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 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:
- You get the logo with a website
- 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 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.
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.
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.
