Converting pixel graphics to vector graphics for plot printing

Pixel graphics cannot be used for plotting. These need to be rendered into vector graphics.

Some programs perform this task automatically for you. In Adobe Illustrator, this function is called line trace. If you use Corel Draw, use vectorize bitmaps.

Alternatively you can also render your file manually. In Adobe, there is a feature called pen tool, and in Corel it is the freehand tool which deliver good results to thicken lines and corners with your mouse or on your pen tablet.

You can also ask our Graphics Service to assist you with this task. For $19.99, our experts will turn your template into vector graphics.
