FAQ

Do I need a vector graphic?

First, what is a vector graphic? A vector graphic is a type of computer graphic that is infinitely scalable because the colors and the outlines of every letter or shape is defined by a line that is plotted on an x y coordinate system.  this is very different from a PNG or JPG file that when you double triple or quadruple the size of the file it starts to lose its quality and it becomes what is called pixelated a vector graphic is better for us to use because depending on the size and shape of where the sign from go we are able to scale the design so that it fits that location it's a lot more difficult to change an Altura logo when it isn't in a vector format.

So back to the question of do you need a vector graphic and the answer is no. The cost of your sign is a combination of the cost of the material, cut path, layers, and also number of colors and we can do this without a completed Vector graphic.  When we move to production we professionally trace your design so that we ensure all of the points and overlaps and Designs are perfect and not skewed in any way.  

Should I use Metal or another material?

There are numerous options for ways to make a sign but the most durable and highest quality option is going to be a metal sign. When compared to signs made with printed graphics, vinyls, MDF, plastics or woods; metal signs are stronger, more durable, more precise Some of the other most common options are vinyl printed graphics and banners or even hand-painted, but what's going to look the best is a metal sign
