Logo, Favicon & Graphic Design
Visit Etsy or Fiverr to hire a talented and affordable graphic designer to create a custom-made logo, favicon, and/or custom graphics. Your design package should include the following file formats: PNG transparent, JPEG, and PDF.
A favicon is a small icon associated with a particular website or page in an Internet browser.
A high-resolution logo will look great no matter where it’s printed or viewed. A low-resolution logo may appear pixelated or blurry when printed or viewed on a large screen. For a logo to be considered high-resolution, it should have a minimum of 300 pixels per inch (PPI).
