    Default Mandolin Orchestra Recruitment Poster Needed

    Our Mandolin Orchestra in Tucson is in recruit mode once again.

    Anyone have a cool poster they can share that I can modify?

    Crickets.....well, this is what I came up with. If anyone else can share that would be great (I'm not the most creative individual). I know there are a lot of mandolin orchestra's across the country!

    So ..... Just for the fun of it, I opened your file and was going to fiddle around with the text a little. (I've got family in Tucson, so felt a little connected.)

    Your graphic is pretty low resolution. 96dpi as far as I can tell. How are you planning to print it? Is this something you scanned? I was going to try rotating it, but there's like a paper texture background to it. PM me if you want.

    Hi Sue! Thanks for the reply! Any mandolin players in your Tucson family??

    I'm not partial to that graphic. I just found it on a google search. I download it & used the "smudge" feature in Apple Photo to erase the original text. I then exported it as a PDF and added the text.

    I'm no graphic designer....that's why I was asking for some help!

    I was planning on just sending the file to Office Max and have them print out a few different sizes to post around town.

    Nope, I'm the only one in my family with the mandolin addiction

    Send me the link with the graphic and I'll look at it. As it is, it's not going to look that "crisp". Or maybe I've got something similar in my files. I'll look in the morning, it's getting late (for me) here.

    Here's what I did with it just fooling around with it for a couple minutes.

    Don't use this, though, the graphic is weird with that background and the low res.

    I've been here since '08. I haven't heard of them. I did see that they have an active Facebook page a pic of them playing last year. I'll check them out!

    Dang! This is what happens when you don't spend enough time proofing

    Chris were you able to edit it? If not, I'll fix it for you. Hope there aren't too many of them hanging around yet.

    I was not....I'm on a Mac. I was planning on having the Office Depot peeps fix it.

    Thanks again for your help Sue! You are an ANGEL!
