When you work with me, I'll save out your logos in various file types and size. Here's a breakdown of what the file types should be used for:
PSD. This file is for Photoshop. If you have Photoshop yourself you can open your logo in it and make graphics with it, or place it over photos.
AI. This file is for Adobe Illustrator and it's a vector file. This means that it can be scaled bigger or smaller without losing quality. You can only open this in Illustrator itself.
JPG. This file can be used anywhere on the web and in lots of free editing programs. Best file format for photos. Cannot be scaled larger without loss of quality.
PNG. This file can also be used a lot on the web. The difference is that this file has a transparent background and JPGS do not. Best file format for using online for all graphics that don't contain photos. Cannot be scaled larger without loss of quality.
PDF. This is suitable for print. (This is the file I always prefer to use for print.)
EPS. This is suitable for print and can be edited with Illustrator. Also scaleable. Great for placing into other documents (eg indesign, photoshop)
You don't need Photoshop or Illustrator to create your own graphics. Canva is a free editing program that comes with free templates for blog posts, eBook templates, and social media graphics. You can upload your logo in here and use your brand colours to keep your graphics in line with your brand.

If you're looking for a good printer for your business cards, stickers, postcards and more, I highly recommend Moo (affiliate link, gives you a discount on your first order!). They print very in a high-quality and their customer service is brilliant.
My favourite type is their luxe style - super thick and quality with the choice of a coloured insert edge for that little extra touch of awesome - I use them myself!
