With so many designers out there providing "low-cost" logo design, there also comes a large amount of people who need their low resolution (bitmap or raster) logos re-created in hi-resolution, industry standard (vector) form. Below I have outlined some important information about bitmap vs. vector graphics and the differences between them. 1981 now offers these services to anyoneone who needs them!
Why should you choose 1981 for your vectorization services?
What is Vector Format?
A bitmap image is pixel-based, meaning the image is created of different colored dots placed in relation to other colored dots or pixels. They look their best at a specific resolution or size. If you try to make a bitmap image larger than it is, it will pixelate and become distorted. This means that if you have a bitmap image for your logo thats a certain size, you will only be able to use it in that size or sometimes smaller. This is very limiting.
A vector image is totally different. Vector graphics use geometrical primitives such as points, lines, curves, and shapes or polygon(s), which are all based on mathematical equations, to represent images in computer graphics. Because of this, it doesn't matter how the graphics are re-sized, the math re-creates the exact image before the change with no distortion.
Below is a list of vector file types with links to their respective wiki page for more information
