Lawn care t-shirt review.

Creating marketing material can be a challenge. Trying to come up with the right words to use that will grab the readers attention is not as easy as it may appear. In this discussion from the Gopher Lawn Care Business Forum, we see how one entrepreneur came up with a t-shirt design he wanted to wear while out mowing and asked for some critiques of the design before he got them printed.

One lawn care business owner wrote “I’m not the most creative person in the world but in this case I suppose it’s good I wanted a plain and simple tee shirt that will get the point across what do you guys think? Please be completely brutally honest and make any suggestions and shoot down anything I’ve done that you dislike.

I want these t-shirts to be simple, yet get the point across so any suggestions or tips, anything at all would be greatly appreciated. I’ll be printing these within the next 2 days unless I need to change it completely and if needed, I will have to set some time aside to alter their design.”

A second lawn care business owner said “the first phrase I read on your shirt says ‘no heavy machinery.’ I would put that towards the bottom if I used it at all. Instead of having the first thing the reader sees when they look at the shirt is ‘no’, why not instead go with something like ‘free estimates.’ That way the first word read is ‘free.’”

A third added “you should really think about just not talking about the heavy machinery, it makes no sense and there is too much writing on your shirt. For my shirts, I have my name on the front above where the pocket would be. On the back I have my logo large with my number underneath and it is a hit in my town people love it because my business name has to do with my town and it is easy to read and people call me from it when I’m out working on lawns.”

A fourth said “I agree with taking the ‘No Heavy Machinery’ out. What is heavy? You might and probably will expand at some point. What if you buy a garden tractor to keep up with the work and add additional services? We may not consider this tractor heavy but a current or prospect customer may think it is and I honestly don’t see the line as a selling point based on my experience and operating some pretty heavy gear on very expensive properties.”
