Hi Bernard, Drew:

Thanks so much for taking the time to answer my questions. I /really/
appreciate your help! I've tried to answer your questions inline below.
I still have a few of my own.

Hi Folks:

I'm hoping someone can help w/ this request. I'd like to get a 5' wide
banner for the SCALE event in California at the end of this month.

Is there an official logo that's at least 600dpi resolution?

Please have a look at the  branding wiki page:

Got it. Thanks

Drew: I'm thinking this image:

The largest exported PNG version is 2000px width (while you need
5x600=3000px), but you can use Inkscape with the source file linked
there to export larger versions too.

Hi Bernard:

Is that the image here?

If not, where do I find it? I can scale it via Gimp.

The printer is named "VistaPrint"

It looks like the best resolution I can get with them is 75 dpi (see below)

Especially with posters and banners please remember to include the
necessary white space area around the logo in your design.

Right (see below re: full bleed)

I see that
there's an interesting design for a vertical banner. Is that design
ready yet?

Which design do you talk about?
Can you link it here?

What size do you need?

Full Bleed Size (starting document size)
71.80" x 30.20"
1824mm x 767mm
5385 x 2265 pixels

Document Trim Size (final size after being cut)
71.53" x 30.00"
1817mm x 762mm
5365 x 2250 pixels

I realize the DPI is not what I spoke to originally. This is actually
fewer dpi (75) I was under the impression that VistaPrint could produce
a high-res banner. Apparently that's not the case. I do have a printer
in Tucson that can do hi res, but it will be about 3 or 4 times the
VistaPrint cost.

I'd like some feedback from you folks: do you want a 75 dpi banner, or
should we go for higher resolution (but more $) Personally, I think the
"LibreOffice-Initial-Artwork-Colors_Guidelines_Valid1.png" (if that's
the logo) will be OK at 75 dpi: graphic edges are straight, sans-serif
font. At a distance (> 6 feet), I think we can get by for a trade show.
If we buy by 10-Feb, we get a free banner which has the following

Full Bleed Size (starting document size)
35.70" x 20.20"
907mm x 513mm
2678 x 1515 pixels

Document Trim Size (final size after being cut)
35.50" x 20.00"
902mm x 508mm
2662 x 1500 pixels

Again, 75 dpi, but up close (< 3 ft) it should be OK.

Cor used a enlarged version of the installer image for FOSDEM, but there
have been some other proposals in the past...

Is that image available?

Of course I'm under a deadline: I'd like to order the banner by close of
business 10-Feb-2011

Quite short, but I think this should be possible.

Do you already know if your printer can use a bitmap or a SVG vector
graphic and RGB colors?
