LogoGarden offers two types of services: First, a Do-It-Yourself process that enables customers to create a professional looking logo and business cards and second, full-service custom design products. In this process, they take customer information from their potential clients and create the design and print the files. LogoGarden is a small company with just under 20 people. They are based in Nashville, TN.
Logo Garden has cheaper prices compared to other industry competitors. They offer packages ranging to $39, including a free trial package. Customers essentially only pay for what they need. They don't have preset packages that lock you into a check list of items you have to get whether or not you'll use them. Instead they offer the different file formats that can be purchased as needed so that you only get what you need. They also have a large selection of other branding and name recognition merchandise type products available to help customers brand their business. From business cards, stadium cups, pens, t-shirts, banners, phone cases... etc. they cover all aspects of business merchandising that many companies don't offer as an additional product. Production on most of these items is just 5-7 business days as well.
Unlike other do-it-yourself sites the logo customers create is eligible to be trademarked. It is the combination of the symbol, color, company name and typeface that together make an original logo. Once a customer purchases the high resolution logo, it's belongs to them. The elements a customer chooses to use are a part of our database, but they make the logo uniquely their own by making the colors, effects and layout... etc. Unlike most companies they do not restrict revision options. Their slogan online is, "we design until you're satisfied!"
Their designs are very stock and have a heavy clipart feel to them. Customers can edit them to fit a vast design need and they have video clips on their site explaining how to do that, however their selection is not as visually appealing as other companies we have reviewed that also use the do-it-yourself format. They also do not have design images per industry or as many industry options as other do-it-yourself companies offering the same services. Additionally, they do not share a lot of step by step information on their website. They force customers to instantly jump into the design process with all of their design services to find a lot of answers about what their services detail, not really even giving a lot of information until after they have emailed potential customers the free design option they have already played with online to get more answers.
Due to high printing and shipping costs they do not offer any shipping outside of the US but they do provide high resolution "ready to print" images, with purchase, that can be printed locally from any international location. If customers don't mind taking on the extra work, that may not be considered a negative.
Although Logo Garden is an established company, they haven't been in the industry for as long as other competitors. They were established in 2011 and have developed a large presence in the industry since then. Additionally, the size of the company is undisclosed on their website.
