I ordered the blank banner, but I'm running in to a minor problem...

I had to replace my vinyl cutter last year, and I can't use the old files on the new cutter. That means I either need the TRS logo converted to a vector image that I can pull apart to cut the vinyl in the different colors, or better software to scan it in to the cutting software.

The software that came with my cutter doesn't have a feature to scan images and vectorize them. I was going to buy a software upgrade, but it's like $500. I found (2) possible software solutions that are under $200, I'm just trying to figure out which one is going to work best for me. I want to get this sent out by mid march.

I have larger files of the TRS logo. If anyone knows how to convert it to a vector so I can cut the blue, black and red, and then piece it together, please send me a PM.

Road trip time!

Sounds like this may be going via Whitehorse. I'm willing to split the distance to Smithers, say Dease Lake? I can also make sure it spends some time in Terrace before heading east to Prince George. I could carry it a little farther east if needed, or maybe south towards Kamloops? Keep me in mind when the route is planned,

The banner arrived today. I'll start working on it next week. I still need a vector image of the TRS logo.

If it comes through GA I'll at least meet up somewhere. If I got a ranger road worthy (and have the time) I don't mind helping to transport it either. I'm right int he middle of the state so if I'm able to help transport I could carry it from one end to the other. Wouldn't be too much trouble to pick it up in North GA on a Friday afternoon or night and have it in south GA by mid day Sunday, meeting people along the way to sign it of course. All that is depending on if my trucK is road worthy again by the time it gets here.
