    Since this is in the "Web Design" forum, are we talking about an online catalog or print?

    i have a new client who wants foiled business cards (for their logo). they told me the price they got from their old GD was 13 cents per card @ 10k, but that is about the best price i can get before markup....

    I see. I guess I was too worried that if I used a thicker type face, it will compete with the name too much. I could definitely try though....

    Nice lion.

    I think the color one has just a little too much going on--too much of the extra shadowing and the off register shapes and the highlight around the dark outline make it blurry....

  • How can you sharpen the edges of a vector drawn in corel draw?

    When I use corel draw and make my vector which is basically a square filled with a color and when I export it, the edges are all grainy and the graphic is so small and terrible quality it won't be good for what I want to use it for...using it on a website for formating the design.

    Any suggestions because when I was back in high school it was not this difficult to figure out and everything looked a lot better.

    Thanks!

    What format are you exporting it in? If it were still a vector it wouldn't be "grainy". Sounds like a file type problem.

    And what program are you then trying to use it in?

    You might also try this free open source alternative to Adobe Illustrator.

    Good Luck!

      Corel Draw should be just as capable as Illustrator, I don't think that it's a problem that would be solved by using inkscape.

      How are you saving/exporting the file? What are your settings?

        I am exporting it as a JPEG and GIF and it is not exactly grainy but rough around the edges. That better describes the problem that I am having. It looks like "pixels" on the edges instead of a smooth image.

        I just export with the normal settings...I don't change anything.

          Thats why. Your converting a vector image to raster and blowing it up, of course it will be blurry/grainy/jagged.

          Export as a vector EPS.

            If it's going on a website, most likely you'll end up needing raster art (GIF or JPG). That is, unless you have a need for it to be a flash object.

            Can you post up the GIF and/or JPG to the forum?

              More than likely an export settings problem.

              Always make your image the same size as the end result you want. This helps the program to not make it fuzzy when exporting becuase it doesn't have to convert pixels.

              Export as JPG
              Set resolution to 72
              RBG color mode

              Check Anti-alias
              Check maintain aspect ratio

              like this.

                    I had a similar problem when trying to save for web from Illustrator about a year ago... couldn't for the life of me figure out what the problem was.

                    Have you tried trashing your preferences, or uninstalling and reinstalling the program? That's what it ultimately took for me.
