Here’s a trick for updating the file format of your old logos and other artwork to a more modern format such as PDF:
Adobe Illustrator has a script that will batch-convert them for you! Just open them all in Illustrator (you can drag them all onto Illustrator’s icon), and then choose File> Scripts> SaveDocAsPDF. All the open Illustrator documents will then be saved using your current PDF export settings.
