Pre-Made Logo Design

If you are new to buying pre-made logos online or like more clarifications on our logo design process, please review the following frequently asked questions. Please also review the Ordering Instructions before placing an order.

Q1. What is a pre-made logo?
A1. A pre-made logo is a logo design concept that's previously created un-selected and un-used in other projects, or design concept inspired by popular logo design trends. We ask you to send us the logo you like to order first because the design you found on Pinterest or on our blog may have been sold exclusively to another client, therefore no longer available for purchase. A pre-made logo that's available for purchase may be previously sold and surely to be re-sold again in the future. Think of a premade logo design like a mass-market product that is not exclusive (ex. a T-shirt bought at H & M). Pre-made logos are great for website logo, blog logo or e-commerce website and small business logo. It's affordable and fast - if you place an order before 3pm Paris local time (M-F) you could receive the logo files on the same day. It's important to know pre-made logos are sold AS IS - there is no customization included with a Pre-made Logo purchase. 

Q2. How do I customize a pre-made logo if I wish to?
A2. While there is no customization with a premade logo purchase - pre-made logo designs can also be a good starting point for a custom logo design project if it's similar to what you are looking for. Generally we recommend Custom Logo Design packages instead of customizing a premade logo so we will work with you with a full creative process and create a logo for you from scratch. However if you are quite certain about the changes you like to make and those changes are minor, you may do so with Add-On purchase.

Some minor changes you can make easily by purchasing Add-on services -
* Font change
* Color of font (text) change
* Color of the entire logo change (restrictions apply)

For more on Add-on Services>

Alternatively you can create a more unique logo based on a pre-made logo design concept with Concept Logo Design (from €499 euros) which explores a few variations of a pre-made design concept for you to choose from.

Q3. How many revisions are included for a pre-made logo purchase?
A3. One revision is included (Basic Option @ €49 euros). Because the only customizable part in a premade logo is the business name, it's unlikely you will need more than one revision. If you order the add-on for the font, or color of the text change, we recommend Premium Option for TWO revisions at €69 euros. To make additional changes, you may purchase Add-on services during the process.

Q4. What kind of files will I receive for a pre-made logo purchase?
A4. PDF, PNG and JPG (all 300 DPI) for Basic Option. The original source file (Photoshop or Illustrator) is included for Premium Option and Custom Design Packages only. If you like to receive the original source files at a later time, you may purchase Add-on for Extra Files.

Q5. Can I use the files for business cards and my website?
A5. You can use the logo files for everything, print or web. 

Q6. Can I purchase a pre-made (or custom) logo design for a client?
A6. No. We prefer to communicate and work directly with the person who is approving design and ultimately owning and using the logo. Any purchase at The Paris Studio grants the buyer the right to use the design and this right to use is NOT transferrable to any third partyIf you are a designer or developer working on a project for a client, please inform your client to purchase the design directly from The Paris Studio. Please review our Store Policies or contact us with any questions.

Q7. What is OOAK Logo Design and how is it different than other pre-made logos?
A7. An OOAK (one of a kind) logo is a pre-made logo that's has not yet been sold and will only be sold once. If you purchase an OOAK Logo it will be removed from the collection so it will not be sold again. If you request a change in the OOAK logo design, however, your customized logo purchase will be considered a different/new design and will not retire the OOAK logo from our collection. Please contact me with any questions.

Q8. How many versions of the final logo files would I receive? What if I need additional versions of the logo, for example watermark or black and white version of the logo?
A8. You receive ONE set of files (PDF, PNG and JPG) for ONE version of the final/selected logo design for a pre-made logo purchase. For Premium Option or any custom design logo packages, the source file (in PSD, or AI/EPS) can be provided. If you need additional versions of the logo such as watermark (logo reversed in white), a second version of the logo in a different color (or black and white), you may purchase addition files with Add-on services.

Q9. Do I receive all the examples shown in a pre-made logo design listing?
A9. No, you receive only one version of the pre-made logo design. We sometimes showcase additional designs as variations of the same pre-made logo design (in color, font or motif) for you to choose from. Please choose one design when you place your order.

Q10. How is Concept Logo Design different from Custom Logo Design packages?
A10. Concept Logo Design is created to accommodate those who like to customize a pre-made logo design concept. With Concept Logo Design we explore a concept of an existing pre-made logo design to create variations of a single design concept, while Custom Logo Design package provides a more in-depth process to explore multiple concepts to come up with a logo design based on your business and creative requirements.
