    That looks pretty good in green to me. I had another idea after looking at it. Try extending the grass down and putting "lawn and landscape" in white letters on green grass. You could probably enlarge "picket fence" also. It kinda plays you know. Picket on the fence and l&l on the grass.

    I feel kinda bad I started this thread and haven't been on for a couple of days. I started a 2nd shift job this week and life's been a little messed up. Hey grassman, how did you do that? I like it! I understand what you're all saying about the font, I'm just not convinced yet. I downloaded the Paintshop Pro demo, can't afford the real thing just now. Is there a way of arcing the top of a fence? I know the more I look at what I did, in some ways the less I like it. Maybe I shoulda said maybe on the thread. Dave

    I almost forgot Grassman where did you get your fence? Tony I like the idea of the L&L on the grass. If you knew how long I took going back and forth between paintshop pro and publisher to get what I got, well lol probably. Probably took you just a few minutes hunh. Dave

    I drew the pickett fence freehand. Once you make the first pickett the rest are not too bad. The first one is the toughest.

    I have to agree with others, the script is not a good idea. I looks great on screen but from 30ft you are going to be hardpressed to see it well.

    Here are 2 more versions. You are welcome to any of these. They are all done in Adobe Illustrator 10.0 and converted to jpeg but I can pump out just about any kind of output that you would like. Let me know what you would like and I can try to whip it up.

    You are lucky. You have a very unique brand. Branding your product should be very easy if done correctly.

    I like the concept of this one but not the font. That is easy to change.

    Actually I really like the one with the script font and l&l beneath. I am going to attach a file with what is on my truck now. The font is very similar to what I posted but not as fancy. Easier to read I think. You drew those picketts by hand!? I am impressed. I like the phone # but I think having lawn & landscape on one line flows better. Let me know waht you think of this font. Thanks Dave

    I would make the lettering blue, the grass green and the actual outline of the fence black. I really like what you did there grassman.
