    I could not do it the way I wanted to. But you get the idea. You want it to be effective ad or business card. You can do it with a light green back round and Really dark green letters etc. I once saw a guy who had a white truck with gold letters on it. That does not work too well. You can not see it. Now on a red truck yes but not white. Both colors are too light. Its good to have a design also. That helps customers identify with your company. Put you logo on everything from your shirts, trucks, letter heads business card etc.

    Oh while I'm on a roll, you can even do a water mark design in the back round. Maybe a tree. A water mark design is a design like those found on checks. It is kinda faded. You can type right over it if you want. It gives your deign a nice effect.

    Hey Your cards look good, and what are the odds of having 2 business owner names on this site, cause I'm guessing your name is Randy Scott, well theirs a user on here that his name is Randy scott too that I know who lives near me.
    I just got my new business cards $50 for 500 cards, green tree with black lettering, raised lettering too.

    leadarrows....The last one is too busy....way too many colors. Also, I personally do not like the "Leaf you Lawn to Us" logo.....sounds like a pun my 3 year old son would make.

    I think "Leave" Your Lawn to Us" is a lot more subtle, and makes more sense.

    Three years old huh? Ouch that hurts. Probably true but ouch anyway. LOL Ok I appreciate every ones opinions and my wife hates them all so its back to the drawing board. My wife thinks I should go with black and white with standard text. Nothing fancy.:cry: That sure takes the fun out of it but enough of you seem to agree with her so I will try something else. I guess the fancy ones will have to go on the back burner for a while I need something to hand out starting last week. My clean up service brings me into contact with the home owners even before they have moved in. I want to introduce myself and be ready to tell them about my lawn services. I can't imagine a better opportunity then when there standing there telling you what a good job you did cleaning there house. I meet the builders and the developers from time to time and it is an opportunity that I have been missing. I hope to rectify that starting this year. The wife hates this one as well but what the heck what do you all think of it?

    I have met two other Randy Scott's in my life and there is one in my locale phone book that I have never met but my daughter had him as a land lord for awhile. Small world... maybe? But I think a lot of women my moms age just loved Randolph Scott. LOL

    The fully insured water mark shows up a lot more here on this form then it does on paper. I guess for now I will just put basic info on a card and go with that. How boring!! Oh well we have started to pick up some more work and I hope I will be to busy to worry about this anyway. Thanks for all the responses and I hope every one has a good year.
