Sign design help

I need to have a new sign for my business designed, and hoped that you all can help. I have nothing in mind, no colors are picked out and no logo has been picked out yet. The name of my business is Highland Lakes Auto Care.

If you guy's are willing to help, like I said I have nothing in mind on design and or colors. the only thing I need to stay with is block letters for the Auto Care the Highland Lakes can be a bullet or anything you can think of.

Thanks in advance

And no I am not trying to advertise just get ideas on a new sign.

Steve

Need a sign layout? No problem.

Hi thrableere, Jared here from All-Pro Signs & Graphics. Need a sign layout? Just let me know. I need some hi resolution pictures of hot rods. Line drawings will work better. Anyway, my email: allprosigns@verizon.net. Send me an email and I'll blast out a layout for you.

Jared.

Now ... Steve ...
I was in the sign business for almost 30 years.
Have you ever noticed how the sign guys' sign is almost always PLAIN ... and simple ???

I suggest a plain sign ...

Highland Lakes ( on a half circle )
Auto Care on a straight line below it.

White background with either Black, dark blue or Red lettering ... in a Plain BOLD style ...

Then the phone number
Easy to read ... easy to remember ... always make sure their is a small unused 10 to 15% border around the sign ... so as NOT to distract from reading the script ...

Just my 2 cents ...

1931,

I like the concept, however, I think the Highland Lakes should be on the top line of the wrench and the Auto care centered in the wrench.

One other note, with technology the way it is, the wrench may limit folks thining of the shop if you know what I mean. Just like Duece stated, keep it simple.

My 2c
