A vector graphic uses math to draw shapes using points, lines and curves. So whereas a raster logo of a 1” x 1” square at 300 dpi will have 300 individuals pieces of information, a vector logo will only contain four points, one for each corner; the computer will use math to “connect the dots” and fill in all of the missing information. The most common types of vector graphics? Fonts and logos. Popular vector file format extensions include: eps, ai and pdf.
So, no matter how small a logo, as long as it’s in vector format, it can be enlarged infinitely and will show up nice and crisp on your printed product.
A raster graphic is an image made of hundreds (or thousands or millions) of tiny squares of color information, referred to as either pixels or dots. The most common type of raster graphic? A photograph. Popular raster file format extensions include: jpg/jpeg, psd, png, tiff, bmp and gif.
