Lafayette Logos

As I mentioned in my response to Bogie's comment about my avatar, I am a sucker for old school logos.  With that in mind, does anyone have pictures or links to any retro Lafayette logos that they can share?

I am always partial to the 80s-90s roaring Leopard head.  Looking back on it, it isn't the best drawn logo.   However, it still feels more "right" to me as a Lafayette logo than the current one.

I would purchase a shirt with your logo on it. Does that exist

I always liked that one as well.  Perhaps not as slick or professional as the current one, but it worked.  I loved old silver football helmets with the roaring leopard head.

No.  As I mentioned in the other thread, it was made by a gentlemen on another message board who scans and cleans up existing retro logos.  This is the original file.



He says he has no problem with any sharing of it, so you might be able to take/send the image to a t-shirt company to have one made.  Not-so-tech-savvy me is not sure how that works, but my understanding is that there are companies that will do that these days.

I hated the old silver helmets.  It was as if Russo was copying Lehigh.  That was way beyond unacceptable.

The logo would have to be digitized for an embroidery machine (this tells the machine where to put each thread/color)

My wife has a fancy embroidery machine,  I have asked her to find out what it would cost to digitize the logo so she could embroider it.

To me, the better version was the white helmet with the maroon and silver leopard.  The silver made it stand out more against the white background.

Can't the image also just be used to screen print a shirt?  That would seem simpler . . . just a better version of the cheap t-shirts you see with family pictures on them.

I am asking this because I don't know any better.  I just assume there is also a way to make a t-shirt that wouldn't involve embroidery.
