By grooming habits I mean "mustache." Also, he didn't strike me as Latino.

>>although I like the current level of detail, I may simplify the serviceman graphic slightly more due to the shop owner's apprehension about its use in small-scale

Yes...I think that might be a good idea because with all the shadow, it might just sort of "blob out" when reduced in size but you could experiment a bit and see what happens--maybe try a grey rather than black in some areas?

I think the apostrophe on '92 needed to be rotated 180 degrees. That's what I did to it anyway. Must be the font mistake.

I'm a bit torn on the logo. I really want to incorporate the serviceman graphic, but I think the text alone does fit somewhat better on a shirt breast than text with the man, which is a bit wide and looks better centered on the chest. Then again their current logo is actually more wide/rectangular than mine; it's just that mine has more intricate text. Maybe the man should be be on the business card and advertising, but left off the shirt design?

I think that's a very reasonable approach--it's what my own mechanic shop does. The only way to really know if it would work as a shirt patch would be to create the patch logo at its actual size and then take the file to a local shop that could create the actual patch and ask their opinion on how it would look. If the cost weren't too high--say...less than $10 or so--for a single patch, have them make it, see what you think and take it to the shop owner. If nothing else, it would give you a souvenir of the job...'-}}
