Will this do?

https://store.tolkienguide.com/listing/pedantry (black text for light colored shirts)

https://store.tolkienguide.com/listing/pedantry-white-text (white text for dark colored shirts)

I have ordered a sample to make sure everything looks good (the store image is low resolution and I want to make sure the text prints cleanly).
