So, we've got a few proposed designs for wrapping our ice cream trailer. I'd love some input on what y'all think we should go with.

The first one is the best one, according to my 60-year-old tastes.

I like the 2 Dips central logo part, with the cone as the I -- works great.

I have mixed feelings about the backgrounds. I like the old-fashioned arcade look of the stripes but it's also lacking something. Maybe try the "clutter of frozen stuff" from the top models, with the stripes from the bottom model? (the very bottom one has a more attractive border)

Also I'd try to avoid having a window under the rocket-icecream thingee (I guess that's a window??) -- move either the thingee or the window

From a marketing standpoint, the top one is probably the most visible and obvious to the customer. On further review, I think that one is going to get you more business than the others.

Also I'd list "ice cream cones, popsicles" first in the text. Those will likely be your biggest sellers to average folks, and most people stop reading about halfway through any headline or label. You don't want them thinking you're only a smoothie-and-yoghurt vendor, which is probably a smaller market.

Yeah, we're adjusting the text as we're not selling yogurt or some of the other items. We are also looking at using fractal art as the background (do a google search, it's great stuff) or lightening art. The stripes were a bit too "carney" for us but that's just us. We're adding a scoop to the "I" since it is after all two dips.
Can't move the window since it's already there. The pic's are our actual trailer with the art photo shopped on.

I think the 'brightest' one, (the one that will catch the eye the most), is #3.

That is TERRIBLE about his new car! Poor kid! All the stress of school and now his car!

It seems that they are everywhere until a few days before hunting season begins they seem to sense it and go into hiding.
That's exactly right. My sister has a lot of deer on her property and they suddenly disappear.....they KNOW!

Their disappearance around here nearly always follows on the heels of a loud bang. I thought that was the cause, but what do I know about such things?

There were a lot of my neighbors "adjusting their sights" in their backyards lately !
We have a major deer highway behind or place and we are still seeing them but they are skimming the edges of the open areas staying just inside the forest edge. There isn't much space between the river and the mountains that go straight up except the highway and a strip of woods with houses scattered about.

LOL My sister lives in northern California....a mountainous area. She's had her house for about 15 or more years..... She has a huge galvanized tub that she fills with water for them and sometimes she gives them table scraps or buys alphalfa.....they love melon rinds.. She's got her favorites and names them...(and no, none of them is named Bambi)....they come back year after year.....she watches them change over time.....one older one had a club foot but he finally disappeared.... (could be that a cougar got him, I dunno)..

For some reason, they KNOW......they disappear for a few months and KNOW when to return.... She won a lot of photography awards in her younger years, (i.e., when she was single, no children, and had time to do something for herself), and is like Rickers.....she has an eye for capturing the moment... She has taken pics of a lot of the deer.....

Her husband hunts, but he does not hunt her 'pets'.....he goes out of state.....
