    Its going to be tough to stick a shirt in a laser printer.

    I like the back. Maybe arch the "Landscapes Unlimited" a little more. The front should be alot smaller thou and only your logo.

    Just my .02

    N&C, Good starting point but, personally I'd loose your State & zip code and just leave the name. On another note move your name on the front down a little and make everything one font size bigger. I used custom ink as a starting point but then went to a local printer and basically said do whatever you need to do.

    Like I said not a bad starting point and I really like the yellowish gold with the dark green nice contrast.

    The fact that you have shirts at all impresses me in comparison, but the layout is all wrong.

    1. The cleff (chest) area shouldn't bear an address. Too much text. This is a good area for a brand awareness pic or just the company name.

    2. The graphic on the back kinda reminds me of Gold's Gym. I didn't like theirs either. Big mascot cartoons, ect look cheesey to me.

    Again, you have screen printing, which is a step up from 60% of your competitors. Don't worry about them. Graphics design is tricky because it ALWAYS looks good at first...them you see what's wrong once it's too late. Room for improvement is what inspires us to strive!

    Customink's database is simple and not a real good tool (except for promo items). Use Photoshop for your graphics design work. PS is the ONLY way to go. Second choice would be PanitShop Pro by Corel.
