Hi Charles!

Let's see whether I can help somehow :-)

Hello Christoph,

        Hi Charles,
        it seems that nobody replied so far ... so I'd like to know a
        bit more.
             * Do you need the TDF tagline or non-tagline logo as EPS?
             * What color type(s) do you need?
             * If color, what for will the logos be used? Rationale:
        We used
               graphical filter effects in the source files that
        cannot be
               easily exported, so ...
                     * if you need the full color / effects
                       logo, then you need to specify the DPI for the
                       or ...
                     * do you need plain colors (e.g. when printing
                       and paying for green/gray plain color only),
        or ...
                     * will gradients without further effects work as
             * Is it needed to have the (R) symbol?

The logo will be used for our official T-Shirts, so we need the
contemporary logo, effects, with TDF subline and if possible optimized
for T-Shirts :-)

Well, this is still a bit unspecific - as I said, "contemporary logo"
plus "filter effects" is a bit troublesome. Especially since we lack
professional design tools (= print production ready). However, I had a
look on some T-Shirt printing pages and there doesn't seem to be any
"default resolution" that should be used.

Thus, I "simply" filled the section in the wiki with the missing files -
just take what you need, but please consider:
      * EPS are produced by a non-publishing tool (expect issues)
      * Colors are converted from RGB, so professional CMYK support
        (color room conversion) is missing
      * for some reason (I don't know why), all EPS graphics miss a
        proper bounding box definition (= required margin for the
        branding) - please have a look at the wiki page how it should
        look like
      * the contemporary logo uses a lot of filter effects; the
        rasterizing made the file incredibly huge (8.7 MB)

Sounds quite promising, doesn't it? ;-)))

From my point-of-view, it would be highly desirable to pick a PNG for
the printing of the shirts. Color conversion is as bad as for the EPS,
and we know what you get - so if you have any details what you need
exactly, then please ping us again :-)
