Well still stuck in Alaska until next summer but using this season to build up equipment and get everything ready. Getting my truck lettered and bought a 6.5'x16' open trailer. Think I will wait to get my Toro 36" Walk behind and 60" zero turn when I get back to the lower 48. Prices are way too high up here.

What do you think of the lettering?

This is what I have come up with for logos.

The goal is to get the mowing side up and going next season and by the 3 year mark I would like to get a landscaping crew together.

That looks really good! Is that a photoshop version or are the signs actually on the truck now?

Photoshop version. Still trying to improve my logo. Got another version.

I think I like this one the best.

I wouldn't put the list of offered services on the truck. You never know if you want to remove one, or add one.

It's also a lot of text, I'm trying to visualize it from a potential customers perspective.

Having a list of services on your truck stops people from calling you (give or take).

I just have, "BREEZE LAWN SERVICE" on my truck, people will call to see what I have to offer, rather than not calling,

Which means I do not have the opportunity to feel out the potential customer & perhaps sell them on another service I offer that they might be interested in.

The minimum I would put is probably, "Lawn Care & Landscapes"

Does this help?

Stuck in Alaska? If I could only be so lucky! No pity here..... LOL:D Summers are Beautiful there. I spent 9 years there and loved every minute of it. What's wrong with $5-$6 for a gallon of milk or $3 for a loaf of bread?:eek:

I agree with the lettering less is much much more. Get some take a card holders from Artie also. Phone number needs to be bigger and use a different font. Arial or times new roman or veranda are the best for readability and make them bold.

On the logo I would drop the lettering until the phone number is in the grass and change the number to white in color and make it bigger.

What about the number on the front fender? Would that leave more room to make the company name bigger on the door?

Not a big fan of the front fender but it might look good on the rear above the wheel. Plus put the logo and phone number on the back window. I think that will work out perfectly.
