    For those brides who designed their own logos that have circle logos with a circle of dots around as a border, how did you put the dots there? (Like Sarah's famous Los Cabos logo for her OOT bag, but unfortunately she didn't make hers)

      what program are you using?

      If you are using powerpoint or publisher

      Use the oval/circle tool to make the shape desired
      Then select Format (on your tool bar) > Format Autoshape > Select the Colors and Lines Tab there will be an option for Dashed, scroll down to the dots. You can play around with the thickness and color on this tab too.

      Good luck!

        Another option - but this can only be done in black, so if you want color go with the previous post - is to use the curved word art option. Then pick a dingbat font (webdings, the letter n) and then adjust the curve (using the yellow square) to pull it into a circle.

        Actually - its a little hard to explain, so I just attached one - if you want smaller dots, just edit the text to include more dots (letter n) each is separated by 2 spaces. If you want them bigger, take some of the dots out.

            lol, its really simple, once you do it once, you'll get it.

            Go to your tool bar and click on Insert, then select Picture. Scroll down to Autoshape, select Basic Shapes, then select the oval.
            Then go to Format, then Autoshape. Select the Colors and Lines tab, then Style, and select Round Dot from the drop down. This Tab also alows you to select the color and thicknes of the line. It also allows you to fill in the circle with color. Just play around with it, its quite addicting!
