Creating a logo can be lengthy process. A lot of refinement and improvement happens before the final logo is published. Ink and paper are the best tools to use for inspiration. Trying different paper textures and inks can give you a different look and feel. Below are 5 different paper textures and inks for a logo I've been working on.
Paper: black scrapbook paper.
Ink: Letraset gold metallic ink.
