The Best Paid and Free Hockey Logo Maker Apps

So, you’ve got a team together, and you’re playing in a beer league this season. You want to make a cool logo for your team but don't know how to use techy software like Adobe. Where do you look?

In this blog, we’ll run you through some free and paid options for making a logo without having any graphic design skills. There are so many apps like this out there, so we've distilled the list down to 5 to make it easier for you to choose one.

If you’re new to logo making, here’s a blog that’ll show you the do’s and don’ts of creating a sports logo.

Examples of products we've created for hockey teams across Canada and the United States


1. Canva

A Logo Making Software on Desktop and Phone

Canva is a well-known graphic design software that’s mostly used by businesses, but it’s great for this purpose.

You can use this software on a desktop or a phone which is a plus. The app is super easy to use and has lots of hockey related templates you can pick from and edit.

Canva offers a variety of fonts that would look great as a team name banner, and their list of photos and graphics is endless.

What’s more is Canva offers a free trial for 14 days, so there’s no need to spend anything if you cancel before the deadline.

Here is a logo that we created in canva for the imaginary team, the “Killer Ducks”.

A Brief Overview:

Pros:

  • Mobile or desktop compatible
  • Intuitive to navigate
  • Lots of hockey themed templates

Cons:

  • Costs money (unless you use the free trial)

2. PlaceIt Logo Templates

A Paid Hockey Logo Maker Available Only on Desktop

PlaceIt is a website that’s best used on desktop. It uses a simple system that offers you hundreds of templates to pick from. Just click on the “logo” tab and then click “sports”, and “hockey”. What you’ll see is a ton of templates for hockey logos, including simpler, stock logos along with more complex ones like the walrus logo we made.

The colour customization is simple - you have the option to change the colour of the components in the image.

The level of customization depends on the template you choose. For example, the walrus’ body colour can’t be changed, but its outline colour can be.

Our favorite part about this software is how it blends shapes together. No matter what you write, the image and text outlines (ex. The blue outline of the walrus logo) will seamlessly blend to make the image look clean and cohesive.

PlaceIt is available for $7.47 per month, so if you want to buy a subscription for one month and then cancel before it rebills, it’s probably worth it.

A Brief Overview:

Pros:

Cons:

  • It's a paid software

3. Esports Logo Maker

A Free Logo Maker with Plenty of Cartoon Graphics

This app is meant to be used for E-Sports logos, but it’s actually a great app for hockey team logos. There are tons of cool images that would make great team logos. The templates include themes like animals, monsters, dinosaurs, ninjas, knights, and skulls. What else could you need?

The upside of this app is it’s super simple, all you have to do is pick your logo from the many templates, and then input your team’s name.

The downside is that there’s very little to no customization of colours, font and image positioning. So, if you’ve got an idea in mind that’s specific and personalized, this app is probably not going to cut it for you.

More good news though, it’s free. Just download the app and it lets you download high resolution images straight from the app. Here’s a sweet samurai logo that we made in-app in about 20 seconds.

A Brief Overview:

Pros:

  • It's all done for you
  • Lots of good quality templates to choose from
  • Completely free

Cons:

  • No customization other than the team name and the outline colours

4. Logo Maker by Apps You Love

A Free Hockey Logo Maker App with Complex Hockey Graphics

This is another free app that has some great hockey assets to offer. What we like about this app is the great organization of all the assets. Just search “sports” under “graphics” and then scroll down to the hockey section - it’s that easy.

You can also change the colour and font (of which there are many) of your text, and use “patterns” to fill in the text to make it interesting.

The app is riddled with ads, but you can download images for free. Your download will come with a watermark, but we can remove that for you for no extra charge.

A Brief Overview:

Pros:

  • Has really unique hockey graphics
  • Free for the most part

Cons:

A Paid Logo Maker App with Lots of General Graphics

Assets/templates available on this app

This app is lacking a bit in the hockey graphics department, but it’s still worth checking out. They have tons of other kinds of graphics that you could use for your logo too. They also have easily changeable fonts and text colours.  

The downside to this app is that you can’t access most of the graphics without paying.

Take a look at some of the hockey assets available.

A Brief Overview:

Pros:

  • Easy to use
  • Has lots of graphics available for use

Cons:

  • Graphics are behind a paywall
  • Not a huge selection of hockey graphics

If you're going to use one of these apps for your logo, keep in mind that there are limitations to the amount of colours you can include in your logo depending on what type of artwork you choose. Take a look at our blog about artwork styles to see which style will work for you.
