    Thank you for your answer PrintDriver. Seems like I was misinformed. I'll probably have to buy another printer that can print on thicker card stock then. Do you have any suggestions as to what printer...

    Thanks.

    I was testing the Font Suitcase and seems to be screwing with my Chrome bowsers...after some googling--looks like its a known issue. FEX it is then.

    Thanks Garricks....

    I like the simplicity of them, but they will be hard to critique without knowing some background information on them.

    Two things I did notice right off is the Harros logo looks like a rip off of the Ferrari logo and the Harris logo looks like a rip off of the Star Wars logo. Looks like you used fonts that were created to imitate those logos. Generally, those types of fonts aren't allowed to be used in commercial work.

      I'm assuming these are all just practice logos.

      One thing that you really need to work on is the spacing between the letters (kerning). For example, the kerning in the Krasnodar, Kartason's and Taylor type is wildly inconsistent. The objective should be to achieve a visually consistent amount of spacing between each of the characters.

        not commercial use at all...

          These are difficult to critique because we have no information on any of them. What are they logos for? What kind of companies, products? What message are you trying to communicate?

          As <b> said, kerning needs work.

            - Time for an addition to the Logo Design Basics sticky: Don't use Star Wars font.

            - Why does the Brand New TV logo have an antler growing out of it?

            - Instead of coming up with names and logos at random, make a brief with a design problem to solve, and use that for practice.

              Well don't be down on yourself you are trying to learn.

              Just picking out a few things

              1) Having all the letters touching is awkward and even if you wanted this affect they're not spaced evenly. Work on your kerning

              2) I wouldn't used typefaces created to mimic existing identities even for practice... I just wouldn't bother having them on my computer. I don't really feel like these typefaces compliment each other much and "eating out" isn't very legible. Also You're using 3 typefaces here, most often it should be one, maybe 2 with a tagline if its necessary.

              3) Not much to crit honestly. Again I'd stay away from those... playing around is a good time to get acquainted with commercial typefaces you'll be able to use in the future.

              4) The kerning is really, really uneven and no reason for the sudden break in the swoosh.

              and for the rest, watch your kerning, number of typefaces... I'd get acquainted with the logo design sticky. Kudos for going one color and staying away from raster effects.

                  I agree, the simplicity is good. however I do see a few flaws.

                  the second, third, and last ones stood out to me the most.

                  as most have said kerning, and fonts need work. also it is hard to crit without background info, but ill go from visual perspective.

                  the second one along with looking like a rip from the ferrari logo, you have three different fonts. your top font, is going to give you all kinds of crap trying to print that out, and most likely at smaller sizes.

                  number three, again the font from star wars, no no, lucas would sue you a new one. the little dingbats on the sides of "web designer" kind of bother me too, they kind of draw attention to themselves. they dont really add anything to the layout. not to mention they are uneven.

                  the last one, again too many typefaces. and its starting to look realy busy. kind of reminds me of an ad from back in the letterpress days, rather than a logo.

                  again though, simplicity is good, and I must say if your just starting out with design, they look good for a beginner, just some common mistakes.

                    I'm interested to know how many of these started out in pencil and paper and how many of these were "designed" completely on the computer.

                    I think I know...
