Big Mint Logo

Postby AK Dave on Thu Dec 11, 2008 8:27 pm

Not sure where to look for this. I'd like to find a HUUUUGE high-res Mint logo suitable to print photo-quality 8x10 on iron-on transfer paper and put on a T-shirt. I'm likely too lazy to print this myself so I'd like to be able to take a nice graphics file to a photo print place and have them print it for me. Then I'll do the iron-on part myself.

Essentially: I want to make a Mint t-shirt for myself but lack a sufficiently high-quality logo to print for this purpose.

Ideally I'd have them print two iron-ons, one for front and one for back. Probably identical, a big logo on the back and a miniature for the left breast.

Shipping on a T-shirt from Germany to Alaska, USA, is silly. I can't figure out from that website how much they'd want to charge me on top of the 14.90 Euro for a shirt, but I'm sure it isn't free and I'm even more sure that I won't have the shirt in my hands by Saturday. Besides, why funnel them money? If I were to buy a Mint T-shirt online I'd like to support Mint by doing so, and Mint's online store hasn't re-opened.

AK Dave you can find the file herehttp://www.linuxmint-art.org/content/show.php/Linux+Mint+Official+logos?content=90356 Its an SVG file which is vector and can be scaled to any size and not lose detail.

Have fun.

New problem: I cannot print a SVG onto a color printer. I'd like to take the file to a photo/print place. For $18.95(US) I can get any picture printed on a T-shirt. Easy-peasy. But the shops that do this assume I'll be bringing an image from my camera: TIF or JPG. SVG? I can view this online, but if I save it (XP) then IE doesn't know what to do with it the second time around, and I don't have any "save as" option to make it a JPG.

I don't have a clue what to do with a SVG. Do they make nice icons? Are the files handy for importing into Photoshop?

Have fun.

I found this thread today, as I was looking for the same thing as the original poster. The link quoted above is ... sort of bad. It points to a page that claims to have the file. Clicking for download eventually results in ".exe" file being downloaded, not an SVG. Presumably it is a dos or windows program? In either case, not an svg. So ... some sort of bait & switch spam scheme?

Riiiiiiight.

So does there actually exist an "official" or "reference" Mint logo exists, say as an svg. Something one would direct-download with wget or some such?

Have you tried to open the svg in GIMP and exporting it as a jpg?

As I said in my previous post, the link for the svg does not go to an svg. It goes to an exe.

No matter, since a decent-res png is here: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File: ... x_Mint.png
