queensboro limits stitches. I got some stuff from them and my logo was 1"x2". Wasnt really worth the savings over the local guy. I still use them for jackets but shirts and hats are all done up the road from me.

How would the logo work on a yellow shirt? It might really stand out.

I don't know Steve, I was thinking having a yellow shirt though to stand out more, most lawn services here are using white, red, blue, and green; haven't came across ones wearing yellow as of yet.

Finally heard back from the company, they say I must order a shirt with my logo first and then they will send me a proof of what it would look like stitched and if I approve then it will go to production. I'm thinking it will just look better printed, I don't want to take a chance on ordering something that's going to look like crap. How do you think it would like digitally printed on a yellow shirt?

I think it has the potential to look really nice. I think those colors would work well together and you could build on that yellow color to stand out. Yellow truck and trailer in the future too!

Can you post a pic of your logo on here with a yellow background instead of white?

Here is the logo with a yellow background, I think it will look awesome on a yellow trailer and the yellow pickup by just driving around yesterday this would be a major brand exposure, but no other lawn service does this, they drive a normal color truck, and their trailer is either completely white, or black, sometimes with lettering or a magnetic sign, other times no signs at all. What does everyone think?

Here is my suggestion on it. It is tough to work with gradients with logos at times. If the background gradient could remove the white and have it go into the yellow, would that look better?
