EPS files have a variety of uses for designing and printing graphics.
Though they’ve been overtaken by more modern file formats such as PDFs, EPS files still have a function as a legacy format compatible with almost all systems and software.
Many professional printers use EPS files for large-scale jobs. The backward compatibility feature of the file format makes it suitable for a wide range of printers — including those that may outdate more modern formats such as PDF. Computer-controlled engraving machines may also find EPS data simpler to render in detail.
The individual image data stored in vector files means EPS files retain resolution regardless of scale. That makes EPS ideal for expanded images, such as billboards and other large-scale marketing collateral.
