Like my new logo/banner?
It cost me only $14 USD and took minutes to prepare.
2 Simple Steps:
1. Find a logo at any of the logo template stores online. You can buy a logo/graphic for anywhere from $14 – 50 and more, depending on what you want.
Note: You can purchase logos in 2 ways:
Exclusive – these logos are sold only once and then removed from the catalog, so you will be the only person with this logo. This is the more expensive option, usually $75+ (which is still reasonable compared to actually hiring a graphic designer)
Non-exclusive – logos are sold multiple times for a lesser price (ie: my $14 logo is non-exclusive)
2. Customize the logo for your needs
You will need a program such as Photoshop or Fireworks to do this – add your company name, maybe tweak the colors a bit. Make it your own.
If you aren’t graphic savvy you can get someone to customize your new logo for a reasonable price. The website where you purchased the logo may offer customization. I also recommend Dan Roberge at firstname.lastname@example.org.
