Just use some of the mexican food money and pay a designer, then raise the cost of the shirts by like a dollar to cover it. No one's going to want to wear a crappy looking shirt.

The whole idea was to let the members design the shirt. The printer can do one for free, but that would defeat the whole purpose.

What color is the shirt going to be? Or will the design/logo have to look good on several colors?

I could probably come up with something if I tried. I don't really have a whole lot of time to work on anything though. Part of the work I do at the office is graphic design & logo work so I have some experience in that type of thing.

I'm thinking we just make a shirt with crutches in an X, and on the back we write, GUNZ SUCKS.

Someone draw that up, i'm lazy.

Dude, that gave me an idea. What about the skull and crossbones thing, but the skull is a super bent frame, and the crossbones are crutches? And it says 'bikeforums' in a script at the bottom. That could be pretty awesome... time to bust out that vector illustrating program.

I thought you loved me.

Also, not many people in the world know who "Gunz" is, and they may just think that the publisher was too stupid to spell "guns" right. I don't think you want to be caught wearing a shirt in which everyone in the world asks about. It's a bit like wearing my Sunday! shirt...

Everyone in the world includes hot girls too. And if they dig, you can talk about how kickass of a bike rider you are after you explain about the shirt.

Although in the case of that shirt, I can't imagine it going too well.

her: "What's with the shirt?"
you: "Oh.. gunz is this guy on an internet site, and the shirt's saying how he sucks"
her: "Ok, bye"

If it's a bike company shirt:
her: "What's with the shirt?"
you: "It's the name of a bike company, I'm sponsored by them and I just won 5 grand in a contest yesterday, want to go get a motel room?"
her: "Ooooh, yeah, I love pro BMX riders"

That bent frame doesn't look much like a skull. And those crutches look kinda like oars for a boat.

I'm too lazy.. I used a program called Inkscape, which is free and great for that sort of thing. Download it and have at it.

Oh, and I also used photoshop to put the drawings together, but you could probably do it all in inkscape.

I already put it on that topic, it's kind of rough and I would have added more bikes if I wasn't lazy.

How about the shirt says "Save a car, ride a bike" with a bike below it.
