Help with getting rid of pixels on a blown up jpeg

I am just having some problems with a logo. I can't figure out how to get rid of all of the pixels and sharpen the image. This logo is going to be used on staff t-shirts for a canoe and kayak kids camp in Toronto. The owner likes to cut corners with a lot of aspects of the company and has sent off the image to someone he knew and they just traced the image and made a half assed copy of it in paint. I want to do this right and have a decent logo for the instructors but I don't have enough experience with Photoshop to do it well. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Help with getting rid of pixels on a blown up

this is a perfect project for the pen tool in photoshop or illustrator, the type can be easily reproduced with a similar font...

Re: Help with getting rid of pixels on a blown up

Kayak, you can't really fix what you have. The quality is too poor. The image has been very degraded. As Pixelzombie points out you need to start over using either PS or Illustrator preferably using vector objects and saving the result a high resolution bit mapped images or vector images so it can be printed at high quality. If you have to use jpeg foormat, the resolution should be at least 300 ppi so that you do not get jagged pixelated edges.
Regards, Murray

This really needs to be recreated in Illustrator. This would be a 3 color tee shirt and needs 3 separate printing screens (light blue, dark blue and green). These separations are easily created in Illustrator using spot (PMS) colors. Once done in Illustrator and in vector format it can be resized for any project without losing sharpness.

Re: Help with getting rid of pixels on a blown up

Kayak,
I have reproduced it from the .gif on your website. Sorry I could not spend more time ont it. However, I can send you an editable file (see below). This should be pretty close - probably good enough for t-shirts, just not for hi-end printed material. You can view the thumbnail below to see what you think. I could not find an exact match for the center font. So, the solution is:
- email me by right clicking my name and send me your email;
- I will send you the larger Photoshop file;
- you can edit the text layer and substitute the appropriate font if you locate it;
- you can also reshape any of the paths as you wish (for the kayak and water);
- then resave in the format your t-shirt vendor requires.

Hope this helps !
