Post Re-Size Png / Jpeg Logos

Hi, this is my first post on this forum, so i am hoping this in the correct thread.


I have a clothing brand in the UK and usually have my clothing screen printed by third party companies. But I have just purchased a Heat Press machine as want to do different styles etc.


The problem I have is, I have various versions of my logo in PNG, JPEG formats and not being an expert with all this type of stuff, I dont know how I increase the size of the png/jpeg files to the size I want to print ?



Any ideas would be massively appreciated.


Spencer

What graphics editor do you have? Photoshop or equivalent is preferable. You can download free Photoshop look alike which is called Gimp from https://www.gimp.org. Resize the image , save it then print or print directly without saving. There will be pixelation issue if the original image is low resolution when enlarge. Typically around 250 and up is preferable.

Pixellation is a big problem when enlarging bitmap images.

Photoshop does a reasonable job but is nowhere near as good as the AI software at Let's Enhance! - https://letsenhance.io

I use this site for all my enlargements.

Quick question if you dont mind? I have various versions of my logo. If i get a vector version, do i need one master vector file & then i can play around with it and add different designs to the logo or would i need all of the different logos i have in png format changed to vector files ?


Thanks

Before getting too involved with vector design software give this a try ...


Upload your logos to Vector Magic - https://vectormagic.com/


This is an easy way to convert bitmap images into scaleable vector images. The free, online version has a few limitations compared to the full, desktop paid-for version, such as being unable to handle very large images or transparency, but is suitable for 90% of most people's requirements.


Once you have your images in a vector format (ai, svg, etc) you can scale them to any size without loss of quality. No pixelation or jagged edges.

ok, now it makes sense.... When I was designing logos for customers vector was a must, pdf,png,jpg were just extra.


Fiver guys take a picture from net and slap some text on it and here you go, you have a logo

if you pay a guy for a logo you should always get a vector file.

Default Re: Re-Size Png / Jpeg Logos

here is an example.
Guy send me his sketch about idea he has:



He got from me Vector file - Ai + pdf file + png + jpg mockup + notes about fonts + (fonts). Usually fonts are not send, customer needs to buy them.How much time I spend on this? One morning coffee, while I was texting with a guy about his logo. So basically I was vectorizing while we texted.


Here is jpg mockup and png







But bear in mind it all depends. This was done for a friend. I remember few customers from years ago, I would rather shoot my self then work again with them...

I forgot to answer on this one...


You always go from vector. So in example:


You open photoshop, you import vector in it, and then you add effects on that vector. When you save your file in photoshop you can save it as png, jpg and so on. But that file wouldn't be good for upsizing - google ''interpolation''.


So you need to plan in advance what would be the max size.


While if you work only on vector(in vector based software) you can upsize how much you wanna and you will not lose on quality of graphics.


Sooooo, you need vector so you are not limited with size. And then when you have a project for example poster, you use that vector and add effects and other stuff in other program(photoshop,gimp whatever), cause you already set the max size in that program.


Clear enough or did I complicated things a little?
