    I think using “good” to describe these logos is a stretch. You can create/design a “passable” logo for not much money using an online tool. However, good logos take some design skills and talent. Am I biased because I’m a designer? I most certainly am, however I’m smart enough to know that my background in web design doesn’t translate to designing logos. From the few attempts I have made, good logo design is very time consuming and challenging. The standard I hold logos to is that they should say something about your business and more importantly set you apart. Some of these web services can produce logos for a fair price, but they won’t stand out against your competitiors using clipart.

    Hi Erik

    Thanks for sharing your perspective. I think that you raise a good point – a logo is extremely important and to build something good takes time and effort (large companies spend millions on it). I agree that using a professional and investing time and effort will get you the best result. Thanks again for sharing your thoughts.

    I paid 50 Dollar Logo, and actually got a few revisions from them. Then, they stopped making the requested changes and just started sending any ol’ thing they felt like. Next, they stopped answering emails. When I requested a refund per their 100% money-back guarantee, I was told it would take 21 days. A month later, in response to my email asking about the status of my refund, I was told they would get back to me. Instead, they continue to flatly ignore my emails, have never gotten back to me, and now are also blowing me off on their online chat option. I had been referred to this service by a satisfied customer, but now all I can think is SCAM! Please do not refer people to this business, which has happily taken my $50 but not been able to produce a satisfactory logo for me, and now has scammed me out of my refund.

    Thanks for sharing your experience. I think that the reality is that you get what you pay for. If you are only paying $50 you probably won’t get the best customer service and most original or well thought out logo design. While there are cheap options they probably won’t get you the best results.

    Personally, I learned some basic photoshop and illustrator skills and often start with a new font and buy some graphics from sites like istock.

    One other thought – in many cases your font/text and color scheme can serve as a logo for online uses – think of google, yahoo, etc.

    Cheap logos are great for small stuff, but for a semi-serious company I wouldn’t go for the 50 bucks company.

    Hired 50 Dollar Logo to design a logo and a business card for me. I paid them $79 and started receiving terrible logos. I didn’t like any of them. You could tell that they were just cutting and pasting from some really bad gallery. Finally I picked a logo, even though I really didn’t care for it and they sent me the logo in several formats. All of the logos were extremely low resolution. I couldn’t use any of the formats for anything. I tried to use the logo for letterhead, faxes, emails, etc, and the quality was so poor that the logo wasn’t even readable. I had several tech support people look at it (not 50 dollar logo) and they said that the logo was too low res. I contacted 50 dollar logo and they tried to fix it, but could not. THEY SENT ME THREE EMAILS that said they will give me my money back, and they never did. Their design work is crap, they are extremely low tech and low res, and they are crooks.

    No offense intended, but how naive do you have to be to expect individual attention and custom revisions for $50? I don’t condone the failure to refund money under any circumstances, of course. If anybody could actually deliver quality unique logos for $50, he’d be talented enough to charge hundreds more.

    I think those logos are really nice considering they were $5. These gigs would be especially useful for those that need to brand more than one site as this is so budget friendly.

    Great write up, thank you.
