Make Your Own Logo Free Online (3 great free online logo makers)

Whether you have a website, promote affiliate links, offer your own products, or you want to establish yourself as a digital marketer, a logo is what will give your business more credibility. As a professional online entrepreneur, a logo is essential. You can, of course, get it designed at an accessible price, but you can also do it for free. Especially when you’re just starting out and you need to watch your expenses, knowing how to do make your own logo online free will come in quite handy.

So today I will be sharing with you three logo websites that offer free services. I have tried them out as well, and I will give you my honest opinion and rating. I do not earn any commission and I am not signed up for any of them. When I looked for my logo design, I tried out several free online services.

I will let you know here which ones come with a hidden price, which ones work great, and which ones did not impress me that much.

Wix

Wix is known for its free websites, but it also offers free logos. However, you do have to sign up and create a website with them. If you don’t have a website yet, no harm done, then Wix works out perfectly for you, because it is free anyway; but if you already have a website, then that would be a waste of time.

Basically, after you finished creating your logo, Wix offers you two options:

  1. You get the logo with a website
  2. You don’t create a website and just download the logo at a choice of two paid package deals.

So, the word “free” is a little misleading here. Even if you don’t wish to pay, after you have created your logo, you are still asked to create a website, and that means you need to invest more time into doing that.

Although you can start a website in under 60 seconds, getting it up and running takes a little more time and effort. I understand that every platform wants to retain its customers, but since you are led to believe that Wix logo design is free when in fact it turns out not to be that free, my rating is a 7.

Squarespace

Squarespace is a good platform to create a free logo. They offer you the possibility to narrow down your niche to the perfect logo that relates to your business. It allows you to come up with some great designs. There are no hidden upsells or “oops, your logo is not free after all” (don’t we all hate that?). You can download your end result for free.

I used it once and received a beautiful logo design. The second time I tried to create a logo, I was prompted to create a website, though. I contacted the helpdesk and they immediately provided me with a link to create another logo. Their response time and the instant solution was excellent. So, my rating for Squarespace is still an outstanding 9.5.

Hatchful

That one was surprisingly good. It gives you several options to choose from, and it narrows your logo design down to your particular niche, asking you to indicate what sector your logo is for (health, marketing, education, etc), and what kind of design you like (classic, natural, modern, colorful, etc).

This will yield a long list of designs to choose from, and many of them look absolutely great. Once you click on a design, you can still edit it. You can adapt the colors, the color combination, and the text type, allowing you to create your desired end result.

Then you can specify what you want to use the logo for, whether it will be for social media, your website, a business card, and so on.

When you agree to download your logo, you will be sent a zip file to your email. This zip file will include your logo files which could be for Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, your website, Linkedin, depending on the preferences you specified before downloading the file.

In conclusion, Hatchful got a well-deserved 10 from me. They offer everything you need for a great logo design without any hidden sign ups or “now you have to buy our logo, haha it wasn’t free after all”. Hatchtful is highly recommended.

Final Thoughts

While my favorite free online logo creator is – as you can tell – Hatchful, I suggest that you try out the other ones as well. Although Hatchful was a perfect fit for me, we are all different and we have different expectations for our logos. Check out Hatchful, by all means, but take a look at Squarespace too. They also offer great service.

  1. Wow! Thank you so much for the recommendations! I need this right now 🙂

    I am going to try the hatchful first and then squarespace.

    Thank you very much for this amazing post and recommendations.

  2. Hi Christine,

    I can tell that you are providing useful tips for your readers who are interested in making their own logos instead of outsourcing the task to others. I have to admit that I don’t know WIX could help you with creating a logo since I thought it’s just like WordPress that we could build our website.

    I knew one thing or two about photoshop where I created my own logo. I like to surf on those websites that allow you to download icons for free, so you can make your logo with Photoshop. Sometimes, I also use Canva for the background pattern or pretty layout designs that Canva is very good at.

    And, thanks for your recommendations, now I have two more shortcuts to make a new logo if I decide to create my 2ne or 3rd website. It will save me lots of time, and this is for sure. Thanks a lot for this article, it’s quite helping.

    Cheers,
    Matt

  3. Thank you so much for this highly informative article, Christine! I literally just discovered Hatchful 30 minutes ago, and you’ve done a review of it and give it a perfect 10/10! If this isn’t confirmation from God that Hatchful and I need to become better acquainted, I don’t know what is! Haha You did an excellent job of describing each company, their pros and cons, and your overall opinion of them. I am definitely taking your remarks to heart! I have saved your site, and will definitely be back! God bless you!

  4. Hi, Christine
    Thank you for this helpful and informative post.
    I wish when I started my blog I’d found your article.

    I can assure you I struggled before I had my logo ready to use.
    And just like Wix, some platforms pretend to be free to use but in the end, you have to pay to download your logo.

    Here it’s not the fact that you pay for it that’s causing the problem, it’s the time wasted thinking you would get it free. You really feel betrayed.

    I’ll take your recommendation into account next time I want to create a logo for my second website.
    Thanks

    1. Hi Sebastian,

      I’m glad this was helpful to you 🙂
      I understand how you can feel betrayed when you are led to believe that something is free and in the end it turns out it is not. I felt the same way when I tried out different websites for free logos.
      Thank you for your comment!

  5. I’m laughing at myself so much right now. I have created a few Wix websites and had no clue that you can create logos with them. Where have I been? Haha

    Even finding out about Wix, I actually decided to create my logo on Hatchful. Which was fairly quick and simple to do which is great. I’m not sure this will be my forever logo, but I really like it! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi Alena,

      Funny, I know 😉 The logo creator on Wix is a surprise since Wix is known for its websites 😉

      I’m glad you gave Hatchful a try. It is indeed simple and quick, and they produce pretty nice logos. 

      Thanks for your comment!

  6. Hi Christine,

    Thank you so much for these recommendations on 3 great free logo makers. I know I can create logos using Wix but I wasn’t sure if it’s free or not. I am so glad I found your post, I’ll definitely give them a try.
    So far, I use Canva to create logos and customize pictures for my website. My husband does show me how to use Adobe Photoshop CS6 but I think it is too complicated for me. I need something that offers me free templates I can modify later based on what I need. I really appreciate your review of Hatchful and Squarespace. I think it never hurts to check them out.

    Cheers,
    Ferra

    1. Hi Ferra,

      Hatchful and Squarespace work very well if you need free templates that you can modify. I’m glad my review was helpful for you.
      Thank you for your comment!

  7. Nice article. I like how you shared so many options. I appreciate that. I will be using your site for more information.
    Thanks for sharing!

  8. Hatchful sounds amazing and just what I need to create a quality logo for my website and for my ads. Have you ever tried Canva? I have used them in the past, as well and have my current designs made there. I will be checking out the Squarespace and Hatchful. Since I already work with Wix (through my day job) and do not care for that platform, I will be skipping them!

    1. Hi Karin,

      Canva is also a great tool for logos. By all means, try out Hatchful and Squarespace. They give you a great selection of templates that you can work with. I love using them both.

      Thank you for your comment!

  9. Hello there! this is an amazing review you have got here. My favorite among them is the Squarespace because it has a better blogging tool and better support than most competitors.

     They offer 100+ flexible templates that fully adapt to mobile devices. Getting used to the platform takes a while due to a few usability issues.

    1. Hi Joy,I’m glad you got to try out Squarespace. They have indeed a lot of flexible templates, you can work on them and come up with great logos.

      Thanks for your comment!
