    I posted a version of this logo here a while back, but it was a project that was put on the back burner. I decided to revisit it a bit the last couple days between other projects.

    Not sure where I'm going to go with the back yet. Little by little.

    Are you getting into making signs or is this for the design services still? You were making noises about carving the other day...

    I want to try to promote both my design services locally as well as go after some more creative type signage. In the past, I did vinyl graphics, yard signs etc. But I've decided to work on my skills to offer some more unique stuff...that's why I'd like to learn to do some handcarving and dimensional foam work.

    Looks good! We've been printing our retro themed cards on a 16pt silk stock, and they're turning out pretty sweet.

    I think you should tilt the whole circle just slightly. skew it towards the left.
    (not distorted)
    Give it some life.
    Love....Jill

    Yes. We do a ton of stationery design after branding is complete, and offer printing as an add-on to our stationery design package. We do this to control quality, and offer our clients the convenience of us overseeing. Typically we print 95% of everything we design, including collateral. Many local printers can't print them as we've designed them (full bleeds on envelopes, including flaps, etc).

    Sorry, Dan. I meant that for Phillip. I was being facetious because he's working on my cards.

    For the real retro feel, I would look into letter press on really thick stock (165lb), maybe even edge tipping (color the edge)
