Now comes the serious spending. As part of my lease agreement, I am required to work with a specific sign company and have them build me a specific sign based on the other signs being used by the businesses in the building I'm moving into. The landlord wants everything to be uniform outside of the building and I understand that. So, I contacted the company a few days ago and talked with them in great detail about what I'm looking for and what colors I want to go with (black and white, please). They are very sweet and helpful people, and now I know why. They make a LOT of money. It's going to cost me a whopping $762.05 to have the sign made and installed (with a permit from the city, mind you) the right way. Ouch. I'm going through with it, of course. I'm not going to argue about another thing before this shop opens. I'm so excited about it and I want this to be a positive experience.
Wanna see the logo? My wonderful husband designed it for me (he remembered my extreme fascination with spirals) and I chose the font.
Here's the basic logo for advertising, business cards, mailers, etc.:
And here's the sign:
I chose the larger font for the sign because it'll be hung waaaaay up high on the building and the little font wouldn't be legible from way down on the sidewalk, especially to shorties like me.
What do you think?
