The gimp is only currently usefull for web graphics. Until it can
comprehend CMYK colour space it is not going to be able to do print
graphics. ( RGB and CMYK colour spaces don't fully overlap... there are
some colours you can't just convert and they're sure to be the ones you're
wanting to use :). The rough I did was using corel draw in a winos2 VDM
for which I make no apology, the tools to make pro level graphics do not
exist in the linux world AFAIK (though I'd be happy to hear different :).
The other problem with gimp is that it's a bitmap editor, for logos and
such vector editors (like corel draw) are much better :).
