When you first start brainstorming about your new business, you probably want to find a unique way to display your company image. For many small businesses, a custom logo is the first step in this process.
If outsourcing your logo design is not in your budget, there are plenty of options on the Internet for any budget. We want to advise you, though, that some of the “free” sites are free to create, but you have to pay to download the logo.
If your small business does not have the manpower or software to create your own logo, these 8 web-based logo design tools might be the best option. For more options, visit Small Business Trends for their top 33 choices for logo design.
