Digitize logo

You have drawn a logo yourself (or you already have the logo, but it is not yet digital). Now you want to digitize the logo. How does that work? Here you can find the answer.

Digitize drawn logo

1. Take a photo or scan the logo

Important with a photo:

  • Take the photo straight from the top.

Important when scanning:

  • Set the DPI value of the scanner as high as possible. This should be at least 300 DPI.

2. Digitize your own logo

The best way to digitize your own logo is to convert it to a vector file. This is a digital file that can be enlarged and reduced in size without loss of sharpness.

To digitalize your own logo you can best use Adobe Illustrator. Buy the program and open the logo. Pull the logo over by hand. This means that you trace every shape in the logo and fill it with a color. Watch the animation below for a simple explanation.

  • The result is excellent (we also use Illustrator).
  • You can customize the logo.
  • You can save the logo in the three most common vector file formats: AI, EPS and PDF.


  • It takes (a lot of) time to draw a logo.
  • You first have to learn to work with Illustrator before you can digitize a logo.
  • Adobe Illustrator costs money.
