Hi @Russ,

You want to use a vector based drawing application such as inkscape ( free ) or Adobe Illustrator ( $ ) There are others, but I use inkscape.
Maybe someone else have other alternatives to share?

Cheers @koendb. I'll check them out. I'm a bit of a technophobe but hopefully I'll be able to work it out. 👍😂Β

@russ Those drawing applications can have quite a steep learning curve.

However, there are plenty of videos to be found on YT if you search for 'Making logos with Inkscape|Illustrator/...'

Thanks @koendb. Checked out inkscape on YouTube and at first glance it looks doable. I might get it and have a bit of a play around with it.Β

thanks for sharing the process with this, I want to put a logo on my first build a kit p-bass and have some left over for guitars as well, will likely go with rosko and frost for the printing and design it in inkscape.
