Raster vs. Vector
Raster files are images made up of pixels. The pixels are square bits of color that, when put together, form an image. Dots per inch (DPI) is how many pixels fit in an inch. At 300dpi, you'll have 300 pixels across an inch. a 1"x1" square at 300dpi is 300x300 pixels. If you increase the size of a raster image, you are making the pixels bigger not adding more pixels, causing a blurring or pixelated effect.
Vector files use coordinates to create shapes mathematically with lines and points. Because it uses mathematical calculations, you can increase the size without affecting the quality of the file.
Converting Text to outlines
In order to ensure that the text you used in your artwork doesn't change, make sure to outline your text. If you don't outline the text, it could be substituted or shifted by our system and delay production.
You can do this in Adobe Illustrator by selecting all of the text in your artwork, going to the top of the menus and selecting Type > Create Outlines. You can also press Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + O after selecting all of the text to save time.
