Default Here's my new logo

I have other images I use too, but for instance.... I want to have a bunch of new uniform shirts made (maybe hats too) for the guys going into this season but I needed a good one color logo to imprint on that stuff. I did full color heat press shirts last time (last spring) & they have cracked & peeled already. They look like crap now. I want to do a single color screen print. So here's what I have come up with so far for the design. I have it white on green because that's most likely the shirt color & print color I'll use.

Thoughts?

I like it because it's good, solid and simple!

I look forwards to seeing it on a shirt and hat!

Who designed that logo, and how much did you pay?

Hey Chuck, I like the new Logo, I am a big fan of simple LOGO'sm i think they stick in the mind better, and are easier to remember.

Jim,

I designed it from scratch myself. Why do you ask? Need a logo done? Pm me with what you'd like or any ideas you have for it. I'll see what I can do.

I have always liked Jim's marketing and image. I think his red logo is bold and really stands out. There are not too many red lawn care business logos out there. It was a great move to do that.

I just asked because it didn't look like it was done by a professional designer. And I don't mean any offense by that. I know everyone's sensitive to their own work. That's why I asked. I didn't want to start ripping on your work.

It's not bad. I'd say it's about as good as most lawn care companies. It's just that it could be better. A professional graphic designer could take that concept and make it look really top notch.

For around $100-$200 you could have a professional designer make you something really catchy like this;



or this;



or this;



or this;



Just some examples.

aaaahhhhh, No Mr. Jim. I do understand your point. However as I stated at the start of this thread. I am going for a simple, single color design on this one for screen printing on uniform shirts.

I have other logos & designs done I've done in full color that do look better. I still realize even those could look better for a couple hundred bucks, But hey.... I'll settle for pretty damn good for free right now.

The t shirts will look something like this:
I am also including a full color logo I designed last week for my Aunt who own an in-home-nursing business for the elderly just to show you some other work I've done.
