    I've seen alot of logos and graphics on here that contain too many different colors. I had to learn this the hard way, but the more colors you have, the more your printing, vinyl, ect. will cost. I'm talking hundreds of dollars in difference from a 2 color to a 4 color design.

    A great logo/graphic will draw the reader's attention without costing a fortune to print.

    Actually you need a logo that will work with all colors as well as one or two colors.
    My vehicle signs are full blown high res. color graphics with several colors. The yard signs are the exact same file condensed to one color.
    The door hangers are two color etc.
    Some things are worth the extra bucks for color and some just are a waste of cash. Here's an example of what I mean.

    I only use 2 color, Full color in my market is a waste, unless you are TGCL. Black and White also does the job.
