Vector Artwork: An Introduction [VIDEO]

At Quality Logo Products, we do what we can to make ordering custom items as simple as possible. Still, we know how confusing certain parts of the ordering process can be.

Vector artwork, for example, plays a critical role. In order for custom logos and text to appear as vivid and detailed as possible, they’ll need to be optimized in vector format.

Of course, many of our first-time customers have been curious as to why that is. So, in an effort to shed some much-needed light on how integral vector artwork is to the custom printing process, we’re putting together a series of videos on the subject.

Part One is up and running — go ahead and give it a look-see:

 

As you can imagine, vectored art is invaluable when it comes to customizing all those spiffy new promo items we pride ourselves on!

While our team of graphic artists can easily convert standard images to vectored format for customers, it’s worth noting that the conversion will require a small artwork fee – something we’d like our customers to avoid when possible.

QUICK TIP: When placing an order, double-check to see whether you have the vectored version of the artwork you’re sending. Odds are that the vector file is already stored on your computer somewhere. If not, you’ll probably be able to obtain the vector file by simply contacting the original graphic designer that created it. This way, you’ll avoid those pesky ‘artwork fees.’

If you’ve still got questions as to why vector art is so integral to the world of promotional products, then you’ll definitely want to consult the original article that inspired this series: Artwork 101: A Beginner’s Guide to Vector Artwork.

Stay tuned for more of the Vector Artwork video series in the near future! And in the meantime, be sure to swing by our Youtube channel to get a look at the brand new design!

    Another killer video! Way to go, media department!

    I’m most looking forward to converting RGB to CMYK. I know how to do it in Photoshop but I haven’t tried in Illustrator. It’d be nice if it was the same. :)

    I know our customers will love these videos, and I know I will too! I’ve heard of ‘vector artwork’, but only because of working here and even then I’m not entirely sure what it is. This introductory video did a wonderful job summing it up and the other videos you mentioned will really help me and others understand it too. Way to go web team! You guys rock!!!

      Thanks, Amy! Our goal with this series is definitely to sum things up as plainly as we can. So, if you say we’ve succeeded so far, then that’s all the affirmation we need.

      But yes, we do rock. ;)
