lose the entire thing IMO. that might be a good idea to work from with a company design, but for a team design you really need something that will look good in print. Even if it is just some well designed text.

I second that.


Think outside of paintball related stuff in the logo and you will be much happier in the long run.

Also if your going to use the logo on anything such as jerseys etc. you will need it in vector format, non of us knew how to do it but we found a guy pbn to vector everything for almost nothing.

Here is a example of a logo me and my cousin thought up and I made in photoshop, this one is formatted for a sticker for my truck so its plain white letters and might be hard to see but you can easily see the logo:

It fits are team name and thats what matters IMO. Once you think past trying to incorporate paintball in the design you will have alot more options.

Another thing too, is with having the Ion and Shocker in the background, it might turn off potential gun sponsors other than Smart Parts.

Totally agree. We found this skeleton fish and adapted it for our team logo. (Picasso Trigger is actually a fish, and a bad movie, haha!) We have a couple different versions of it, and it's always changing - eventually it'll be what we want.

As it is, we can easily incorporate the image into stickers, decals, screen printing, etc. People don't easily recognize it as paintball, but they find it interesting and are always asking me about it...

WTF... why didn't you post that first, that's way better.

I'd take the reaper/ghoul and put the Text over him in Big Bold white with black background. Then I'd lose the slogan "Never give up"

OK, so now that my cs3 trial is up, I can't find any of the fonts since there's no preview font area in ps7. Anyone want to recommend a font before I go through this list of 500 fonts? Also I can't begin to tell you how annoying it is to work around a locked image, it's still in draft, so when saving... if it gives you an option, leave it unlocked, It's not like locking an image will stop people from stealing it anyway.

I say make the "Lost Cause" much larger, transparent and put the Grim Reaper over the letters themselves (not below or above, but on top of...if you can picture what I mean...)

yeaaa. our team name isnt original, but who cares :) we can be play boy lovers, or peanut butter lovers ;D

well, there is another currency in poland, but it was about 32 USD

Thats sick dude! where did you get it to (looking for a place )
you mean logo or jerseys? logo was made by sonic, our captain :)
jerseys to tell the truth arent typical for paintball. they are just footballs goalkeeper jerseys. anyway i like them. as you can see, we have a lot of free space for some inscriptions (come on sponsors ; D )

See if you can put the text over the logo without reducing it's visibility. Give the text a black border with at least a 5 pixel distance.
