Vector vs. Raster Files
When sending and creating artwork, it’s important to know the difference between raster and vector art. When possible, vector art is preferred, as it will give you the best possible image quality. When raster art is used, such as in photos, ensuring it is sent at 300dpi will give you the best possible outcome. Not sure how to tell the difference? Read more about it here.
