Creative, Catchy Business Name

    The best name you can come up with is one that your customers would like and remember - I am not a customer nor have been a customer of this type of business thus I could not provide you a name.  However, I can give you some ideas.

    Why not Ronnie & (your name)'s Wood Lettering & Design.  Nothing better then telling your customers or potential customers what you actually do through your business name.  John's used cars is better than PHA Industries - you know what john does but could not even guess what PHA does.

    Or, get out in your community (I assume this is a locally based business) and talk to other people about your business then ask them what they think you should call it - they are your target market - they would provide the best insight.

    Or, take a $100 or so and run an ad in your local paper asking for input on your business name.  Desribe the business and ask people to send you name ideas via email, your facebook page or set up a simple website that collects that information.  You could even offer the winner a free letter design or something.  Not only will this help you with a name that your customers will remember - but it will also easily help you promote your business in your community.

    I'm not sure if what BMT2010 suggests is not too long.

    I'm not sure if this helps, but when we chose ours - we just stuck a really positive word before what we did. ...I think your company name should identify what you do. It makes it easier for passersby to understand what you do, particularly if you're on a highstreet and rely on passing trade.
