How Much Does A Website Logo Cost To Get Made?

A logo for a business is very important. Often, a lot of customers are drawn to logos because they are all unique in their own way, symbolize the business and even make the business recognizable. If you don’t have a logo, your business may seem like a scam, or even non-professional.

If you want to have a website logo made for your business, there are a lot of things that you need to consider in terms of its cost.

Think of it this way, each logo design is unique and as such, prices may vary. In fact, graphic designers utilize various methods to determine how much a logo costs to be created. The three most common methods for determining a logo’s price includes the hourly rate, fixed price, and package rates.

A lot of graphic designers charge by the number of hours spent on designing a website logo. When outsourced overseas, the hourly rate can cost around $8. However, when you hire a highly skilled graphic artist or consultant, the price could reach up to $500 per hour. Depending on your budget, just make sure that you hire the logo designer who will be worth the amount they charge you. You can do some research online or simply ask people around such as past clients just to give you a sort of feedback or opinion regarding the designer you want to hire.

Now, some graphic design companies usually have a fixed price for their website logos. The price may vary depending on the design and other related factors. Before you choose a design, just make sure you have read the requirements and terms first before you embark on the project. Also make sure that you have a contract or agreement signed by both parties. Usually, professional design firm charges $1,000-$5,000. If you get an independent agency, is cheaper by almost half the rate of professional agencies. If you hire a firm offshore, the fixed rate ranges from $100-$250.

In terms of logo packages, some graphic design firms usually charge cheaper if pre-made packages are availed. With this package, you can easily request the designer to customize the design with an additional charge of course. Just look for affordable logo packages that would give you the output you want for your company.

As you can see, the price ranges for getting a logo made can vary quite. So, do your research, have a budget in mind that you’d like to spend and be sure to give guidelines so that your logo is worth the money being spent.
