What is a vector image?
Vector images which are created in Adobe Illustrator (.ai) are best because they’re scalable, vector-based images are resolution independent. You can increase and decrease the size of vector images to any degree and your lines will remain crisp and sharp, both on screen and in print. Fonts are a type of vector object.
If your flags are going to be screen printed then for each colour there needs to be a film cut, to cut the image on the film the software needs a lined drawing and that’s what a vector image is a lined drawing.
With digital printed flags we run straight from the file.
If your artwork is complicated and you don’t have a vector image still email it we may have to redraw it into vector. This is a free service of ours.
