In addition to being displayed on your Bakesy Shop, your logo will be shown on invoices and receipts sent to customers.


Don't have a logo? Check out Fiverr - Fiverr is a marketplace that connects you with freelancers and is a great place to get a professional logo created for your business that won't break the bank.


Tip: Before picking a freelancer, be sure to look at their past work to see if the style aligns with what you're looking for.
