Re: printing vector images
23dornot23d, thank you for responding. This was done by a professional printer (a book through Amazon's CreateSpace), so I cannot specifically answer your question. I did have to submit both B&W and color images at 300 dpi. I don't know that much about Inkscape or vector images to know whether the problem was caused by something I did or something else. Perhaps I should ask at the CS forum as well (although most folks there use Adobe products). Maybe the Inkscape forum too (I'm assuming they have a forum).
