File extentions

Hi I have a software program for creating invitation cards etc. When I save it the extention is .sig. This is a problem because when I send it in an email no one can open it. So I believe I need a file coverter software program? I have no idea which one to use. Im using xp. Hope someone can help. Thanks

The difficulty is

In reply to: File extentions

that if this .sig file extension is used exclusively by the software developers who created your invitation card creator software, then there is unlikely to be any conversion software available.

You didn't say what software you are using, but the File Extension guide here; lists only one use of the .sig file extension by Broderbund.

Such software is normally only used to 'print' invitation cards. Those cards are then sent out, (postal), or given by hand, and not through emails.

You can print the card to .pdf (by installing a pdf-printer like pdf995 or cutepdf), then attach the pdf to an email.
Most people will be able to read a pdf-file, because they installed the reader from Adobe or Foxit software.

Thanks for your help. Not sure where you find the pdf suggestions you gave me. To the other response regarding this same subject. Yes it is broderband sp? Funny thing is they do have an email option. Kinda strange that you can send it but nobody can open it. Very frustating. Thanks to all.
