  • a name for my company?

    I was wondering if any of you guys could help me come up with a good name to call myself, i have just made the step and become self employed working as a painter and decorator!

    problem is im struggling on a name? there is the obvious using my name or my initials (MJS). but i dont really want to go that way, i was looking for a single word or a couple of words that are nice and catchy and will be easy to remember and use when answering the phone?

    any ideas?


    best i have come up with is 'Matt Finish' or Finishes

            Matt, MJS has already been done , good luck with the business.

            How about Matador? (Matt a door)

            I think once you get established the name won't matter so much, you will work a lot on reccomendation so Matt Smith Decorating would be fine

                      using your own name keeps things personal if you are on your own and not a big company. my brother just called his' sean evans interiors' and was very succesful in london. people will call you on reputation rather than a quirky name so go with the personal touch and use your name. good luck with the business.

                        I agree about using your name. I work for a housebuilder in the North West and get involved with a lot of the sub-contract buying. Its just natural that you refer to tradesmen by name rather than company names. Flick through your local yellow pages, notice how many painters who try to use something clever and catchy. Its not worth the effort in my opinion. Use your name, give it that personal touch,
