Re: Merry Christmas all! I'm making files today--

Your old blades....

If anybody has some old blades sitting around that you aren't going to use anymore, would you be willing to send them to me. I am going to figure out how to sharpen them.

HOHOHO and Santa Hat Frames

Here are some frames that I came up with. Three have HOHOHO on them and three have Santa Hats. If you take these into Inkscape, you can adjust the size of the frames by pulling on certain nodes. I hope everyone likes them.

Re: pdf vs jpg/bmp

It all depends on the individual file. A JPG file is a low resolution file meant to be viewed on screen. A PDF file could be any type of file saved as a PDF. I can create a file in Illustrator and save it as a PDF and you could open it and not have to trace any of it because it will already be vecto...

Re: Illustrator and SCAL

You will want to make a note of the original sizes. When you import them into SCAL, the sizes might change.
