    I have seen the fantastic looking plaques available from this site and quite bfancy the DTS ES and DD EX ones...but Wifey is having a hard time with me spending that mush on 'a couple of signs' !

    I was talking about it with my neighbour and he said he had a friend who could more than lilely make up something similar for me....but he would need the printed logos.

    Does anyone know where to get really high quality DTS ES and DD EX logos I could use to print out ? I have seen people selling them on Ebay but dont want to spend over £10 when I have the means to print them out at work myself.
    The plaques this guy is going to make may end up not being as good but it is worth a try I suppose.

    if you can track down any pdf documents which feature the logos (e.g. dvd player brochures) you can zoom in & take screenshots for some pretty hi-res 2 tone logos

    this is probably illegal though :confused:

    Yes they are very nice. Maybe it would have been easier not to show the wife the prices in the first place :)

    They just looks sooooo nice and I very much doubt that this guy is going to be able to produce anything that comes close...even if I suply him with some good printed logos!

    I reckon that if these dont turn out that great the ones in the link above could just end up on my bank statement after the next pay day ;)

    Banners, thanks for the mail...the logos are great and just what I needed :thumbsup:

    I have had a bit of a play in Photoshop and, as well as the origonals, I am going to print out these two to see which looks best.

    I've pm'ed a mod regarding the legality of the images being sent and it appears that (other) threads are in existence here so should be OK as no action was quashed then.
    However should a Mod request that no images should be emailed about then I'll stop sending the logos and I ask that any one that has the said logos (from moi) also cease distributing them. Sorry for the little moan!

    Jason, they look pretty tasty, a better piccy would be appreciated chap! You have my email!!!!!

    If a mod thinks that the above pics should not be on here then please remove them...dont want to be causing any legal hassle :eek:

    Same goes for emailing them to people....but for now all the people who asked should have the above two in their mailbox ;)
