Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
from twins_lawn_care - "I think (but could be wrong) what Gopher was getting at, is that Progressive's logo is more adapted size wise in the layout of it to fit on the vehicle where it can be larger. Eager Beaver needs more of a square area to blow it up to the same size, and be able to read it easier.

they both look good as a logo, but Progressive's will stand out, and be easier to see from a distance, or at speed."


tonygreek - "that's exactly right, twins. when designing logos, people often don't put enought thought into how it will actually render on various media or applications. wide, short logos are difficult because the width takes away from height increases required to see it from any distance. the same goes for tall, narrow logos. the goal should be something in that 2+:1 ratio."


Soupy - "That is why my designer gave me variations of my logo. He gave me files with just the logo (no name), one with name, one with the logo positioned on top, one on right. One with number, etc. But then I had him go a step further and just design everything that it will be used on. He makes variations when needed to fit each application.

That is why I think a logo is more then just a name with something added to it. I use just my logo (no name) as a water mark. But I see many (most) logos that if you take the name out you really don't have much a logo."


JustALawnGuy - "I like the Bousek logo: simple, elegant, understated and to me it conveys quality and expensive price."


drsogr - "I think a logo, should look like its professionally designed! I see too many logos that look like they were done in the paintbrush program. I great logo should have a flow to it as well, it shouldn't be too choppy. It also should be simple enough that it is easily recognizable.

Fine Lines - looks like it was thrown together...I really don't see how it could be a top logo design.

Hamons - Very recognizable. Clean logo, flows very well. Looks as if it would look great on anything.

Luxury - doesn't look very luxerious at all. Its a nice logo, but doesn't fit the company name at all. Hamons logo looks luxerious.

Boesek - doesn't fit landscaping at all. If I saw that logo, I would have no idea it was a landscape company, unless I read it.

Progressive - Simple, to the point, easily recognizable. Looks very nice.

Eagle Beaver - Great logo, easily recognizable, I am just not much for animals in logos. Definitely catches the eye. Would look great on the back of a shirt!"


two_planks - "Yeah, my logo wouldn't work to well on the door of a truck. I actually did take putting it on a vehicle into consideration. I have a removable chip box on the back of my truck. The sides are 4x8 so I can put a 4x4 lggo on the side of the chip box. When the box is off, signage will be on the back window of the truck. On other vehicles it will go on the rear quarter panel, not the door, and there is a lot more roome back there for a larger logo.


To answer the question about having multiple colors. These days full color printing just doesn't cost that much more. I'd rather spend a little more money and have a highly recognizable image. The thing I love about that logo is that if you see one of my adds or get one of my cards with it on them, you're not likely to forget about me. Thats the biggest reason I chose it."
