Vinyl lettering is a versatile and popular way to add custom designs to a range of surfaces. However, creating vinyl lettering requires specific file formats to ensure the best quality results.
The most commonly accepted file formats for vinyl lettering are vector graphics, including .ai (Adobe Illustrator), .eps (Encapsulated PostScript), and .svg (Scalable Vector Graphics). These file types allow for easy scalability, meaning that the graphics can be resized without losing quality or becoming pixelated.
If you don't have access to professional design software, there are free and low-cost alternatives that can help you create and export vector graphics. Some popular options include Inkscape and Sketch, which can open and edit .ai and .eps files, and export to .svg format.
