Great question! First, let's compare apples to apples - please don't compare us to "free" online vector conversion websites. Why? These websites are not doing "hand" conversions by a professional artist. They spit out a vector file, yes, but the quality cannot be compared to hand converting. Also, what if you need changes? Different colors? Perhaps you need an outline file for engraving? These free online services fall short - very short. Let's talk about other services that offer hand conversion as we do - many of them use email only - you email them your file, they email back, you email back with changes, they email back...not very streamlined or effective.
