What is a vector image?

Vector images which are created in Adobe Illustrator (.ai) or Coral Draw (.cdr) 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 then artwork charges will apply.

For simple artwork we would not charge so even though we prefer an ai or eps vector files its best to send over your artwork in the format you have and let us see what needs to be done.
