color contrast on 60pt logo letters

I've created a logo in Photoshop that uses 60pt bold block san-serif font that is orange on a white background. The color contrast checker at http://snook.ca/technical/colour_contrast/colour.html says that this fails but shows the failure for 18pt body copy. Does anyone know of a checker I might use that would take into account such large letters? The color is a gradient that runs from dark to light : efa544 to ffcd18.

Thank you for any advice.
