OT: Need a jersey design

I'd like to see a jersey design for the Neils on Wheels Bike Touring Team. Does anyone have any experience designing such a thing? Anyone care to post a design?

The team color is yellow. Neil Fein has come up with the official logo:

Also, are their any other colors you want worked in? Swatches of colors you like would be very helpful.

Arrrghh... please, no. If it's a seventeen-colored thing I won't buy one myself. Simple, simple.

That said, if we can print the logo in something other than black, it would be cool. (Dark green or blue, maybe.) Depends on $$$, of course.

Do you like either of these logos?



Personally I think the royal blue really pops against the yellow.

I like the blue.

Just got my computer back (I'm typing this in the Apple store, actually) and I should be able to finish the graphic this week.

Damn I almost wish my name was Neal, Neil or Neel.
I know a Neel that is why I threw that one in.

Here you go:



I'd buy one too but I still have to do something extraordinary to be an honorary Neil.

(Note: imageshack.us was not cooperating with me this morning so I had to use imageigloo.com. The igloo has a habit of conking out when linked to. If this happens and there is interest I will repost.)

I like this jersey design! Just my comment! You guys need to post pics when you get them. I'll also do a blog feature and link to your Neils on Wheels blog when you get them.

Something cool you could do on the back is a list of events you've participated in, like a concert t-shirt w/ all the tour dates listed:



Are there any other images you'd like included, or a slogan or something?

I don't know if Fatty's Clyde emblem is (C) or not, but I like it, so I borrowed it for this next one. Please don't sue me.

If it was me, I woul remove the ones on the sleeves and put something else there, or leave them off entirely.

I like the blue and yellow on the sides also.
