Question regarding "Stroke" Option in Illustrator

Recommended Posts

I just have a question for you guys, in AI, I'm making a logo, and I just have a question what you do to stroke the logos? I can use the stroke function, but that doesn't give you a clead stroke, like points will be rounded. Well do you guys basically just go around the logo with the pen tool, or is there another way to stroke a logo?

Thanks for any help

I know Cardinals is over done, but it's the name of my hockey team. This is my second logo, ever, and what do you think? I'm thinking I need to do something to the eye, but not sure what would look best. BTW I just went over it with the pen tool, for the outlines/strokes

If the object is text or numbers:

Select object

Go to object-expand, do it.

go to object-path-offset path, do it

recolor as necessary

if the object is an object

Select object

Take the black outer shape, copy and paste behind (apple or ctrl +b ). Then increase the strok to the desired thickness. I don't understand why the gray stroke is so sloppy on your cardinal. Did you do it this way? The only problem with "offset stroke" is that it is hard to adjust while you are looking at it. You have to type in an offset value and hope it's right. ith strokes you can at least increase or decrease to your liking.
