It is a good logo, the problem is, something like that will be almost impossible to embroider. We could perhaps silk screen it though.

For embroidering, we would need a logo with no real fades/shades/diffuse shadows, but instead very solid lines and solid fills.

that's a 4-5 layer silk screen, not the best thing to do when you DIY, if we gotta have that many layers I suggest iron on.

silk screen is 1 color per screen, so the more detail the more screen you'll need

But we should really do embroidered, which can be multi-color. But it has to be solids.

For embroidered, drop the shadows, outline the pins. Remove the highlights from the ball and just make the finger holes white circles. Probably also need to tweak the font for 1Addicts and just steal the forum logo. In fact, maybe should remove it from the pin entirely and put in underneath the whole logo.

Also, don't bowling pins have stripes around the neck? Maybe instead of 2 stripes that are equal, they can look more like racing stripes - one wide, one skinny. And I'd make them in Roundel Blue.

I might be able to find some time to mock it up later.

I like it, but the gradients will have to go for embroidery.

These are all a little too complex for embroidery. Think 16 colors.

I think standard 1 Addicts logo, with the word "Bowling" under it. Simple, effective, and people can read it. The logos we have been making only make sense to us, no one can even read them unless they are like right up behind Ming or something :-p.

How about Crayons? Did you use any of those? You only get bonus points for using Caryons.

I did use crayons, but the new ones that don't need sharpening.
