I suppose i could keep the JK and if someone asks whats the K for ill say my old partners name was kaleb.

Then go a little bit into how he didn't do much and i had to let him go in order to keep the customers happy. and that might be a little positive reinforcement for them when they think of if ill be reliable.

What do you think?

Right now my slogan is where service is always in season but i dont really advertise it so i could easily change it..

to be honest steve your post confused me a little bit

when they say HI-JK is it like fgHIJKlmn
or like Hello JK haha

i like the license plate idea as well but it seems like too much trouble as a small business owner maybe if it gets to the point where i have company trucks (multiple) i can do that..

but i hate the bmv sooo much..i dont want to wait 3 hours to find out its already taken or to get it and wait 4 weeks for it haha.

theres these license plate frames by bell i think..i saw them at kmart
there silver and have customizable text on them with plastic letters you snap through the back and then seal so they dont fall out..

it looked pretty good not too cheasy..so that might be helpful..
put my name on top and number on bottom..or slogan on bottom..

thanks for all the advice once again

That's why I try not to involve any names into my business name. I took everything in consideration before I registered my name

I had Just in Time Lawn Services but then I decided to change it to Yard since I would eventually do more than lawn so I renamed it Yard.

Hopefully you'll be able to find something easy.

Wish you good luck

I really wish you didnt take that name justin because id love to have it hahahaha

I already handed out quite a few flyers for fall with JK lawn care on there but i still dont think its too late..
maybe change the logo up a little bit and play around with it until i get it right.

if it dosnt work maybe its for the best and it should remain the same.

I HIGHLY encourage new business owners to not include a partners name..its too messy ahaha

I was playing around with some images from here and some texts and thought these looked neat ( not all ) some just messing around..

tell me what you think. if you like a text but not the image or the text needs an image..
give me some ideas.

thanks

Your logos look great.

Maybe you could go with a slogan of "We give your lawn that Just Kut Look."
