    Greetings.

    My intial question was in reference to creating elementary Logos.

    There are tutorials available for Inkscape online for elementary mechanical drawings. Might this be a good place to start?

    If so, can I enlarge an image from the standard 8 1/2"x 11" format to a larger size like 11"/14' or maybe larger?

    Ultimately the goal is to create a logo (of various sizes) and have the option of being able to have it printed to a Canon 9000 printer.

    Thank you for your time and input.

    Inkscape would be a good start...yes

    Learning curve.. yes

    As Noyb says... vector graphics can be set to just about any output size.

    Start with as simple a drawing as possible that incorperates your needs or even simpler so you get the idea of how the various options/technics work.

    I'm wondering if there would be more support here and online if Abobe Illustrator was used.
    The CS2 version is also available for Free

    First, thank you for responding to my inquiries.

    After watching several Youtube vid's, I was becoming intimidated with Inkscape. Fortunately, I kept searching and came across a gentlemen who goes by PhotoAdvanced2 (Inkscape tutorials).

    I can't recommend him highly enough.

    I also can't wait to recommend this forum to others as you were able to alleviate a lot of frustration by answering questions remarkably quickly.

    Thank you again.
