    Ok, this is my proof. This is what I want, simple, plain and easy to read. I dont want it like so many people do, cluttered and hard to read and advertise everything that they do........... The phone number is going to be the length of the trailer and bigger so dont mention that lol. Just wanted to get yalls opinion. Just thought Id throw my logo in there. I wanted it to be the same as the logo but this is close enough and its gonna be done in a bright orange so it stands out on my truck and trailer. My truck will be done the same way so it matches and combines everything.

    Im thinking whether or not I should advertise that Im insured. If I do I was thinking of centering it under lawn and landscape, llc

    Im also thinking about putting the big walker logo under chiefs. IDK tho. I think only people that cut grass would understand that. Most people dont understand the cut of a walker and wouldnt see that as a positive advertisement

    I like the fonts. I like the sizes and spacing. I just don't like the colors. Not enough contrast against the trailer, and the colors themselves are too neutral. Thus, too plain. Also, forget the walker logo under "Chief's". let walker do their OWN advertisement. You have room on the side to do more for yourSELF. Toward the bottom, and toward the front, list some of your operations (Mowing, Shrub Care, etc.). As far as the fonts go, try a bit more orange (I would do a black and orange, or a REAL DARK brown and orange if you're set on an earth tone scheme). Also, the letters need to be off set with a large shadowing. THAT would make them stand out.

    What do you mean by shadowing? Right now its kinda outlined in a bright orange. But i was thinking I wanted it to be a bright orange (like the orange that is on hunters camouflage and then like you said outlines in blk

    What do you think about doing the bright orange that is outlining the letters a little thicker? I was just thinking that if the outline was a little thicker it would help the letters stand out and "pop" even more?
