How to Design a Logo in Word

If you don’t have access to an image editor, you can use Microsoft Word to create your logo instead. Word includes a variety of shapes, three-dimensional effects and text options you can use for logos. Since the completed logo may be re-sized, you can easily add it to letterhead, envelopes and postcards you’ve created in Word. For additional customization, use fonts and colors that match your business theme and move objects where you’d like them to go.
