In order for me to recreate YOUR EXISTING LOGO for 3D , I must have either the original vector artwork, or be able to match the font (if applies)
WHAT IS VECTOR?
A vector file is native to programs such as Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw and Macromedia Freehand. These three are the industry standard and ideally your artwork should originate from one of these applications.
Once your vector logo is designed, you then output all other files types from this original vector file such as JPG's , PNG and TIFF's for web, video and print.
The file extensions are .ai , .cdr , .fh . An EPS file, Encapsulated PostScript, is also a vector file, a product of a vector based application.
Vector files are created by a mathematical computation. So no matter what size you need to print, a vector logo that is set up for 1 inch tall can print a 100 foot size billboard with no loss.
WHY VECTOR FOR YOUR 3D LOGO?
I need the vector file to import into my 3D program and quickly create your 3D logo from the vector line information.
This is especially important if I cant match the font. 3D applications see the outlines of the shapes and text which allow me to build a 3D model.
WHY NOT A JPG OR A PSD FILE?
A raster file is a pixel-based format. If your logo was designed in a pixel based program, eg: Photoshop, the 3D program cannot see the shapes.
MATCHING YOUR FONTS;
If I don't have the original vector artwork and your logo is made from a common font then I can recreate your 3D logo directly from the font.
All artowrk is the property of the client and I supply all versions.
*NO VECTOR OR FONTS AVAILABLE;
If I don't have the vector file OR I am unable to match the fonts or shapes, I have to recreate the vector file from scratch from your image file.
I have to import your raster artwork into my vector program and trace the contours, shapes and outlines. Often this takes several hours of work before you can build a 3D logo or model.
*There is an additional $25 charge for vector art recreation.
