    I like the second one better. It seems easier to read.

    I would go with the first one because the second one its kind of hard to tell that it is grass and not something else.
    also i would go with just a little bit more bold on the lettering.

    Honestly, I would just remove the goofy grass on top. The name is great but, the grass looks stupid or childish. I never understood why some people insist to have over the top logos? trust me Ive been their and trying to save you the embarrassment.
    use just the name.
    Oh yea, with the patch of grass, it looks like u forgot to cut it.:laugh:

    well , i dont mind either one, at first look i liked the second one

    --from a managment stand point , Keep this in mind ..

    Im not saying let your budget and price control the image for your company

    but , My logo has 2 colors = more money in prining and on lettering

    also i have a very hard time using my logo on anything but a white or light grey background. I did make a new one for darker backgrounds but now it requires another color (3) = more Money, but maybe i should have tried it on other backgrounds first ..and gone a different dirrection with it

    you might consider the size of the grass on top, if you go with the shorter one it might leave you with more room on your business card to print important information - keep in mind that doesnt do anygood , if your card and logo dont attact them in the first place

    one other thing, I know with my truck lettering, the "rolls" of vinal they use are like 24 inches? so depending , if you used the shorter grass, could you get two "logos" on one 24 inch roll and have it be a good size for your truck? if so , then again you save yourself money

    Im not saying either one is better than the other, I like them both , but sometimes if you think about things, you can save yoru self some pennies...when your starting off, pennies add to dollars, which is important these days
