Bitmap/Raster Images:
Common formats: .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, .BMP, .TIFF
Bitmap or Raster images save shapes in a single resolution as a series of coordinates with assigned colour values. These images work well on the web because screens typically display at 72 DPI (Dots Per Inch). However, when scaled larger, bitmap images pixelate or “fall apart,” losing clarity. For high-quality print output, which is usually at 300 DPI or higher, images need to be at least five times larger to maintain clarity.
Laser engraving, on the other hand, produces tiny single points of light at a resolution of 2400 DPI – about 35-40 times the resolution of a computer screen. This means an image that appears 10cm square on your computer screen would need to be 3.5 meters square to match the laser's engraving capability.

Vector graphics use mathematical formulas to describe lines and shapes, allowing them to scale perfectly without losing quality. This ensures smooth curves and sharp output, regardless of the size. Common vector image formats include .AI, .EPS, .SVG, and sometimes .PDF. For laser engraving, we often convert bitmap graphics to vector formats, which requires expertise and involves additional cost.

How to Obtain Your Logo/Graphic as a Vector:
- Ask the Original Designer: If you know who designed your logo or graphic, request the vector file from them.
- Unknown Designer: If you don’t know who designed it, provide us with as much information as possible, including any font names, which can be extremely helpful. We’ll handle the rest.

A Quick Word About CAD Software:
CAD software output is similar to vector but not quite the same. CAD uses straight lines, even for curves, resulting in a series of small straight lines joined together to form shapes. We can convert these lines to a vector format, but if you can provide the vector format directly, it will save time and cost.
Converting Raster to Vector:
Simply importing a raster image into a vector-capable program and saving it as a vector won’t work. This only embeds the raster image within a vector file, which is less useful than providing the original raster image.
