    Does anyone know how to fix a monogram? I bought it a while ago and I can't remember where I got it from. It is to blurry right now and I want to use it on my programs. It appears fine on screen, but it is blurry when I print it out. Something to do with pixels or something maybe

      it looks like it's too small of a resolution. Is this the largest size you have it in?

          If it is to do with pixels then there is really no way to get rid of the blurryness. Do you know what the PPI (pixels per inch) is of the photo? Basically to make it look good on the program you would want it to be around 300ppi, but deffinetly no less that 200ppi. If you have photoshop you could try to bump up the ppi, but it would take a lot of work and youd probablly have to do some rendering as well. Sorry if thats confusing, but theres not too much you can do to fix a pixel issue.

            ditto on the ppi....it'd be tough to fix. I tried to sharpen it in a publication I have at work, but it didn't work. Do you know what font the "B" is in? I could try to recreate it...

              I don't know where you got it from, but when i purchased mine they told me that you can't re size it.....It ended up being way to much trouble, and I just got napkins, labels and coasters made through them!!!! (don't really have the patience right now!!!)

                      I use Macromedia Fireworks - it's like Photoshop but I find it MUCH more user-friendly!!!

                      If you want to use it, I can email a larger, better version to you...let me know! (And you don't have to use it, I just like doing things like this; weird, I know!)
