Question Changing Names?

Hey Everyone.

I'm in a quandary here. For some time, I've been thinking about changing the name of my Sign "Company." I've always been opposed to having my name in it, wanting something a bit more - well - "creative," I guess you could say. Well, I've come to the conclusion that my original name hasn't made a name for itself (no pun intended, maybe ) So if you don't mind, Ken and I have been thinking on this, and we've come up with "KB Custom Signs". I say KB because the last thing I need is "BK Custom Signs", having the same initials as Burger King LOL

So, if you could help me out, I would be eternally grateful. If you can think of another name, I'll take the suggestions, and Ken and I will discuss them For now, Yes, or No... KB Custom Signs?

Barb

You really gave me a scare Barb, for a minute I thought you were going to leave Ken. I sure am glad everything is okay.

Even though I like your original name I think KB Signs will be easier for people to remember and associate with sign making. Just my opinion.

So you think it should be "KB Signs" instead of "KB Custom Signs" Richard?

Either way, Barb. The word custom could be assumed but I think the word sign is a necessity. When I used to start a new business we used to roll play answering the phone with different names until we found one that sounded right to us. Worked great for us. A company name is one of the most important parts of a business, in my opinion. Best of luck with your decision.

Not so sure on the & in there, Rick. If I were to put in the &, I would go B&K because Barb and Ken rolls better than Ken & Barb. That's why we did KB. Make sense? But Ken kinda likes KB Sign Worx... this may be another "we pick the ones we would like, and you pick the final" like we did for Bentley

While I admit K&B Signs would be easier to answer the phone with, I feel Custom should be in there somewhere; maybe just on printed things, cards, ads, etc. I just don't think that everyone is going to automatically think your signs are custom made otherise, which of course they are. Yeah, I think everything in print should say K&B Custom Signs, then answer the phone however you want. I think that is what I would do anyway.
