Help! Need Advice Quick!

I can't believe I didn't think of asking you all earlier, but here's the set up anyway.

I have a bunch of new jackets for the Ski School at my area, and I have to get our logo embroidered on them tomorrow. Today is Thursday, Sept. 21. So if you are reading this after Friday, thanks, but too late. Here's what I need.

Logo is on the front, and I haven't been able to think of anything to put on the back of it, other than "INSTRUCTOR", which is sooooo plain. have any of you seen anything innovative or have any ideas for the back of our ski and snowboard school uniforms?

Feel free to make jokes, I'll only use the serious ones though! I was thinking "Ask me why I'm cool", but I don't think the boss would go for it!

Cheers,
Spag

Is the ski school logo similar to the resort logo ? If not the same put the resort logo on the back .
How about the name of the instructor on the back like an athletic jersey?

Sorry Garry. Resort Logo is on the front, the Ski School logo is far too intricate, and therefore EXPENSIVE. I see where you were going though.

I used to repair golf carts, sprinkler heads, and lawn mowers... (worked at a golf course as a teen) I would think that golf, being as infuriating as it is, would inspire more people to ski. Not the other way around. (wink)

Oh. And the jackets are only issued, not given. So the name on the back wouldn't work either. (Picky, aren't I?)

Snow crystals on the back.

If you don't mind a variation, how about "follow me if you don't want to suck"

"Snow Sports School"
...is at once comprehensive and and ubiquitous for most

resort needs in the 21st century.

It is fast becoming the industry norm.

The simple Epicski-popular "Pro" could be a nice touch in

it's longwinded stead.

The avoidance of logos keeps graphic costs minimal and

turnaround periods brief.

I like "Snow Pro" as a variation on our Area Logo. Could work. I'm still on the lookout for a couple more hours, so keep 'em coming.

How about "Will Work For Food"?

(Hem, We're known as the "Ski and Ride Center". Good idea. Thanks.)

Ski / ride better - Ask me how

Caution! Ski God on Board!

How about big PSIA/AASI logos

Ask me how to make my eyes stop bleeding

You call that skiing? THIS is skiing!

If you can read this, you're way too close

We all need (industry-wide) to think about our titles

from the customers' collective point of view.

"Ski and Ride Center" does not signify the school,

uniquely.

The Rental center could be called the "Ski and Ride

Center", as might the hardgoods retail center.

"School" or "Pro" (Hem has rethought more "pro"

and deferred to the sensibilities of epciski's fine staff

and membership)

would both be more uniquely descriptive of your

educational staff.

"Snowpro" certainly connotes more fun.


Thank You

Yeah, I ended up going with "Snow Pro". It just seemed less sterile than the other stuff. I tore apart the ski area logo, and used a part of it over the top of Snow Pro and called it good. It should look pretty sharp. Thanks all of you!

Patent that, quickly.

Could become an industry-norm.

Yeah, photos would be good.

My favourite t-shirt is the one I got at Snowbasin in the 90s, and it says:

Will Ski 4 Food

which is pretty much what I do nowadays, come to think of it.

What you could have put on the back was something like:

Ski Lessons: $50
and a mobile phone number! (which, IMO, would work a treat).

I won't have a sample jacket done until Thursday, and I'll decide if it needs changes then. I'll snap a photo or two.
