It’s understandable since they are super cheap and an easier option than DIY (Do it yourself). So the question is, should you use logo templates for your business?

I’m not going to lie, I am blind. Without my contacts or glasses, I can’t see anything. It doesn’t help that most of my past jobs required me to stare at monitors, camera screens, or computer screens.
