Client Brand & Embroidery Update

Client Brand & Embroidery Update

March 15, 2019 by

Usually we build a logo for a client, we ship the final logo designs off and that's that. However, Adam & Amber Traylor of Hunt to Harvest were so excited about their new brand, that they were gracious enough to send us sample hats to the 3plains team. I thought that was pretty cool of Adam to do, as I think that shows a level of gratitude above and beyond the client relationship.

The Ever-Changing World of Website Design

The Ever-Changing World of Website Design

December 22, 2016 by

Designing for the web is a rollercoaster ride of fads and technology. Every time someone comes up with some new trick with HTML5, or CSS3, or even a javascript library everyone wants to jump on the bandwagon to “keep up with everyone else”. Here’s the problem with that. The latest fads don’t work for everyone. New languages and new technology aren’t always better. The old adage “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” rings truer than ever these days.

30 Awesome Custom Deer Hunting Logos Designed by 3plains

30 Awesome Custom Deer Hunting Logos Designed by 3plains

March 03, 2016 by

30 logos were tough to pick from our large portfolio of deer hunting logos, so I narrowed them down to logos that had a whitetail or mule deer silhouette, rack, European mount, typical or untypical rack and stayed away from the combination deer hunting logos. We will follow up in a few months with our combo deer logos.

Custom Logo for Whitetail Deer Ranch

Custom Logo for Whitetail Deer Ranch

July 01, 2015 by

Here's another example of a custom logo 3plains designed for one of customers for his whitetail deer ranch in Mississippi. It's amazing how many quality guides and outfitters are out there that have been in business since the 90's without an official logo. It's as simple as a whitetail buck on your wall.

Here's one example to show you how to come up an idea and how we can execute.

Recovering from a Google penalty

Recovering from a Google penalty

August 29, 2013 by

We recently had a Arkansas waterfowl hunting outfitter call us looking for a new website. He let us know that he had his website since 1996 and he had received a lot of business from his website - up until summer of 2012. After summer 2012, he said the calls just stopped coming in. Not only that, he was not even ranking in the first 500 SERP's in Google. Wow, not good; but not the first time we have seen this.

Copyright or Trademark your Logo

Copyright or Trademark your Logo

November 21, 2012 by

Copyrights and trademarks are used to protect your intellectual property against infringement. Copyrights protect works of authorship, such as written work, film, audio, digital files and logos. These usually apply to works you’ve created. Trademarks are used for words, phrases, and symbols that identify a company and distinguish it from others. Because our custom logos include original, and often times commissioned, artwork you may want both a copyright and trademark to protect your logo and your brand.

4 New Custom Hunting Logos

July 11, 2012 by

We've had a lot in the works in the way of custom logos here at 3plains for some time, so we thought it might be a good time to let you take a look at a few of them. We're still working through our current backlog of custom logo requests, but with taking the time to do each and every logo right, the work can often be slower than anticipated. It's really great to be able to share some of these finished designs with you. We can't wait to see them being put to use in the field.

Website Address on Vehicles

Website Address on Vehicles

October 15, 2009 by

Living in the Twin Cities involves driving a lot of driving with the poor transportation system. A person usually spends between an average of 20-50 minutes in their vehicle typically. Since I can get quite bored, obviously I end up looking at vehicle decals, advertisements or business signage on the roads. It never ceases to amaze me how many vehicles have logo'ed trucks, banners, stickers, and so forth with a phone number, but zero indication of a web address.
