Default Vector Assistance

Can some one convert the attached png to vector? There is some red lining that needs cleaned up as well. I need this as just a black and white vector image to give to a sign shop for there blotter. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Hows this? Used Vector Magic (you get two free conversions before they make you pay!).

I'll look at it tomorrow when back at a computer where I can view it and send it off to the sign shop to see if it's good enough for their plotter.

I've used vector magic in the past when I needed something to be cleaned up some. Great little program, don't know if I'd buy it but when your on the road working on something it's a nice help.

I have access to it from work otherwise I would never buy it either. I put up the link to it for the free conversions in case anyone needed to try it out for themselves.

I didn't go to work today because my son was sick so I won't get to send it out tomorrow. Is it a True vector? Last time I tried having one converted it wasn't good enough for his plotter. I don't want to spend money on him doing artwork cause it's for a disc golf disc. Just the $10 for vinyl and having it cut.

I use Inkscape and the Path - Trace Bitmap tool. It's really simple and free. You need to play with the values to get the look you're after. For instance, whether you want a smoother representation or a more exact replica. Here's what I came up with from a really quick shot at it.

EDIT: OK, HBT doesn't like SVG file extensions so I changed the extension to zip. It's still a svg though, just modify the extension to svg and you should be able to open it.

As far as I know it is a true vector image. I actually don't know enough about the program to know how/what it does. I just know my coworker uses it so I remoted into the office to convert your image. From what I can tell it is all vector, I was able to adjust its size without pixelation.

AJ, that is perfectly good for my needs. Is this one more Plotter freidnly than the eps file?
I'll probably just send both and see which he thinks will work best with his machine. Thanks for the help guys.

Sorry, I don't know much about eps.. or svg for that matter. I do know it is 100% vector. You can zoom in all day long and the lines are perfect.
