    Hi thereI agree. The grey and orange, second last one looks best to me. CheersSophPS Is there some way to work the “event stationery…” line in, without including it in the logo? It’s probably handy for people who don’t know your business…

    I like the one that’s next to last – but prefer it in grey adn pink. Somehow, pink goes better with card designs (imho)! :)Shoudl definitely include the dragonfly anyhow!

    I like the first one but I would like it more if the bean was in a different color.

    I am glad I stopped by today!!! ;)I love the dragonfly next to the P in paper. Its hard for me to pick one….I go through this all the time when designing stuff for my JD Design website. You can drive yourself crazy over stuff like this!!!! I like the black in your logo you have now, it stands out better. I vote for the 3rd one,…it seems to jump out the most to me. Sorry I typed a novel. lol ;) good luck.

    eh… i commented before, but it seems to have disappeared.i voted for the first one; grey and pink.the order of bold letters to non-bold is nice and clearer cuz it’s grey first then pink. and the dragonfly is pretty.

    I like second to last one. But I dont like the grey – I think I would like combining pink and orange.

    hello – I like the plain (no dragon fly) pink paper and grey bean. For me this one stands out and is most appealing aesthetically. : )

    I like the second one from bottom. But with gray with pink. I do like the one in the middle but i think the dragonfly gives it a hit of a personal touch. I love the type on this. I know it is difficult to create a logo for your own company. For me when it comes to others its simple but when it comes to designing something for yourself its difficult. I like your logo designs.

    Well you don’t know me from Eve but I stumbled across your blog in my search of fairy wing patterns and saw your plea for help. If voting is still allowed I love the first one (the one listed right after your ‘current’ one). Try Flickr for feedback generally if posted and asked in an ‘open’ fashion the feedback is pretty helpful.Cheers
