Hey guys, I'm scratching my head on this one.
Searched up on google but came with nothing relevant.

I've made up a logo, when I print it, it's pixelated heaps!
Not sure what I've done wrong, or maybe my page layout was wrong?
I'm using 1024x800 btw. So should come out good?

It's the text that i'm not happy with :(

Can anyone help me? I've uploaded the image as PSD.

did you create it as 300DPI? cause 72 DPI (which it is coming up as on my comp) is for screens not printing

Oh okay, I'll try that.
I set it to 100x50cms, which is what I'd like to get it printed at and it helped. I'll try set it at 300DPI.

Would I just copy my image onto the 300DPI layout? Or start it again?

Edit: Thanks man it worked! Just transferred my image onto the 300DPI layout.

no probs, glad i could help.

anything that is going to end up printed make sure to set the DPI at 300 minimum and it will come out sweet.

Vector > Raster

Logos should really be created in Illustrator as vector format, it can be enlarged to any size without loss of quality and gives more options for printing/cutting. If I had to put something like that on the side of a vehicle I'd need to redraw it in Illustrator anyway.

^^ exactly this, plus dont forget to put it into CMYK mode..

RGB, 72dpi is for screen/web
CMYK, 300dpi is for print.
