Getting Logo and Business Cards

This is where you will require some assistance from a graphics designer. But before reaching out to one, you should reflect on a few things:

  • Logo and business cards
    • What are your brand colors?
    • What is your tagline?  Note: Some include this on their logo and/or business card, while others have different versions with/without it.
  • Logo
    • Where do you plan to use the logo (i.e. website, business cards, flyers, etc.)?
    • Do you need multiple variations of the logo (i.e. layouts, color options for dark vs. light backgrounds, etc.)?
    • Examples of other logos that you like (or detailed description).
  • Business Cards
    • What information do you want to include on the card?
    • Examples of other business cards that you like (or detailed description).

Once you decide on all of the items above, you would hand this information over to a graphics designer.  It’s recommended to start with the logo first and then move to the business card afterwards.  However, here are a few considerations to keep in mind with the selected graphics designer:

  • How many revisions do they allow?
  • Can they provide the logo with a transparent background? This is important as it allows it to go over any background without a box around it.
  • Can they provide the source file?  Typically, graphics are delivered as .jpg or .png files; however, we highly recommend that you obtain the source file that they created it in such as Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop.  This way you have the ability to modify it in the future if needed or have another designer modify it.
  • Check other factors such as price and timing as there could be a huge range for this.
