    Do you like "Affordable Lawn Service" or "Progressive Turf Management & Landscapes". I don't have a logo for my new one.

    i think the word progressive would be an easier read if the R started out larger than it is (but obviously still smaller than the P.

    so that there is less of a increase in letter size up to the E

    and maybe if the E was the same size as the P, would balance better.

    just a thought :angel:

    Remember, people care about what neighbors think about them!

    If they see a truck labeled "affordable". they will think that they are cheap.

    If they see a truck labeled "Progressive", they will think they are better off than they really are!

    Its a no-brainer. Progressive is a classy name.

    Good luck.

    I think Progressive is a better choice also, and as with the others that have posted I think the logo needs improvement.

    Just my opinion but, if your trying to use the name progressive getting bigger like that, starting out with the "P" being large and then the next letter smaller seems to defeat the purpose. Maybe other people wouldn't perceive it like I do, but to me that concept would need to have the "P" being the smallest letter..

    I would stay away from Affordable sounds cheap and not too professional. I like progressive.

    Thanks for the honest opinions. I have been using Affordable for the last 3 years and kind of thought that it sounded a little cheap and less professional. I will work on the logo. I just thought the progressive gettitng progressively larger was a neat idea.

    thanks again
  9. I like Progressive
