    That would be fantastic. The original one is 3 1/2" X 5" I will download the Xara trial later today and play around with it.
    Thank you so much.

    Here you go. I'm guessing that the mark to the left of the large "S" is the "" registered trade mark.
    Attached are the .xar file and a .pdf version should you require it.

    You can, but it won't look brand new.
    I hope you have a bigger version of this, it makes life easier. (more pixels are better)

    In PSP, Promote the Background layer of the image.
    Select All (Ctrl + A)
    Selections>Modify>Select Color Range
    Tolerance 50
    Softness 90
    Subtract color range ticked.

    First use the default colour, ie white.
    Click OK.
    Then Selections>Invert (Ctrl+Shift+I)
    Hit Delete.
    Select None (Ctrl+D)

    That gets rid of the grubby white background.

    Do the above again and sample the brown, using the medium brown to start with is best (don't start with the dark brown or some of the black disappears.
    The result is now a bit light.
    Duplicate the Layer in the Layers Palette, a few times might be necessary, I did 4. This brings back a bit of the browns, so do the above again.
    New Raster Layer>fill with white>drag the layer below the text layer. Merge All.

    Click image for larger version.

    Fascinating..
    Why ask in a Paint Shop Pro forum, to do something in Xara?
    I too use Xara, but this is PSP .

    Just curious.

    The OP didn't mention Xara. Bob just chose to do it using Xara.

    It could also be done in PSP, using the vector tools, although Xara's tools are a lot easier.
    PSP's vector tools haven't been touched since the Jasc days.

    The original question was how to clean the image, which is what I did.
    Bob's new version looks a lot better, but that wasn't the question.

    Bob was being kind. Bob just went ahead and did it using Xara.

    Grenou, your solution and explanation is great.

    I don't think the OP really cares much how it was done, provided a clean label comes out the other end.

    Strictly speaking, providing complete solutions has never been the ethos of TG, but rather to help people do things for themselves, but I guess the OP is happy. TG would be a poorer place if this is all we did - provide the end product.
