What is the Shopify Logo Size?

To save yourself from hours of frustration it’s key to know the limitations, or rather the recommendations when uploading logos.

The Shopify logo size is recommended to be a maximum of 450 pixels x 250 pixels, and the ideal size is 200 pixels x 200 pixels.

Kanteneo recommendations:

  • When using a logo on a dark theme ensure the image is transparent, there is nothing worst than seeing a professional theme destroyed by a poor logo design.
  • Ensure the logo is not pixelated once uploaded
  • The logo should match and contrast with the Shopify theme/design
