Any image that we have on a computer or cell phone consists of dots and pixels. It does not have structure basically. Since it stands over film grains it pixelates whenever we try to print it on a large scale.
Solution: A quick Photoshop working on it called ‘vectorizing’ converts them into a structured format and enables an image to print with perfect quality.
The basic file format for screen printing vector is Ai (Stands for Adobe Illustrator), EPS, DXF, or SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics). That is the outcome of any jpeg image that is consisting of different shapes, curves, triangles, etc. This process is called converting raster images into vectors.
