BASIC GUIDELINES FOR SETTING UP ARTWORK
Pixels are individual blocks of unique colours placed together to
make up a raster image. Pixel-based images can come from a
digital camera, scanner, or downloaded from the internet.
Individual components of these images cannot be separated or
altered, and resolution diminishes when enlarged. While an
image may look fine distorted when the size is increased.
If an image is enlarged and it gets blurry or you can see the individual
blocks of colour, it is a raster image.
Raster images commonly have the file extensions: .bmp, .jpg,
.png or .tiff.
Nodes are the points in computer drawn lines that make up a
vector image. Lines can be curved or straight, and make any
shape that is desired. Node-based images are usually created in
a graphics program such as Adobe Illustrator & Corel Draw.
Individual components of these drawn images can be separated,
colours can be changed, and the size can be increased
with no loss of resolution.
A vector image can only be truly manipulated in a vector graphic
program. If you are given a file with a graphics program extension,
it must be checked to make sure it is true vector art. For example,
a bitmap can be saved as a graphic file, but when it is
opened it is not vector art, it’s still a bitmap inside the file.
Common examples of vector images have the file extensions
.eps, .ai, .cdr and .pdf.

Artwork is generally set up in a 2:1 size ratio. Small items like lapel pins are set up in a 3:1 ratio.
