I'm looking at the template from our printer. They want a 1417 x 1417
pixel (4.723 x 4.723 inches) image at 300 dpi. I can make that from the
psd or xcf but both of those seem to be missing the shadow behind the
OSGeo logo that makes it pop. We also realized that it should probably
say OSGeo Live like the cover art. It's a bigger deal for the North
American printing because we're only using the disc label for cost
saving reasons.

I'm also planning to add the url http://live.osgeo.org under the logo.

Do you have time to make these changes or can you provide the updated
psd/xcf? Maybe I'm just missing something like a filter for the logo
since I don't have Photoshop and just have GIMP?

Working on it right now so we can get the order in.
