Let’s face it. Starting a new business is no easy task. From legal considerations to financial planning, new business owners have a lot to worry about.
One of the most important steps a new business owner must take, and perhaps one of the most overlooked, is obtaining a company logo that is visually compelling and speaks the language of your business. Having a great company logo is the first step to successful business branding.
If you are starting a new business, consider choosing a ready-made logo to save time and money, without sacrificing quality or design.
Some advantages of choosing a ready-made logo:
Choices: One of the best aspects of purchasing a ready-made logo is the amount of choices a new business owner has in terms of logo design. It’s easy to find what you are looking for: Simply browse specific logo categories to find the design that is right for your business. Most companies that offer ready-made logo design give you the opportunity to customize your logo with different fonts, colors and backgrounds. Turnaround time is usually within a few business days, as where commissioned logo design can take up to weeks, especially if you are unsure of what you are looking for.
Pricing: Another fantastic aspect of choosing a ready-made logo is how inexpensive it is to get what you want and what you need. Prices for ready-made logo designs usually range from just $100-200 dollars. In comparison, prices for commissioned logos usually range from $250 and up. Most professional design firms offering ready-made logos will also include complete copyrights transfer upon purchase of your logo.
Professional designs: Most ready-made logo design firms offer professional quality designs as well as years of design experience. Make sure that when purchasing a ready-made logo, you have access to the appropriate professional file formats, including .EPS, .JPG, .GIF, .WMF and .BMP. Having your logo in a number of different file formats will ensure the proper usage of your logo in regards to print media, the Web, etc.
So if you are thinking about starting a business, or have just started one, a professional ready-made logo may be the path to getting your business off to a great start.
