The Easy Way to Make a Club Logo
Are you a member of a club or association? Have you ever
thought how much better your letterheads would look with your own
club logo? How about a sign for your club with your logo and club
name on it?
Well, it is really very easy to make up your own logo. It will
be unique to your club too.
By using your computer and some copyright free clipart you
will have a huge range of material to choose from. Here's how to
begin this exciting project.
You are going to select suitable objects from the clipart
package and use these to design your logo.
Choose things that relate to your club's activities. For
example, cameras, tripod, and film for a photography club. Or
perhaps a checked background with a few chess pieces for a chess
The easiest way is to open an art/graphics program - most
computers come with one. This does not need to be any particular
program just whatever you have available.
Have a look through the clipart. This can be the ones that
come with the art/graphics program or one of the many clipart CD
that are for sale. Try to use copyright free clipart, most
clipart is. You will be combining various clipart objects in your
final logo so there shouldn't be any copyright problems
I like to copy and paste the various clipart objects onto one
page in the art program. It saves going back and forth to the
clipart. Collect together suitable objects that relate to your
Next decide on the shape you would like the logo to be. It
could be square, round, arched, even heart shaped.
Open a new page then start with the logo shape and fill it in
with a suitable color. This will depend on the colors of your
other objects. If the objects are dark then a light background
will be better, and if the objects are mainly light try using a
Use copy and paste to move the objects onto the page with the
logo background. Place your objects onto the background. Resize
them to suit the background if necessary.
I like to have some of them overlapping; I think it looks more
interesting. When you do this select the one you want to bring to
the front, then click on Arrange, then Layer, and bring forward.
Your program may be a bit different but it will let you do this -
use the Help menu if you need to.
If you want to include the club name, leave room for it when
you are placing the objects.
To add the club's name add a Text Box. Type in the club's
name. You can use any font you like - there is almost too much
choice. Move the text box into the correct position.
You could use a banner shape from the options in the program
and place the club name on it if that would suit your layout.
Once you have an arrangement you like use the Edit menu to
Select All, and then Save it.
You can make several logos with different objects and
different layouts. Be sure to Save the ones you like!
Print them out, and take your new logos to the club so that
the club members can decide on the best one to use.
It has never been so easy to create your own logo. How about
one for yourself or your family?
Add the logo to all your club stationery. Use it on your
letterhead, cards, and activity programs. You could even make
your own sign.
A good logo will make your club standout from the crowd.
