Does your business have a name?

Assuming you're in business, does it have a catchy name? Mine doesn't I just use my own name, mostly because I've had so many other businesses with names, for me this is a departure.

What about a slogan? Mine's a real barn-burner "Fine Photo Restorations"

Name is DPG for "Digital Photographics". No slogan although "we are a non profit orginization" might be worth considering. Tom

Well I set up the business name as "Custom Creations" and our logo is of course...a cowboy boot...but a rather colorful one.

bearing in mind that i am not "in business" @ this point, i have given thought to names. initially i had planned on "re:vision", but my advisers have assured me i can expect lots of calls on eyeglasses. too esoteric, they said. i like esoteric, but it prob won't pay the bills. they were prob. right.

a prior grand passion that i thought might become a business was working with concrete, esp. concrete/stained glass stepping stones; concrete garden ornaments. (it did eventually dawn on me that concrete may not be a wise choice for one with back problems) but i did so love the name i had chosen for it, even had business cards (i must be a business! i have business cards!)(akin to "i can't be overdrawn! i still have checks in my checkbook!) for it:

concrete ideas concrete ideas had to format it special to signify my esteem for it. a moment of silence, please

tom, you can't have that slogan, i'm sure i will need it. i guess it will just have to be public domain. you crack me up.

i wonder how you would do it if you wanted color and italic on the same word. concrete ideas ooooh i figured it out. i needed that.

I happen to like "re:vision"

And if you get calls for glasses, remember there's no such thing as bad publicity

doug,

(add an h and you're dough, i just did) my adviser further said that was prob. a good internet name, but for local traffic, too obscure. had first playfully, then seriously, consider spittin images for local. also preservation graphics.

My business name is Lifetime Photo. But for the "life" of me, I can't think up a catchy phrase to go with it!

Hi Vikki,

How about...."Because we believe your photos should last a lifetime" or "Because your memories should last a life time" Something like that, that plays off your business name. OH well, it's just me sticking in my 2 cents again.
