Sorry, maybe I didn't explain myself well, I'm not trying and he is not
suggesting that I capture to a vector format. I meant to say that I
have Vector art that I had converted to GIF for the docs AND I have
screen captures that I have saved as GIF.

I've been trying to think of some way to say politely what really needs
to be said to improve your boss' understanding of graphics formats.

Screens are a bitmap, and thus screen captures are bitmap or "raster"
graphics files. Screens are not generated via vector graphics, and thus
cannot be captured as vectors.

Raster-to-vector conversion would be severely limited in creating any
sort of realistic-looking image.

PNG is a bitmap format, but be sure that your printer is prepared to
handle them adequately.
