PDF Background Tips
I will use this page to describe some solutions to problems that may occur
when you work with backgrounds in your PDF files.
Your background PDF can consist of two types of information.
- Bitmap graphics.
- Vector graphics.
Bitmap graphics does not scale very well. Vector graphics on the other
hand, scales very well. The best results when printing on a background
PDF are produced when the background PDF is based on vectors.
If you just make a scan of an existing paper with a letterhead,
then you get a large bitmap instead of a vector based background.
Typically, the best background PDF documents are created by your
professional designer if you ask them to produce a PDF with your
letterhead where both text and graphics are based on vectors.
