Ok, what do you think of this one? I can't please y'all, but I want to get it as acceptable as possible before I start printing them.

Nice, of course I cannot afford to buy any of your fine wares at this moment in time (but oh how I want to!)

But that is a very nice T shirt, if I could I would buyone and actually not wear a collared shirt to show it off

*ETA* The Wolverine [back picture] would make an excellent decal!!

I think we have hit the point of seperation. For me adding the "Wolverines" is a little over the top. Just leaving the code makes it a bit more subtle, others (In fact it seems most) seem to like the over the top version.

What does the chair signify? And why is there a guy holding an AK in the air? It looks like some militant group's logo.

Hold the boat. Turn in your man card.


You mean to tell me you've never seen Red Dawn?

Your assignment for the day is to watch Red Dawn!

I like the shirt btw. I might be in for one.

I think he looks kind of wimpy the way he's holding the AK, higher up and the barrel further from vertical would make him appear like he's not a 100lb shrimp struggling to hold it up.

Yeah! I saw it a long time ago. I still don't get the chair reference. And Russia is not a threat any more. What gives?

DVDTracker I think you might want to find a more masculine font for Woverines. That font is a little too pretty. You might try Greeting Monotones or Informal Roman.

"The chair is against the wall" and "John has a long mustache" are lines from when they're listening to the radio.

Let me see if I can cover all the questions/comments....


What price range are they


They'll be $14.99 (S-XL), $15.99 (2XL) and $16.99 (3XL)


For me adding the "Wolverines" is a little over the top. Just leaving the code makes it a bit more subtle, others (In fact it seems most) seem to like the over the top version.



I don't do subtle.


I think he looks kind of wimpy the way he's holding the AK, higher up and the barrel further from vertical would make him appear like he's not a 100lb shrimp struggling to hold it up.



That silouhette is taken directly from a screen cap from Red Dawn. Technically, it IS a 100lb shrimp holding that AK.


DVDTracker I think you might want to find a more masculine font for Woverines. That font is a little too pretty. You might try Greeting Monotones or Informal Roman.



I picked that font (www.myfonts.com/fonts/wilton/shallow/) as it looks similar to the grafitti/spraypaint they used in the movie. However, I found that while I was at work, otherwise I'd pop in my DVD and get a better feel for what it looks like. When I get home today, I'll watch it again to get a better idea of the "typeface".

Ah, that makes sense. Pretty nit picky of me to even bring it up. I just saw Wolverine and thought - Wolverine is such a fierce animal - the font should be sharper - however thinking back to the movie it was probably spray painted on.

Could you make an exact copy of the graffiti?

Wore my Molon Labe shirt yesterday. Unfortunately it was cold so I had to wear a jacket over it and didn't get to piss off any of the college liberals.

I think those were codes in "The Longest Day," too. I'm sure of "John has a long moustache."

My favorite is, "There is fire at the travel agency."

I'd like better with "the chair is against the wall." on the front, and just the AK guy on the back. So as it is, but lose the "wolverines".




I'll be in for one or two either way.

Try Captain Spandex for a font. Patty

I don't know [or at least I didn't try] to stagger the letters but what do you think?



Besides the W being wrong? I'll just back out and let the pros handle this.

I'd totally be down for one (or more) with the font from the film.

When all else fails, fire up Illustrator and trace it!

Let's see how these sell first and what other colors will be most requested. Personally, I think it'd look cool with the a black shirt, the AK-dude in red and the text in white.
