Local Real-Life Softball Designs

One of my buddies from work plays softball in a league on the Army installation where we work. The first design I did was for his team, the Army Materiel Command Starz.

Here he is in the shirt. Apparently the t-shirt printers don't understand the concept of spacing and size. Oh well.

One of the other teams in the league liked the design a lot and decided to hire me (with beer) to design theirs too.

This one is the Space and Missile Defense Command "Sons of Pitches"

As someone who works with screen printers a lot and even dabbles in the art myself, I can tell you that if they messed up the spacing and size of the print it's because your files were probably wrong.

That is unless you use a cheap/bad printer, which is just a horrible idea. When it comes to design work, never take the cheap way out.

You spelled materials wrong. Other than that, I like the concepts. Sons of Pitches is funny.

"Materiel" is the word for military supplies.

A shame the size on the actual shirt got messed up. I'm not a huge fan of that font, but it would've looked simple and well enough for a beer league softball team.

It would have to be off by a good bit though sizewise wouldn't it? Our team sent a design to Custom Ink for ours, but it was a pretty generic sidewinder logo. It turned out pretty decent. Not as good as the baseball jersey I had made though.

. I didn't actually handle the printing, I gave the basic design and graphic files to my friend who is on the team. I don't know who he used.
