    I have a store that is wanting their logo on their door in vinyl. They gave me a .jpg of their logo, but I am really having a hard time tracing it and getting it to be smooth. I am using Corel Draw X3. Should I ask the customer to see if he can give me the logo as an .eps file? What do you usually do?:help:

    Ask for it as an eps with outlines or convert it to vector, what does it look like?
    Can you post it?

    Sounds like you're cutting, not printing. If they have an eps or ai ,get it. Or charge them more for converting it for them. If it is simple you may not have a problem.

    here's the logo

    Actually, all they are wanting on the door is the name. It looks like it should be simple to do, but I'm just learning corel draw, and I haven't quite figured it out yet.

    Easier and better to just redraw the whole works.
