Vector Tracing a Logo in Illustrator

Description

Many people ask us what we do exactly when we trace a logo and convert it to a vector format for large-scale printing, engraving or stitching. Essentially we have to create a co-ordinate version or (vector version) of the logo by tracing the existing logo in a program like Adobe Illustrator. It can be a laborious task, but we've speeded this one up so you can view our process. Tracing this logo would have been much quicker if the logo used was a font which could be downloaded, unfortunately this was not the case as much of the trace was re-creating the font on the original provided JPG image. If you already have a bitmap logo (.jpg/.bmp/.tif/.png) and would like to have your artwork converted to a vector format, please enquire on our website for a quote.
