    custom drawn!

    I suggest you snag the jpg off the net... rotate & distort a little to get it more lined up on the page & then try half a dozen fonts with a number 8 forced waaayy wider then it was designed... I would bet you could find one that gets you over halfway there & adding a line, deleting a few nodes... Done! (if you are pretty good with digitizing... skip the 8 & just draw the whole thing)

    If you hoped for some other letters... I'd tell the client they don't exist.

    had 5 minutes waiting for my last print of the night to finished up so I can go home... got the B done for you & now my print is done too...

    I'll show you a jpg, but I'll see what happens when I try to attach an .eps file also.

    Ok, can't iupload the .eps file the way I attach a .jpg, but I "zipped" it up & uploaded it to my server... so click HERE and it will start downloading from my site.

    (ou know how to "extract a file from a zip file right? It's easy if your using Windows XP, or if you have WinZip)

    If you now have an eps file you should be able to change the color yourself. You may have to ungroup it first.

    Renfro,

    FYI, i am NOT in the business of sign making. I am a paramedic that uses my cutter to make small decals for sports teams. If you look at the numbers of posts I have, you can tell i am a 100% newbie, hence the reason I signed up at SIGNS 101. I may be the oddball here, but this is not a source of income for me, instead I usually donate my time so that the younger kids can make money to help their teams. Dont worry though, in given time, I will learn the process of using Corel and AI...If you want to berate me for being a newbie, go ahead, but if I remember right we were all newbies at one time...Thanks for your help
