FP, a tip if you're having problems with the contrast in an image and legibility of the text, try this trick. you use the dark colour (in this case black) you'd like to use for the bright areas of the image as a shadow, offsetted 1 or 2 points to the bottom-right (usually), and the bright colour (white in your case) on top of that:

I felt like making something silly, inspired by the evangelism thread - Come, and I accidentally did it in A4 as well.

I dig it. I may hang a few of those today.

I also like this quite a bit. Neat-o!

Thanks guys!

alright I printed it out and answered my own question

the answer is:
-yes you can read the tiny text
-the rest of the text didn't show up for some reason
-only 3 of the pope cards showed up printed, and they're cut off. This might just be because this isn't an 8x11 image?

weeeird

anyhow, I dig the poster! Cool logo, too!
Glad to know the tiny text came out. I've fixed the main text to match 000's suggestion - thanks! Do you mind if I borrow that text and upload it as a variant pdf?

I'll upload new versions once I figure a solution to the margin issue.

The US letter version should be the regular 8.5x11 inches, and there is no margin - it's supposed to bleed a little, but I don't know enough about printers to know whether most can actually support that mode of printing.. because the alternative of just scaling it to fit a page and manually guillotining it sounds like more effort than its worth.

I had this idea of doing completely different PD logos for each poster, but if anyone wants to reuse that one, let me know and I'll put it up somewhere - the .svg is only ~12kb.

Post it. You can never have too many logos.

was that to me? of course I made the example for you anyway, it's yours, as far as I care :)

Posting ITT to say that that logo is sweet. The rest of the poster, too.

I think I could get some mileage out of that. Semester's just about over, though, so it won't be for a couple of months. I can't wait to hear the messages.  :lulz:

I was bored, so I made this (hastily,mind you) to hang on windows on the top floors of taller buildings.

My sense of humor is a little fucked, is this even as funny as I think it is?

 :lulz: that is funny


protip: add the instructions ("hang on windows on the top floors of taller buildings.") into the file's description on scribd, so when people from the net find it they'll know what to do with it.

I was reading these as instructions on what to do in case of flood, at first :lol:
