I don't know if I'm the only one experiencing this, but the images aren't showing up.

It would apear that the image url needs the www in there. Right now the url to the image is just showing http ://nwogeo..blah..blah (space added between the http and : so that it wouldn't turn it into a link). If I paste that url into the browser, it returns nothing. However, if I add the "www" it shows the picture.

I'm having no problems viewing the pictures. Of course it's 4pm and the problem may have been fixed.

I think last years design is fine. I haven't seen any other designs but why chnage it? "If it's not broke don't fix it"

If you're not voting for option "C" in the polo shirt voting or option "I" in the tee-shirt voting because it says "geocaching" instead of "geocachers", that can be changed.

And, the final version of the tee shirt image is slightly different than the one displayed. At gooddog's request, I had added http://www.nwogeo.org to the design.

I'm not sure why he posted the old one.

Actually I didn't post any of them, I'm not that computer proficient. The final version , it this entry wins, may be a little different, or may not be chosen if it costs $50/shirt.
I'll take the winning entries to the shirt shop and see what they cost. Stay tuned.

Why not just go through cafepress.com for the T-Shirts?

It looks like someone already set one up in the name of nwogeo http://www.cafepress.com/nwogeo Though, I don't recognize the logo there.

I have a cafepress store. If anyone wants a product with a specific picture on it, I'd be glad to put it on a shirt, coffee mug, thong underwear, whatever.

.


I'll check into it, but if the price of the unidentified shirt is correct, $14.99, that is way to high. We only sold our shirts for $12.50, and we made a good profit on that for our event fund shelter rental.

Although it is a little late now, in hindsight we should have added some text that the designs were flexible and things like wording and such could be changed for the final designs.

My preferences for instance are adherence to standardized formats that we have all accepted in the past. Such as "Northwest Ohio Geocachers" with that capitalization. And the acromyn version being "NWOGEO" with all caps. For the web address, we elected to use http://www.NWOGEO.org with the center capitalized and possibly a larger font.

Congratulations to Bizbe for his T-shirt design, and to Team Soaring who's design on our current shirt won for the polo shirt contest. I'll get in touch with the rest of the steering committee and see how we want to procede. I have priced both shirts already. The polo shirts with the embrodery will be about double the cost of the t-shirts. Both costs will depend on the number of shirts ordered. Stay tuned.

I don't know where you plan to get the shirts, but I've had great luck with Michigan Silk Screen and Sign, 419-885-1163. They did my son's boy scout troops shirts last summer for about $4 each. It was just one sided and a one color logo, but still a good price. I don't know about embrodery though.

That sounds about right, depending on the quality of the shirt. This tree shirt is 5 colors, thus 5 screens. That ups the price. We also get Jerzee 50/50 which is a little better shirt. I'll get my butt in gear and get some more info up either tonight or Fri. and we can start taking orders at the meet/eat. We will have to have a minimum # of orders to do this shirt. Probably 25
