Saving a 1-bit black & white graphic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


I'm mostly a newbie to vector editing, so I hope someone can point me in the right direction.


I've created a black and white vector graphic using Affinity Designer. The graphic will be incorporated into a printed book, and the printer needs it as a 600dpi 1-bit black and white file — I think a vector format is preferred.


My document resolution is already 600dpi, so that's covered, but I'm struggling to work out how to use Affinity's export options to save out my graphic as 1-bit. Any ideas?

Hi Gabi,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

I'm sorry but currently there's no support for 1bit B&W images in Affinity.

Any update on support for 1-bit B&W? This would be useful for lots of things.

I would like to add my voice to the requests for 1-bit support. I run the design / pre-press department of a printing company. We do spot-color offset and letterpress. I absolutely need 1-bit support for our workflow. Please, folks! This is a very important part of print production!
