I’m creating text and putting them on watch dials. I’d like to create a small graphics logo for my small company and put that on some of my watch dials.
My questions are:
What would be the best graphics file type to do this? .png, .jpg, ???
The area available on my dial is about 0.75 inches wide by 0.50 inches high. My HP color laser printer has a resolution I can set for printing of 2400. In my graphics program what resolution should I be using? 2400? or some other value?
What graphics style should I be using? Raster or Vector?
So far I’ve had no luck creating an image that larger than the space available and then trying to resize it down. I thought it would be easier to work in a larger size and then shrink it down. The quality is terrible.
I created a simple test graphics which was a filled in circle. But the edges were pixelated and jagged. I’m sure it was because I didn’t have the right settings set up.
Thank you for any help and advice.
