Project description

My Company:

I use expensive equipment to print and cut vinyl decals for vehicles and stores with an emphasis on first responders like military, police, fire, EMS, and related topics. I've been making and applying reflective decals on police vehicles and ambulances for example. I do general sign making too. My profession is actually in law enforcement, but I have progressed into this.


I chose the name Thin Line Signs because of my emphasis and support for first responders. The thin line shows respect for certain groups of first responders, e.g., the thin blue line for police. There are others like the thin red line for fire, white for EMS, gold for dispatch, silver for corrections, green for border patrol, military, etc.


What I Want:

I want to incorporate the thin line and something to emphasize the sign company with support for first responders. Don't limit to this, but things I like might include a tactical look, shield, badge, emergency lights, etc. within the design because of my law enforcement background. I considered something with the different thin line colors but I don’t want a cartoon-like or rainbow-like appearance. 

I would prefer an emblem with the company name following. The entire logo should have more horizontal length similar to a police car with the city logo up front followed by the saying running down the side. I'm a fan of black and gold colors, things with textures, glossy metal like appearances etc. It can't be too overpowering, something clean and professional. I'm open to your ideas.
