    Did not realise I could zoom in on your image!

    To be honest, that looks like a digital print - not a litho print.

    Which explains the dodgy pattern and the lack of a solid black.

    Have you got a loupe to check for halftones?

          So the printer just got back to me and admit it was a mistake on his end

          he said they had clearly had a problem when they saved it to pdf

            Make them send you 10lbs of bacon as compensation.

              I don't see any dots in the black type, but it does appear the Black in the logo is deeper - and it really does not appear to be printed offset.

              As for the logo, I think Hank hit it, looks like they failed to update the link and printed a low res version. How close is the printer to you... maybe you will want to make a trip over and ask him to see the file he used, if they updated it and saved it it will have the date/time of the update. Show him the sample and ask if they think they would pay for it. All printers have samples on the walls, compare yours to those.
              If they say it is offset, ask to see the plates, or have them rereip the file and look at it in the preview of the rip.

              EDIT - just seen updates from you, glad they admitted problem and eased your head. Now they deserve other work from you.

                That's definitely not an offset job.

                May want to request a press proof before they print it the next time (or even if you take it somewhere else to print it).

                  This is much cleaner than the other one.

                  I don't think it is obvious from this logo who is your target audience? Is it luxury travellers? Retirees? Youth? Honeymooners?

                  Hello,

                  I have a quite tricky problem. My boss some time ago edited a painting which should be in our hotel (it should look like the one on the wall) and he didn't save the file. I have enclosed...
