You've made at least two good decisions today.
You decided to spend money on a logo and you decided to check out this page before you do.
Follow the pointers on this page and you'll make another good decision when you pick your logo vendor :) See the logos for sale comparison further down the page.
You can expect to pay $100 and up. Pre-designed logos can sell for $1,000, but the average is about $220. Price can be a little deceptive here. Don't assume that paying more gets you a better logo. Price can be a quality indicator, but it also depends on how eager the designer is to make a sale.
If you find pre-designed logos priced under $95, be careful. Read the terms and conditions. You are probably not buying exlcusive rights to the logo!
This is an important bit because this is where dishonest logo vendors pull the wool over your eyes.
If you are paying your hard-earned cash to buy a logo, you want it to be yours alone. You do not want to share the logo with a bunch of other companies. So make sure you understand what you are paying for before placing your order. Reputable logo vendors give you exclusive ownership by transferring the copyright to you. You don't want anything less than the copyright. I'll give you links to reputable logo vendors further down.
If you do not have the ability to edit the logo yourself, then make sure the seller offers customization of the logo. Customization is usually included in the price. Ideally you want to receive unlimited revisions, which means the seller commits to changing the logo until you are 100% happy with it.
It is easy to slap a "Satisfaction Guaranteed" image on a web site. Unfortunately there are logo companies that will show an image like that prominently while not really guaranteeing your satisfaction. If you see a guarantee badge, click it for details. If it is not clickable, don't buy from them.
Ideally you want a money-back guarantee. A satisfaction guarantee simply means that the designer will work with you to change the logo until you are satisfied. A money-back guarantee gives you way out if the designer does not deliver.
