Does SignBlazer accept SVG's or do you have to save your vectors under a different format?

I traced the Align and Trex 500 logo in AI. Maybe not perfect, but good enough IMO.

I'm a n00b here and don't even have a bird yet (car race guy for decades) but I am glad to see a vinyl thread. I have a couple Roland Stikas 8" and 3" and if you want logos, there is a great resource. While you may not find some of the smaller/obscure companies, you can find EPS versions of most any logo at:

http://www.brandsoftheworld.com/

I am working on a 1/5 scale R/C Formula1 replica paint job for a friend right now and found majority of the sponsor logos on the aforementioned site. Even ones I though for sure wouldn't be there!

Hi guys,

I think I ask this before.. but anyway I'll ask again..

I've got an Avant Aurora sticker that came with the kit.. And i wanted to convert this to Ai files so I can bring this to someone to have it done in stiker cut-out.. and use as a stencil for painting..

How should I do it.. I've downloaded the adobe illustrator Trial version.. and want to try doing it myself..

I've scan the sticker and save a jpeg.. so i can import it in to illustrator..

any help will be appreciated..

quest
