Choose a Logo Generator
One hurdle you may face when setting up your eCommerce website is trying to design a logo. With the easy to use templates and the ability to use your own photographs for stock, you can get your business started without much trouble. However, logos need to be completely unique and you need to have a reasonable level of graphic design skills if you are going to have your own, eye-catching logo. You could go for the minimalist approach and simply write the logo in Times New Roman and use that; this does look professional and isn't a bad choice. However, a very minimalist logo will not remain with the customer after they leave your site and some businesses, for example ones which sell children’s toys, are going to require a much more distinct logo.
So, if you don't have the graphic design skills, but need a distinctive logo, what are you going to do? Well, you could hire the talents of a graphic designer, as there are always lots of budding young graphic designers around, but you could also use a logo generator. While logo generators may not give you complete freedom, you can use them to get quite nice logos. I'm going to talk about a couple of the best logo generators and hopefully one of them may be of use to you.
One possibility is Hipster Logo Generator. The Hipster Logo Generator is a very fun and easy to use tool which is also completely free (though you can get additional features for a premium).You can play around with boarders, stripes, small images and whatever else. All the logos are produced in black and white, which is good, because one of the rules of creating logos is that you need it to look good in black and white as well as in full colour. There's a huge range of possibilities with the Hipster Logo Generator and you shouldn't be too worried about producing something that looks very similar to somebody else's logo. Since you don't even need to sign up to give it a try, you should definitely give Hipster Logo Generator a chance.
For a slightly fancier service, you could try the Graphic Springs logo maker which gives you a greater deal of control than the Hipster Logo Generator, but only lets you design the logo for free; to download and take it, you must pay. But Graphic Springs can provide you with a very professional looking logo which combines text with a small graphic and allows you to use colour as you please. Though of course, you should try setting it to black and white, just to make sure it still looks good without the colour. The size of the text is totally within your control and there is a large selection of graphics and images to combine. It all uses a very simple drag and drop interface too, so you can be sure that you're getting it to look exactly as you wanted it to.
So hopefully that will have helped you in your quest to find a good logo. Maybe you've been doing fine without anything fancy for a while, but doing something like introducing a new logo is a good way to try and get people excited about your business and is the kind of thing you can make a fuss of over social media. If you've not even got your website yet, let alone the logo, then sign up to Sellr right away! It's free and could turn out to be a very wise decision.
