Italian term or phrase: nastrino porta moschettone
This sentence appears in a description of how to produce cliparts:

*Dividiamo il lavoro in quattro distinte fasi. Nella prima, realizzeremo i tracciati vettoriali del nastrino porta moschettone*

I would very much appreciate clarification - also of *tracciati vettoriali*

Explanation:
"nastrino porta moschettone" is that cord which is now rather fashionable, you hang it around your neck and it ends with a moschettone/clip to which a cell phone, keys or conference pass is attached - pass on the English term, but that's what it describes. It's usually printed with a company logo, football team colors or similar.

tracciati vettoriali are "vector paths" - in graphics applications (Illustrator, Photoshop, CorelDraw, FreeHand, etc.), a drawing can either be in bitmap format (just made up of pixels, like a photograp); or in vector format, as "paths" that can be easily edited and manipulated (usually the case for logos and illustrations). The advantage of vector paths is that you can easily change their shape and apply different fills (riempimenti) and strokes (tracce or contorni) to change the final result

Here I expect they are explaining how to design the logo that will be printed on the "cord" above.
