After purchase, our logo packages are sent as .zip files, which compresses the files and sends them all to you in one folder. Once you download the folder, you can easily open and extract your logo files for use.

Note: The easiest way to extract your files is on a computer, as some mobile devices cannot download .zip files. However, you can scroll down to the bottom of this article for instructions on unzipping files on an Apple or Android device.

Why do we send logo files in a .zip format? 

We send .zip files so that all of your logo assets can be sent together, without the fear of losing any clarity or resolution in the process.

Inside the folder, you'll find:

  • A Getting Started Guide with your logo fonts and colors

  • A padded logo

  • Logo files for print and web, in various colors and backgrounds (including transparent backgrounds)

  • An SVG file, which is a scalable vector graphic that you can manipulate through Adobe Illustrator.

To unzip your files, follow the instructions below based on your operating system.

Unzipping files on a Mac

  1. Open the folder where you downloaded your files (this is usually the Downloads folder on your computer).

  2. Unzip the folder by double-clicking on it.

The file will automatically be decompressed (unzipped) into the same folder the compressed file is in (whether that's your Download folder or another folder you've opened).
