Starting a new business? Refreshing an old one? Creating a mock enterprise for a school project? Whatever the case, you need a logo.

If your budget allows, by all means hire a professional designer. If not, check this out: For a limited time, Cheapskate readers can get a free custom logo from DesignEvo by applying coupon code DEP00CNET at checkout. Regular price: $40. Update: Although this code worked when I tested it, readers are reporting -- and I've confirmed -- it no longer seems to. I'm checking with the vendor and hope to have an update soon. Update No 2: According to the developer, the code is fixed and once again working.

It works like this: Click Sign Up to create an account (it's free), then use the simple browser-based tools to create your image. You can choose from thousands of thematic templates or start from scratch.

When you're done, click Download. In the pop-up pricing window that appears, choose the Plus option, then click Have a coupon? Enter the code and you'll be able to download your logo for free. And with all the perks, too, like a transparent background, print-ready resolution and so on.

Woot! I love a good freebie, and this is an awesome one for anyone who needs a logo.
