Fwiw, san serif typefaces tend to read as modern, innovative, or up-to-date. Serif typefaces read as traditional, conventional, or sometimes old-fashioned.

I don't really have an opinion about which way you should go; but having worked as a professional graphic artist, I can say with confidence that those qualities will be subconciously inferred.

You might also give consideration to how the original manufacturers marked the heal. You can adhere to the original style or deliberately set yourself apart.

The one thing I would advise is not to use more than two typefaces.

Now I kinda like the Dimond. Definitely needs to be smaller though.
1/2 that size.

Don't care for the second one at all.

Everybody has there own liking.

BAH, just means this is the version for sheep . It comes with no trigger and has a solid bar instead of a barrel, for "Safety"

Thanks from XM25Ren

I thought it was because they can't pronounce "r"

It has a double meaning. Bah sheep and BAH being Bostonese for BAR.
