Cardinal House : Our Logo

Although it's not unusual to have a name for a property because of something specific to the property or the family, it is maybe a bit more rare to have a logo for the property. We have special reasons to name our new home and thought it would be fun to incorporate it into our stationery and some household items. I don't want to decorate our new home with pictures or kitschy items of Cardinals, but do want to have a small representation of the bird in a very subtle way.

I wanted a logo design that was subtle, meaningful and didn't have a commercial feel to it. I looked at various images and logo design company's to bring to life the idea we had in mind. After a broad search I found Little Guy Logo's.




Little Guy Logo's offers various packages at reasonable rates. They designed three logo's for Cardinal House and have since produced them in various colours and formats. I plan to use subtle tone-on-tone shades for the linen embroidery and an embossed process for small note cards.

Now I'm on the search for the stationery and French linen aprons for embroidery. If anyone knows of a great contact for either please let me know.

And your thoughts on the logo designs - What is your favourite?


  1. I love the third one just because it has that huge pop of red! Great design!

  2. Very cute logos! My favorite is the first. I like how the little bird is perched on the C, and also the monochromatic look.

    1. I have to admit that is my favourite, especially all in one tone. We will use it with a little red bird as well.

  3. What a lovely idea favourite is the top logo :)
    Have a great week.
