WHAT IS AN EPS FILE FORMAT?
WHAT IS AN EPS FILE?
EPS stands for Encapsulated PostScript. It is a versatile vector format, which instead of saving the image pixel by pixel (raster bitmaps e.g. jpg and gif files), it saves it as lines and curves. Thus the logos provided in this format are infinitely scalable and editable line by line. EPS files can be generated by all drawing applications as well as most layout applications. Image manipulation programs like Adobe® Photoshop® can also save bitmap images as EPS-files.
Some printer drivers are also capable of generating EPS-files as well as PostScript files.
WHAT COMPUTER PROGRAMS DO THE EPS LOGO FILES WORK WITH?
All commercial drawing and desktop publishing programs, such as CorelDRAW®, Adobe® Illustrator®, QuarkXPress™, Deneba Canvas™, Adobe® PageMaker®, Macromedia FreeHand, can use these logos. Also if your software can import EPS files (*.eps) for example Adobe® Photoshop®.
Finally they can be used in most vinyl cutting software like SignLab and SignMate.
WINDOWS OR MACINTOSH?
EPS files will work on both Windows and Macintosh computers.
WHAT IS THE RESOLUTION?
All the logos are in vector format, which means that they are resolution independent. They can be re-sized to any dimension with absolutely no loss of quality. The can also be edited line by line, curve by curve.
WILL I HAVE TO TRACE THE LOGO?
No, we've done the work for you all the logos are fully vectorized and available as EPS files.
WHEN I OPEN THE EPS FILE ALL I GET IS A LOW RESOLUTION BITMAP WHY?
Although this is rare, It appears you are using an older or incompatible version of the software. We promise however to make it work for you. Simply send us an email with the software/version you are using and we will convert the file for you.
WHEN I OPEN THE EPS FILE ALL I GET IS A WHITE BOX WITH AN X IN IT?
When you receive your eps logos by email don't open them directly. Save them to your hard drive first then start your software package and open the files through the program.
