OK I have more info on the shirts.

Those colors are not exact.  I was thinking you could use a charcoal grey
ink which I have, or straight black ink on the Kelly Green shirt.  The
green shirt will look more like this:

to
see the basic Tshirt I usually offer, and the color kelly green available.
This is a 100% heavy cotton, high quality Fruit of the Loom shirt style
#3831.  It's also offered in women's sizes.  Size S-XL.  2XL-6XL are
available for $3 extra ($23 total).

For the Grey shirt, you could do Athletic grey, or silver.  And the ink I
mix myself, so I could try my best to match it to your logo.

I could do child sizes...... they are XS-XL.
