What is a premade logo?
Today on the blog, we wanted to chat about the basics of premade logos. Premade logos are a fantastic way to put a visual identity in place for your business – they’re quick, and affordable.
A premade logo is a logo that has already been designed for you. They’re meticulously designed, much like our custom pieces, but it’s done waaay ahead of time! We pair stylish fonts, and in many cases, beautiful graphics so that the core of the design is done. All that is left is to replace the placeholder business name with yours!
Premade logos and premade brand kits (see left!) go about the brand process a little backward. Rather than you telling us what you’d like, we design things we know you’ll love and would be a fantastic fit for a variety of business types with the hope that one of these amazing pieces will be the one for you.
Premade logo designs are a bit controversial in the design community, with many designers of the opinion that brand agencies offering premade designs are taking business away from designers that offer custom work. In our experiences, we find that this is not the case. Those that are looking for custom work will invest in custom work. Those that need a less expensive option will look for a less expensive option.
We believe that budding entrepreneurs and boss babes on a budget should have beautiful design available to them, and that every business should have the best possible chance at succeeding.
The result is that you have a gorgeous, functional, effective logo in record time – we send our proofing out the same or next business day. In addition, because all of the time-intensive design work is already completed, we’re able to charge a fraction of the cost of custom work.
Premade logos are a great fit for a lot of different people.
- If you’re considering starting a business, or you’re in the very beginning stages, a premade logo would be a great fit. It would allow you to start off with a strong visual identity to attract a following and build trust in your brand.
- If you’re already an established business, need to revamp your look, but are working with a pretty tight budget, premade logos would be a fantastic fit, as well.
- If you’ve got an event coming up, no logo (or a bad logo!), and you want to make a great first impression, our premade logos are super speedy. We do request that you provide a bit of lead time – we send proofing the same or next business day, but we’d like to allow a little extra time to make sure that you don’t need a font change after seeing your proofing! In most cases, final files are provided within 24-36 hours, if not sooner if you provide equally as speedy responses!
It’s also super easy to build your brand this way. As you realize a need for additional items — like alternate logos, business cards, social media headers, a website, and so on — you can always come back. We love repeat clients, and would be thrilled to help you build a brand over time!
