I've been working with Eric from Peak to Peak Batiks to come up with a design for rukind. He does shirts for widespread, furthur,yonder mtn, leftover, etc. Anyhow, I got back the first idea, and was wondering what people thought? Any suggestions?

While I will get a few handmade shirts, I will working with a shop to make screen prints out of them too.

Looks nice. I'm wondering if there's any way to work some Dead logo art in there, or would that be a breach of copyright?

A quality shirt is worth every penny of the extra cost. I'm sure you guys have had shirts that gave up before you were ready to retire them. That's always a heart-breaker. Might be referring more to the actual garment rather than the process here, but its at least a little true for both.

I sort of prefer the classic RUK look:

Not sure how I befargled my post.

Batik...Good. Through many grand adventures becomes threads and seams and never leaves primarty t-shirt stack. :cool:

Screen Print = Heat reflective patch over my boogyin' attire...or a relegation to the back t-shirt stack...to eventually live in a box...cause I can't throw it away....to the attic of my barn...to a mouse nest. :cry:

Like design. Like suggestions of adding GD iconography or derivation thereof. Like original RUKIND logo.

You'll get my dough regardless.

Looks cool. Doesn't need the dead thing (IMHO). Let us know when we can buy one.

I love it, Batik preferable to screen.

Will it be available in Jerry size (3X....)?

Very nice

And here I was annoyed that my parents didn't grow me any bigger.

Hey, we average out to an L so that's got to count for something! :lol:
