Term of the Week: Vector Image

The Term of the Week is a weekly feature where Printwear turns to industry experts to learn more about the terms used in the apparel and apparel decoration industry, including terminology within the business realm. Contact Printwear's digital content editor, Alexandria Arroyo, if you're interested in contributing and for an opportunity to be featured in our daily eNewsletter. 

A vector image is a design created in a drawing program and then saved as a vector file format. Vector files are based on mathematical equations rather than pixels. This means you can freely change any number of object attributes without destroying the basic object. An object can be modified not only by changing its attributes but also by shaping and transforming it as needed.
