    I've got the logo for my business in a really low resolution format. I've seen some offers from guys (gals) here to help out with putting one together. Will anyone here take my logo and re-do it so that I can actually use it for letterhead etc?

    Did you get the image of the canoe? That is the logo that I wanted - I just need it re-created in high resolution so it looks like smooth lines instead of a bunch of dots.:confused:

    that is why true, graphic designers, use , freehand, illustrator... to creat logos... they creat vector art.... most amatures try and do everything in photo shop, raster art.... the file has to be created at the proper resolution in the first place, or it must be totally redone....

    take what you have to a professional and have it recreated....

    The area is historically known for being a major route from and to the great lakes northward. Hense the canoe.

    If you can re-create the image from scratch in Illustrator or Adobe so that it looks cleaner I'd greatly appreciate it.

    all I did was convert it to 300 dpi... and emailed it to you.
    if you want me to recreate it in Illustrator... I could do that also...
    any particular size??? 1",2", 3" ??? With or w/o lettering?
