In order to switch from raster tiles basemaps to vector tiles basemaps within our custom web apps and ArcGIS online, printing for vector tiles has to be supported on ArcGIS for Server.
Vector Basemaps are awesome! - unfortunately they cannot be printed with our WAB print service widget. My customers request printed maps for their reports, and without being able to print the vector basemaps... I cannot print beautiful maps
As of the June 2017 update this should be possible.
Based on the following proceedings (UC2017), "The print service does not support vector tiles at this time. We have development plans to support vector tiles in the print service at a future release."
Katie Cullen, would you have more details about the roadmap?
The print service now supports vector tiles, since September update I think
