traders
Small businesses and freelancers also use logos to enhance their own image. Especially when there is not an excessive budget available for logo design at the beginning, they like to take advantage of favourable offers. The designer usually delivers the logo as a png or jpg file. This is sufficient for the website. However, as soon as things like company signs or merchandising articles are to be realised, these file formats reach their limits. Use our vectorization service at this point as well to make yourself independent of the resolution.
Vector graphics increasingly in demand in responsive web design
Most websites today are “responsive”. This means that they automatically adapt to the end device of the viewer. The problem here is that images and graphics must look good on large PC screens as well as on small mobile phone displays. Accordingly, web designers usually opt for high-resolution images so that they look high-quality on PC displays. However, these images are then also loaded when a user visits the website, for example via smartphone. The result: long loading times. This is where the so-called SVG graphics format comes into play. These are also vector graphics that can be continuously enlarged and reduced. They always look razor sharp, regardless of the display resolution. The small file size increases the performance of the website. In principle, this format is suitable for all images that are not photos. Typical applications are logos, icons or other symbols.
Create vector graphics yourself?
On the Internet, various possibilities are shown how you can create a vector graphic yourself. But keep in mind that you need special software like Adobe Illustrator to create vector graphics, which is very expensive. Free tools do not give satisfactory results. Also note that vectorization is not simply automatic and “at the touch of a button”. Specific know-how is required to create high-quality vector graphics. In most cases it is therefore more economical to hire an experienced service provider than to purchase expensive software yourself and invest a lot of time in corresponding projects.
Vectorization – unlimited and flexible use of logos and more
Vectorization is a special procedure from the graphic image editing and creation. Vectorizing means creating a so-called vector graphic from a pixel or raster graphic. Through professional vectorization, lettering, pictograms, company logos, drawings and graphics can be changed in size without restrictions, without reducing the quality or worsening the image resolution.
Especially the important company logos benefit from vectorization, as they are usually not only used on a single print product and in a single size, but are needed for letterheads, business cards, advertising banners, posters and company cars in the highest quality. This is perfectly possible with vectorized graphics and logos.
Further advantages of vectorization
In addition to the unlimited scalability of vector graphics, as opposed to pixel graphics, the low memory requirements are another major advantage. With a pixel graphic, the corresponding color code must be stored for each individual pixel, whereas with a vectorized graphic only individual parameters and some necessary additional information are required. Thus, vectorization results in a much smaller memory space for the required parameters. In addition to the lossless and infinitely variable scalability, text can usually also be edited directly, and the good compression properties also speak in favour of a vector graphic. By the way, converting a vectorized graphic into a pixel graphic, if necessary, is much easier than vice versa.
Conclusion: Vectorisation is particularly suitable in the professional and corporate sector for company logos, but also for lettering, geometric figures and designs as well as technical drawings, pictograms, diagrams or charts. And they are extremely advantageous and interesting especially for the print sector. Since the creation of vector graphics requires not only special graphics programs, but also the corresponding know-how and experience, you should definitely hire professionals for a high-quality vectorization of your logos, lettering and graphics. We support you in the perfect vectorization of your logos, fonts and drawings, so that they are available to you at any time and anywhere, in any size and in consistently high quality for the most diverse locations.
