Default Watermark or logo on product photos?

I am in the middle of some major reorganization in my "bow business".
I started to take new product photos and also taking some model photos. I am seriously concerned about one issue though (like I do not have other things on my plate): should I put my whole logo on my photos or only a watermark.
My current idea is to put my logo in the upper part of the picture (as you can see on the photo which is a chunky necklace not a bow this time). I thought that with the pink dotted stripe I could also customize it for holidays, for example christmas in the third pic. I have a couple of photos like that on a handmade marketplace (not etsy) and I like the way it stands out from the other pictures. So there are a lot of pros.
But now I feel that it might be just "too much".

I tried the watermark but somehow I was not really satisfied with it.

Should I only write the name of my business with small letters somewhere on the photo?

Please give me advice. I do not want to make all my photos again in a couple of weeks.

personally I would put a watermark in but you can also do a small logo or something in a focal area of the picture that would be hard to remove. It's all too easy to just take those images you posted and crop out your logo. People will take a mile if you give them the inch, just remember that.

Either the 2nd or 3rd ones would be perfect. Doesn't diminish from your product but is difficult to crop out and retouch over without being obvious, so therefore should deter image thieves fairly well! Great job =)

I watermark mine the same way as in your last picture. I just want to make sure no one else can use my pictures for their page. I can spot a bad photoshop job a mile away..lol.

These are similar to the way I was doing mine before I re-edited all of my pics.. though now after spending countless hours redoing all of my photos I realize they could very easily be stolen. :S Like the look of these ones though.

Logo plus watermark is a good idea IMO because although they may get stolen it will be harder too JMO
