Hey Jocks, how is your weekend going?

I’ve prepared some alternatives of our coming shirts and would like to ask you for your opinion. Here are 6 versions of the shirt front design with different text fonts:

Front alternatives:

And here is the back design based on Obi’s great idea:

I personally prefer #6.. which one is your choice?

Obi, the back is Times New Roman – to give it that “dictionary look”

I knew what the font was, I like the CAC Krazy Legs, because it looks like an 8 year old scrbblling. (Most carpenters scribble like 8 year olds)

But it’s an honor to have it on the shirt reguardless of the font

Will the design carry over to dark color shirts, are will the just be in white? I find my white shirts get very dirty very quickly in the shop…..

#1 or #6 I’d say… but I’d really be happy with any but #2 or #4.

The back looks great don’t change the typography it fit’s the dictionaryness of it perfectly. It could be my little laptop screen playing tricks with my eye… but i think the .com after the logo is a smidge to big. I think it only needs to be 60-80% of the logos font size.

I think the logo should be much larger on all of them.

I like the back with Obi’s idea. For the front, I would enjoy seeing the Logo Man larger. I made up a little picture below to show what I had in mind.
