    Til then.. a few of our distributors have some stuff on their websites like here http://barspin-imports.com.au/page14...y=2&postPage=3

    They can post... but barspin makes them in house in Australia. We don't yet make official banshee T's, just let our distributors do it. We hope to find the time to do something proper this year.

    I realize this may require more effort than most are willing to exert, but upload a logo, etc...to Cafepress.com and have your own gear printed. Just had them print up a t-shirt with my own design and it cost $35 with shipping. Received it in 7 business days.

    I also had a bunch of old WWII AirForce B-17 bomber squadron logos and bomber nose/tail section art from the two planes my grandfather flew printed onto sticker stock. $5 per sticker in full color and the quality is spot on. They're going on the Spitfire once I receive the frame.

    Copied The Alamo into Photoshop and placed it on a neutral white background and was able to fit two onto a standard bumper sticker size sheet. They're about the right size to fit on the tubing of a mountainbike frame. Pretty certain copying a Banshee logo off of something would be an easier process.

    Good call, go for it guys! We are not money grabbing lawyer types who will go after people who use our logo for their own personal clothing. Infact post up any designs you have made here for us all to see!

    I love the idea of custom colored links

    That's great Keith!

    So the question is, would you be willing to provide us high quality images to work with if we want to have our own merch printed? Adobe Illustrator or .eps format logos for Banshee, the "B" logo, and the logo's for bike models, like the Rune, Spitfire, etc.

    It would make getting stuff printed so much easier than trying to work with small, low quality jpg files off the internet. Plus, if you can provide your original, high quality artwork, there will be consistancy in the branding and displaying of your business trademark, which I assume you take much pride in.

    I used the Banshee sticker that came with the bike and made a copy, then colored in the reverse side and printed that out on iron-on transfer paper. I tried to make the Rune emblem (the vegvisir) on the sleeves, but that didn't come out right. So instead of an all around town shirt, it's just a go riding shirt.

    I'll have to try again on some others.

    What about this? A simple raglan cut, preferably in a dri-fit material.

    Does anyone have a large image of the old Banshee headtube graphic? I have only managed to find very small ones.

    A very good point. So far I have only been able to come up with the actual logo with the B in high enough quality to create vector files from, not the actual word Banshee - I know it should just be a plain old font, but don't know where/what family to look at. If Keith is OK with it I have the B as I said which I can post up in PDF vector.

    If I knew how to post the banshee logo and name up I would, but not sure how to.

    So someone please e-mail me and I'll reply with the files I have. Jay has them all somewhere, so if you need more then ask him.

    I really your design juanbeegas, I had something pretty similar in mind for a design.

    All right, Keith sent me the artwork and I guess gave us the go ahead here, so I'm posting a big JPEG and a PDF vector file.

    Hah, thanks. I'd gladly churn out more, if you want, but it'll have to be after next week. The computer at home died and I've not had time to send it in for servicing.

    New Jerseys are now available online, as Coach said
    http://barspin-imports.com.au/page14...=53&category=7
    Just ordered a red one. They will ship internationally.

    No affiliation with Barspin. Just another Aussie with a half built Spity.
