I forgot to mention this in my above post...
The nice thing, (I think), or rather my criteria for this was to create something that could lend itself to a variety of imprinting methods...had to be simple but more than just text. This can be embossed or debossed, embroidered, screened, pad printed, etc., and also easily converted to color where none of the colors touched, so that eliminated conflict in some printing methods and a certain cost factor.
It is also easily inverted (reversed) out if need be. The negative/positive space aspect lent itself well considering our preferred method of addiction here...
It was a struggle, and Sean's input (rejection of several other concepts ) and APUG'r Geary Lyons and Alan (Menacing Tourist) also gave me some input/kudos on final version. I'm happy with it.
I doubt if the tshirts are going to be available that soon (17th) but hopefully soon once the modus operandi is figured out. Thanks.
