    Everything works great, and the cards look cool. The problem is the layout is pretty small. I don't see how to change the size.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Hi what is it that you want to change? is it the overall card size or text/graphics size on the card.

    The text and graphics. The whole layout is maybe half the size of a regular card.

    As you are talking about business cards I assume you are using the Corporate Identity Creator.

    To alter the size of the graphics

    click on the graphic to select it
    click on modify on the left
    click on the icon which says scale
    You can now alter the size by clicking on one of the 'handles' and dragging the graphic to the size you want.

    To alter the size of text

    select the text by clicking on it
    click on the Text icon on the left
    Change the point size to thye size you want.

    Sizing Final Logo Design

    Is there a way to resize the entire logo once you're satisfied with it. I love the logo we created, but now I'm trying to export it to vista print for a business card and it's too large. I changed the dpi to 1000 but it still doesn't fit.

    How can I change the size of all of the elements in a logo design wihout having to play with each text and image? I'd like to print it smaller too for postcards, etc.

    Thanks - I've been driving myself crazy trying things!

    To resize the entire logo at once EASILY Open your logo's TLC file, then choose "export". After deciding what file format place your cursor on the righthand bottom corner of the canvas and push it to your desired size and finish the export .

    Thank you. I did try that by reading thorugh some other posts I had found. Trouble is, I still can't get it to upload to vista print as a business card logo, it says not correct size for template. I tried 300 dpi to 1000 dpi plus saving as a jpeg file everywhere from 560 x 140 to 115 x 84! Any suggestions?
