    The services in red is to make them stand out, right? That just doesn't look right to me, makes them stand out in a bad way. Try fitting in the services in the same font/style and make the "servicing the capital area" smaller and less of a focus. I do like the overall look.

    Look Good but I agree with DSSL they look like warning signs and mean while they are telling the public what you do.

    well I love to critique other's advertising, but I won't criticize it:rolleyes:

    what is the finale size? are these for print? what's your logo/slogan?

    they are very slick looking however that also makes them a bit hard to read like your web address, especially if those are being reduced down, and they won't look good most newspaper advertising sections with all the color blending. I too agree the red isn't the best of choice, why not just a plain white background at that point..

    I like your companys name, it sounds like a company that really does have the "solution". I think by you stating the snow descriptions separately (plowing, salting, removal, walkways) it takes away from the great professional name you have. I would rather see something along the lines of "Full Service Snow & Ice Management". Also, if your insured, let that be known. The visa/mastercard/discover/amex logo wouldn't hurt either if you accept them. A professor at the Ross School Of Business/ University of Michigan once told me that an index taken in early 2005 showed that 85% of consumers used the company that appeared to be more professional than the others. By using the words "solutions" "management" "fully insured" and "visa/mastercard accepted" I think you could projected yourself as a top company in your market.

    Thanks for the coments.

    The final size is 4x6 but can be adapted to business card not for print. High gloss - and he will do the both seasonal businesses on either side. PM me - you may not believe the cost.
