We have been beating ourselves up over the past year on designing a new (modified) logo to help better represent our services. Finally after about 50 different drafts, and 3 finalists, we have decided on what you see.

Additionaly, we needed to come up with a clean design for letting the trailers. We wanted to keep the costs down, since it can easily add up when you start talking about lettering a number of trailers along with the vehicles.

Heres what we came up with. The only thing left to decide is the coloring of services text. Black or Tan.

The pictures dont show it well but the brown background is a random paver pattern. The design will carried onto the trucks (still working that design).

Tan writing in the paver strip. I like it especially if the design carries over to the trucks.

We will also have a few other things printed up such as the ICPI cert, NCMA, and our MHIC#. These will probably be installed somwhere to the right of the door, perhaps on the lower portion of the door.

Have not decided if we want to include the logos of our Manufacturers. (only those of which we are preferred contractors for)

sounds like tan it is.

I'm headed to the print shop monday to give them the design proof, and hopefuly finalize this thing. I hate to say, as simple as it looks, it has taken rather a long time to get it to this point. I cant wait to see it in person.

Do you use this as just a hardscape trailer or is it a multi use trailer? I would like to see a few pics of the inside if you have it set up for just hardscapes. Are you staying busy this year?

Actually, this was going to be our Hardscape trailer. However, we are keeping it for lawn maintenance until we get our Property purchased and a pole barn put up. Meanwhile, we have a larger 20' which we we're going to downsize to a 14' for hardscape installs, but have decided to keep the 20'er. So as time and work permits, we will probably convert to using 14'ers for hardscape, and open trailers for lawn care.

We worked a long time trying to come up with something that represented what we do, with color and images, while still keeping it simple and professional.

I believe the cost is going to be $1500 - $1800. Waiting to hear back from the print shop.

Did you guys ever buy a new truck? I remember you saying that you were looking last fall.

is it tacky to put plywood signs or other types(maybe like a proffesionally made, metal sign) on an open trailer?
