I don't know if this is the right place to post this so feel free to move it if its not.
I have seen several guys who have designed their own logo and/or fancy postcards. What is the best program to use? I am wanting to design a logo in the next week or 2 and just wanted to know if theres something out there that works well or if its best to go and have someone do it.
Any freeware or something that does not cost an arm and a leg?
