i wonder if anyone can help me.
i have a friend who has asked me to design a logo for his company and ok ive done that and its currently being used just for the website he has.
thing is he may want the logo printed onto t-shirts for advertising purposes.
so does anyone know what i should do with regards to colour mode?
it would be disasterous if the colours went manky as soon as they output to cmyk.
anyone have any advice? what would you do?
i obviously need a very close colour match to the logo being used on his site. tricky as i dont have a monitor calibrator thing.
thanks for any help

That's probably your best bet. Then maybe have a very small run printed off to see how it looks.

I know what you mean. I do alot of this for my company. Simply though, most of these printing companies know how to convert the images to the color spaces they want and keep the image in tact. SO, if you do not feel comfortabel converting the colorspaces yourself or are worried it may not work you can ask the printer to do it and send you a sample to see if you like it.

I'd match the colours to a pantone. Rather that going from RGB to CMYK, a pantone match will ensure the colours appear as they should. This should also help considerably if you'll be printing onto shirts or anything like that. This is probably your best bet to make sure colours are consistent across web and a range of print media.
If you don't have a pantone swatch book, you might want to consider getting your hands on one.
