ABOUT US

Viking Arts is full service graphics company specializing in converting raster images into scalable, cuttable vector art. We provide high-quality hand drawn vector images for prices usually ranging from $5 to $25 per image. The process is painless. You send us the raster image and we send back the recreated vector (in it’s smooth, meticulous beauty) the following day. It’s a time saver… sometimes a life saver… it’s just like having a graphics team at your fingertips. You can take on more work, be more productive, and save more time and money.

Our goal and mission is to provide great value for money and great customer service.

We service hundreds of graphic and sign professionals every single day. Although we do work for many different industries, the sign industry continues to be our fastest grower and largest client base. Our artwork is created by hand to make producing vinyl signs easy. There are as few points as possible, no overlapping cut lines, and the files easily import into any major software.

We look forward to hearing from you.

FAQs:

1. What is vector art?

Good question! How can we utilize something to its fullest if we’re not really sure what that something is. So. Let’s discuss. We’ll be brief because this can be complicated if you let it.

A vector image is one of the two major graphic types (the other being bitmap). Vector graphics are made up of many individual objects. Each of these objects can be defined by mathematical statements and has individual properties assigned to it such as color, fill, and outline. Vector graphics are resolution independent because they can be output to the highest quality at any scale.

2. What is the turnaround time?

You can’t rush a great artist, you know. As they say “Rome wasn’t built in a day”. But, when it comes to us getting you the scalable, usable vector artwork you need… somehow we pull through! The turn around time here is one business day… or about 24 hours. If you give us an image on Tuesday afternoon around 1 pm, you’ll probably have it in your in box before noon on Wednesday.

3. Can you vector a Photograph of my dog/grandma/pizza?

Unfortunately, no. Viking Arts is all about converting raster images to vector, but we leave the design work to the graphic designers. We’re more of an “apples come in, apples go out” kind of service. That is to say, we don’t offer Illustration work or graphic design. We just trace what we see without taking any artistic liberties.

4. Do you offer spot colors or PMS colors?

When we’re recreating the image, we simply use the color picker in Adobe Illustrator. Since we do work for companies in all different manners of business, this is the easiest way. Our main goal is to take care of the tedious job of recreating the logo. Once you receive the image back, you can easily change the colors to suit your specific needs.

5. What if I find a mistake in the file or need a corrections?

Not a problem. Please check the files thoroughly when you receive them and if you find any inconsistencies or mistakes, call 717-666-3896 or email us right away so we can take care of the problem. We’ll be sure to make the corrections quickly and get the file back to you as fast as possible. Do you have a question that’s not listed? Please let us know what it is and we’ll be happy to get back to you.
