i'm new to this so please forgive me if i ask very basic questions, lol!
i'm starting a candle company where most of the profits are going to go to local animal shelters...
i would love a designer logo that is small (recognizable as small as 1inch x 1 inch), simple but elegant, classy, and gets the meaning across even if it had no words/company name, preferably with the watercolor and vintage look........my first question is, what do i need to just simply download the image/logo to make a sticker/label? i keep reading about 'vector files', 'source files', etc., but i have no idea what that is! i know (i think) for some label-making websites, they ask for a file in 'jpeg....pjg...gif' format?
as far as the image/logo i'd like, i want it to be a picture of an animal that is part cat, part mermaid, and part unicorn (just the horn part on a kitty head who has a mermaid tail!
i don't have a super huge budget, partially because i am just starting out and i really have no idea about the graphic design world, and how it works, lol!
thank you so much and i hope we can maybe work together!
