"Offensive" T-Shirt

Yes, close your eyes as some out there may be offended by my new t-shirt design. I am doing a run of these shirts at $12 a piece shipped ideally. Probably not more than 30 shirts, or until I get shutdown by LR. It's not a finished design, but it's pretty close.

I like the idea!! Maybe a different font for the text above and below the oval.

Many people here may remember Steve Andrews, who did this bumper sticker slogan and sold them back at MAR '03.
Timeless offensiveness.

Yeah the font hasn't been decided, I'm thinking Gil Sans but haven't decided.

That's probably where I got it, I saw it on the back of a Rover online somewhere.

Trust me... I know, why do you think it took me so long to get this to market?

Maybe see how it looks with the text wrapped to match the oval too? Just an idea, I definitely think a different text, but that has been discussed above. I'm in, can we do them on a lighter weight shirt? The Passport ones I have are really heavy, and combined with the amount of ink, they really don't breathe much at all.

Yes, unfortunately when I did the path around the oval, the oval was much larger in Illustrator so the arch was incorrect. That will all change when I find a new font and do the actual design.

Great initiative and a true service to the community, but I hate acknowledging the competition on anything I own or drive. When I was into the Cummins thing, seems like every modded truck had a Calvin sticker. Any other designs?

I do have this design, though it is a bit more "goofy". I am also happy to try other designs, I found a good shirt guy and want to produce some quantity.

Someone got me a similar looking shirt for Christmas last year:

There was a Land Rover vendor many years ago that had shirts made up with a picture of a Series Rover and something like the following below the picture:

"The Italians see the automobile as the purest embodiement of the feminine form. So do the British."

He sold them at the National Rally and there was a British woman there that threw a complete fit.

Coke might lay claim to the "real thing" logo.

Zack I'm all about a couple of those on a beige or gray/blue colored shirt. In my new svelte xl size.
