How to make Logos using Microsoft Word

Logos Cost Money!

Ever try to get a logo and see how much it would cost you? Yeah its painful but necessary. Good news is there is a great alternative to paying for expensive logos. You could use your Microsoft Word software to create your very own logos for whatever reasons you have in mind.

The thing about using this technique is that you have to comply with the terms of use with all images involved with building your logo. Breaking these rules may cost you much more money than the logo you were attempting to buy.

A great website I like to use to get images that can be used for any reason is Stock XCHNG (SXC.HU)

Tips and Tricks

To place images in the background, right-click the image and go to text-wrapping. The menu will give you a list of things that you can do with the image. Select Behind Text to place your image behind your text.

Place images in line with text, simply select in line with text.

The rest is pretty standard stuff.

1. Download all the images you will be using

Get ready to create your logo by downloading all the images that you want to insert into your logo. As stated above, make sure you comply with the terms of use of the images that you are using. Last thing you want is to be sued by someone and end up paying much more money for that logo than you anticipated. Anyway, once you download your images, open your Microsoft Word program. If you do not have Microsoft Word, you can purchase it at Microsoft.

Open Microsoft Word

This is the most obvious step. Open up the program and lets get started.

Upload The Images Into Microsoft Word

Search through your pictures and upload the images you need to use in your logo. Microsoft Word is a great program because you can place images within the background of text, or other images that you are using.

Put Images Together

Since you are able to place images behind or in front of text or other images, this allows you to create your logo easily. If you want text within your logo, enter your text. Next, upload the images and place them near, beside, or behind the text. This works out best if your images have a white background. Last, copy and paste your logo wherever you want to, and that's it. You have your own logo for whatever purpose you need it for.

      A cost saving article! Yes, logos cost money. A lot of it. I had mine done so many years ago and it took the artist 4 weeks. I am very happy with it but this is a great way to make your own.
