I definitly like the darker green logos. i love the look of it though. Try to imagine it on all of you clothes, trucks, invoices, folders, equipment. Would it fit everywhere.

If i ever redesign my logo i will make it one long line, rather than on top of eachother.

Ex.

Green Cut Lawn Care

not

Green Cut
Lawn Care


Its hard to center logos with a big symbol at the start of the logo to look asthetically pleasing.

looks good, I prefer the dark green with the diamond. Best thing is to keep it simple, but catchy. My sister in law did mine for me. It's awesome, looks great on my letterhead, and other printed items like business cards, fliers, etc. only problem is, is that it;s too fancy to screen print or get embroidered. So she went back and dumbed it down some so I could get some iron on patches made for my carhartt jackets and a few hats. I can't complain cause it was free for me. But if you're paying or bartering, get something with 2 or 3 colors, that;s simple and affordable to get printed on t-shirts or other clothing, but still looks fancy on paper products. BTW, yard signs charge more for extra colors. I think the one with the diamond is perfect for those reasons.

slap your logo everywhere. put it on all your letters, invoices, estimates, website, facebook, trucks, equipment, clothing, your wife's hoohaa's....everywhere. advertising is a PITA but branding really helps in my opinion. i'm tossing around the idea of getting some toilet paper made up with my logo on each square. there are very few people that don't use toilet paper and the ones that don't probably aren't shopping for lawn care anyway. maybe Ill pass out a roll in every mailbox within 5 miles of my shop

The one with the diamond I think is the best one, and even the one right beside it is good. Don't much care for the one on top.

Definitely not the first one as the big 'S' makes it difficult to read the 'stifel seasonal services'

I think the bottom right one is the best although I would ask your designer to make it a darker green like the other 2...then its perfect!

I would do the top one, but take the black "S" out of it & have the logo "S" as the "S" in Stifel. That would be golden.

I like the one on the bottom right. I'm not sure about the term seasonal services. There may be questions about what services you offer. Just my opinion. The logo looks very clean and professional.
