As Pezflash was saying, always state in both the quote and the contract that you require a deposit (33% or 50% non-refundable) and the quote or contract signed and back into your email account before you start any work.
Also it is imperative to send the client a list of your terms, conditions and caveats before starting to juggle with money and endless hours of work and/or send it at the end of the quotation.
If client accepts, (and you still want to use paypal) like Miseld has said, you can send an invoice from paypal which you can -sort of -customize. If it is not an international client, Bank transfer should be the first option to give to a client.And with that you also can say in the TCC that all transfer fees must be covered by the customer.
I’ve had the same issues with effects on the text. So it wouldn’t be the first time. However everyday i see really crappy logos getting accepted and good ones rejected, so if all fails either sell it in another format or directly try another marketplace to sell it.
While i like it, in my opinion you can refine it a bit more – there are gaps very tiny ( which will smudge when printed) and some of the geometry could have more refinement.
Also the squeezed text might be the problem for rejection, send it again with more clear lines, couple more color options, and normal and squeezed text options. Otherwise, you always can sell the design as a TShirt
While I am not a full Envato marketer, I am happily able to survive quite well as a Freelancer.
It is best in my opinion to start with having a job and making this aside to make an extra buck. After you have found a working model that brings up stable income through a mix of means; such as contests, selling stock and offering design services, and when this flow of cash doubles of triples what you earn in a normal job:
It is then, when you can start to think about becoming a full freelancer.
Otherwise you risk to stay chained to your computer at home with little to no income at all. And then is when people will ask you to get a real job to earn steady money. But if you are able to show them how free you can be with a steady flow of cash through just freelancing and selling stock, they will respect and even envy you.
The only thing I can think of might be the fin going over the line of text. Other than that I like the logo.
But yet again there is some reviewers that accept crap logos
in bulk into the marketplace and other reviewers reject great brands like yours. I had the exact same thing happen to myself this past week, out of 4 logos all hard rejected with the same “quality & aesthetic” ‘Bullmanure’ rule that only seems to apply to just some of us.
I quite like the logo and the colors. But as someone said before, the tagline is sitting in the middle of the G and L letters, making it difficult for a company to put a longer tagline. Also, normally logo should have its horizontal and vertical option.
As for the colors on the logo itself, are they Trimmed? or are they on a layer mode? If they are on a layer mode that might be the reason for which they did reject the logo.
I agree with Demoforza, the font does not match the logo. Also, I think that you could work on it a bit more so its able to stand out from the crowd and not follow what everyone else is doing over and over again.
Open a ticket and see what they say. From what i see its ok, but cant really tell anything else since the image its so small.
We only can see a portion of the logo, thus cannot comment.
