I am hoping to sell some of my items at craft fairs, farmers markets.
I want to make a rubber stamp or sterio to print my logo onto recycled (new) double wall corrugated board. The item being wired to it.
After your helpfull advice for 2steps logo and Stacey's packaging, I welcome your comments on my effort ?
Cheers, Dave.

Like the white horse symbol - but have you no other e-mail other than a hotmail one? If not, it would probably be better to leave it off, IMHO

Thanks Penny, wanted to provide a method of contact, ideally my .com website when finances allow.
But thought for now email addy. Perhaps a separate stamp at the bottom of the card ?
Difficult to concentrate with Toyah looking at me like that... Impure thoughts )

Mobile number would be better than a hotmail addy - it will just make what you do look cheap I think... and what you do is beautiful

Sorry about Toyah - think about fly fishing or something

A domain name/website and email neednt be expensive, I think mine cost 8 to set up and about 3.50 a month to maintain and that came with the shopping cart software as well.

Did think of putting my mobile number on, but with my shift work decided that someone phoning me at 11am after a night shift would not do my sales any good !

OK what about cod, there's nothing sexy about cod

It is very cheap to get your own domain - as Sally says, and worth it.

Make that VERY cheap.
Did you know you could be countrycrafts.org.uk for 1.99 a year?

Re the graphic. Large areas of solid colour mean lots of ink and can be messy (esp with a rubber stamp - though texturing the rubber can help).

Can you get your board in green and then put just white print on it?

Dave, you need a corporate logo, one that you'll put on any invoices etc, the website and the banner here.

Do you want the horse as your logo?

(I'll hang back on the banner till you've decided what you want as your corporate logo.

I throw myself at the mercy of the court, and the wit and wisdom of the good people of this forum.
In other words......... dunno, what do you think ?

Has anyone got the time to knock up a few logo ideas for young Dave?

If not I'll have a go but bit busy right now.

.org.uk is reserved for non profit organisations though. So it would be misleading to use that (or .org) .co.uk or .com would be the right TLD to use.

The same goes for your web page Blacksmith, It would benifit from a better address. Perhaps that would be all you needed to put on your logo would be a better link to your web page. Love the logo though.

I could be wrong but I remember reading something about you had to put a proper contact address on web sites now. I remember a tread on one of my forums I will have to go and have a root around.
