For high-quality printing, you need to save your logo file in one of the vector formats, e.g. EPS. However, if your logo is saved in a different format, don’t worry. You can easily convert it to EPS. Bear with us!
About EPS and how it’s used
EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) is a vector graphic format that was created by Adobe Systems. If you need your graphic file to work across different operating systems and programs, EPS is your choice. An EPS image will render equally good on any media, whether it’s Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw, Windows or iOS. Beyond that, EPS enables you you can scale your file without compromising its quality.
If you’re designing a logo, be sure to save in the EPS format, and this is why:
- If you need to print your logo on T-shirts, calendars or billboards, EPS is a way to go. When printed, EPS images result crispy and sharp. This is why professional print shops prefer to work with this format.
- If you have a team of designers working on the same graphic file, choose EPS. Due to its versatility, EPS is supported by all major graphic editors.

To wrap up this brief guide, here is a smart tip. If you’re going to print your EPS image on clothes, plastic items, and similar media, avoid using visual effects, such as shadows, gradients, opacity, etc. Otherwise, you may have trouble converting and printing your image.
