Looking for Corel Expert and maybe a large favor

I'm a forum regular, but I spend most of my time in the turning forum.

I've been commissioned by my wife to make a pepper mill that looks like a wine bottle. It will be a gift for her boss, a wine aficionado.

I plan to have the image of the label laser etched into the wine bottle/peppermill. The etching guy say he can do the best job if I can deliver him the copy in Corel format. Naturally, I want the best possible job, so I'm trying to find a way to deliver the copy in Corel. The label seems pretty straight forward; although one of the fonts is a little unusual it's mostly just black lettering on a white background.

So, I'm looking for help from a Corel expert and maybe a favor to make the label for me in Corel or convert it to Corel and ship it to me in electronic format. Honestly, I don't know enough about it to know if this is a huge favor or not, but I do know I'd be hugely appreciative.

Any guidance is greatly appreciated.

What are you using to design the label, he should be able to open most files in CorelDraw, seems like an unnecessary step sending your file to someone to convert it.

I don't know what "Corel format" is. There are other programs similar to CorelDraw such as PaintShop, Photoshop, and Photoshop Elements (this example) that allow the user to save their work in various formats.

I think it would help if you could get more info.

What is the label going to look like?

CorelDraw is not like Photoshop etc. Corel's PhotoPaint is their photo editing software. CorelDraw is what the name implies -- a drawing package. It's very powerful, and is marketed to graphic artists. At one time it was the industry standard -- may still be. Quickstep, I used CorelDraw a lot back in my working days. I am not a CorelDraw expert by any means. However, if you can send me something to indicate exactly what you want, I might be able to help. Terry

I work with CorelDRAW everyday. Send me a personal message and we can discuss what you need.
