“How do I buy a logo for my business?”
A lot of people ask this question every day and don’t know where to start. Some know where to start, but don’t have the funds to do so. There are a ton of options out there. Everything from custom logos made by a graphic designer that you pay to create specifically for your brand to using an on demand freelance site to find someone who can create it for your quickly. Premade logos are a great option for someone who isn’t looking to spend a ton of money and would like a logo done within a few days.
“What is a premade logo?”
A premade logo, or off the shelf logo, is a design that isn’t necessarily tailor-made for your brand, but is a fraction of the price of a custom logo. Lots of bloggers, photographer, content creators, and small businesses use premade logos, either for a permanent or temporary solution.
“Why should I choose a ready-made logo over a custom one?”
Custom logos and premade logos can coexist and don’t necessarily constitute an “either/or” situation. You can have a photography business and still use a premade logo for things like watermarks! You can have a blog and use an off the shelf logo for things like email signatures. “Premade logo” is just what these designs are commonly called: a design that can be easily customized, but have very little (sometimes no) customization and/or graphics.
“What else can I use a premade logo for?”
“What are the drawbacks of premade logos?”
Premade logos are generally not unique. More established premade logo designers will have sold some of their designs countless times and you may run across them in your own industry. Some people think that this could be detrimental to your branding, but do recommend that you use some sort of logo when you launch your business, blog, or brand. Again, premade logos do not have to be a permanent solutions, but, if you don’t have the means to create a logo on your own, they’re a smart investment in obtaining a visual aspect for your brand.
“I’m ready to purchase one of your premade logos for sale. How do I get started?”
Before we start talking about the process, I want to thank you for choosing to purchase from me. There are a lot of talented creators out there, and I’m appreciative and grateful that you chose Tangible Designs.
First, go ahead and browse through my logos. A good number of them have different color options, from one and two color options, to different amounts of gold foil on them. If you have something different in mind with the coloring (especially when it comes to foil or glitter), please contact me prior to making your purchase. When you’ve decided on a premade logo, I encourage you to check my Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram to see if there are any current coupon or discount codes. Once you’ve purchased your logo, you should receive an email within 24 hours of either a form that will ask you some information about the wording and coloring of the logo, or just an email from me doing the same. My general turnaround time is 3-5 days, but I can usually get them done the same day so long as I’m able to communicate with you in a timely manner or if the color options you’ve chosen are clear. If you don’t know what colors you’d like, let me know in the form or email and I can help you with that!
“I found a logo I like, but I’d like it a little more customized than the options presented. What should I do?”
Please contact me using either this form or Facebook messenger prior to purchasing your logo and let’s talk. I’d love you help you make one of my logos the way you want it. Note that there may be an increase in price contingent on the amount of customization of the premade logo.
“I’m a creator and I’d like to use one of your designs for my client. Is that okay?”
It absolutely is! The only thing that I ask is that I receive credit anytime you share the your creation that includes any design you’ve purchased from me on social media. This is usually as simple as tagging me in the design.
“Is there anything you need from me?”
The only thing I ask of you is that I can add your design to my portfolio that is coming soon. I will link to your site or social media platform from the image I post on my page. Just let me know when you start to use it so I can add it!
Thank you so much for reading about premade logos and I hope to work with you soon!
