Should I hire you to replicate my monogram in higher resolution (and maybe do it more perfectly)?
I can convert it to a photoshop image once you send it to me. I don't know this for sure, but I really think publisher images would be high res. The program is designed for printing things. Powerpoint just lets you get up to 150dpi. It's really not bad though. I've used my powerpoint logo on lots of things (STDs, brochures) and couldn't tell a difference. But, I didn't print it huge.

I think a way to get around this is to make it 2x size in powerpoint. I'm still learning all this resolution stuff.

300 dpi in the size you are printing is ideal. Say you want a 4x6 image. You either need something that is 4x6 at 300dpi, or something that is 8x12 at 150 dpi.

So, I don't have powerpoint... and I really need a logo or monogram. If someone has some bored down time (ha! I know that is silly to assume a future bride has that) I would really love one!!! My theme is starfish... Not sure of the colors yet. Our names are Kathi and Ryan our date is September 7th 2008 and we are getting married at the dreams resort in Cancun. Anything else I should addhuh.gif

Oh I am SO dumb - when you save in Publisher there is an option to save at 300 for Commercial printing or 150 for desktop printing (which is the default) - I just saw this - SORRY! Thanks for your help Morgan - I wouldn't have even known what I needed without you!

Sarah,
Thank you....

too funny!

I saw this wedding (beach weddings - lots of BDW girls watched it). Anyway, they had their logo EVERYWHERE at their wedding. It was even drawn with gold in some places. I think it was on their aisle runner. Just about every place you could squeeze in a logo. It might have been projected on the wall too.
