I have plan to build a web design company. I have to user tag line as something like "Premium Web Design Service" or "Premium Web Design"....

I want to know that "Premium" means just high cost or is it includes high quality too?

    This has certainly been answered at Better than premium, where the polysemy of 'premium' is discussed. There is also comment on whether or not using 'premium', with the 'higher cost' sense available, is wise in marketing. // Dictionary definitions are required, but probably will not help with the judgement call. – Edwin Ashworth Oct 20 '17 at 9:15
  • It is meaningless, as an advertising term. – Hot Licks Oct 20 '17 at 12:02

In your context, 'Premium', as a modifier, denotes a commodity of superior quality and therefore also implies a higher price.


  • But Collins ('BrE') has << 4... an offer of something free or at a specially reduced price as an inducement to buy a commodity or service [/ ...] (as modifier) a premium offer >>. But I'd accept that the default sense here is the one you give. The word's a monster. – Edwin Ashworth Oct 20 '17 at 9:25
