I need an Ibanez logo - but not a solid color, just a black outline of a logo on a white background so I could print it off on some decal paper and fill in the outline. Something along these lines:

But not a Fender logo, as stated. And no modifications, just the standard style. Many many thanks to whoever does this.

Thanks Tijs! :) But, .eps file? I don't know how to open that, if it's photoshop, I don't have photoshop :p which is the reason I couldn't do it myself.

Thanks as well Dan, if I can't get the actual font, which I will try and find first, I'll go to your :)

EPS is vector based (no quality loss on resize). You can open it with many programs. What kind of file are you looking for?

Here's JPG.

Thanks lost, I may end up using that but I want something with a bit thicker lines if I can.

@Tijs, I guess just like a standard photo file, jpg or png or something. It doesn't matter if it looses to much quality, since I will be filling it in with a paint pen or something.

In general, it would be good if the pictures aren't very big. This only needs to be the size of the logos on headstocks as this is where it'll be going.

EDIT: Just saw your post, I mean like what lost posted, just an outline. But jpg is good enough

Yeah, just like that :) it'll loose some quality if I shrink it though I'm guessing?

Not if you shrink it, only if you enlarge it.

just don't shrink it using Paint.

EDIT: Tijs' looks better than mine.

ok, because I need to make it, I dont know the dimensions but approx the size of the logos on Ibanez headstocks. It's going to make the lines thinner though I know that much.

heres ballpark the size i would need:

on a head stock, the logo would be about 3 inches long i think. Thats how big the second one i did is. just measure it.

Ryder1234

Length: 2 1/2 inch. Height (at the "I") 5/8 inch.
That's what it is on my Ibanez.

Not to mention that it's redicuously easy to do that in paint. Take a picture of Dexter and draw a santa hat on him. But what Karin meant is your obsession is worrying.

I wanted a nice hat but I couldn't paste one because they are in a white square that blocked out some of his face.

It is not weird. I have been in love with him since I was seven!

That is weird though.

Just take the paint brush in paint and draw it, the picture is so small that it'll look fine

I suck at paint! I can't draw with a mouse! Will you do that for me please? Draw one? You drew the one in your avatar, right? If not, will you get a good pic and paste one on?!

I did but I don't really want to do that... not to be mean but you should use like a pic o yourself or something and put a hat on that.

I might be able to send you a bigger hat! How do you shrink pics. on paint when i try it just cuts off edges instead of shrinkin the whole thing. you are awesome tho. Thanx:p

Try starting a photobucket.com account. they have a really simple editing program on there. That is how I always add the hat to whatever eye is my avatar at the time. I do photoshop to, but photobucket is easier for adding hats and doing quick stuff just for fun.
