You've lost me too. What on earth does this mean? If I was a customer, I'd call another sign shop if I got this load of **** ......and then tell all my friends you're some kind of a nut bar.2. a JPG in a PDF:
This is my favorite. I explain to the customer that the PDF they have given me is like a soccer taco... "the image inside your pdf started out as a soccerball. You have wrapped it in a taco shell (saving as a PDF). Just because your soccerball is wrapped in a taco shell doesnt make it a taco. At no point does saving your soccerball as a PDF make it into usable beef... I still need you to send me a taco..."
and thus the soccer taco was born... at my last shop a "soccer taco" was a recognized term for any unusable pdf logo
IT'S A SOCCER TACO!
Simple, a bitmap is what ends up on earth once it leaves the planet Vector. Because it takes on average, four light years to travel through space. In the course of that time, space radiation distorts and degrades the original image and it can't easily be restored once it enters our atmosphere.
By the time it does reenter our atmosphere, everything is melted together into small fragmented shards called pixels which shrink from the images original size. Anytime you try to enlarge these pixel based images, the quality has degraded to such a point, that they become useless and are very difficult to rebuild. In order to have higher quality scalable art, you should pay an additional premium and have your art sent in a radiation proof beryllium capsule which can withstand the hazards of space travel. This is the only sure way to ensure good clean art.
