    Looks good, your services are to small to be able to read though. Also, Nickel City Outdoor Services seems a little close to the light green line, but I'm just being picky.

    Excellent, Buffalo. I really like it. Incidentally scroll up two inches and look at the logos of our sponsors. Yours is just as good as any of theirs. Now imagine how it will look on your letterhead, your circulars, your invoices, your envelopes, your business card. And now imagine how it will look on your truck. If your truck is white--fine. Trailer white? If not you may have to tweak the colors to get it to show up against whatever background color you have to work with. Perhaps have a slightly different version for the vehicle, in black or very dark green if your truck is red. Make it really big so it can be read at 75 miles an hour. And for the window glass you need to use white across the top of the windshield, and white on your back glass. Or maybe put the logo in an oval of white so it shows up better on a blue truck. Are you going to put it on your shirts? Jackets? On the back of your guys tee-shirts? On your baseball caps? Decals on your mowers? Spreaders? Paint it on your plow blades? Look around--you will find top companies take advantage of every opportunity to get their name before the public. You may be able to get a company slogan on some of your equipment or paperwork. A slogan like, "Where the best costs less" or "Where service is first" or "Improving your property".

    Like the updated version a lot. Simple, effective, professional, clean. Should be a very serviceable logo on future media.

    i like the orig. but the up date is better.....

    make sure you get atleast 500dpi resolution so it can blow up without pixelating.

    i use gimp which is free and like photoshop.
