Thanks again
My fear is that the "designer" isn't actually a graphic designer and is more of a "logo put together'er". Local sign guy would be my first guess. Either way, that's not demonstrating the eye, or production output, of a legitimate designer. Not even close. If I assumed you did it, and guessed that you have no real background in graphic design, that's not a very good sign.

I look forward to seeing what round 2 brings.

Without starting over from scratch, is there anything specific you feel would make it easier to read?

BRB. Gotta head over to the graphic artist forum and see what they think is causing these spots in my lawn...







Listen to Tony. He's steering you in the right direction.
I did graphics, coding and web design for years man as side hobby, use to code for all PHP Nuke platforms, then went in to wordpress.

Your logo is simple 1 font and 1 vector image used twice.

The T-shirts really help it - having a black background helps it stand out. But sometimes its the all CAPS that makes it difficult to read (and that may just be me).

Even just a larger font size for the first letters, followed by a slightly smaller Font like:

Plowguy- I see what you're saying. Thanks for the feedback!

Southerntide- A local company in collinsville, va called "Casting Logos". I would highly recommend them for their customer service
