After a while I wanted to do a shirt for myself. I figured my own forum logo would be best. I managed to screw it up in a few places but it is still wearable.
Before anyone asks...no I can't make more of these. Once you use the stencil it is unusable and thrown away. It takes more work then a normal screen print but you get a unique shirt. We will be doing VSTF shirts at some point but not till later this year at the soonest.

The logo is a natural for your future T shirt project, once you digest your experience with getting the decals made, distributed to members that order them and the payment is in the bank. I look forward to voting on how many I want when you get to that point Brian.

Good point to consider down the road Jim...I like a T-shirt with a pocket on the front, which makes it difficult to have a large logo on the front. Maybe once I buy a couple of standard printed on the front, pocketless shirts and if Brian gets a good response the silkscreener could consider a large print on the back and a small print on the front pocket of maybe the original winged logo (see how I snuck that in there) I've watched the silkscreening process done on a big machine that looks like a huge spider (I think the printer called it a gauntlet), where once a shirt is positioned at the proper place on each "leg" the machine moves in a circle and the screen moves up and down on each shirt as they spin into position...it is amazine how many shirts can be printed in a relatively short period, then after going through a dryer they are repositioned and the pocket print is done. I certainly would be willing to pay more for a T-shirt printed on the front and back, if they are ever offered...as well as being willing to pay more for a lightweight long sleeved shirt with just a single big logo print on either the front or back, which could be accomplished in the same run as the short sleeved pocktless shirts...Ahhh, another one of my short and concise posts...I am a man of few words...
