Raster vs. Vector: What Does It All Mean?

Raster images are created by a grid of pixels with each holding specific color, like a photograph or scan. They are resolution dependent, meaning if you create a raster image at a smaller size but order a larger sticker, you will see the individual pixels which will make the image appear pixelated and therefore, lose quality.

Vector images are created digitally using points and paths made by mathematical equations. This makes them infinitely scaleable and not resolution-dependent. They can be scaled up or down without losing image quality.
