San Francisco, CA (PRESS RELEASE – February 16, 2010) – 99designs.com, the #1 marketplace for crowdsourced graphic design for small business, today announced a new ‘Ready-made’ logo store where thousands of professional logos can be browsed, purchased and customized starting at just $99. The ‘Ready-made’ logo store from 99designs.com provides small businesses immediate access to a catalogue of original and professional logos while also creating additional opportunities for designers to generate
revenue. The Ready-made storefront is now accessible and accepting logo uploads with the first logos available for sale in March.
The logo store compliments the existing design contest marketplace at 99designs.com to create two options for sourcing professional logos at an affordable price. Small businesses looking for the fastest solution can pick a logo “off the shelf” at the Ready-made store and quickly have it customized to fit their needs. Meanwhile, clients who desire the highest level of customization can choose to have their logo created from scratch by crowdsourcing it to the community of designers at 99designs.com.
“While our popular design contest marketplace is ideal if you’re looking for a fully customized logo, many small business owners simply want a fast, cost effective, ‘off the shelf’ option,” said Mark Harbottle, Co-founder of 99designs.com. “With thousands of professional logo designs ripe for the picking, our new logo store serves this purpose nicely. At the same time, our 60,000 active designers who upload a fresh design every 10 seconds to 99designs.com will welcome another
potential source of income, and another channel to expose their talent to thousands of new customers.”
99designs.com is currently working with its designers to prepare and categorize the Ready-made logos for sale. Designers interested in uploading logos for sale can do so by visiting http://99designs.com/readymade/submit/logo. The first logos will be available for purchase in March at http://99designs.com/readymade/logos.
99designs is the #1 marketplace for crowdsourced graphic design for small business. Its Ready-made logo store has thousands of professional logos available for customization and sale right off the shelf while its Design Contest Marketplace enables businesses to quickly and inexpensively source custom designed logos, websites, business cards or any other graphic design work by launching design projects to a global community of over 160,000 members. 99designs.com sees a new design uploaded every 10 seconds and pays out over half a million dollars to its design community every month.
