A New Way To Brand Your Business

Hey gang! How's your week so far? Mine is busy, busy which seems to be a running theme. Spending many hours in the studio =  design time.  I've been working away on many custom logo designs and branding collateral design and am happy to be doing so.  Along the way though, as I create and revise, and finalize logo designs for clients, there are logos (or the beginnings of what could be a great logo) that just don't end up working for that project for whatever reason that sit in my 'someday' file.

It's high time I put some of them to good use and here's one way for me to do that:  One of A Kind Premade Logo Designs.  What that means for you or other small business people is you can professionally brand your business for success with a professionally designed premade logo that is yours and only yours.  I've offered the OOAK option in the shop as an add on to a premade logo (that hadn't been purchased previously by anyone else), but I'll now be offer premade designs that are specifically made to be one of a kind designs. 

This also helps me to continually add product/services to my shop offerings. That is something I've found to be very helpful as an etsy shop owner, in driving new traffic to Bates Mercantile Co. As a business owner, that's important to me and my bottom line.

And here's the first OOAK Premade Logo now available in the Bates Mercantile Co. shop.  I'm offering, which I think could lend itself well to a lot of different business types, from wedding based businesses, jewelry design, professional services, salons.....the list goes on.

Premade logos, whether one of a kind like this new design or not, give small business owners an affordable way to create a well received presence for their business.  Being one of a kind makes it all the more special.

 I think it is a strong, classic logo that is quite versatile. Especially considering that rather than have to purchase a premade logo and then an add on for font changes, color changes and minor changes to the logo, they will be included in new OOAK Premade Logo listings (1 set of initial changes, and one round of revisions).  So if you liked this logo, but wanted it in a different color or font, it's included with your purchase.


If you're interested in this one of a kind premade logo, you'll find it here

More to follow as I find time. For now, I'm busy working on custom designs.  If you are interested in working with me on designing a custom logo or collateral for your business and would like to get your project on the boards you'll find more information here. It's one of my favorite ways to spend time in the studio. I'd welcome the chance to learn more about your business, as well as your hopes and dreams for where that business is going to take you.

What's happening in your world today?

I wish I could say the sun is shining, but it's a rainy, cloudy day here. Of course, all things being relative, I guess that's better than snow!

Speaking of relatives.................A quick birthday shout out to my mother's baby brother, my Uncle Bobby. 

(Celebrating in Florida with part of our family gang.  
They're obviously treating him right. Thanks for the pic Stacey!)

Happy Birthday Uncle Bobby! Our crazy family wouldn't be the same without you!  

See you all on the flip side.

Ciao for now,
