Exclamation LSP Sticker question

The stickers have already been paid for to the printer earlier this month. I was contacted by the place yesterday and has been brought to my attention that the font is causing an issue on the cutting/peeling. I have already contacted the person who supplied me the original images to see if it is possible to obtain the original raw or which ever file was used to send to the printer here. Being a jpg that I used has copied over the jagged edges on the lettering on the sticker. At this time we are trying to resolve the situation for the most economical route. A few test stickers were printed and I was given one to go over.

But the thought of having the font changed to a new once since the current style and past sticker used the font "Bleeding Cowboy". I am wanting feed back on if it should stay the same or pick a new font. I added the poll to help for the ones that don't want to post. If the font should stay the same, I'll just have the image recreated at the shop in their format for a clean print out like the ones we already have on our trucks atm.


Post y'all's opinions please.

I also apologize in the delay of not having these mailed out already.

I think it would be in the best interest of future sticker making etc, to choose a new font. This will be a problem we are likely to encounter again in the future. If we can pick something that is more readily available/easier to make, I thin we'd be better off. Just my opinion.

OK. I really like the font that is in the current logo, but at the same time, I understand that if it is already causing some problems (no matter how small they might be,) then there will likely be more issues later on.

On that note, I agree with Christine. Keep it simple for the sake of printing.

I'm starting to think if they made it anyway in either font, it will be ok due to the fact they are not copying an already made img. That being said, say if I made the logo at the house and emailed them the jpg, the same issue would arise. Image distortion.

Just thinking out loud.

Why do you have to email a .jpg? Can they accept a raw file? What kind do they need? A .dwg or some other type of vector based drawing?


****EDIT****
Basically, saying to let them just do it up in their shop without us messing with it at all.

They can. Issue is I did not have a raw file to begin with. I asked Casey if he was able to obain that file from the last printer. But where that printer saved the files are unknown atm. If I am able to get them, I'll forward them to my printer and all should be peachy.

You need to be more clear on what they can and can't do. My suggestion is something they don't necessarily have to spend an eternity trying to make; just use something cut and dry.

Hmm. I'm gonna play around with a few things if you don't mind. I may or may not get anything worked out on it, but I'll try. Don't let me slow you down at all either. Do what you have to do.

They have the font in their computer and can print it. But what it comes down to is them making it from scratch to mimick the already made logo. And that comes at a cost I was trying to avoid.

So I say we need a more cost-effective option.
