Puul Labeling Direct (pronounced "pool") is a brand new start-up with the backing of a few angel investors. Puul Labeling is a private-held, family-owned company with the company slogan "A Shine Above The Rest." We are a private labeling company involved in helping sellers provide retail goods from brand name companies without their customers knowing who it comes from. We have no web presence (to start) and will be relying on direct-mail marketing to get started.
Our target audience are those looking for a respected and service-oriented company with whom to work with. We provide the best value to our customers. Our customers are mostly male and generally your basic guy's guy. They're entrepreneurial businessmen (but not the suit & tie type) with not a lot of time to dilly-dally. They're looking for the best deals and the best price with great service.
We need a logo that portrays the service and value a customer will receive with us. The logo can be something as simple as a word mark (if it works), but we are looking for a creative logo mark as well. We need something creative and is not a re-hash or unoriginal piece of work as seen on 1.000 other stock logo sites.
