    I created a logo and now I'm trying to use it in MS-Word as part of my letterhead. Please take a look at the attached screen shot that shows how the logo looks in Word & in the PDF file that I created to send to kinkos for them to print my business cards (the same problem happens in the bus cards as in the letterhead).

    I'll be printing on ivory paper and card stock so I need the transparent background.

    Also attached is the ACTUAL PNG file that I tried immporting into MS-Word. I exported to the PNG Transparent format and when asked whether I wanted to use the "Highest Quality...." I selected YES.

    Thanks.

    You might want to try changing it to an EPS and see what happens there. I know ANY printer can take that format!

    1) Thanks for the reply.

    2) I've never heard of an EPS file.

    3) I don't see an EPS option under export.

    If you have any other "Graphics" programs... you can open the file up in there and change it over to an .eps and it should work from there....

    Nope--no other graphics program. I'm not really a graphics person. I only bought the software to create a logo for my own business. I had previously looked at having one designed. But the LOWEST quote I recieved was $80. MOST of them were $120+.

    Hi Doni.

    Try exporting your logo as a 'bmp'.
    Microsoft loves the 'bmp' format.

    You can do this in The Logo Creator by choosing "Custom Export" from the export menu. Then choose BMP.

    Also, try setting the resolution (also under Export) to 300dpi.

    Let me know if this helps!

    - Marc

    I'll try the BMP tonight. I didn't before because I thought I'd need the transparent BG.

    I don't have Adobe Acrobat--I use PDF995 to create my PDF's.
