I have finished my artwork in Illustrator. It is a logo for my company. It is a horizontal rectangle. I am ready for exporting it so I can use it as part of the header in my Word template. I have got some questions to the process.
Currently the document is 512 x 512 points. However the logo is a rectangular shape, it is placed in the center. Should I create another document with the exact dimensions of the shape so there are no space on the sides before exporting?
And should I export it as a PDF and use that in the Word template? Or as PNG?
I tried exporting the logo as a 512 x 512 point PDF (with no background) but when I open it in Word it shows with the spaces on the side. So how would I deal with this the correct way?
