It came in a cardboard packet with a little sachet in it.  It's Jacquard, iDye.  I bought it at Spotlight (a New Zealand store) It says it's 14 grams... and one packet dyes 2-3 pounds of fabric.  Your suggestion of a teaspoon sounds pretty good.  It also says to add some salt.  It's a bit vague on the wash cycle.  So I just put it in for a full cycle?

If your washer can do a small load, just one hot cycle will be fine.  http://www.jacquardproducts.com/products/dyes/idye/instructions.php
that's a link to the website's instructions.  iDye has a special mix in it, so you can't measure out a teaspoon of product--it won't contain an even amt of dye.

I personally would use masking tape (or blue painter's tape) over the front and just in case back of the image and use RIT black fabric dye.

If the bleached color looks good, why not just bleach the whole shirt?  I've done it before I soaked the tees in salt water, then allow them to dry in the sun, it turned out ok  Grin

I've not tried dying a shirt with a logo but I think it may make the light colours on it murky and yuck.
If you've already bought the dye, would you be able to use an elastic band and strap the logo onto the end of a jar or something, so it is held out of the dye?
What I mean is, place the jar end behind the logo, use a rubber band to strap it on and sit the shirt in the dye-water with the jar holding the logo out of the dye, like an island.
I guess the dye would seep up the fabric but it might keep it from reaching the front of the printed logo...maybe.  Undecided
