Of T-shirts

I've been thinking for a couple of years that, if we're going to be more visible in the community, we need a t-shirt, or, at least, some kind of apparel. I go to a Unitarian Church, which is a fairly unique situation with regard to visibility. We also have a lot of members doing things, on social justice and charity work, among other things, and it would be helpful if people could signal affiliation.

Anyway, I've been thinking about how to make a t-shirt that doesn't suck (step 1: not white). Which, oddly, is what one of the resent episodes of Planet Money was about (if you're at all interested in real-world economics and you're not listening to Planet Money, you should try it out. They have a very approachable narrative style and tend to explain big concepts in understandable ways.). What their style guru told them was that women tend to like artistic, fitted shirts and men tend to like shirts that look like they swiped them from their cooler older cousin.

Ok, I think, it would be awesome if we could do a full-front-of-the-shirt watercolor-style version of the chalice mandala from our sanctuary:

However, I am smart enough to know that that is probably well outside our capabilities.

But what if we took that as something akin to a band logo, and went for a "Yeah, I saw these guys on tour 15 years ago" look with the shirt. That would be cool. But I don't know that there's anywhere that does that in smaller orders.

Anyway, these are the things that I've been kicking around. We also have access to the congregational logo, which is single-color. My original plan was to put that small on the front and the big colorful one on the back. But I need to spend some more quality time with photoshop to image-ize the big colorful one. And I think there's a better path.

Any ideas?
