Default BFH Garage project

I've been screwing around with this project off and on for a couple years now. This weekend I finally got off my *** and started messing with it again. After watching a buddy of mine reach for the Big F**kin' Hammer too many times while working on our cars, I thought it would be cool to make some BFH Garage t-shirts.

I came up with the logo a while ago and made a couple t-shirts but then lost interest. With my wife quitting her job and going back to school, I thought it was a good time to try to bring this to life and hopefully earn a little play money.

So, I've set up a store on cafepress.com... (link to store) they do all the printing, shipping, etc which makes life easy. Here are a couple shirt concepts I was playing around with:

Back:


Front:


OR



What do you guys think? You guys are members of my "target market" so let me hear your opinions! I have ideas for more shirts, these are just the beginning.

Thanks

white is for the pit crew

one thought.. what if you flip the hammer around the other way so the head is the second vertical on the H? dual purpose of acting as a whole segment AND slowing down the punchline. B.... F.... H--oh it's a hammer! instead of the other way around.

I like it... get some copyright on that STAT.

Unfortunately, they are only allowing me to put an image on the front of the black shirts, and the layout didn't look good on the front. I'm playing around with it to see if I can get it to look better on the front.

I hear ya on the white getting dirty quickly. The gray might hide it a little better.

so dope. I agree with the hammer head on the H though.

I like the black design best, too.

I like the black color best, but the grey is OK. I showed it to a couple guys, I'll be surprised if they don't all get one.
