Something you should know about clipart for computer sign/POP making or
other commercial oriented applications.
Many people ask us "Why should I buy clipart from the Mad Dog selection
instead of the clipart available with desktop publishing programs, such as
CorelDRAW?" and "Your clipart packages cost more than the packages I can buy
off the shelf at Comp USA, Circuit City or my local computer store!" Read
on, there are good reasons to buy "CNC ready" clipart!
The "CNC/Vinyl Ready" clipart will cost you more, but there is a reason for
that. Clipart designed primarily for printing and desktop publishing, such
as the CorelDraw clipart, contains many overlapping lines, open shapes,
excessive control points and nodes. Many of their shapes and objects are
created by overlapping different layers of objects to create the final
image. see sample
True "CNC Ready" clipart created by our professional artist contains
no overlapping lines, open objects, or
excessive control points which will send your cutter into a tailspin! All
"CNC Ready" clipart images are 100% vector images. These images can be
edited to change the design to suit your needs, add colors, etc. Vector
images are scaleable, up or down, with no loss of design quality.
Value of Clipart
Although many customers want to have their signage or artwork as inexpensive
as possible, quality clipart such as our clipart created by professional
artists will "up sell" your jobs without really incurring any extra work. By
showing a customer a sample of their original idea and then showing another
sample with some professional clipart on it, the customer will usually
convince themselves that the sample with the professional clipart, although
it does cost more, looks much better!
By having ready to use clipart available, you can easily use it on the spot
without having to scan or digitize the art. Being able to offer clipart as
an "impulse item" will increase your profits and profitability! In addition
to offering the clipart to your customers, by having
samples of professional
clipart and corporate logos displayed in your showroom you create instant
recognition and credibility with old and new customers alike.
Remember, your customer does not necessarily know (or have to know) that
you're using ready-made clipart!
