Motiv's Apparel.
« on: March 07, 2018, 11:13:37 AM »
Although us Motiv bowlers can look at the Motiv "M" logo and know what it means, the vast majority of bowlers and non-bowlers do not. I don't understand the reasoning of no longer putting the word 'Motiv" under the "M" logo on its latest apparel. Is it to save a few cents in embroidery costs per item?

They had and have some nice polo shirts and other apparel, but without 'Motiv" under the "M" logo, I'm not buying. Plus, I just generally think their apparel looks better with both.

Motiv's not Starbucks where everyone knows your logo.

People outside of bowling do not know what Motiv is anyway. Not sure why it matters other than for personal preference.

I don't blame them for not wanting their full name on those shirts. They produce some of the ugliest designs in the industry. Motiv is a company in dire need of a graphics artist for their shirts, balls, bags etc.

I'm a Motiv fan and buy pretty much every ball they release, so keep your d*ck in your pants and spare me your complaints about someone disparaging your favorite company.  :o ;D

I'm stuck with Motiv. I just won't buy those shirts. Between my Jackal Rising and my Forza GT, I couldn't be happier with my ball company choice.

I shot 249-241-243=733 with my Jackal Rising on Tuesday (3/6). Plus I shot 299 with it two weeks ago. This ball is awesome.

I have a dark blue Motiv t-shirt with a small logo and "Motiv" on the front. The back of the shirt has an orange circle with a huge logo and "Motiv" + "Muskegon, MI" inside the circle. I wore the shirt several times last summer outside the lanes.

I never got a comment from anyone about the shirt.
