What do you guys think?

The color is actually going to be a saftey green. I am also thinking of getting some made in a kiwi green too.

Here is an idea I had, have got grass? and my logo w/ ph# over the heart, then on the back of the shirt, have my logo really big and my biz name and ph# really big.

looks pretty good, everything is laid out well. I dont think the "got grass?" is very professional though, but other than that great! I am looking into making shirts aswell.

Yeah, I am kinda reconsidering it, but it is a clever slogan don't ya think? What would be a better slogan?

Mine personally is "Quality Service From The Ground Up." I do like the creativity on the got grass? too. alteast its pretty original.

I saw a really stupid slogan the other day..."fire em' and hire (company name)"

Or am I the only one that thought that was stupid?

Thanks! Just because it is so origional, and no one around here uses it, I think I'll stick to got grass?. I really appreciate your input though!

The best one I have heard of so far is, "exceptional service, exceptional lawns". The guy who has that slogan has over 200 yards and I just talked to a shindaiwa dealer who said he has bought about 12 8510s. ($550ea.)

I would put the "got grass" part on the back, across the shoulder blade area, up high to get attention. Might look better than on someone's big beer gut...lol Then maybe your name and logo at the left chest area. Good job though- hope it works out well for you.

My slogan which I have used before is, "When your grass is gettin' tall, give us a call" By the way, I like the shirts.

"Got Grass" kind of sounds like you are looking to make a score.

got grass is a good slogan...there is a place here called "the grass pad" that deals with everything green...their commercials say: the grass pad's high on grass", and they know their SH#$, too. It works for them here in KC, and they have several stores across the city...go with it!!!

A few years back I had a few college guys working for me and when the season came to a end I figured I would make them some company shirts that were funny. So, they worked in the sprinkler division and after some thought I had a few shirts made that on the back said: "So what do you do? We lay pipe to keep your bushes wet." I guess they were a big hit on campus but it came back to bite me when 3 years later one of the guys was directing traffic for a large festival on a main road and of course that was the shirt he was wearing. I was so stunned I stopped traffic and gave him my shirt since the city he was in we had over 150 customers that could have seen it.

Thanks!!! We wanted a professional look and I think we found it.. And no numbers because if you look at all the major companies they dont have it either. And I know were not a major company but if poeple really want our business they will ask for a card... And we wont have to deal with those people who call around for the best deal and be cheap with us!

All the best

Thanks for the input guys! the main reason I was getting them in saftey green, was because my dad said bright colors were what I needed. I just thought of this today, got grass sounds like something a hippie would ask.........

I don't think the phone number is necessary. You are just trying to get name recognition. If my number wasn't part of my logo... I would take it off everything.

Having a slogan like got grass makes you stand out in a good way I think. It's not obscene, and people will tend to remember it.

On the back of mine I have,"where we cut grass not corners." But I would have to agree, Got Grass, does sound like a hippy thing and it isn't all that original.

theres a company here where i live. they have a giant yellow bread truck that says 'got grass'. it looks horribly unprofessional. if you use that saying just be professional about it, nice image, nice logo, and the saying will come across the right way.

Do you have a link to the company that you got these from?

How was the quality of the shirts, and did they shrink a lot?

Thanks!
