Beware of customer supplied eps files!

Recommended Posts

:)  :) So, I was ecstatic when my customer actually had an eps file

for their logo.....so very few do.

 

They sent it over to me for t-shirts and below is what I saw....

sure was glad I didn't have to vector it!  

Thought I would just check it out and simplify it for HTV.

 

The second picture is what I saw in wireframe..........

:blink: OMG....not exactly what I had expected!

 

Oh, and of course, they wanted it ASAP!

 

:thumbsup: :thumbsup:  Thanks to Skarekrow for pinch hitting and making things right!

He did a great job and fast!

That looks like it came out of a Dover design book, Art Neavueau? maybe? ALL EPS files, are not created equal. I've got a couple of those books/discs, pretty much, most of the files are like that. Not all, but most.

A lot of designers do it that way cuz it`s faster and easier.

When I get them like that, I vector it.

The final version was simplified a bit (from the one shown) and optimized for easier weeding.

 

( and thanks for the kind words, ya'll )

They only wanted 3-4 ... new business just opening.

Maybe more later...maybe not.

 

Even simplified it is a challenge to weed and not miss any

little pieces!

I hope you have a servo cutter. I would of went silkscreen for that. Or they would be looking at $40 a shirt. or I would of talked them into a sublimation shirt.

Not bad...I like that little VinylMaster program....it works similar to Corel.

 

The next problem I had with this graphic is they wanted it on a black shirt......

so I had to go through and make a "dark background" version of

the design.
