can you go back to the original file and save as PDF?

this same thing happened to me… I created my monogram using MS PowerPoint and I went back to save it as a PDF.  Now I can adjust the size of the image in Word and other programs and it doesn’t pixelate at all!

I purchased mine from a website and unfortunately even though I have pretty good powerpoint skills she said I would have to go back to her for resizing.  Mine was actually included in the price so maybe go back to them.

From what I know (which is very basic)  JPEGs are raster images which means it’s comprised of pixels… so when you change the size (to make it bigger) it will be pixelated and appear blurry. 

When I converted my monogram I saved two versions… and used the JPEG one first when trying to create my program and it was really low quality.  Then I plunked the PDF image in and it worked fine.  Give it try… if you did your monogram in powerpoint, it’ll just be a matter of resaving it.

ummm… I’m not sure exactly how to convert the file… but I just googled "converting JPEG to PDF" and a bunch of sites came up… maybe you can have a look?

if you sace the item, which was created at 3×3 lets say – at 300 dpi – when printed it would print 3×3. You just want a high resolution for clarity. If you lower the dpi only, it will only get grainier – not actually smaller.

if you were given it by someone I would take it back and ask them for detailed instructions and help.

 

Good luck.
