Mimi one way to do this is to save the .svg file as a .png file and then open it in something like paint, paintshop pro and then save as a .jpg.

What I do is:
Open the file in Internet Explorer, right click on the image and save as - select [filename].png and save.

Once saved you can either print it as is, or open it in Paint and print or save as a jpeg.

Just be aware, once you change it from a svg or png, you will lose the transparency (backgorund) of the image.

Hope that helps
