I am trying to create a decal to compliment my BW EFR turbo install. I have put together the basic format of the decal, but I am having issues keeping the resolution high enough that I can then take the file to a sign shop for cutting.

If there is anyone out there in Forum land that can help me with this, I would be extremely grateful. I have attached a copy of the file. To give you an idea of what I am referring to....when I try to zoom in on the image to make it larger, I end up with very 'jagged' edges, as opposed to smooth lines. I need to be able to make a image (decal) that is about 6 to 7 inches long. I'm sure this can be done in Photoshop or something similar, but I have no experience with this kind of thing and do not own a copy of a image editor that could do this.

I'd even be willing to pay to get this done!! If someone does have the resources and skills, please PM me. I will give you my email address which will allow you to send me large files (which the forum does not), and we can talk cash!!!

The question has to be what format is required by the guy cutting the vinyl?

You'll need a vectorized EPS file format.
You can save bitmap files (i.e. jpg, bmp, tiff) and/or outline vectored files (i.e. ai, eps, wmf) file in the same EPS file. But a sign cutter will need the file as an outline for every shape you'd like cut.
I've been doing vinyl graphics for over 30 years. I have a raster (bitmap) to vector (outline) convertor scanning program.
If you'd like PM me and you can send me a 300dpi JPG file (at least 25% of final size you want) and I'll scan it, cleanup the artwork so it can be cut from vinyl.
What color do you want the final image? And what size?
The smallest part of the image will need to be no smaller that 1/4" tall at full size. FYI
Hope that helps a little!
