Thanks for taking the bull by the horns. We could use a motto.

Thank you Sage, we thought the owl best represented wise land use practices. The graphics designer was a young man from Canada. All of the graphics designers were incredibly talented. We had difficulty choosing which artist to work with and even more difficulty choosing from the many styles he presented.

I'm sure everyone agrees the logo is perfect! Is there any issue if it is slanted on a tee shirt? And I'd like to see Wildlife Gardeners dot com in the products too.
So, a non-binding motto contest maybe? For one week?
"Be a Wildlife Gardener!"

Thanks Lorax, that logo is great. If I could get a good digital copy of it I can get to work on printing it up for various projects.

Sage, my feelings exactly, a motto contest is a great idea. I have no clue how to do it, WG Admin? "Be a Wildlife Gardener" is a good start!

I'm enthusiastic about the prospects and ideas, keep 'em coming!

I think a motto or catchy phrase is great for a T-shirt. Something like "got wildlife?" (which is over done)...I guess I'm just thinking that a phrase or picture can be the main focus, with the logo and website smaller below it (or on the back of the shirt). I guess it depends on the design...I'm just saying the logo alone on the shirt is one way to go, but not the only way.

So many ways! Often I see a small printed area of the upper right or left, with the larger name emblazoned on the back, but the options are wide open.

For a tote, should it be the same on both sides?

Baseball caps? I wear them a lot for photo shoots. . And the wildlife Gardeners colors are perfect for tees, caps and totes!

Perhaps start a thread to collect ideas, then maybe a poll...

I think the logo, as is, is great for a baseball cap! For some reason I imagine something different for a shirt...but nothing s really coming to mind.

I just tried to create a Tee shirt on Zazzle but the logo of course was too pixelated when enlarged for a tee. So first order of business is, do we have a large version of the logo for use on products?
