ok, I hear you, a T-shirt

April 23rd, 2008 (10:36 pm)

Apparently there is interest in an "OH JOHN RINGO NO" T-shirt. Okay, folks, I hear you. Ideally, if enough people want them, we can print up a bunch. I'd like to see about doing something charitable with this, if we do it -- maybe the Helen Bamber Foundation, which angevin2 mentioned in the comments of the review post, as well as a veterans' charity (maybe John could suggest one he'd like), could benefit. If only a few people are interested in shirts, we could try a print-on-demand thing.

So, let's make it a community project. If you'd actually buy an OH JOHN RINGO NO T-shirt, post a comment to that effect. If you think you've got a good design for an OH JOHN RINGO NO T-shirt, post the image in comments below. I'll winnow down to the finalists, and we can have a poll. Sound OK?

UPDATE: It's official. The T-shirt project is now JOHN RINGO ENDORSED, and he's approved the Helen Bamber Foundation as the charity beneficiary for the T-shirt sales. (Yes, they'll probably be horrified, as they complain about Gitmo on their web page, but the Foundation helps a lot of women who've been forced into prostitution -- and I ask you, isn't that exactly what Mike does? ...in his way.) No design entries so far, so I'm going to talk to some fanartists and get something nice drawn up. I'll send the word out when we're ready to go.

UPDATE AGAIN: Design work is in progress by a surprise artist! Will let you know when we're ready to go.

UPDATE YET AGAIN: Apologies for the delay -- two artists are sketching, and both have had lots of other things come up. Remarkably, people who have skills seem to be in demand.

UPDATE: THEY'RE HERE!!! You can now buy OH JOHN RINGO NO shirts, to benefit the Helen Bamber Foundation. Details here; shirts are here. Shirt design and artistry by vito_excalibur, of story and song.

I do believe I would. Although I think in this case, I'd have to forgo the onesie for my daughter.

(What? She has way cooler clothes than I do.)

commies

If you have a design you think would be good for an OH JOHN RINGO NO t-shirt, post your design in a reply to this comment!

(Fan art is absolutely welcomed and encouraged, particularly if it illustrates (NOT EXPLICITLY FOR GOD'S SAKE) a moment of OH JOHN RINGO NO.)

Re: Reply to this comment to design a shirt.

I personally would just like huge Times New Roman or Arial Font CAps across the boobies. White on black or black on colour.

New reader, and in!

Perhaps just something simple.. "OJRN" on the front pocket and "OH" (big letters), new line "John Ringo" (smaller letters), new line "NO" (big letters)

Holy crap! I love that icon. It's so much more appropriate than the one I use for this sort of thing.

Made sure to have one in red -- lots of folks asked for that. :)

Just please, can the shirt be a color other than black or white? I could use a blue shirt. Or red? Maybe army green?
