Default Critique for Business Name

Hey TB!

I am launching my computer repair business in March, but have yet to decide on a name.

What do you guys think of Computing Mice?

Could use a cute little mouse for my logo/mascot :P I'll be based in the Newmarket Suffolk area in England.

Thanks!

the business name is good but your cards need a phone number on them .. not everyone will be able to contact you thru email especially if they are having computer problems..

The cards are plain IMO. I encourage you to consider using a brighter color scheme to make the cards stand out more. As madmark has already said, you need to add a phone number. The design for my cards was done my a professional. I recommend having someone who does this sort of thing for a living do your design. Vistaprint is another alternative.

I actually blocked out the number on it, its right under my name. Im using Vistaprint for them... I'll change the color scheme to something more catchy though, thanks for the input!

What do you guys think about the name?

Personally I don't like the name much, but I do like the business cards.

Don't hide your phone number, display it proudly for everyone to see

I see what you did there.

The name does seem a bit too cutsey for my tastes, but I don't think it's terrible. Maybe you're going for cute? If so, it doesn't really match with the more conservative look you have with your business cards.

Speaking of the card, I find your company name blends into the background. My eyes just kind of slide right over it without really registering. I don't have an eye for design, so I won't give concrete suggestions, but I think you should make it stand out a bit more.

I'm not really a big fan of the name. I think the cards look nice though. I'm guessing that bar under your name is where your phone number is?

I would be worried that people might get the name mixed up with http://www.micecomputing.co.uk/
