    alright guys, i've got 3 designs so far... please share your ideas on alterations, what you like, what you dislike, etc.

    this one is sort of like a political cartoon... i had a bit of trouble figuring out a good witty line for the last block- any ideas are welcome. or if it seems a bit too contravercial... let me know that, too. at the bottom of the shirt i want to write something along the lines of "Do you want this to happen? Fight to keep the 3-day with steeplechase alive!"

    it was illustrated by a friend of mine.


    this one the coloring is distorted because i made it in power point and in order to save it to the point where i could make it a link it distorted itself- but it looks neat printed out. Picture was sent to me by e-mail, not sure witch BB member it is from, tho. make yourself known http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif and what do i have to do to make sure i can use the picture?

    this one is also distorted for the same reason. I'd love to add real pictures to it, but no one sent me any others. also, the E got cut off on the "THE" during the re-saving, so just imagine it's there http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...rlife/3abc.jpg

    questions? comments? opinions? thoughts? i'm open to anything. these are just "first drafts".

    i want to put all these on the backs of the shirts. On the front of all of them i want to put something in the upper right hand corner that says something like "I support the classic 3-day"... or whatever idea i get that is best from you guys. I have a feeling they are all just going to be on white t-shirts since they are cheapest http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif unless there is a prevailing desire for a certain color.

    at this point i'm still trying to find the best place to get them made, prices, etc. if anyone knows of a particularly good place, let me know http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif otherwise i'm going to stick with something local.

    are there any ideas for other shirt designs? EventerAJ made one on the other thread that you can go look at here

    let me know what you guys think and would actually buy. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    I like the second one. I work in the huge local tack shop so I'd definately wear it to work.

    I like the second one the best too! You should play around with fonts some though. Try something like "baskerville" or a simple "ariel" font. They would make the photo stand out more which I think would get the message across even better.

    Here's a new t-shirt idea:

    " om ined Tr ining" (above photo)
    (steeplechase photo)
    "Not quite the same without A, B, and C" (below photo)

    What do you think?

    Unfortunately it isn't Combined Training anymore. It's Eventing which doesn't contain a, b, or c. Maybe this whole trend started when we changed the name.

    I like the second one too, but I would take out the word "the". My most favorite is the EVENTERS ALPHABET. I think a T-shirt needs to get its message out instantly-no time for reading and figuring stuff out. The cartoon is great but takes too much brain power for the casual passer-by to read and comprehend. I want SEVERAL eventers alphabet shirts!! THANKS for your efforts!! http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/yes.gif

    I like the first one best....but I think we whoudl have something more "to the point " and concise like the second one. The only thing I would change on the second one is have an outline/cartoon chase picture instead of the true picture. Mike make it more gereralized.

    I like the 2nd one best of teh 3. But I really liked Jupes's design that Janet posted ... uh... somewhere. Maybe put the 2nd design on the back and Jupes's on the pocket area in front?

    I vote for #2, and Eventers Alphabet.

    I like using Jupe's logo on the front.

    we'll take a couple of dozen - we're thinking we can be the "local distributer" for Area III YR gang.

    Love the second one, and I personally think the photo works great -- it's reality, and shows the pure joy in the horse's expression!

    The first (cartoon) is very clever, but does take too long to comprehend for a T-Shirt. Could we pool some money and by ad space to get it printed in some of the big magazines???
