    Hi,
    I've created a logo and it prints out fine for letterhead and advertisements.

    Today I took the jpg image of the logo that I exported and enlarged it to make a window sticker with it. The edges come out with shadowy edges all over them. I've tried exporting it again with more dpi, but that doesn't help. I thought maybe I needed to do something with the size under export options, but when I try enlarging the logo from that point (by pulling on the corner of it), it gets all distorted around the edges.

    How do I enlarge my logo and keep it looking clear?

    Yes I have - but to no avail. On my computer screen it looks fine enlarged - but not when I print. Do you think I need to have a vector file created?

    The only professional printer I've ever used ask for the image to be in TIFF ... not absolutely sure that will do an enlargement the size of a window sticker, but if you haven't tried it, it might be worth a try. And from what I understand, vectoring is a good thing when planning big enlargements.

    Hope that helps.
