RASTER vs VECTOR
RGB vs CMYK vs PMS

RASTER images (photographs, JPG, JPEG, BMP, PNG, GIF and TIFF) are pixel based images. Pixels are individual colors that comprise an entire image. When scaled, pixel images can look distorted. When designing in pixel based programs (i.e. Photoshop) please design the graphic to size so that no size adjustment is needed.

VECTOR images (logos, illustrations, AI, PDF and EPS) are images made by your program (i.e. Illustrator) mathematically defining points, lines and curves in your graphic. This allows the image to be scaled to any size and edited fairly easily.

RGB is projected against a screen using light. The use of Red, Green and Blue together produce the colors you see on your monitor. With the combination of light from the screen these colors appear bright and vibrant. Keep in mind that no two monitors are calibrated in exactly the same way. This means that an RGB color on one screen might look slightly different on another. RGB is best used for web and NOT print.
 

CMYK is the combination of Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black to produce printed color. CMYK colors are mixed during the printing process itself, which can sometimes cause very slight inconsistencies in color throughout a printing run. It’s usually not a particularly perceptible change, but it’s something to keep in mind when using logos with specific color branding. Note: the CMYK circle to the left is what the RGB color up-top looks like when printed.
 

PMS stands for Pantone Matching System, which is a universal color matching system used primarily in printing. Unlike RGB and CMYK, PMS colors are created with pre-mixed ink long before the image is actually produced, resulting in the most consistent color possible. PMS colors should be used when you need a specific color to be printed.
