        If you save it as a jpeg in photoshop, it will not save the transparent background I'm afraid. Do you still have the source file in Photoshop? Even if not, you can bring that jpeg in Photoshop and eliminate the background then, and save as a GIF. Freehand should still recognize the transparent background.

            Maybe, maybe not. It really depends on the image...if it's solid color (like a cartoon image or something) then it should be fine, but photograph quality images may suffer. There might be a better format to use if you're sending to print, something to preserve the transparency. Is this for print or web?

                I thought this was like for a web banner or something or some sort of web graphic (though it's in Freehand, but I have heard of weirder), that's why I recommended GIF.

                Don't you have an illustrated EPS version of the logo? Without it, this could be problematic in terms of quality. Besides GIF, the only thing I can think of is making a very intricate clipping mask around the logo after you brought it into Freehand.

                  I would save it as a PNG, not a GIF, unless it's a solid-edged, solid color image. PNG has JPG-like continuous-tone compression, and has multiple levels of transparency, so you can have soft edges on the transparent edge.

                  *EDIT: Sorry, I missed the "logo" part. Hopefully, like Reuber says, you have an eps of it. What is the original format of the logo?

                        Is the logo multi-coloured? Pure line, or does it contain gradients, tints? What size are you reproducing it? Commercial printing, right?

                        The trouble with any colour raster (other than a bitmap, or black and white that's been recoloured) is that it will have to be shoved through a postscript halftone screen. That's where edge detail suffers the most.

                            Sorry, forgot about the translation gap.

                            Are the logos coloured 'solidly'. That is, how many unique colors are present in the design?

                                I quite like it to be honest, it's not too stuffed but it's clean, easy to remember! Well done Dan.

                                Do people still use QR codes?
                                Two phones ago I downloaded an app just to check that a client's QR code was linking properly when printed. 4 years later now, and that app has never been used again....
