  • Here's my logo, get it to work!

    After many stressful hours of trying to get through to customers, and realizing others here have the same problem, about vector and raster art needs I decided to create a blog outlining the basics of it all.

    http://graphictablet.blogspot.com/

    Feel free to let me know if things need to be added or clarified.

    Thanks.
    Thanks,

    Your article defnitely explains it for me but god almighty you have to change that yellow color for the background it was killing me.
    How about a chain pickerel in your bath tub?

      Yeah, that whole blog look is a work in progress. I have had that thing up for a few months now and have done nothing with it beyond just fiddling with it. Now that I have something up to read I gotta change it. sorry about the eyes.

            oh...wanted to ask this...you intimated in your article the need for vector for offset, not so much for digital...but i'm thinking if i pull that first logo example off the web and ask you to print it digitally at that size, it's not going to look good either because of the difference in quality...300dpi vs 72dpi...this matters as well, yes?...just thoughts...

              True, I failed to think about the dpi issue when I was writing the blog. Yes, even if you are printing digitally, if the dpi is below 300 you will get degradation. Thanks for pointing that out. I may have to add that in there as a disclaimer of sorts and flag that topic for a later article as well.

                    Ok, I addressed the dpi issue in the blog article. Let me know if I can add anything else to make it better.

                      300dpi - or greater!!!
                      If I'm using a raster logo to digitally print a building sign it better be at least 150dpi at FINAL SIZE.
                      Which means you take your 4" wide 300dpi raster letterhead logo and make it 1800dpi for a 4' sign - but make sure you do it when it's created because you can't interpolate 300 to 1800 in photoshop and expect it to print any cleaner.

                      We won't even discuss die-cut vinyl signage...

                      You need to rethink that whole digital print paragraph or remove it. Sorry. Logos should be vector no matter what format they are printed in.

                      Designers always forget the sign guys <whimper, sniff>

                        Sorry PD.
                        I try not to forget the sign guys, if it makes you feel better.

                        Anyway - I have bookmarked your site and will probably make use of it within the week as I get bombarded with this nearly every day "just take it off my website."

                        Um, sure, honey, that will make your logo all of 1/4" tall, and still crappy quality. (bangs head)
                        it's deadline and I'm GROUCHY.

                          Hehe. I feel your pain, I feel your pain. That was one of the reasons I wrote it was so that anyone could point there customers to the blog and say, "This, THIS is why your logo won't work!" Glad it will be of some use.

                                It's being printed with an inkjet so it will use multiple colors of ink to arrive at the PMS color (or as close as possible).

                                But specifying it as a PMS color will give the printer a target...

                                Thanks Ratkins, that's a good point. I have never been instructed to create a white ink and I only ever use Paper, I guess for some reason I was thinking of Paper as overprinting, when of course it knocks...
