I'll jump on this one ... with the caveat that my knowledge is from the Middle
Check "Resubmission". If you select "New" they will expect a payment. A
resubmission made within one year is free. The "Change" option is used if you
are submitting additional armory and either want to discard a previous device
or change that device to a badge.
If your previous submission was rejected at the Kingdom level, check "Kingdom"
under Resubmission. If it was rejected by Laurel, check "Laurel".
There is, from what I have heard, a dislike of computer printed graphics on
submissions. At least some of this is because common computer inks tend to
fade or discolor rather quickly. The Middle Kingdom Pursuivant's Handbook
lists Crayola Classic Color Markers as the "officially-sanctioned SCA heraldic
