    Nope. No one can give deatiled instructions based on a single sentence.

     

    Basic instructions... add a new stroke via the Appearance panel. Then move that stroke below the other appearance items in the panel.

    If you have raster image in this equattion that protrudes beyond the edge of the art then you need a shape behind it that is the same exact shape and size of the image.

    It is right there in my post.

     

    1. Group the shapes of the logo live type and shapes and all.

     

    2. in the Appearance Panel highlight the group

     

    3. then from the Apopearnce panels flyout select to add an new stroke

     

    4. then drag the new stroke below the contents of the group in the Appreance panel

     

    5.give the new stroke the weight you want and make the color white
