As I stated when I finished my logo contest, this was a blast. As a startup business, funds are less than limited, since I haven't started selling product yet. Not having a logo made me feel less official but the costs quoted were between $600-$1200! When I read about your company in INC magazine, I was so excited. The logo, packaging and stationery contest we so much fun and quite addictive. I found myself checking in several times a day and late at night, just to see if anyting new had come in. Had I contracted with one artist, I would have received only their take on my vision. With 99designs, I received submission that exceeded my expectation, some that were way off my brief, but I actually like them and some that were dead on. It allowed to move away from my narrow focus and think about what the customer might like. The polling was also very valuable. I am so excited with the outcome. Had I had the money, I would have purchased two logos, because I was really torn, but the one I picked turned out to be the perfect one. It looks awesome on my labels and on my stationery items.
