I custom made a symbol in Adobe Illustrator and have exported it to BMP, PNG, and JPG and even at killer resolutions and 200MB the quality of the symbol is terrible and pixelated.  I even increased my Illustrator drawing to a very large size and tried that but it's not doing anything but make my drawing speed slow.  I found a property under Appearance for quality and this helped but it's still not crystal clear like the ESRI symbols.  

 

2 questions:

Does Appearance quality setting effect the symbol on the actual print?  What does it really do when I use Draft quality on the final product?

How do I get a stunning custom symbol? the resolution issue is killing my map!
