Okay, so what is a vector design anyway? An image is made up of dots. The closer the dots are to each other and the smaller the dots are, the higher would be the resolution. Often, when you enlarge an image, it becomes hazy. However, this problem does not occur with vector graphics. What vector graphics do to achieve this is to store the lines, shapes and colors of the image as mathematical formulae. So, even when an image is enlarged, these mathematical formula would be used to construct the image, resulting in a high quality image.
Imagine if you wanted to showcase your company’s products and you could let the user enlarge the image for better viewing without reducing the resolution of the image! Vector designs are gaining popularity, since it adds great value in displaying products and maps, for interior designers and architects and especially for screen printing on T-shirts.
