    Well, this won't help any; but it's a fun story. Back in the mid-80s, our rep group had just switched from selling Yonex to carrying ProKennex. For a sales meeting at the San Diego home office, one of our guys was still carrying his YONEX garment bag(a great bag, BTW...I used mine for many years). Our boss grabbed the guy as his bag came down the luggage carousel, flipped the bag 'inside out' and relatched the side hooks. Never had seen the boss move that fast!!! Needless to say, the sales guy switched garment bags before showing up at another sales meeting! :)

    Find a garment of similar texture. Take it to a tailor/seamstress and have it sewn on over the logo.

    Blabalot?

    Just kidding.

    Honestly I hate all these billboard bags now as well. It looks like fisher price toys to me. There are not many bags that catch my eye anymore. That Head "Hulk" bag in another thread was pretty wild. I had to throw a lime in my corona after seeing that one.

    I haven't bought a big Babolat bag with logo and letters on it.

    I'm asking if there's a simple way of blanking out the oversized branding.

    Keep up.

    The only thing I can suggest would be careful masking and painting. I am not sure what kind of paint would work. There is Fabric paint out there but some sort of generic spray paint might be a better option. I am guessing that material is plastic. I would find something similar(...an old duffel perhaps) and try some paint to see how it responds.

    Careful masking and spray paint should look pretty professional when its done if you prep it right.

    Theres always that rubberized coating in a can.

    Oh, make sure whatever paint you get will hold up to the heat you put it through. Most paints are not up to the heat inside a car during the summer and can bubble.

    You can use fabric paint to coverup, it's called "plastisol" in art supply circles.

    Dunno if that nylon can handle the heat but you could get some
    heat transfer iron-on vinyl patches cut to right size.
    Usually applied to cotton Ts but I've done it onto other fabrics too,
    most survive the heat but a few don't.
