Hey all,

I'm JUST starting out with this whole .eps thing and I really don't know what I'm doing.... Anyhow, I  work at a high school in Halton which didn't have a logo or even a mascot.  So I made one and people seem to like it.  However, we don't have any posters, or anything BIG with the logo on it.  Could someone turn this into an eps for me so we could blow it up?

I made it in a program called "The Logo Creator"

Thanks!!

Hello,
 
On thelogocreator website, it tells you how to save it for a larger size.  It is still a bitmap file, but TIF files print nicely.  You can't layer vinyl with TIF's or print in spot colors, but you can inkjet or process color print them. 
 
I noticed that it will save to a PDF file, which can be vector, but I would guess that it is still a bitmap file within the PDF.
 
Secondly, on the site it shows another company that will convert it to a EPS or AI file for $59.00.  The site is probably owned by someone that works for the company and can convert that type of file into a EPS or AI with their software.  Or it is a site that has someone that will hand trace in Illustrator or whatever software and make it into a EPS or AI file.  An experienced logo tracer doing it right, and if he had the fonts, could hand trace the logo in about 1 to 2 hours.
 
Some artist use their favorite rastor to vector software to convert it into a vector.   On something as complexed as your logo, it usually turns out with less than desired results.   However, if you can create a large TIF file, someone on this site might give it a try.
 
 
BTW, it is a cool logo and nice work!

Hey Vic,

Thanks for the advice!! Funny... it took me forever to make that logo and you improved on it in minutes!! - cool!  Actually parts of it were from the Logo Creator and other parts were just done in photoshop elements. 

You seem to really have a handle on this stuff...could you go to the "work in progress" section and take a look at another logo I posted in there?  I made it for my cottage.  Anything you could do with that would be appreciated. 

My problem is I have the artistic idea and the ability to put it on paper but the technology is holding me back.

So, I should convert the Bearcat logo to a Tiff file and repost it... I don't want anyone really taking a lot of time on it.  I actually thought it was a quick type conversion thing.  I didn't know you have to trace it all out... wow.

Hey,
 
Sorry for the delay; been away for a few days.
 
I think you have a good logo going and I would finish it up right.  I would suggest selecting 3 or 4 colors and having it converted to a vector.  I would have the school pay for that part.  Then you will have the official file and you can break it down to just the head, the word art and still have the full logo.  After that, you will probably be suprised of how many departments that will come to you and want to use the logo for t-shirts, caps, stickers and all kinds of promotional items. 
 
The Tiff file is an okay idea and would certainly work for now.  But it is like the name of this web site and vectors rule.
 
 
Your cabin design is cool too.  I do agree with all the suggestions about it.  I would certainly fix the lettering on the curve to make it flow better and maybe a hair larger for the main text?? 
 
I think it is more important to have the artistic ideas and you can always find someone that can handle the technology side.  The ideas part it what is hard and you're fortunate to have that!
 
Thanks,
 
Vic
