Forum .LRN Q&A: .LRN t-shirts coming to a post office near you
I'm not sure yet what the final price will be but it should be less than 10 Euros each.
If the institutions (MIT, Heidelberg, etc.) would group together and say how many t-shirts they would be interested in and what sizes, that would be helpful.
If so, what are the order details you need (besides size), and where should I fax them to?
yes, of course you can order even if you weren't at the social! At this point I am merely trying to get an idea of how many t-shirts to order as this will influence the price.
Once I have an idea of how many t-shirts I can safely buy I'll get all the details about the shirts etc. We have a contact here in the office so I think we might get a decent deal.
Now... Can I have a photo of the beer included on the back of the shirt?
One comment - use a quality t-shirt. Here in the US the standard for years has been the Haines 100% pre-shrunk cotton Beefy-T ... they're more comfortable and tend to last longer than man-made fabrics or 50% blends. Don't know what the equivalent would be in Europe, though, but I'd rather spend an extra buck on a quality T rather than scrimp on quality.
I'm of the same opinion as Don. There's shirts and there's shirts. I still have nightmares of a Garfield t-shirt I once bought from Turkey that felt like I had put spikes into my skin
Count us in for 100 t-shirts. We will pay for those who attended. Thanks for doing this...
thanks a bunch for that bulk order! Here is the current order status (yes Lars, I signed you up too...):
Jarkko 2 with, 3 without
Carl 4 with, 6 without
Roberto 2 without
Torben 2 (with or without?)
Randy Ferrer 3 (with or without)
Simon 1 with
Al Essa 100 (with or without back?)
Peter 1 with, 1 without
Lars 1 with, 1 without
Total: 125 (if my counting serves me right)
We are getting the highest quality t-shirt in black and it looks like the price will be roughly 8 Euros. How to best ship the t-shirts and how much this will cost I haven't looked into yet.
Can everybody indicate if they want the Copenhagen 2003 Seminar with this institution listing on the back or not please.
Those 2 are "with"... actually, make that 3.
I was visiting the department a few days ago and it looks quite good at the moment
how big do you envision the logo on the chest. Like normally small in the left side, or stretching across the whole front?
I was envisioning the official .LRN logo, fairly big, centered over the chest.
Design ideas are welcome.
2. Just a logo makes little sense. Do we have a slogan or visual/graphic (Copenhagan > Mermaid??) Should it be plan and boring (like the ole' aD khaki caps)? Ideal (read typical) would be a signature-logo on the left chest, and graphic/list et al on the back.
thanks so much for the offer to help with the design, we could sure use that! You'll find the official .LRN logo in EPS format here:
I prefer large glow-in-dark letters on the front with some reference (reverence?) to "København" Conference also, but will accept the smaller letters adjusted to a side as suggested --since the idea is partly to promote dotLRN in a wide range of environments.
I'd like to see a backside option that more closely fits the original description --sort of like a rock concert t-shirt that shows venues.
I was keen on the rock-concert style university listing on the back, but I might abandon this idea just to simplify things. Also, I can't really promise that I'll get around to following through with this little project in the coming weeks. Anybody else who is eager to see these t-shirts becoming reality shouldn't wait for me but feel free to make it happen on own initiative. Just drop me a note if you do.
We added the dotLRN.org url to the front, below the official logo for reference.
The list of the institutions on the back come from Collaboraid's website and are listed in no particular order.
The lrnshirtfrontside.eps file uses a bitmap of the official dotLRN eps file mentioned earlier in the thread as we couldn't edit the file directly.
No attempt was made to show the entire shirt --only a template of the portion to be processed (silkscreened?).
The lrnshirt*.eps files were created on a mac, and just now viewing them, I see that the "foreign" characters aren't showing right in ghostview. =(
