I'm sticking with my opinion that slogans are lame.

Please just let me have this:

It's simple, basic and awesome, just like textmate.

Slogans and shadows and stuff just feel very amateur.
Also, getting 3 colors to line up properly in a screenprint is  
difficult and expensive.
Sticking to 1 color will save you money. White ink on a dark shirt is  
also more expensive, but can look extremely good if done right. Always  
get samples first.
Avoid those iron-on digital print transfers and stuff like that. It  
never comes out good. It's very difficult to keep that sort of thing  
from looking extremely tacky. Screen printing is the way to go. Very  

I've done this sort of thing before. Talk to a professional shop that  
does this stuff before you make any concrete design decisions.
