We are proud of the fact that each and every logo on this site is created in-house, by our own, full-time designers.
We never use clip art or templates in anything we design. We create and sell only original logos and of course we sell each logo only once.
We do not accept logos from freelance designers. We have nothing against freelance designers, but we like the control that comes with keeping everything in-house. We sleep better at night because we know for certain that none of our designs are copied from templates or from existing designs.
Fonts versus letter logos
Letters can not be taken directly from a font and used as a logo, not unless the font is an original creation. If the designer didn't create the font, the resuting "font logo" is not unique and therefore not a logo.
The same principle applies as would for a circle. A circle is not a logo. Too generic. Something has to happen to that circle before it can qualify as a logo. It has to be changed into the shape of an apple, with a bite out of it, for example. Then it's a logo. The same for fonts. That letter taken directly from a font can become a logo, but it's not one yet, no matter how beautiful the font is.
At LetterLogos we usually draw the letters in the logo by hand. Occasionally we start out with a letter from an existing font, but even then we customize it to the point where it clearly is a unique and trademark-able design.
It is impossible to guarantee that no-one anywhere in the world ever came up with a letter logo that is similar to something we created. Especially in the case of very simple designs there is an increased likelyhood that someone may be using a logo that is very close to one of ours.
We strongly recommend registering your logo as a trademark as soon as we deliver the logo files to you. This is by far the best way to protect your brand. It is not always cheap to register a trademark (depending on your location in the world), but it is considerably cheaper than fighting a trademark battle later on. Register it!
If it happens that your trademark registration fails because someone, somewhere uses a logo that's too similar to the logo you purchased from us, we will work with you, free of charge, to make the necessary changes to your logo. This topic is discussed in more detail in our Terms of Service Agreement.
