From The Desk Of Pamela J. Bates

Logo Design and Business Branding
I've had my own 3D business (that is - off the Internet) helping other small businesses grow for 19 years. Whether it's Public Relations, Marketing or Advertising, I do it. That includes graphic design like logos, business cards, marketing collateral, etc.
Since it's something I already do, I've been working to incorporate more of it in my etsy shop Bates Mercantile Co.  It's always rewarding working with small businesses to help them establish a professional presence and brand to set them up for growth and success. Adding my graphic design work to Bates Mercantile Co., has allowed me to reach people across the world. Like knowing my illustration prints are in homes and offices worldwide, knowing I'm helping to brand businesses in every corner of the globe is something that really makes me happy.
Here's some of what I've been working on lately.

....and my very latest design.....
Are you a small business owner? Do you know small business owners? If you are or if you do, and are in need of help branding a business you can get in touch with me via Bates Mercantile Co. or email.  Whether it's a premade logo or custom logo design, business card design, marketing collateral like post cards, or even etsy shop headers or facebook timelines, I'd love to work with you.

Currently, on my plate I am working with a wonderful photographer from Long Island, Steph Massey. We are updating her logo. If you're in that area, her family portrait and pet portrait work is fantastic.  Also customizing a premade logo design for a lovely French woman now living in the UK, and just shipped a customized logo to Australia. See what I mean about all corners of the globe?

What are you working on today?

Hey, how was your weekend? Ours was great. We did get a campfire in on Friday night with some of the neighborhoodlums.  It was a gorgeous night. Saturday we enjoyed a high school graduation party for our dear friends Ralph and Cathryn's youngest. We also watched the Bruins beat Chicago. Hell to the yeah. Yesterday I made rhubarb bread and rhubarb jelly for my Dad and spent some time with him and my Mom for Father's Day. All in all, a pretty full weekend.

The sun is out and shining today and I plan on heading out later this afternoon to do some work in the garden, if I get the work on my desk done. So, I must be on my way.

Ciao for now,



  1. I love your work, I've been working in this business (as a writer not a designer) for quite some time and I've had my share of design teams and designers; I must say, you are definitely one of the best I've met.

    1. Honestly, can you just hang around to continue to boost my ego? Of course, if you do, it may get so large that I just float away like a big hot air baloon.

      That is SO nice! What a great day I've had and that just topped it off!!!

      You're a peach Andreea

  2. Great designs - thanks for sharing!

  3. Ive always wanted to see more of your work, thanks for showing us. Would love to see more- especially if you have a hand in the rest of the branding like packaging etc.


You comments make my day. Thanks for taking the time to visit Mercantile Muse and for commenting. I really appreciate it. ~Pam
