Hello everyone!! Hope your all enjoying this wonderful Christmas season!! Also hope you getting some time in the shop . This post probably could have went in a few better areas but I thought the coffee lounge would work too. Wondering if ya’ll have any ideas for a small bussiness name. I have been making small scrollsawn and hand made wood gifts for years and recently finally getting some sales through facebook and word of mouth and I am needing to change the name to something catchy yet simple and that will last as times change. I make custom names alot, also other word art, ornaments, small games, wall crosses and others. Most everything is Christ centered. Also do animals, profession names, school names and teams, small toys. Nothing big but willing to also take special orders for other stuff. I live in Minnesota and its just me in my little shop, no employees. In the past it was Sonshine Woodworking, Lien Woodworks, Martys Wood Carvings, Martys Scrollsawn Wood Gifts, etc. Thinking a one word name would maybe be good? Example; Woodworks? Or maybe two words with a tag line under? Wanted to have my first or last name in it but maybe not. Looking for tips, suggestions etc. Thanks!!

You should always tell them what you do in your name.
