Frosty, don't limit yourself to a white design just because of the printing location selected.  We are determined to find a better one (that does black prints) so it shouldn't be an issue.  
Btw really really like the design but is there anyway you could try to "render" it a bit more? I think more colors would be nice.  You know, a more 3d look.

Here's an adequate effort at a 3D version of Frostillicus's design.  But I like the other logos I've seen here (including Frosty's original) better.  I just wanted to see what I could do with MS Photodraw's tools.

Nice designs guys, but don't forget that these images are going to probably be silkscreened onto the t-shirts....so don't expect a cool looking 24-bit image to look good when it's knocked down in color depth...gotta remember stuff like that for this sorta thing...

Yeah, something like the one I posted above would look good on a shirt from cafepress.com, but only until you washed it the first time.  :P

You would be amazed what dithering can do.  The design I posted only has 4 true colors, for example.

I tweaked it slightly to look more 3d using gradients, looks pretty decent.
Anyways, there's one for a white shirt and one for a black- I'm gettin into this design.
here are links - the pics are getting a little large for sticking on the board here...

Frost, you rock! Getting better! Keep tweaking that baby!

Black does look nice. I am going to talk to my buddy and see what the cost would be for some shirts...in black. try to stick to 4 colors if possible.

I'm kinda torn between the new "3d" style..almost too much gradients there. Especially for a basic t-shirt. I think keep it simple as possible...

 ;)

That looks great!  I prefer the black tee shirt.  I also still really like the oranges and schematic look of Howard's design.

I was just reading the messageboard at mame.net and happened across this post

http://www.mame.net/cgi-bin/wwwthreads/showpost.pl?Board=mamegeneral&Number=117133&page=0&view=expanded&mode=flat&sb=7#Post117133

It seems like the perfect slogan.

I'm all about the playing with joystick one.  That's classy!  If I were to buy one of these shirts, it'd have to be humorous for me to justify it to myself ;)  Like someone else mentioned though, drop the 300 members.

FRONT:
The "BYOAC" logo at the left breast pocket.

BACK:

(Excuse the crappy execution, but hopefully it gets the idea across.)

Still one of my favorites... I'd buy :)

I am sorry to say that there has been no good idea yet! One thing to consider is, if you are wearing this t-shirt in public, and want someone who KNOWS NOTHING about BYOAC to "get it" you seriously need something simple and curious. Things like "Howard Aprroved" or "arcadecontrols.com: all you need." don't say anything to the unknowing public. No on will get it but you. What's the point?

Blah blah blah..  :o

We need an advertising geek in here.  :-\

I had to vote for the first one, the rest seemed to be begging for me to wear a one of those old hats with the fake crap on the bill and a "honk if you're horny" bumper sticker.  I'd like to be able to wear my shirt in public and not have people think I'm a complete idiot.......  IF that's possible   ;)  er, wait, probably not

Same.. feels more i dunno, "decent" for what its for..
