Keep the Correct Logo Formats on File
When working with a designer to develop a logo, make sure you receive all the necessary file formats. At a minimum, request these files:
Vector file (.eps)—the universal logo that a designer can use to create almost anything. Don’t worry if you can’t open the file—you probably don’t have the correct software.
Full-color version (.jpg)—the format you’ll use most. You may want to ask for a variety of sizes.
Single-color version (.jpg)—a black-and-white version when color is not an option (e.g., B&W ad).
White version with a transparent background (.png)—to put on a colored background or image.
Color version with a transparent background (.png)—to put on a colored background or image.
With these logo files, you’ll have what you’ll need for any design project.
