I've just recently opened a bakery and I got a call from a pretty important place that could really help me get my name out there. They want to order some cupcakes and cookies with their logo on them. It's a pretty simple logo because it's all text, with the letters being different colors. I think it's the perfect candidate to make with a cricut using Sure Cuts A Lot, both of which I have. I tried importing the logo into SCAL but only parts of the letters show up. Does anyone know how to make it a SVG so that the whole thing shows up? Please, keep any tips really really really dummy proof, computer techie I'm not!

Thank you so much!

You need to download inkscape to make it into a SVG file. The download is free.

I just downloaded inkscape but I don't see a way to import the logo into it. Was that wishful thinking that it would be that easy? Part of the reason I chose SCAL instead of the other program (I can't remember the name right now) was because I thought it eliminated the need for inkscape. Was I wrong?

Let's see if I can attach the logo...

Thank you so much everyone, but especially chilzz822! I was losing sleep over this because I knew it was simple enough to do that they would think I was an idiot if I couldn't do it or if I did it badly.

YOu actually could probably even remake it yourself in scal, it looks like a pretty basic font...
I converted yours to a b&w design then converted it to svg... on it's way!

Make The Cut software doesn't require inkscape or SVG files. I debated between the two but felt it was easier to use.

Do you have edible image capabilities? You could entertain the idea of making little plaques with the scal and using edible images of the logo on them. You could cut the "plaques" with a little post/point on the bottom so after they dry, they could be used as a pick in the cupcakes. More of a three D type of look.

Oh, didn't see that it was already done. Sorry I couldn't do it earlier but I was at a funeral. I did email it to you though, just a few minutes ago.

Better to have 2 of them than none at all!
