    Re: New Logo , I'd like your input

    OH . the other thing . Each shop out here has piping or a guy running to a leak . I wanted to mix it up , be unique . I am not really counting on the logo to bring in work as much as my own professionalism. I am in Oklahomas city now , moved here this past week-end . On with the show............

      Re: New Logo , I'd like your input

      We have a good friend who is a cartoonist and director. He has directed/drawn cartoons like Batman, My Little Pony, X-Man and so on and so on. When we were ready for graphics I gave him full artistic control over the design.

      We ended up with an animated Stepvan person chasing a bunch of little drips as they ran away. He also took our name which includes an "O" and made it into an International sign for "NO" with one of the drip guys in the middle of the "O". That was many many years ago and it is odd now to see my original artwork on other companies trucks. I'm sure they figured it was canned art and they were free to use it but in fact it was my original art.

        i too was thrown by the level

        but what really throws me is the lawn mower. i've done plumbing for years, but still can't figure out what you use the mower on

        i do like my gas post hole digger. it's great for digging out a cleanout install.

        looks very clean. i'm surprised that your homeowners will insure business equipment. out here we need a separate policy to cover the tools. very expensive to do.

          Sounds like a great truck Utah . I haven"t met the right people evidently but that should change soon . Rick , I was telling my wife I enjoy building so much if I can get my HOURLY RATE helping people with other odds and ends , like lawn mowing , I would certainly go for it . It's A PERFECT FIT plumbing , gas and landscaping .

            Also Rick , the most my insurer will do on tools in the truck is $10,000. 620.00 a year . My homeowners is insuring $30,000 for around $400.00 a year . It doesn't matter which tools are where. The homeowners ins. wanted pics , ser. numbers , invoices , which I keep anyways and update of course , and I keep an extra set of everything in my safe deposit box including discs with pics . of the tools .Every state is different.

              calif is ridiculous when it comes to insurance rates.

              you got a deal on those rates.

                A very neat,well equiped van indeed.

                Ive said it before.There are people reading this forum far less honest than those posting.

                Be careful describing the contents of your vehicle.

                  apf,

                  sorry about getting to the dance late but i like the clean logo look over the usual grapgic(s) intense ones.

                  you state who you are, what you do, and contact info. enough said.

                  BTW, anything on the back doors? someone behind you will also see it and maybe need your services

                    Back door says 24 hour emergency serv. with the number . Good question . Aussie Josh , I figure they know at the min. the plumbing trucks have sewer mach. , hand threaders , drills /saws ...........thanks though . I've got a engine disabling alarm , ultra tinted windows ,. and cages on the windows , loaded with ins. so that's as good as I can do .

                          mark, that's a whole lot of plungers for someone that doesn't do drain cleaning anymore. even i don't have that many plungers

                          plus my plungers are not so valuable that i need to protect them

                            I would pay a Graphic Artist to rework your logo. In the long run I think you will be happier. I think with a professionally designed logo you will receive a better response . When it comes to design you should leave it to the experts. A good Graphic Artist will be able to take your ideas and make them into something memorable with a professional look. To me right now your van looks clean, but not very professional . Kind of mom and pop. If that's what your going for then great.

                            I think with your name there is a lot of potential to have a great logo. Put the creative aspect into the hands of a professional. After all when your customers call they want a plumber not a Graphic Artist. My good friend is a Graphic Artist he has designed both my wife's and my business logos. With are input he designed logos far better then we could have done.

                              Are you kidding I pay a bunch extra to stay anywhere but in a Casino. Too much smoke , people and noise. I don't know why they can't design those places so you don't have to walk through the casino to find your room (yes I do).

                                Mark, I never saw you as a casino person, thats why I never bothered to ask you, the others would have said the same, if they had the chance to meet you in person like I have.
