Why You Should Vectorize Your Files
Vector graphics are computer generated 2D images. Different from rasterized pictures they are not based on pixels but are based on stored lists of drawing instructions. They’re composed of graphical primitives such as lines, circles, squares and polygons or curves. Additionally, the base shape, stroke, color, pattern or gradient fillings are stored.
Vector files are not only needed for logos while line drawings are needed for any sticker and sign production. Laser cutters and plotters need vector files to draw or cut shapes. In instruction manuals, spare part catalogs and for pictograms it’s also very common to use line drawings.
If icons for software development are done as vectored drawings it’s quick and easy to change colors or adjust some other design aspects later on. This is especially useful when different skins should share the same icons, but have different color styles.
Further, vectors are infinitely scalable without losing their sharp edges. That’s why they don’t look pixelated on any screen or printed in any size. Use our vectorization service to get endless scalable graphics.
