Unfortunately all I have left is two red and two teal... At least till Luke gets a hold of me if he still wants his teal one.

I can get more made if your interested in a white one... also if I can figure out what the Quasar looks like and get a chip of it I might be able to match it to a color he has.

Luke where did you go... I still have this teal banner that you want for.

I actually have 2 teal and 1 red left.

Does anyone want anymore of these?

Hey I went to install one of these the other day and they look funny. The letters are out of proportion. It looks like when you stretched the word, it stretched the letters instead of the white space between. What program did you use?

I used Illustrator and the letters width and height wise matched what I currently have on my car. Thats how I got that size.

What are the dimensions of the factory banner? no one was able to give me those so I had to work off of something else that someone had made at one point, which was probably not right as your describing.

If you can get me the height and width of the letter B and the overall width of the entire banner then I'll see if I can match it exactly, but what I made is the same as what someone else was already selling before me.

The size is fine, but the letters are streched out of proportion

So your in turn telling me the size isnt fine...

Whats the height and width of the letter B in the stock one, and what is the letter spacing as well?

No, I don't think you follow me. Take the A at the end. The left leg is a different width than the right leg. The overall size is fine, but the letter is skewed.

That's the skew from the contour. Maybe I'll have to do it a different way then.

You haveta move each letter on its own,rather than countouring the whole image.

Not true, there are many ways to do it and this was my first time and im sure I don't have to move each letter individually there has to be a quicker way.

What I mean by moving each letter on its own is contouring the area around the letters, rather than the image as a whole. Its difficult to describe, most vinyl shops use a program that takes that stretching into account and moves white area between the letters, rather than the letters.

I need to call my buddy, i think he uses something called CorellDRAW. TO THE PIRATE BAY

Unfortunately its nothing that I did to it... It's the EPS file that I started with.

If you use just the "Beretta" font that we have avilable you will notice the gaps in the R and the A are not large enough and seem squished, but this EPS file was brought to my attention by Woody from some "logo" website. And whoever made it didnt make it right.

This is the original file un-touched, just made into a PDF so you can see. Even the R is not the same width on one side of the letter as the other is.

Hmm, I have just come across a "trial version" of this program, and will research.
