But the best way to circumvent this problem is to let such a designer Export italic a WMF (Windows Metafile) italic from their original Adobe Illustrator italic drawing. If the logo is not too fancy it wille across very nicely. You can Insert italic this file as a picture in Word italic or PowerPoint italic scale it and print it. It's very moderate in file size italic and even transparant italic around the inner shapes because it's what they call object italic or vector italic oriented. If it doesn't look good then it's probably too fancy italic (with mesh gradients drop shadows color ramps and frosted sugar).
