Logo Design

How does copyrighting my chosen logo work?


You must copyright, register, trademark, your business on your own. I am providing the design. I can add a TM, R, or C on your logo but this will not mean that it is technically registered. Check out USPTO.gov All rights belong to you when given your logo, but I do reserve the right to use it for my portfolio, and for marketing uses. No other person will have the same logo as you.




How many proofs will I receive to choose from?


You will receive 3 logo concepts to choose from with a custom logo. The base price covers 1 logo design. You will receive multiple variation options within each concept, which you can choose to add on for $30 each as simple variations/submarks. If you are choosing more than one concept, the fee will be $50 each as full variations. You will receive 2 concepts if you're purchasing your logo during a SALE or if your logo is from a sketch/revised logo.




How many revisions can I make to my chosen concept(s)


2 revision rounds are free to your chosen proof. Beyond that, extra revision rounds are $10 each. You can pay for as many as you like until the logo(s) is perfect for you!




How long do revisions take?


Revisions can take anywhere from 1-7 business days, depending on the complexity and amount of adjustments needed. After all revisions are made, the design(s) is finalized and the remaining balance is paid, the files will be released to you via email within 24 hours.




Is there a time frame in which I have to confirm revisions or finalization of my logo?


After receiving your logo proofs through email, your order will be marked as Important/Priority for the next 7 days. You will receive a feedback form to fill out with your requested revisions. If you reach out after those initial 7 days about revisions, revisions are liable to take longer, as the next pending orders will be prioritized at that time. A strict schedule is followed for design work, so that current projects can be prioritized before new projects are taken. Your logo does not have to be completed in that 7 day timeline, as branding can definitely take time; that is just the timespan in which your project is in its priority stage. If contact ceases for 30 days or more, your project will be archived. A $15 archive fee will be charged to continue after that timeframe.




Should I get a glitter logo?


If you've read the blog post, https://www.artishdesign.com/post/why-most-logos-make-me-cringe you understand how glitter can impact the professionalism of your branding. Although glittery and blinged out logos are not preferred, you can still get a concept made to choose from, with my honest opinion in the concept slideshow as well as options within that concept that I think are more professional It is also suggested that you add on variations without glitter, to have that variety.




What are logo variations?


Logo variations are alternative logos that you can purchase to compliment your "main logo". Submarks, simple variations and full variations are offered. You will receive multiple variations within each concept when receiving your proofs, you can choose those to add on, or let me know if you already have an idea for your variation(s). Variations are highly recommended, as your full logo may not fit with everything or on everything. It is ideal to have 2-3 variations that can be used on different mediums to not only give variety, but also to have that more simple and professional option. Variation are highly recommended, as your full logo may not fit with everything or on everything. It is ideal to have 2-3 variations that can be used on different mediums to not only give variety, but also to have that more simple and professional option. Simple variation:
One of the variations within your chosen concept • Aspects of the logo subtracted • 1-3 aspects rearranged Full variation:
Adding another concept • Design that has another look/concept as your main/chosen logo Submark:
A submark is a simplified version of your logo, usually is a mark, symbol, a few letters, etc.
(i.e.) Think of Nike's logo. They have the word "NIKE" as well as the stripe. The stripe can be used by itself and still be identified with the Nike brand Color Variation
A variation of your logo, filled with 1-2 solid color(s). This is HIGHLY recommended for all logo types. I recommend to get a white and black (or other dark and light color) variation, for watermarking on photos. Think of a pink, grey, gold, and blue logo on top of a busy photo. Black or white will look better and be easier to see. • Solid Color Variations are $15 each
• Simple variations and submarks are $30
• Full variations are $50 each
• Variations with a new character are $70
• Another full logo is $10 off.

This is also the option for those who would like a blog, news or event website.

You will connect your own premium plan, domain name, payment methods, etc. I can do these things for you for a $40 fee





Marketing

What is the difference between e-alerts and e-flyers?


Business owners nowadays have a social media page in which they advertise their work. Alerts are shoutout styled graphics, consisting of 10 or less words. For example, "SALE!" "NEW PRODUCT ALERT!" "50% OFF". An e-flyer is more informative, showcasing information, events, sales and more. For example, if someone would like to post a flyer that is showcasing their new bundle hair deals. Their flyer includes prices, lengths of hair, a sale and the name of their company.

Banners

How do I hang a vinyl banner?


Vinyl banners have grommet holes in the tops and bottoms of the banner. The spot that you are hanging your banner plays a part in what you should use to hang It. Consider the weight of banner as well when using items to hang them • Nylon rope • Bungee cords • Suction Cups and Hooks • Zip ties • Hanging clips • Heavy clamps (Backdrops come with heavy clamps) • Velcro strips/Command Strips (Would not recommend for outdoor banners) - Table banners (i.e. at vendor events), can generally be used with command strips so long as the weight labeled on the command strip, says that It can hold that your banner is (13 oz, 15, 18) • For a permanent placement, you could have it screwed into your surface with heavier duty tools/applications > Reference this video to see how it is done. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhXjz-odSuM You can ask for a pole sleeve instead of/or as well as grommets, just type that into your checkout notes. This is used when you are putting the banner through a pole, like a backdrop stand. * Artish Design is not responsible for the hanging of banners * * Artish Design does not provide for the extra items/tools needed to hang banners *




Do you hang banners?
