If you are new to buying pre-made logos online or need 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 template-based logo design concept that's created to be sold more than once. Except for OOAK Logo Designs, all template-based pre-made logos available for purchase may have been previously sold and 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 weekday before 5pm Paris local time 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 included with a premade logo purchase - pre-made logo designs are a good starting point for a custom logo design project. Generally we recommend Custom Logo Design and work in a full creative process to create a logo just for you and completely from scratch. If there is a pre-made logo that's almost perfect but needing a tweak, our Concept Logo Design is perfect for creating a semi-custom logo based on a pre-made logo concept. If you have only a minor change to make in a pre-made logo design, you may do so with Add-On purchase.
Some minor changes you can make easily by purchasing Add-on services -
* Font replacement
* Color of font (text) replacement
* Color of the entire logo replacement (restrictions apply)
Q3. How many revisions are included for a pre-made logo purchase?
A3. One revision is included (Basic Option). Because the only customizable part in a pre-made logo is the business name, it's unlikely you will need more than one revision. If you order Add-on service for the font, or color of the text replacement, we recommend Premium Option with TWO revisions. You may also purchase Add-on services during the process for additional changes.
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 only included for Premium Option and Custom Design Packages. 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 all aspects of your business marketing, print or web. Please note when you purchase a pre-made logo, you are granted the "right to use" for the final assets you receive and you may not re-sell or transfer the assets to anyone else. Please review our Store Policies or contact us with any questions.
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 party. If you are a designer or developer working on a project with 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 created to be sold only once and to a single client. If you like to create a logo based on one of our OOAK logo designs, your customized logo design may be considered a different/new design and will not retire the OOAK logo from our collection.
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 with your 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 additional 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 best for creating a logo based on 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 one single design concept, while Custom Logo Design package provides a more in-depth process to explore multiple concepts based on your business and creative requirements.

In order to use the file to create your own logo, you need both the knowledge and the program to open the file you purchase. If you like a certain design in multiple formats, or a format that's not listed, please contact us for a custom order.
Q2. Can you help me with the DIY Logo purchase?
A2. There is no service included when you purchase an INSTANT DOWNLOAD product at The Paris Studio.

Q3. Can I purchase an INSTANT DOWNLOAD logo design for a client?
A3. No. 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 party. If 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.
Q4. Do I receive the font used in the DIY Logo Download?
A4. No. Fonts are not included in ANY logo purchase and can not be distributed freely due to Intellectual Property Laws. The name of the example font used IS included in the file - which are free fonts you can download from the web. Example of fonts used in a DIY Logo Download is only a suggestion - obviously you may use any font you own or prefer. There is no paid font used for DIY Logo Download Designs. If you like to purchase a DIY Logo Design as a pre-made logo instead, we offer a one time change of font upgrade to a professionally designed commercial font in our font collection.
Q5. Can I re-sell or use the DIY Logo Download for my clients or projects?
A5. No. DIY Logo Download is for personal or a one-time small business use (as the buyer's own business logo) only and the right to use is granted to the buyer only, not transferable to any third party. There is no commercial use or resale allowed.

Q4. I need to print my logo on a large size banner or commercial/retail sign, what format do I need?
A4. Generally, if you need to print or use the logo in large size (larger than paper stationery or business card use), it's recommended you purchase and/or choose a logo that can be / is vector format. Logo Designs that are done in Photoshop such as watercolor or gold foil texture, are not suitable for printing in large size such as commercial store signs or banners. If Vector is a MUST for your logo please check out the Vector section and consult with us before making a purchase so we can help you get what you need.
