Need help designing a file

Hello!

Does anyone know where I would post to ask if someone can design a svg file for me? My aunt wants something that says “Jeff Boyardee”, as a play on Chef Boyardee… Preferably with the graphic of Chef Boyardee. I’d love to engrave a cutting board for her but I have ZERO graphic design skills.

Thank you!

You could easily design one with the interface. All the fonts and graphics to use.

That would be a trademark violation. You can certainly design one yourself for personal use, but nobody could legally make a design like that and charge you for it.

Sounds like an ideal opportunity to learn some basic design skills. That’s kind of the point of owning a machine like the Glowforge.

This took 60 seconds to create in the interface.

Stick a few zeros in the meta description for HxW.

Thank you. I took a screenshot of the svg

Not necessarily to enable any infringement, but this design might work for you.

The possibilities are endless

That and some premium beta text might be more than enough!

Ah, ok. Thanks. I meant to say developer skills I guess. I just don’t know how to make files. I do alright designing things but honestly I didn’t think about copyright violation. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Thank you!

We’re happy to help you figure out how to make a file, and it’s really not hard. Which design app have you chosen?

It is perfect for what I’m thinking. I’m using Inkscape. I’ve figured out a few things in the but sometimes it doesn’t work out. Idk. I’m stuck between wanting to create things and taking the time to learn the program. Lol… I need to just sit down and read the tutorials. That’s how I’ve learned everything that I have so far. I’m just really good at putting the cart before the horse… lol.

There are many ways to learn, and online there are many different web sites and youtube channels.

One of my favorite online resources is “logos by nick” - he has as web site and a youtube channel. I have not paid for his Inkscape course because I didn’t need it, but the free content he publishes is extremely well presented. He has a $15 “lifetime” course for learning Inkscape, and I have to believe it’s as good or better than the free content he publishes. Every time I watch one of his videos, I learn something new.
