Textkit T-Shirt Color

If you were going to buy a Textkit t-shirt (maybe it'll be the "Just D'Ooge It" shirt?), which color would you pick?<br />

Black? That's just cheap!<br /><br />Elegance, uni'que-ness, class IS latin hence the PINK with WHITE stitching "Just D'Ooge It". <br /><br />

You know, if we could get a graphic designed, I am fairly sure it's possible to print it off onto a type of paper that can then iron-on-transfer the graphic to a T-shirt. (Based on something a friend did a couple years ago....) Admittedly, the stitched-on type of logo on the shirt-type preferred by Episcopus (I think you said a golf-type shirt?) would last longer, be higher quality, and so on, but it would also result in more logistical problems..... (Which is a pity - I'm with Episcopus on type of shirt/logo.... we just have a small disagreement on colour.... ;) )<br /><br />I'm double-checking my memory on how this was accomplished......<br /><br />Kilmeny

It must be classy though, and, although economical, an iron-on T-Shirt would not be thus...

Does anyone have a Logo Design Idea? One that won't infringe on any Nike trademarks? And preferably one that the Greek-philes can adopt, too? Qualifications thus far include:<br /><br />1. Classy<br />2. Promoting Textkit<br />3. "Just D'Ooge It" (at least for the Latin-philes)....<br />4. Visible on any colour at all

Well, Raya lives in Mauritius so it was suitable that I reply in french.<br /><br />eam inopiam studi non intelligo! pink est grata totis feminis puerisque! <br /><br />Blame me not, for I know not whether 'to understand' be actually 'intelligere' nor whether it be transitive or not. ;)

"all, every" is omnis, omne, totus mainly just means "whole, entire"

<br />Just checked out the site. So if I understand correctly, you can give them your image, and they'll put it on items as orders come in for the item? Or do you have to place an order for a minimum amount before they'll start selling the items online for you?<br /><br />It looks like t-shirts are only available in White or Grey. :( I would really like a black one, second choice would be a navy blue one. Oh well...<br /><br />I rather like the polo shirt, I think it would look very nice with a small stitched logo on the front/left "pocket" side. (I have polo shirts with small stitched logos on the front/left "pocket" and another small stiched logo on one of the sleeves. They look nice and get your point across without being terrible tacky/loud). <br />

I think that, if one be serious about doing this, the end product must represent the class of textkit. Therefore a white T-Shirt would be rather unsuitable...

I'm of two minds here.... The T-shirt idea is likely easiest, because we could come up with a design, speak very nicely to Jeff, and just have a design available for download/print onto T-shirt transfer paper. This lets everyone find a shirt of the colour they want (even pink!), and saves on logistics like acquiring a quantity somewhere, and distributing them, and the cost of doing all that.....<br /><br />But as Episcopus notes, T-shirts aren't anywhere near as classy as Textkit, which means some other option is required.<br /><br />And the other problem is finding a design, and then finding some way of letting everyone look at it! Raya mentioned that she had some design ideas.... Does anyone have any "how to share them around" ideas?<br /><br />Kilmeny

The t-shirt transfer paper is a simpler solution, but it's also one that doesn't float my boat. :(

I dislike salmon as well, but there are worse fish. I think salmon is, strangely enough however, one of the best sushi fish :D

There was a saying by one of the "Roman" (actually one of the Goths. Vandals or various barbarians) emperors who said something like "I am a Roman emperor and therefore do not have to know grammar". Presumably after some nitwit decided to pick him up on his improper use of the subjunctive mood or whatever. If someone can find the correct words this would make a great motto (and fit in with the delusions of grandeur suffered by most of us classics people)

<br />I never really think of salmon as a "pink". It's sort of it's own color. And I don't think it flatters me all that much either! I'd prefer "true" pink color instead of salmon.<br /><br />However if you're talking about sushi, then salmon isn't too bad. It ranks up there for me, right after hamachi and maguro. Miam miam. :) <br />

There goes a design - "TEXTKIT" in the middle, and curving over and under it the two slogans, "Pharr out, man" and "Just D'Ooge It"! Presumably text in black on Textkit-green, or something...... Which should clash nicely with Episcopus' pink shirt.....<br /><br />Kilmeny
