How Is Bitmap Different from Vector?

Technical jargon can get a bit overwhelming, but have no fear! Read below to better understand the difference between bitmap and vector images.

For those who don't enjoy tech talk, here's what you need to know:

Bitmap images don't look as nice when they're enlarged or resized. If you try to resize a bitmap image, your image will end up with a bunch of jagged edges. Basically, it will look like something out of a 1985 Nintendo game, but without the retro charm.

Our Recommendation

That's why Quality Logo Products recommends using vector artwork for all your promotional product printing. Vector artwork will produce a sharper imprint with no jagged edges, no matter how big or how small the design is when it's printed on your items.
