Vector artwork is made on the computer and can be scaled to any size without losing quality. That is because a vector is a mathematical curve or line renders the same quality at any size. Raster or bitmap artwork is a fixed size work like a physical photograph. When you change the size of a raster image you will lose quality if its too small or become fuzzy when made bigger.
