    Default Digitizing / vectorizing from scanned pictures

    Can anybody point me out, individuals or companies, who would offer digitizing / vectorizing?
    I need to convert letterpress printed poster into vector file.
    I could scan myself somewhere and send file by email.
    Would it be possible?
    Would it be possible to have natural distressed look from letterpress printing?

    make it true black/white in photoshop as high DPI as possible.

    save as tiff/psd/whatever, place into illustrator file.

    heres my live trace secret recipe (use these settings) :


    hit expand. Thats as close as you will get to "clean" b/w in illustrator.
