Well we are excited about the number of calls and emails about our legs.  We have decided to brand them and have a web page all their own.
Jeff is going to help me build a new website hopefully this week.  He has already made two logos for our new brand.

Check them out and let me know which you like better.  The size is no indication of which we like better more of a problem with me knowing how to use photoshop.

I like the first one (assuming your product is table legs ;))  Curious as to why you spell it that way.

Shouldn't they be called LegRites, not Rite Legs?

I like the top one.   Although the bottom is kind of funny, my first thought was "Topless Bar".    8)      I can't help it, it's the sailor instinct coming out.     ;D

The top because it shows your product.  You are marketing a topless product intended for the customer to top, but I do not see that it is or will be "always topless".

I agree with the sentiments already expressed: the upper one shows the lines of your product much better. The lower one does evoke more a topless bar.

The "Topless" bit is a clever tag line, but not something that needs to be in the logo. It might turn some people off, but the absence of it certainly would not offend anyone. Also, it's at least possible you'd sell some with tops at some point. I'd be inclined to drop the "Always Topless" from the logo, and perhaps substitute "A Logrite Company" or "A Division of LogRite", to capitalize on the name recognition and quality reputation you already have.

I wonder what it would look like if you substituted the "leg" in the second one for the horizontal brace in the first one?

I agree with John Mc. Go with your reputation you already have. LogRite equals quality, play that end of it up.

I think if you look closely, you will see that the picture of a Rite Leg actually represents a normal female human left leg.   Probably not a good idea to ask how I am familiar with the details  of right-left anatomy of female legs.

Thanks for the comments.

We thought the Right leg was clever as in correct or right side.  Then we chose to use Rite only as a connection to Logrite for the time that it would be connected to Logrite.  It took along time to come up with a name with leg in it that wouldn't bring you to a website you don't want customers to get to accidentally. ;)  We had played with just legs, bare legs etc.

As for logos I don't think they need to show what you do, for example Stihl, IBM, Xerox their name is their logo.  Then you have the Nike swish, or  all the logos for cars.  Most logos tell you nothing about what the company does.  And for a while now including a tag line into your logo is popular.  At least this is the info different marketing people have conveyed to us.  So we tried to come up with something that met those criteria.

I just know how we came up with the name.  Then we asked Jeff to come up with a logo.
I don't know what inspiration he had when he came up with it.
