One of the biggest investments you will make into your business is your companies overall brands look. One of the most important aspects of this will be your logo. There is a multitude of ways to have your business be represented by your logo. As you can tell by the various companies, I have launched I prefer word base logos. I love the simplicity of a great font paired with the right color. In addition to that, you can tell I have a love affair with scripted font.
Today, I want to share three great resources for those looking to create a logo for their business, but on a tight budget of $100 or less. To note, all my logos were less than $50, and I purchased the fonts myself. With Business Bestie the gold foil was acquired too, to make the pairing perfect verse just going with a HEX code.
A couple of, years ago I was introduced to the Tailor Made brand, and I have shared with numerous people. Tailor Brand focuses on instant logo design made simple for you to download immediately. They have minimal cost, and you can design your logo within 3 minutes or less. They can do this by utilizing an algorithm that helps design your dream logo based on the selection you make as you take their step by step program.

I love that I can support creative business owners I would never know of by searching their website. Recently, more and more people have been asking me where to purchase particular style logos for their new business or rebranding. Creative Market has been my go to place for them.

If you are not in love with the word or design you created on Tailor Made, but loving fonts or design you purchased from Creative Market you can hire someone off of Fiverr to create it for you.
