This is my first feeble attempt with paintshop pro to make a logo. Comments and ideas would be appreciated. Dave

IMO Looks nice on paper, looks nice on the computer, but in the real world? Will that fit on a letterhead? Will it fit on the side of the truck? On your uniforms? Will anyone be able to read that font from 10-15 feet away from your truck or hat or shirt? Probably not, its a difficult font to read, and gets more difficult the further away you get from it. It is a nice font, just difficult to read from afar, and you want your potential clients to know that name of that company doing that wonderful work down the street. Read the other "LOGO help" thread going right now also. Good luck & have fun designing.

Love the name. It creates a strong visual in the mind and is likely to be remembered. The logo should include a "picket fence" image and you may want to experiment with various typeface options.

Thanks guys. I don't know why this looks so big on the post. It sure dosen't print out anywhere near that big. Don't think I'ld put all of that on a hat. Probably just the name. I have a jpeg of a p.fence I just haven't figured out how to incorporate it with out it looking like it was added on. Again any suggestions? I am going to try and attach another file. It'll probably be obvious what I did, but it does give an idea of what a fence would like on there. Dave

IMHO. I would leave out the services and phone # and put on the tail gate or something. Extend the pickett fence the same width as the turf and, take a little off the top of the fence, seems a little high to me.
