I have started of my new venture and need my logo to be finalised. I normally deal with a local designer but it seems he may be a bit busy to ‘polish’ it – preferring to start the design from scratch and charge me for this.
I have created what I want (took me a while but I like learning new things) and have saved as a .svg file. Can anyone in design give me a price to touch up and convert the file into workable .eps files so I can use on stationery etc?
Thanks in advance – hopefully not too long before I kickoff and can be on here to say hello!

Depending on what the logo is exactly, it may well turn out to be cheaper to start over than to polish it… What exactly is in SVG file anyway?July 18, 2012 at 9:39 am #1111500Past-MemberMember

I agree with the others – it’s easier to start from scratch. Every time I have been asked to ‘touch up’ a logo, I have redrawn from scratch as a vector file, which is then saved as an EPS. Much more effective. There are also different kinds of EPS (Encapsulated Postscript files) which must be considered. The latest versions created by Adobe Illustrator are Version CS6 or v15, yet many overseas printers in Indian and China only work with Version 8. This can cause problems as special effects are lost in earlier versions and flattening of effects can cause problems. Always good to know where the files will end up when creating from scratch.

it looks like the cost to polish and convert will be approx 1/4 the price to design a new one… which (considering the one I designed is the one I want) is fine by me!July 19, 2012 at 1:35 am #1111502bluepenguinMember

I’ve you haven’t found someone to do this for you yet, we could do it for around $100 if it’s as straightforward as it seems.
