Our logo recommendations

  • Keep it simple! A simple design with a clear and concise message will help customers in recalling your business and building loyalty.
  • Make it unique! Not only will your business stand out, but your competitors will struggle to copy or counterfeit the design!
  • Mobile and media friendly! Ensure the logo will work across different mediums including print, online, embroidery and signage. 
  • Ensure it's scalable! The logo may need to be resized for promotion and design purposes. A more complex design will result in details being lost when resized. 
  • Make your logo visible! Attach the logo on invoices, signatures, business cards, stationery, advertising and your website!

  • To resize the image by a percentage, choose “percent” from the pop-up menu next to the Width and Height fields, and enter the percentage in those fields.
  • To ensure that the image keeps its original proportions, select “Scale proportionally.”
  • To make the image’s dimensions smaller without losing any detail, deselect “Resample image” before changing the width or height.
