I have an idea for the forum members attending the celebration in September. My cousin happens to run a small stiching/screen printing business and it gave me the idea of having t-shirts made for us to wear on Saturday, the day of the Axiom event. This project has already been approved by Ian.

Basically, the design would be something small on the chest of the shirt, identifying us as forum members with our user names underneath. It would be stitched on the shirt since it's the least expensive method. I'm not sure how embroidery would look on a t-shirt, but I could possibly get polo shirts instead, depending on the cost. When I submit the design to my cousin, along with quantity and what type of shirts we want, I can get a final price from her. However, I'm not asking everyone to pay for the shirts, but help would be appreciated since I won't be able to afford paying for the entire project alone. What's important to me is that everyone wear them to the event...or it defeats the purpose of having them made.

If it sounds like something you all might be interested in, does anyone have suggestions on designs? Ian gave the approval to use the Axiom logo. Is anyone good with Photoshop?

One more thing...I've not seen my cousins work before. I trust she will do a good job, but she's new at the business as well. If we decide to do this, I will have her make one shirt with the final design, and I'll have her take a picture of it for everyone's approval.

Thanks!
Mary

I am totally IN, Mary!

I admire you for going public with this project, and hope you will not end up spending too much time on it.

I'll be happy to contribute monetarily.

I think we should make Mark do the photoshop stuff. Really, what's he done for anyone lately?

Maybe Axiom could "donate" the shirts this way they would already have Axiom's log/name on it.

Ian offered to help with the cost, but we are all going to need different sizes of shirts, not to mention I'd like our names stitched on them too. I wouldn't expect him to go through that trouble.

I think there is enough time for people to put in an order to Axiom for the size of shirt they require and then have it shipped to your cousin. The name would then be listed on the order form with the shirt.

Mary, there's several of us here that are good with Photoshop and can play around with some ideas.

You already know that I support this project, but can I offer some concerns? (I'm hesitant to muddy these waters for you!!)

I'm ALSO not too sure about an embroidered T-Shirt. Personally, I would rather see a Polo with a "generic" Axiom logo on it, with individual name tags being worn as "name tag stickers" for the day.

If I have my name stitched onto a shirt, I know I'll never wear it again. If it was a Polo (or, I guess, a T-Shirt for that matter) that DIDN'T have my name on it, I'd get a decent amount of use out of it.

In other words, a shirt (in particular, a nicer one) can have use for that day and many days after... IF it's not permanently embroidered with something dumb sounding like "Medic8r".

We can have a "Vote on the logo design" Poll.....

Hi Mark! I totally see what you're saying. But, I think we should at least add something like "forum member" to the shirt though to make it less generic. I didn't want Ian to think I was going to make a lot of shirts which were generic enough to sell since they already sell polo shirts here...but for $45! Yikes! Having our user name on the shirt would prevent this. But, if we could come up with something more personal to us as forum members, I think he would be okay with it. Also, I think t-shirts would be the way to go since it is less expensive. My cousin could easily do a screen print as long as we only had one design for all shirts...eliminating the user name.

I will check with her on the cost of embroidered polos too. If we could all get more use out of the shirt, that would be a nicer option. When we get the final design figured out, I'll submit it to Ian for approval.
