For whatever it is worth... I like this version. Always more tweaks to do, though....

I don't like the long banner, however the others look good.

Not sure if this criticism is constructive or not, but, a couple of thoughts on the pizza icon part of the logo:

- The ones with one segment partially removed combined with the color of it, reminds me of PAC-MAN.
- It's also vaguely reminiscent of a slice of orange or lemon, again probably because of the segmentation and color.
- Is it pizza or the stone?  Both or neither?  The segments, especially with one removed suggest it's pizza but the color and the product name suggest it's a stone, except a stone shouldn't have a piece removed.  So I guess I'm kind of confused by it.

Just some thoughts, feel free to disregard!  I'm impressed by your product and efforts!

Carl, thank you for sharing your thoughts... I see your point, but, I have been working on this logo for a while, this is the best what I could come up with.

It's fascinating how different people can look at the same thing and see very different things. It's also interesting how you can look at the same thing many times and then, all of a sudden, realize it's something totally different than what you had previously thought. For example, I don't know how many times I've looked at your avatar, and I literally just now realized it's a dog in the picture and not a horse.

It's infinitely better than anything I could come up with, and it's actually pretty cool, just thought I would provide some feedback since you asked for it!  Logo design is deceivingly difficult in my opinion based on my previous, albeit limited, experience with it.

Ha, yes.  My avatar is an old album cover (The Church: Priest=Aura), not sure why I picked it as it has nothing whatsoever to do with pizza, but I needed something!

I am just making this up as I go,  yours and everyone feedback has been great to help me make up my mind on my designs.  To be conservative, for now, I am reverting back to just text for the logo on the packaging, and try to come up with better short description for the cover to highlight the benefits of MPS adjustable heat diffuser.

 I was hoping to raise more funds through kisctarter to support hiring professionals for all this work including my website and marketing materials.

I did minor change on the initial front cover. The orange color is an extract from the pepperoni pizza.

I made 10 pizzas for a pizza party at a relative house using MPS. It was a real enjoyable experience. Not sure of the BTU rating of his grill, bake time was 3.5 minutes average. I used the back burner on low. I managed to take picture of 3 pies only...

Thank you Pete and thank you everyone on PM. When I joined PM, I thought I knew everything about pizza making , quickly realized I know very little. I have learned whole lot on this site over the past few years, and still feel that I still have more to learn.

My plan is to get MPS to generate income before introducing new product or upgrading MPO. In addition to 14.25 Diam MPS stone, what do you think about producing a 18" and 10" version of MPS?

I could of baked 3 more pizzas easily. I felt one full load of charcoal is necessary to achieve high temperature  without messing with adding pieces of wood. Average bake time was about four minutes.

Pepperoni on my second pizza was Margherita Pepperoni Stick, 8 oz from Walmart for $3.2. It was better than what I was expecting.

Yesterday bake using lumps instead of briquettes. I prefer using briquettes, it provided higher and more consistent heat. I used one full load of Webber chimney in both bakes.

I made couple of pies last week when we had 36 F weather using the setup below. I used oak wood chunks to spike the temperature. The lid needed to be proped open at least 3" for the wood chunks to burn.  I am woking on a mod to feed the fire enough air to keep it lit while the lid is closed, I am planing to use battery operated fan with adjustable speed.
