    WA OC Shirt Concept...

    Sfter talking with a few people this weekend at the Vancouver dealybobthingie it was brought to my attention that perhaps we should come up with a WA OCDO shirt (other than the awesome coffee and guns shirts that is) I have included a few mockups of the total size of the main part of a large shirt (no sleeves or neck sorry) just to gauge interest and see what seems to be preferred. This is just a concept and a (very rudimentary) attempt at this point. Feel free to let me know what you guys like/dont like etc....

    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, that our feet may swiftly carry out Thy command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee and teeming with souls shall it ever be.
    E nomine Patri, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti."

    You could even make some of those the backs, with the logo being on the front.

    I was thinking the exact same thing. Actually, I thought the second pic was the back at first. I liked it!

    Of course I think this is a great idea and liked everything I see. But I try and not to get my hopes up, over the years I have seen many promises of t-shirts and even signed up for a few and other than the gunbucks shirts I have never personally seen anyone fallow through

    My only suggestion here is a font that's more readable at a distance.

    Zazzle.com. Very easy to set up custom T-shirts/bumperstickers/mugs, etc. Sell one or a million, or just order one for yourself. I have all the graphical talent of a damp sponge. If devildoc wants to provide me with the finished graphic files, I'll set up something for sale on my zazzle account within a few hours.
    It is very wise to not take a watermelon lightly.

    When we get to that point, I can get pricing on these from a company that we use for all of our conference logo wear...

    Because I can't carry a cop.
    Is that really what we want our slogan to be? I've always considered that a dumb/meaningless retort to a serious question.

    As to the other phrases: why so In Your Face?

    I recommend just the logo with the URL, in an easy-to-read font.

    Just the logo. All the other writing is confusing to the reader. When you say 'open carry', most people say, "Huh?". Use the KISS phrase.

    I agree with the last three posts. No need for all the extra smart-ass/smarmy comments. Keep it simple and professional.

    How about a T-Shirt that has a silk-screened picture of your favorite pistol in an IWB holster. Something to wear when you can't wear the real thing?

    Phrase on front

    I like #4, and a more readable font (time new roman?). Just the WA logo on back as big as possible. Also thanks to the logo designer who I think did something similar for NV.

    I think the green circle thing with WA state would make a nice Belt buckle and a nice leather belt tooled with OCDO to the left of you rear center belt loop and .ORG to the right would be nice.

    How about a picture of ...

    How about a picture of a gun canted in an open holster (Glock in a Sherpa Blackhawk perhaps?) on each side of the shirt at the hip so it looks like one is openly carrying?

    Found a bunch of OC Tshirts, though most are from other states' organizations. I like them and may have to buy some of the less localized ones.

    I agree. I thought the goal of this forum, this entire forum, is to NORMALIZE OC, along with standing up for our rights, 2A and all the others. What is normal about wearing T shirts that are in your face and draw attention to ourselves?!? The guns and coffee T shirts poke fun and make people smile because most people in this area know what it's about. Why this constant drive to set ourselves apart from everyone else? What is normal about that? Doesn't wearing your sidearm set you apart enough? This is getting into the realm of being show offs. This has nothing to do with standing up for our rights, OC or otherwise. Do as you please, I will not be buying one.
