KNS Financial has been in business for a little over 7 years (existing in several different forms) and in that time, we’ve always had trouble finding dependable design services. Whether it was deciding on our basic color palette, trying to decide on a logo, creating stationary, designing business cards, it has always been difficult to find professional help at a reasonable cost.
To get those things done can cost thousands of dollars, depending on what’s involved and what all the designer gives you at the end of the process. To be honest, we’ve heard so many horror stories about people either using friends (or even friends of friends), looking on various ‘classified-type’ sites, or even finding a cheap gig on freelance websites.
Fortunately, Sherrian is extremely creative and we’ve been able to use her color schemes and designs for most of our creative work (logos, headers, and even the design of our free course on worshipful giving). However, there are things that are beyond her scope and our software, and for that we need to look to professionals.
Since creating a side-business or even a full-time business is something that we strongly believe in and talk about often, we are always on the look out for companies or marketplaces where we can find designers with the right mix of professional and affordable. So when Deluxe Business Services reached out to me about their products, I immediately had to take a look.
Deluxe Business Services
When we’ve looked at other services and individuals, most of them simply asked for a list of keywords that represented our business and then went off on their own to create the design.
However, Deluxe Business Services doesn’t take such a minimalistic approach. They actually take you through an entire process that is designed to take as much of your input as possible and come up with the perfect logo that represents your business.
Great Prices for What You Are Getting
This process involves a “Creative Brief and Brainstorming” session, initial concepts for you to review, and then a chance for feedback & finalization of your design. What I found amazing about this process is that you can have up to 5 designers working on your project and receive up to 50 design concepts with unlimited revisions!
They have 3 plans that you can choose from: Bronze ($245), Silver ($395), and Gold ($645). The extremely low price for bronze (with 2 designers, 2 revisions, and 10 design concepts) initially caught my eye, but once I saw all that comes with the other packages, I believe that the Gold package would be the best option.
In addition to the unlimited revisions, 5 designers, and 50 concepts, you also receive the font and color codes used (so matching future designs to your logos will be simple even if you use another vendor or do it yourself), custom email signature design, stationary designs (letterhead, fax cover sheets, envelopes), and even 1,000 business cards designed by their team to include and match your logo!
Discounts for KNS Financial Readers
I guess you can see why I think that the Gold package would be the best option. However, if that is outside of your budget at the moment, you can still get a great deal for less than $250! Deluxe Business Services was kind enough to offer our readers a $25 discount on their inexpensive Bronze package. That discount goes up to $40 off of the Silver package, and $50 off of the Gold Design Package (bringing to price to under 600).
Even if you aren’t sure exactly which package fits both your budget and your goals, you can always reach out to them for a free phone consultation in order to figure out which plan is best.
If you are looking to represent your business and brand properly, having a professional logo and consistent design is a must. To be able to do that without breaking the bank is the dream of every entrepreneur, and with Deluxe Business Services, it is no longer a dream.
If you use Deluxe Business Services to create your logo (or for any other design services) let us know. We would love to see what you choose and how it turns out for you!
