2D vs 3D
Two-Dimensional - Two-dimensional images have multiple level surfaces, separating the different levels in your art through a layering technique that results in raised and recessed areas. This 2D effect is great for clean, simple designs, for logo patches with multiple shades of vibrant color, and where the raised and recessed ridges work positively with the overall aesthetic of your creation.
3 Dimensional - Like two-dimensional creations, three-dimensional art has multiple leveled surfaces and accommodates a wide variety of styles. But unlike 2D, our 3D images are rounded, with varying colors that are capable of being on the same plane. The raises and recessions are not rigid, and the elements within your artwork can take on more life-like characteristics. Examples include facial details and landscapes, but working with one of our designers to decide the optimal effect will make this choice easy.
