Getting closer to finalizing this design. I re-illustrated the states to fit more in the style of the lettering. I am thinking of keeping it grey. People love grey shirts and I think they are hard working. Which speaks directly the Midwest. Attached is an alternate version with a slightly angled lettering. Would love to get some thoughts on which version people prefer.

liking it so far. I know what you're getting at with the transparent type but it just feels a little "wimpy" to coin a phrase. can't quite put my finger on a suggestion though.
@Erin Potter maybe a stroke? I love the shape, but I say skip the transparency.
just throwing out an idea...one thought, maybe "midwest" gets just a smidge larger?
@Erin Potter @David Grimes Thanks for the input, really appreciate it. I will most likely do away with the transparency. I think the only way to do that on a tee is to halftone it and I really don't want to do that anyway. I will look at enlarging the Midwest a bit. Curious if you guys like the flat version or the slightly angled version that is attached?
@Bob Ewing I like the tilt, but I might consider rotating the type to be less angled in relationship to the states. I think if the top of the underline was level, but the letters had a 5-10 degree forward slant, that would look really clean.
Bob I like the straight version myself. I'll have to get one of these since I'm originally from South Bend oooor a poster would be sweet as well.

So, I am pretty excited to announce that my Midwest tee went live on Cotton Bureau this morning. This is the first from my daily lettering project to make it out of the sketch book and become something real. Well, almost. I need your help.
