Will the symbol I choose remain in the database after I have selected it?

Yes. Web.com retains the rights to all other symbols, so they remain in our database. What makes a logo unique is the combination of the symbol with the company name, its colors, and their spatial relationship. This "uniqueness" enables you to trademark your logo.

What's the difference between an EPS and JPG?

An EPS file contains vector information, which means you can make it as big or small as you like without compromising print quality. It is the standard file format used by professional printers. It is the file you will need if you want to produce professional-grade print materials. NOTE: You may not be able to view the EPS version of your logo on your computer screen. Just because your EPS file displays poorly onscreen does not mean it will print badly on a printing press. Opening an EPS requires specific software.

A JPG is a compressed image file most suitable for use with your laser printer and/or on the internet. A JPG is a much smaller resolution file than an EPS and cannot be enlarged without losing detail. Therefore it is best to print a JPG at its original size only. It should not be used for professionally printed materials, as it may appear blurred or jagged.

What software programs can open an EPS file?

Opening an EPS requires certain software, so you may not be able to view your EPS onscreen. Adobe Illustrator, Macromedia Freehand, Corel Draw and Hallogram HiJaak are common programs used to open and edit an EPS vector file. To display but not edit an EPS vector file, you can use Microsoft Word (Insert Picture From File) and/or Microsoft Publisher (Insert Picture from File, although not all types of EPS are supported).
