Actually the plan was to go with red, yellow, blue, black - there's
no reason not to do the separation using any primary colors you want
if you do the separation yourself. But you're right about spot colors.

Yes, if we made it more stylistic, with less 3-D effect and shadow,
it would be easier (and cheaper) to put onto the T-shirt. We could
do it with just 3 spot colors then: blue, yellow, and red.
Also, even if we do a vector logo for the T-shirt, eventually we'll
probably want a large bitmap logo for other uses. (This is of course
assuming that you can't get identical looking effects using
Illustrator. Feel free to prove me wrong.)

He said we could put the URL on the back virtually for free.
