Most decals can be made in any color you want. Click the image above for information on how to choose a color.
|This is the original full size image. The images below are zoomed in on the lower center part of the image.|
|This is a VECTOR file zoomed in close. As you can see the edges are smooth. The edge will stay smooth no matter how much you zoom in. Therefor, if you take a vector file and make it really large, it will still look perfect up close.|
The image above shows a jpeg of the same file. You can see that the edges are not near as smooth when zoomed in as with the vector file. Therefor when you take a jpeg (or any raster style image) and make it into a large decal, the edges won't be smooth when viewed up close.
It should be obvious that if you have a vector file available that is what should be used. Using a vector file also gives the software a "cut line" so the decal can be cut right up against that smooth line. Vector files normally allow us to easily make changes in which normally can't be done in an image based file. So with vector art we can easily make changes to the colors, change sizing or layout of the design or simply change lettering.
Image files can normally still be used too. There are going to be limitations to how large the image can be made and still look good. Some images can be converted into vector art (required if the decal is to be die-cut). There may be a set up charge involved depending on how complex the design is or how the quality is on the image.
Most decals on FastDecals.com are created from vector files but occasionally images are used when they are of good enough quality to be made into large decals.
Here is a good way to test how large you can go converting an image into a decal.
Vectorization can be done in Adobe Illustrator and several other programs. Most vector files will be saved as .ai, .eps, .svg or .pdf though they won't always be vector files if saved with those extensions. Looking for a free vector program that you can edit vector files yourself? Try InkScape. Also Open Office can create vector files too using the "Draw" software.
If you aren't seeing what you want we have an account with Stock Photo Secrets to help create your custom decal. There is no charge to you for us to use a file from their site. We can normally even modify an existing design if you want the colors changed or modified in some other way (some limitations apply). Simply start browsing their site and let us know the "Image Id" you want to use along with details of any changes you want made. You can contact us for custom decal work using the custom decal form.
