In short sprites allow for countless images to be on one "sprite sheet" which saves bandwith and loading time. Since sprites are typically also not raster images but vector images they can be displayed at any size or any color using CSS.

Having said that they are considerably more complex to design and code. Fortunately there are free programs that do this for you. Or take png or gif images and transform them for you.
