Probably because you are saving it in a format that doesn't support
transparency, like JPEG.  If you do that, it asks you to flatten the image,
and will fill in transparency with the background color (more or less).  If
you want to maintain transparency, keep the logo in xcf, or png (they both
support 8-bit transparency)


Ok, I know this is silly... but I am a baby in Gimp. Please bear with me...and thanks to everyone who has been answering my question.

That was what I was doing so that fixes that issue.
Now,  the instructions given is using a texture background. How can I just make a logo with a transparent background and then save it as mentioned above?

New --- size, background transparent -- add text --- bump map--- now what? I don't see what I did?
I know this is silly but....
