1 Creative Brief and Brainstorming Session
Based on the logo design package that best fits your needs and a short creative brief to help our team get to know your business, your Logo Design Team will kick-off your design project.
The Deluxe design team will then hold a brainstorming session to develop ideas about how best to visually communicate your business brand and create a lasting impression through your logo. Unlike many other companies, Deluxe takes this extra step, because we believe it’s crucial to developing a custom logo design that perfectly reflects your business. We’ll be in touch throughout this key phase in the logo design process.
2 Initial Concepts
Once your in-house design team has formulated several solid ideas, each designer will design a logo they feel best represents your business. Each designer has their own unique style and ‘voice’, so you’ll receive logo ideas to choose from that represent a range of perspectives – always with original artwork! Following a review by a project manager, who will ensure the right message is being conveyed in each logo concept, you will receive an email inviting you to review them on your private online viewing page. This display page is available to you 24/7 and can be accessed from any computer system.
We recommend that you go over each custom logo design and choose the elements from the designs that appeal to you most. From there, you can request changes to these designs, which we will complete to your specifications.
3 Feedback and Finalization
Our mission is to design a logo you’re completely happy with. With our Gold and Silver logo design packages, you’ll get unlimited revisions until you are 100% satisfied with your final logo design. As we progress through each round of changes, we will be in direct communication as you narrow down your options and choose the custom logo design that’s the best fit for your business.
Once you’ve finalized your choice, Deluxe will send you the high resolution master vector files in all of the file formats you’ll need to start using your new logo for any type of application. Deluxe will release all design rights to you so you can trademark your logo for your business, making it completely your own. The logo design process is truly 100% you – from start to finish!

Quality and Resolution of Your Digital Logo Files
When Deluxe finalizes your design files we supply you with both full color and black & white versions of your design. These high resolution files can be reduced or enlarged without the loss of image quality regardless of what technology platform you use.
Many other logo companies use 72 dpi formats for clients, which are fine for websites, but cannot be used for any other type of production without significant loss of quality. Your Deluxe design package automatically comes with logos produced in our standard 600 dpi format so that you will never have reproduction issues in any size and will not be subject to additional design costs to edit or fix your design files in the future. Just another reason we stand out!
We deliver both CMYK and RGB color codes, the two most common color systems used in printing, with all packages to ensure exact color matches. This means your logo can be easily reproduced as designed by any printer and will avoid additional fees to match your colors.
True Type Fonts
True type fonts are printed exactly the way they appear on the screen and can be resized to any height. Gold Logo Design package customers will receive the true type fonts that are used in their final logo design. Having the exact font files used in your logo design makes it very simple for a printer, web site design firm or promotional material manger to reproduce your Deluxe logo exactly the way it was designed. Some printers will charge additional fees to match fonts which can cause your logo design to look different than the one given to you by Deluxe. Having all the fonts on-hand will save you time and money and will keep a consistent look across all your marketing materials.
The fonts Deluxe provides are very easy to install. If you have questions or need help, you can call one of our design managers to assist you and we’re happy to help – always!
Your final files can be used for any type of application
