What resolution? Or is that important?

Also, should this be a "DesignContest Card" or just any old card?

I'd imagine it would have to be 300DPI, as cards are for print.

it would be fun if it was a DC related postcard. If it comes out really great we might actually print it.

I was bored so thought i'd play around with Photoshop for a bit and throw an entry in myself :) This is a picture of my brother & nephew (he'd kill me if he saw this.......lol). Not exactly themed for DC, but I thought it was a cute idea:

Thank you, Bella & Sergey! My husband showed it to a couple of people he works with, and someone actually was "appalled" that someone would tatoo their baby........lol. Oh, the fun of Photoshop :)

Dragonfly - There are several members that are under the age of 18, so no swearing, nudity, etc. Guess that as a general guideline, keep things "PG-13"

Is there vector artwork available for the DC logo and wordmark? if not, what font was used for the wordmark?
-------
Oops! ...was lookin' at the top of the page. I see the font in the wordmark changes depending whether you're looking at the forums or at the homepage. Is there a font preference?

Hi guys and girls :) , here is a vector file of DC icon ... as long as the font, I don´t think there is a particullar one, just try to keep it within the same style as the actual one.

take care
Bella
