    Vector vs. Bitmap

    Vector Images - Used for Spot Color
    Vector graphics (or line art) are a resolution-independent, scalable format composed of individual objects made up of mathematical calculations. In other words Vector images can be resized easily without loss of quality making them an ideal format for initial design of logos and illustrations that to be used at multiple sizes. When resizing, the edges of the artwork will remain smooth and crisp. With Vector you are able to print different elements in different spot colors. See the detailed example to the right.

    Bitmap Images - Used for Process Color
    Bitmap (or raster images) are a type of graphic composed of pixels (picture element) in a grid. Each pixel or "bit" contains color information for the image. Bitmap graphics formats have a fixed resolution which means that resizing a bitmap graphic can result in distortion and jagged edges otherwise known as stair casing. See the detailed example to the right.
