Post up your designs. The club will pick one and get some shirts/hoodies/whatever printed.

You have a month. We'll vote at the next meeting.

#2: "Go All The Way."

Idea and writing by Gareth (sp?) at our meeting a couple of nights ago. :D

Here are some image resources so you can design your own shirts. If you want an EPS of the RS logo, let me know and I'll e-mail it to you.

FYI: we're a TLCA chapter in good standing, so it's completely legit to use the TLCA logo in your designs. You can get all these logos here (http://tlca.org/stuff/).

That's all I want.. That logo on the back full size and a small one on the front where a pocket would be.

I'm not good with the graphics, so how about some sayings with the RS Logo on the front. Words on the back

" Toyota Off-Road Vehicles - when you absolutely, positively don't want to break down and spend the night"

"Toyota 4WD owners do it in the rocks"

"Got Birfield?"

"Why do people climb Mountains? - Because their Toyota can!"

Anyone else have some?

I like the ideas that are not Land Cruiser-centric. Remember we are a diverse group! Acknowledge the organizational racism and work for social justice! Minitrucks unite! Enough with the Man having all the emblems.

I'd hate to have to send you to re-education class.

I like the Hummer one. :D Neil's pic, or something like it should probably be next year's CM badge picture. :thumb:

I agree with Wes. Big original logo on the back of a white (and/or other colored) t-shirt. Maybe a small something different on the front breast. Modernized logo? Either way. Something different that's big on the back with a small original (red) logo on the front breast would be cool, too.

I'd go with the RS logo.

I would want us to maintain our identity with the old logo. One of the compelling arguments that Matt has made is that something "new" will sell. Maybe the first one should be a classic original logo?


I meant to say before, I've always wanted a black Polo shirt with the RS logo embroidered on the left breast. I'd probably pay full price for one of those.

Whatever we do I'm sure we can sell a few at the rally and Cruise Moab, so make some extras. :grinpimp:

Hulk

Both of the designs above would have a small RS logo on the front left chest. The big designs would be on the back.

Shirt color can be selected after we choose a design. In fact, we'll probably be able to offer several shirt colors. So let's not focus on this now.

Chris, you can make this happen now. Get a quote from your vendor of choice and start taking orders. I can send them the official logo.

Okey dokey. You have it digitized?

No, we'll need to pay for that. What was the place that had the older CM logo digitized?

Digistitch. I could try and get a quote from them. They're known as being pricey. :D :eek:

I vote to not put a huge RS logo on the back. It will feel too stickey and stiff. I've got a homegrown shirt with a big logo on the back and it's too hot and sweaty.

single color is sweaty, most color ones will breath a little

I vote for classic styling of the rising sun logo but with a little flair! We need some spirit fingers!!!! :D

this was kinda quick and dirty to see if it is of any interest. I used different style ideas for the trucks ..not sure which I would use in a final version

I like Tch2fly's idea. Change the yellow text to another color and get a 100 in there and it gets my thumbs up.

I like the "no jeep" one, but as soon as I wear it I will pop a birfield and the only dude to come along the trail will be in a rock stock jeep 2wd and I will have to ask for a tug...

I like the black one Matt did.

^Classic. Except for the # of times you'll have to explain who the patron saint of wheelin is.....:D

I like the designs that focus on Toyota 4x4's (all models of course!), and the club and Colorado. Not so keen on mentioning Jeeps. Tch2fly's is pretty cool, with the RS logo on the front. My daughter would love the kitty one tho.

Just my newb opinion.

I don't think it would be any worse that a CM shirt. I think it's the way it's done vs the image size. I have a couple of logo shirts with large logos on the back and they are fine.

While tch2fly is nice that encompasses all makes I'm kind of tired of collages of real trucks. If they were cartooned a bit like a rainey kirk image then maybe otherwise it's played out IMHO, unless of course were including a 70 this go around. If so i'm in ;) :hill: :rolleyes: . I'm kinda partial to the st. fuaw.. Imagine that :eek: what about our logo on the chest corner, on the back the big logo and above the logo ST. FUAW and below it Rising Sun 4WD Club of Colorado. :birf: The Jeep references while amusing is just not something I'd wear.

Sorry, I only have paint at work and i'm not going there... :rant: :rolleyes:

that's my usual :twocents: :rolleyes:

Now there's something to think about. You mean Land Cruisers can't roll?
I just might have to reconsider my options...:cool:






Or put 80 axles on the Chili, eh?:thumb: :cool: :cool: :cool: In software it's called 'inheritance'.

That's more like it UB

I'm with Wes, I am collaged out. Lets go with simple, non offensive, and incorporate the classic Rising Sun logo.

At the risk of sounding like a sissy, i'd prefer a shirt that was non-bashing. I don't really like jeeps, but i also don't really have anything against them, and like drew said, a jeep would be the guy to come down the trail when i'm busted.

Shark Bait
06-12-2007, 01:52 PM
I tend to prefer not bashing as well. UB's shirt is OK. A little busy, maybe. Maybe cut down on all those logos. Which one is the CoA4WDCI logo? It could just say "Stay on the trail .... Wheel responsibly" , or something like that.

Lets see it fish boy! ;) CoA4WDCI is COHVCO.

I agree with being too busy! I like the logos a lot and I like the wording for the most part. What about if the logos were more of a water mark style? I don't have time right now to redo it but maybe later....
