Art for Shirts is Not Art for Everything

All too often a customer insists that their image on their shirts should match their billboards, signs, posters, table tents, magazine adverts, etc. Farm Aid and the artist for their logo Kathy Keller did a great job of creating a logo, but having variations for web, poster, tickets, and importantly for us shirts.

Putting a big rectangle print on a shirt is too damn inky, and Ms. Keller did a nice job of excerpting the logo pieces for the front and back of the shirt. The shirts sold like hotcakes, all of them were gone before it even got dark.
