    are they all even and even when divided by 2, and 72 dpi? Also if your using R.I. they need to be even when divided by 4 as well

    R.I. meaning Resolution Independence?

    im not using resolution independance and in illustrator i put them so they will be even when divided by 2 and they are 72 dpi. even when i zoom out in illustrator and i havent exported them yet it looks pixely. i dont know why because when i have the image fullscreen in illustrator it looks fine but if i zoom out to 100 percent it looks pixely. how can i make the image look better?

    edit: maybe it is because my character has a border around it. should i remove that or would it not make any difference?

    edit again: heres a view of the character incase ur wondering:

    If you want, send me the Illustrator file and i can take a look (i've been in printing 20+ years and use AI daily). I just finished an 4 foot x 8 foot sign, the graphics have a stroke (border) around it and it is NOT pixely.
