@ Jamie101 - cheers Jamie - see what you mean.
Maybe I can remove the gradient, change the font, reduce the stroke size, and play with other layer options.
@ Alien - thanks for the link - I'd forgotten I'd read that thread the other day. Johnny's portfolio is great ! Will consider him, as I'm no good with Illustrator, only Photoshop, and maybe a vector logo would be better for me.
@ Aegean - great suggestion thanks.
It's interesting - when I had the King Domains name idea, it was first thought of as a play on words regarding "Kingdom" - i.e. (kingdom)ains, hence the union jack.
However, the name King has since grown on me, so the crown might work better instead !
p.s. like the pic you posted - metallic style font, looks like good ol' Times New Roman !
