Frequently Asked Questions
- What type of artwork services do you offer?
- Do you offer chenille digitizing?
- How do I create an artwork order?
- What is the difference between Vector and raster Artwork?
- Do I need to specify my application for the artwork?
1. What type of artwork services do you offer?
We take raster images (jpg, bmp, tif, gif, etc.) and convert them to vector formats (ai, cdr, eps, wmf or pdf) or embroidery files (dst.)
2. Do you offer chenille digitizing?
At this time, MESA does not offer chenille digitizing. Chenille digitizing is a very different process, and we don't want to offer a service that we are not expertly qualified to do.
2. How do I create an artwork or digitizing order?
After logging in please click on submit artwork order from the top of the left menu. Fill out the form with your requirements for the order.
3. What is the difference between Vector and Raster Artwork?
Bitmapped images, also called raster images, are made of pixels. Pixels are tiny dots of solid color that make up what you see on your computer screen. Most computer monitors display approximately 70 to 100 pixels per inch -- the actual number depends on your monitor and screen settings. All scanned images are bitmaps, and all images from digital cameras are bitmaps. Common bitmap formats include bmp, jpg, tiff, gif, png, and psd.
Vector images are made up of individual, scalable objects. These objects are defined by mathematical equations rather than pixels, so they always render at the highest quality. Objects may consist of lines, curves, and shapes with editable attributes such as color, fill, and outline. Changing the attributes of a vector object does not affect the object itself, so you can change the color, shape or size of a vector image without affecting the quality. Vector images have many advantages, but the primary disadvantage is that they're unsuitable for producing photo-realistic imagery. Common vector formats include cdr (CorelDRAW), ai (Adobe Illustrator) and eps. Please note that a bitmapped image can also be saved as these file types but they will still be bitmapped images regardless of the file type or file extension. Saving a vector image as a bitmapped file type, such as jpg or bmp, will convert the image to a bitmap.
4. Do I need to specify my application for the artwork?
Yes, there is a drop down menu on the order form to select the application which best fits your needs.
