Kanji for "shodan"

Hi!

Does anybody have the kanji for "shodan" in a graphics format other than Postscript? And, if so, could I get it?

Thanks!

Bob

Try here: http://www.aikiweb.com/language/ranks_k.html

They are .gif.

Also I don't have other graphics, but these unicode kanji will scale up in Word.

If you are looking for calligraphic images that may be harder to come by...

Cordially,

If you have a shodan certificate, just scan it, and photoshop it.

Re: Kanji for "shodan"

That option is not available for me, but thanks. (Referring to the scanning.) I appreciate the thought, though.

Take care!

Bob

Re: Kanji for "shodan"

I did download the "gif" files, but I also downloaded the EPS files, and Ghostscript/Ghostview. That let me convert the EPS files to JPG files, and gave good quality characters.

Thanks for the suggestions, and have a great day!

Bob
