    It's official. I have ordered the new cards. I have been making my own at home with an old label program. It worked OK I just never got the logo to look quit right.
    So I had a professional re do it and now I have an official logo I an use on my cards, paper work, truck, website(also under construction), shirts and hats.

    See if you can tell which one is the old one and which is new.

    I like it! I'm assuming the second one is the new design? It looks very professional.

    By the way, is that your daughter in your avatar? She's a little cutie! You must be proud.

    I'm guessing it would be the first. Very nice card. I like cards that aren't too busy, all it really needs to say is what you do, who you are, and how to contact you.

    The second one is the new logo. I wanted less tree because I don't do much tree work. nothing I can't reach from the ground.
    I wanted to simplify it.

    The new cards do have under the line of grass

    my cell phone number
    Complete Lawn Maintenance
    Paul Arens mailing address home phone
    my web site e-mail

    Yes that is our little Josie. She's about 1and1/2 when that was taken about a year ago.

    I am finaly figuring out how to scan and resize and popst pictures.

    Here's the whole new card.

    Looked into getting t-shirts and hats with the logo today.
    Working more on the website this tonight:D

    Been giving a few bids, signed up a coupel for the season, and even got one pre-paid fertilizer program.:D

    I'm starting to get pumped for the season.
    My wife is getting really tired of listening to me talk about nothing but lawns:rolleyes: :)
