So, you want to create an awesome and unique dropshipping store, but how do you get a logo to stand out from the crowd? In this article, we will discuss five great options, so you can get an amazing logo for your online store!
Is it important to have a logo for your dropshipping store?
Before we go over the tips on how to get a great logo, let’s first see why it’s important to have a logo for your dropshipping store:
Just like the name of your store, a logo can be remembered easily by your visitors.
I can’t say it better than Chrysalis:
A logo is an important part of your company’s brand, and makes a significant impact on a company’s public perception. In fact, a logo is one of the most important branding investments a business can make.
For example, you can probably name all the three brands below:
How did you do? Easy?
5 Ways to get a logo for your dropshipping store
Are you ready to find out how to get a logo for your store? If so, then follow me below.
Also, in the end, we will discuss if you can use the logo from other stores and how to create a favicon.
1. Business Logo Generators
The first option to get a logo for your dropshipping store is by using a logo generator.
There’s not much to cover about them; the only thing you should know is that not all of them are free.
Some logo generators look like they are free, but once you’re done filling in all the information, you see that you need to pay before you can download your design.
Or they are free, but then you will get a low-quality version and can’t use it for commercial purposes.
Here are a few awesome logo generator examples:
Next up is Fiverr!
You might have heard of this site already, but if not, it’s a marketplace where you can order services from as low as $5.
Just keep in mind that the lower price you pay, the least you should expect.
For example, if you found a $5 logo, then don’t think your logo will be the only one they do that day. They have probably tens or hundreds lined up to do.
That’s why it could be better to spend a bit more, so you can be sure that that person takes the time for your logo.
If you’re wondering how to find the right designer, just take a look at their examples:
See which design style fits your brand the most.
Another option, if you already know the design style, is using the filter options from Fiverr:
Don’t forget to look at the reviews of the seller before you purchase one of their services.
One of the most popular design tools out there is currently Photoshop.
So, if you have some experience with Photoshop (or want to learn it), then take a look at this video below that will show you how to create a logo for your business:
There are more videos on YouTube though, if you’re interested in a specific design style.
Also, keep in mind that there is a ton of free information online about Photoshop. (Just like with dropshipping)
For example, if you don’t have any experience with Photoshop, then take a look at this free course.
If you want to create the logo yourself, but you’re not that good at using tools like Photoshop, then try Canva!
Canva is free to use and helps you create a logo without much problem.
Also, you can use Canva for way more things. For example, for designing your social media posts!
They have a premium plan with some extra features and premium images, but the free plan is more than enough when you’re beginning.
If your budget is a bit bigger and you don’t want to create a logo yourself or use a generator, then you can take a look at a site like 99designs.
Here’s how it works:
- Start by creating a simple brief to help designers understand your design needs.
- Decide if you want to hire a designer or run a contest.
- Finalize your design, and if you want, you can continue working together.

Can you use the logo from other stores?
To simple of an answer?
Well, technically, you can use every logo you want since most of the time, it’s just a simple copy and paste, but you should not do this.
If they find out, then you could be in big trouble. It’s the same reason as to why you should not dropship copyrighted products.
How to create a favicon from your logo?
Now that you have your logo, it’s time to create a favicon!
A favicon is an icon on a website, which is displayed next to the name of the site in the address bar. It’s also visible in the bookmarks!
I will use this blog as an example for you. Do you see my favicon next to the name of the blog:
The easiest way to create a favicon from your logo is by using one of the sites below:
The only thing you have to keep in mind while creating your favicon is that not every logo fits as a favicon.
For example, take a look at our logo:
If we put that logo as the favicon, then it won’t be readable since it will be cropped too much:
Can you read it? Maybe this one:
Still not that clear, right? Check this out:
One more big tip, if your logo is smaller than the favicon box, then make sure it’s transparent.
Otherwise, you will have a big white box around it, which won’t look good. (As you can see in my examples above)
However, for some logos, it might look better, but most have the white box around their favicon because they didn’t know they can remove it.
You can, of course, use Photoshop for this task as well:
