I hired a logo designer - is vector a standard offering? myrrh
I hired someone to design a logo for my LLC. The finished product included jpgs whose largest size was 750 px wide at 200 dpi and gifs whose largest size was 580 px at 72 dpi. I was under the impression that vector graphics were standard in the industry in case I needed to use the images for print. I was billed US$250 and I wonder if this is reasonable considering no images were vector?
@ 300 DPI the largest version should be fine at 3.75 inches The jpgs are at 200 dpi - and the 3.75 inches should be fine for what usage? That sounds small for printing purposes. rocknbil
Sorry had my math wrong. :-) It's 2.5 inches. Yes they are 300 DPI, but 300 DPI is the average for up to 150 LPI (screen lines per inch in printing) screens. If you do the math (correctly :-) ), 750 pixels / 200 = 3.75 inches 750 pixels / 300 = 2.5 inches Adjust appropriately for cm. Even that can be "stretched." We used to use 250 DPI images for 150 LPI printing with no noticeable image decomposition. myrrh
Maybe I'm not understanding something, but wouldn't letterhead, flyers, and many other print media require more than 3.75"? rocknbil
I wouldn't think so, but you'd need larger than 2.5" for say, a report cover, billboards, TV ads. Harry
If he was giving you bitmap files, he should have sent something with PNG with a transparency around the logo and within the artwork if there are holes. JPG is completely unacceptable. A vector illustration from Illustrator is what should ultimately have been sent to you. We can't discuss prices, but you didn't pay much for your logo.
