Default Logo/Graphic Design Question

I am trying to import my business logo into a software program to generate reports. The logo file I have is a .jpg that is 232kb with a size of 1294 x 529. This is the format the software wants the file. The design is very basic. When I print the reports the logo looks like crap. I was told the file is too low resolution.

What are my options? My guess is you can't "increase" resolution. Does it need to be recreated or can the .ai file simply be opened in Adobe Illustrator and re-saved as a higher resolution jpg file?

I have the file in .ai, .eps, .jpg, .pdf and .eps format. The .ai file is 1.08mb and the .eps is 548kb.

Thanks for any advice you can give.

When we needed more resolution on our Logo for some banners it had to be redone. The graphics company we use had software that did that.

That is a very tiny logo given the description. Shoot me a pm and I can take a look if you feel comfortable sharing the logo file.

Very small logo. Have your designer layout a logo file @ 300 dpi for print purposes & another at the size you listed @ 72 dpi for the web/email attachments.

Good luck

I'm hoping the .ai file can be re-saved at the 30 dpi rather than re-inventing the wheel.

I will say maybe, but it's going to be subjective in the sense of how much image loss can you tolerate & still be satisfied. I have done this & works ok sometimes if the image is small enough to where "details" wouldn't otherwise be scrutinized.

Good luck & remember 300 dpi when resaving!
