I am currently finishing logo in Photoshop. Logo will be used in Instagram header(or whatever it's called) and also will be printed on all kinds of different stuff of various sizes.

I need an advise on what would be a reasonable resolution/file size to save logo when passing it to customer?

    finishing logo, in photoshop, asking for reasonable resolution. This will be a smarkastig remark but read a book first. None of this things should happen when crating logo. – SZCZERZO KŁY Apr 11 '18 at 8:38

    Logos should not be created in Photoshop. – Scott Apr 11 '18 at 9:27

    I wouldn't recommend Photoshop for the creation of logos. It's the wrong kind of software. Better to use a vector image editor if you want to print at various sizes. – Billy Kerr Apr 11 '18 at 13:35
  • @SZCZERZOK┼üY I have to disagree: finishing a logo is something that should absolutely happen. – Janus Bahs Jacquet Apr 11 '18 at 23:05

If the logo lends itself to vector format, and (arguably) it should, then you'd be better off designing it in a vector editing program (like Illustrator) and not having to worry about the resolution at all.

You are doing it wrong. You should not use PhotoIShouldNotUseItForLogosShop

Your logo is now limited to the fixed size you made it.

resolution/file size to save logo

This also has no sense. Resolution is not a parameter to take into account. Resolution is just a metadata on a file.

File size has no sense either. A parameter is never "a 1 Mbyte file".

will be used in an Instagram header

Here is the only place there is a specific image size. A simple google search: "Instagram Logo Size" says 110x110px.


also will be printed on all kinds of different stuff of various sizes

You need to remake the logo on a vector based program. Corel Draw, Illustrator, Affinity designer or Inkscape.
