What's a vector logo? There are two very different types of graphics: vector and bitmap graphics. Bitmaps are made up a series of pixels in a grid and cannot be resized without losing quality. Vector Illustration software allows you to create drawings using lines and curves which can be easily edited by moving points, adjusting curves, and changing the colors of various objects. Vector illustrations, because they consist of points and objects rather than pixels are resolution free. Unlike bitmapped images, they will always print at the highest resolution, giving you smooth fills and crisp lines no matter what size you print it.
What software do I need to edit the logo? Adobe Illustrator®, CorelDRAW or Macromedia® FreeHand, Deneba Canvas™ or other compatible vector drawing program.
What color space do the logos use? RGB but the artwork can be changed to CMYK. You may see a slight shift in color when the illustration is converted from RGB to CMYK. RGB files tend to be brighter and are suitable for the web and some printers.
What size are the logos? Vector logos are resolution independent and are scalable without losing quality using a vector illustration program such as Adobe Illustrator or CorelDRAW. If you know what size logo you need, Kathy can provide a jpeg scaled to the correct size.
