[Managing Your Business] Get, Keep, and Back-up Digital Files
If you decide to have your logo, sales collateral (brochures, flyers, pdfs, etc.), or website designed by a professional (which you should!), BE SURE to ask if you can get a full copy of all the ORIGINAL files after the project is complete. If you decide to make edits later, and you can’t track down the original designer, you end up paying again to rebuild the files somewhere else as well as experience frustrating delays.
