    looks fine to me eddie… space is important sometimes..it helps promote the text!
    its hard to see this on a monitor because we are so close…

    the text you have used maybe wants to be closer to each other rather than the issue of the space around the edges…
    it would be possible to move the red text a little closer in the middle.. lower the top text slightly and replace the arrow with maybe a pointing hand….
    just a sugestion because the sign is very graphicy (no such word i know)
    but hey ive invented one! 😉

    you will find tons of arrows like this on the signlab fonts disk under clipart.
    i find myself using these arrows time and time again. 😀

    well there ‘aint an aweful lot wrong with that now I can tell ya’! 😉

    Sometimes something as simple and as sweet as this sign can make you stop, look and smile just as much as any fancy do-dah I can muster! 😆

    Nice one eddie – I really do think, as do many others, that you have an ‘eye’ for this type of thing and whilst everyone can learn such things – if you have them to start with it just makes the whole learning thing that much easier…

    more soon

    v.nice eddie, my only comment would be that the text all have shadows but the arrow doesn’t and i think it makes it look a little out of place.. maybe??

    Nice one Eddie, simple but effective, as Mike would say “does exactly what it says on the tin”.
