Super congrats on your shirts!! smile.gif Perhaps "available now" might be bit much? almost makes the person wearing it feel like an advert.

maybe take a look at other band shirts for ideas? Here is a MASTODON shirt. Says the band name, album name, and has graphics. You can put the web site on the back probably and be in better shape. The details (tour dates/times/release date/web site) are typically on the back of the shirt so the cool bits can be on the front smile.gif

I'd agree with Todd on the Available now and web address, also the very hard and straight border to the image doesn't lend it self to a T shirt design as much as the style of the Mastodon one IMO.

Congrats on your shirts!

Here comes my two cents from the industry:
The most important thing to think of when doing clothing design is "would I look good in this?" or "would people want to wear it?". More often than not, the album cover is not the way to go. A logo or a band symbol is easier to get a clean and good design around (also that would eliminate the border issue).
Merch is the way to fund tours so a good design i very important. My tip is to do a few designs with the band logo or the likes and use the ones with the EP-cover as free promo-t-shirts.

Ok thanks for the feedback guys. I can put up some more designs. This was just a quick one. Unfortunately, they don't let you print anything on the back. Only the front is an option.
