I have a lot of experience redrawing logos into vector format and I usually charge around £10 to £20 for most conversions. Once it’s been converted into a vector image you will able to use this file for lots of other purposes, such as signage, vehicle graphics and most other purposes. The main advantage of a vector image is that it will always remain sharp no matter how large it’s scaled up in size. No more jagged or blurry edges to worry about!
Bitmaps verses Vectors
Vector drawings can be scaled to any size without any loss in quality. This makes them ideal for company logos or other objects that have to be resized frequently.
I can convert your logo from a raster or (bitmap) image to a vector illustration. Your logo will be completely redrawn using the smallest number of points as we can make it, the fewer the points the smaller the file size.
There are two kinds of computer graphics – raster (composed of pixels) and vector (composed of paths). Raster images are more commonly called bitmap images.
A bitmap image uses a grid of individual pixels where each pixel can be a different colour or shade. Bitmaps are composed of pixels.
Vector graphics use mathematical relationships between points and the paths connecting them to describe an image. Vector graphics are composed of paths.
Bitmap images require higher resolutions and anti-aliasing for a smooth appearance. Vector based graphics on the other hand are mathematically described and appear smooth at any size or resolution.
Bitmaps are best used for photographs and images with subtle shading. Graphics best suited for the vector format are Logos, page layout, type, line art or illustrations.
You may have a logo that you have designed yourself, either created using photo editing software or perhaps a design that you’ve hand drawn. 90% of the time we can successfully re-draw it into a vector graphic.
Simply Email your existing logo as a JPEG and I’ll let you know whether I can re-draw it and also give you a quote.
If you have a hand drawn image, you can scan it at a minimum of 150 DPI and save it as a JPEG which you can then send to me by email.
