http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0045/4202/files/Corporate_Program.jpg?9075(1) Laser Engraving (as well as our other processes) requires a VECTOR file.

(2) Opening a PIXEL file in a vector program does not convert PIXEL artwork into VECTOR artwork.

(3) Adobe Illustrator is a VECTOR program. Common file extensions for Adobe Illustrator are .EPS, .AI.

(4) Adobe Photoshop is a PIXEL program. Common file extensions for Adobe Photoshop are .PSD, .JPG.

(5) Some computers can not open .EPS or .AI files unless the computer has a VECTOR program installed.

(6) Designers can save VECTOR files as a .PDF, so every computer can open and view the VECTOR artwork or logo. This does not mean that all .PDF files are VECTOR files. Be sure to check that your designer created the .PDF in a VECTOR program.



// GOOD FILE! ZOOM IN on VECTOR FILE


WHY ONLY VECTORS?
Our laser engraver can only follow mathematically produced lines. VECTOR files use the elements of geometry. Points, lines, curves, and shapes or polygon(s), are all based on mathematical expressions. VECTOR graphics are visual expressions of the relationships between points on a grid which form the artwork or a logo. When artwork or a logo is created in a VECTOR program it can be scaled up or down with PERFECT CLARITY (i.e. sized to fit a business card which is small, or a bill board ad which is very large). This is because the points on the grid and the relationships between these points are being mathematically adjusted.

WHY WE CAN'T ACCEPT PIXELS?
PIXEL files do not contain a mathematical equation for a laser engraver to follow. No matter how simple the logo is, we can not create a laser engraving with a PIXEL file. PIXEL files are made of tiny boxes of color. Zooming in on a photo of a face you will see hundreds of colors ranging from black, orange, red, white, pink, yellow, brown... et-cetera. Each one of these tiny boxes of color is a single PIXEL. A Photoshop, .PSD, .JPG, file of a logo is the same as a photo of a face. If you zoom in the image will be made of tiny colorful boxes or PIXELS.
