    I think it looks pretty good, I'm not big on the color on the right side, but that's just my opinion.

    I gotta agree. The color is raly off. You want to use a background that will force you lettering to jump out, if you want to stay with the white picture, you can frame it with a couple colored lines. The color definitely has to go through, nothing jumps and says here I am, you want it easy to read.

    I do like the way that you simplify the card though, leaving out any extreme specifics.

    I redid mine this year, and actually I am not completely happy with the way they came out, I paid a local company to do them they shrank down the fonts, when they should have removed a line.

    My trucks are getting very simple this year, the name, the logo the phone number and web address. No more no less.

    I like it, I agree though about the color, just a little change there would make a difference. I like the art on there.

    Question though, Your biz name is Holland Landscape, are you more landscape or mowing/maintenance? Just curious. People often refer to me as a "landscaper" and I usually correct them because I do mowing and maintenance only. Landscaping is a whole different business. Of course then some argue that the term "lawn care" means fertilizing/chemical apps, not mowing/service. So it's obviously anyone's interpertation.

    I didn't read the other responses, so I apologize if this is redundant:

    Dump the quotation marks. They're needless. Make it a slogan, not an uncredited quote.
