OT Help - Need Navy logo graphic

A grandson has joined the Navy, and is having a going away party Saturday. The Boss wants to make a cake decorated with the Navy logo, like this picture.



This came from the navy website HERE but it's too small to work with. There's a shop locally that can print a picture with edible ink that transfers to the cake. Does anybody have a larger version? I've enlarged this but my graphics program pixilates it too badly.

Jim, find out what size the Ckae man needs, and I can take any of those and clean them up or alter them for you.

Re: OT Help - Need Navy logo graphic

Greg, that first one would be perfect if it weren't for the text. The second two you found are the official seal and are only to be used for official Navy functions.

Larry, that one is good too, except for the background being black instead of blue, and it's much better than what I have now.

Brent, I was hoping you could help me out on this. The cake decoration will be 8" diameter. I don't know the resolution of the printer that makes it, but I would guess it's no more than 300 DPI.

I would think that the easiest thing to do would be to take the first one Greg found and just replace the text. It's 900 X 900 which should produce a pretty good picture, but any course you want to take will be greatly appreciated, and maye even convince The Boss that my time on the board isn't a total waste. Nah, but it's a good thought! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

FYI here are the Pantone colors for it:

Blue PMS 275
Gold PMS 125 (or metallic ink)
Red PMS 187
Brown PMS 464

The Graphics God did beat you to it, and it's beautiful! I'll post a picture of the proud inductee and his cake after the party Saturday.

Thanks Brent! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Re: OT Help - Need Navy logo graphic

I knew he would. Bottom line in the graphics world......Brent ROCKS. And he has always bent over backwards to help me. I just think (& for GOOD reason) that he would be afraid to assume that position in front of Pat or Aaron. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Re: OT Help - Need Navy logo graphic

Pictures as promised. This is the proud inductee and the Champion cake decorator. In a few days he reports to Great Lakes for nine weeks of basic. Then somewhere else for nuclear stuff. Eventually he's supposed to be assigned to a carrier.




And a closeup of the Kid and Cake.



Thanks again, Brent!
