@beechubey:  Are you very familiar with Illustrator?  It can definitely be done in there but you have to be pretty skilled at it.  I’m a graphic designer so if you want any help I’m happy to lend a hand!

It should be doable, but you might have to add some more fonts. Have a look at dafont.com and see if you can find something suitable!

@beechubey:  As the PP mentioned, it can definately be done.  I’m not sure what is in the trail version of AI, but it can be done.  There are vectors all over the web that are swirls that can be easily modified.

But if you’re very unfamiliar with it, this is not the time to learn.  I’ve been using Photoshop for over a decade and have been struggling to pick up Illustrator on the side with rather limited success for several years.  It’s a great program, but it’s very complicated.  There are a slew of tutorials on YouTube that hit specific and general items, but I would suggest have a graphic designer on this.

@beechubey:  It wouldn’t take me very long.  When you have a good font you can use the different glyphs to create something like this.  It would probably only take me a half an hour so I wouldn’t charge you anything.  Let me know!

@beechubey:  Sorry for the late reply… last night was a bit hectic in our household. Is this a bit better? Unfortunately the swashy glyph for the ‘B’ crosses over a lot, so I had to go with a less flourished option…
