4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction.

Though, of course, a tank top would look best with just the logo across the front.

The site banner T-shirt has a good chance of convincing me. It would help people know they've found the proper site when they see the banner online from the T-shirt.

Just want you all to know that I am looking into the t-shirts. The GIF image I have is corrupted, so I'm waiting to hear from the designer about getting a new copy. The GIF is what allows the background to be transparent so we don't have a white rectangle on the t-shirt. Very Happy

Tori, I just emailed you back the email I have from when you sent me the files for the logo. Maybe those'll work??

Draft 1:

Front: paw print with "www.itsahuskything.com" printed below

Back: Forum logo with "A fun and friendly online forum for husky owners." printed below


Reply with:

1. Do we like the shirt color? I tried to keep it in line with forum colors.
2. How's the design? Is this what we were thinking?
3. In your ideal world, how many t-shirts would you want and what type (tank, short-sleeved, long-sleeved).

1 - The color is OK, but it's better than white or gray.
2- LOVE the design!
3- Just for myself, I'd get a tank and a long sleeve or a shirt. If hubby wants one, I'd get him one too.

I'd have to pass this by the person that does the event for our rescue, and if she OK's it, I'd like to get a few extra so we could sell it at pet expos and events.

Would you carry just one color? Or would you have another color besides the shown in the draft?

T-shirts are going to be pricey as is because we're getting the logo which has multiple colors, so I think that just the one color shirt is going to be all we offer. I can play with the t-shirt quality and color a lot more than I can with the design as I think everyone agrees that this design is pretty much what we wanted.

1. Love it - beats white or black!
2. Love it too! - Might try to add the word "informational" in the forum description - just a thought.
3. 2 - short sleeved for sure, maybe one long sleeved

Love the shirt color!


2. How's the design? Is this what we were thinking?

I do like the design as is and would be happy with it if that's what everyone prefers.

Not to be nitpicky but just thought I'd throw this suggestion out there for the front of the shirt.

Would it be possible to have a paw print that shows the nails since it's more accurate for a dog? Not a major thing I know but dog prints show nail marks and cat prints don't. But then again if everyone prefers a more cartoonish look then the original is a good fit.
Something like this:
or this ? No problem if it's not what people prefer, I tend to get a bit too technical for my own good sometimes. Razz

Also, how would it look with the website address were curved upward sort of like a wide "u" under the paw print? That's kinda what I had pictured in my mind to keep the front logo smoother and more curved.

Just throwing some added suggestions out there but I do like it as is so it's up to everyone else. Smile


3. In your ideal world, how many t-shirts would you want and what type (tank, short-sleeved, long-sleeved).

Just one short sleeved t-shirt for me.

i like the color of the shirt
i like Vals 2nd paw print better, the U part of the address might work but would it make it harder to read?
"A fun, friendly, informational online forum for husky owners." like that idea
and i would get a tee and maybe one for ken

Draft Round 2:

I chose a lighter gray because I changed the t-shirt to a 50/50 cotton/poly blend to save on costs and this gray was available. I could go back to the darker grey, but I think this lightens the shirt up a bit.

AS IS....the cost would be $20/shirt to get them shipped to me. IF we want to donate money, the cost to you all would probably be around $30/shirt so we can get about $5/shirt donation in there HOWEVER, if we order 30 shirts, the cost goes down to a more reasonable $15/shirt, making the cost to you (once you add in the cost of my shipping) $25/shirt which I think is more doable.

Because of the logo color, $15/shirt is as cheap as I can find, but again, that means we'd have to order 30 shirts. I can email the company to see how much it would go down if we took out 1 layer of color in the logo (probably the green of the grass) if you are all interested.



Changed to "A fun, friendly and information online forum for husky owners."


ETA: The price will drop by about $5/shirt if we take away the green of the grass on the back logo, which I don't think is a big deal. I would really like to not go over $25/shirt.

I wouldn't mind, but that means that I am fronting a lot of money that I don't really have to front...

I love it Tori! And I think it'll look great even without the green...it's so minor anyway!

What's the current shirt count so far?

What we can do is if I can get 30 t-shirts ordered and paid for, we can keep the green. Otherwise, I say we get rid of the green to keep the shirts at $25 each.

Unless people are really willing to pay $30 a shirt... but I just don't see that happening....

Can live without the grass for the additional $5. I do like the original color just slightly better but can do either, just think the original sets off the logo a little better. Love the new paw print. Can go either way on the curved web address.

Still in for 2 shirts.

Jenn - would you want to 'sell' it at the meet-ups?

I agree with Jen that the grass does make it pop, but then again it's not that much grass to pay the additional $5 for the green. I mean in reality it's only $5 more, but $25 does SOUND better than $30.

Has anyone every used Cafepress before for t-shirts? Their prices are much more competitive, but I've never used them and I fear for the quality. The company I'm getting my quotes from is one that I've used before and trust, so I'm wary to use CafePress without knowing someone who's had a good experience.

CafePress would also not have the curved address on the front. It would have to be straight. But everything else would be roughly the same.

ETA: For those who'd want tanks, we can easily do them on CafePress for $20/shirt.
