A Purple shirt with a gear and pen would look quite nice.

The icon is purple with a white gear and black or white text  
(depending on the background).
	The pen is black and white

The icon could be converted to a 2 color vector object and have the  
third color come from the color of the shirt.
	It's more expensive to print on black shirts.
	It'd be possible to keep some gradation in the vector object with a  
halftone pattern.
	It might look better to do a flat sharp object instead of gradating it.

Does anyone have a vector version of the icon? Maybe the original  
photoshop file or anything?
	That'd make the conversion to a vector object a lot easier.

So we can do either:
	•	Black shirt with purple and white
	•	Purple shirt with white and black

So print in 1 color you'd have to do a purple shirt with white gear,  
pen & text.
	That could look really nice if the purple is dark enough.

Personally, I'd like both the black and purple shirts. But if I had  
to choose only one, I'd probly have to choose the purple one.
