Has anyone thought about having the BoB logo put on the back of a t-shirt and then a small size one on the front? Done in the same colors above? Could be neat to have and advertise at the same time.

I want one!

One thing though: every time this gets suggested
on some forum, it becomes a "design the shirt contest."
We need to appoint a dictator and whatever the
shirt is, it is. On those other forums, everybody
had a different idea and we never got shirts.

That's where this is different. There would be no design contest. The current design that is used above in the banner, is perfect, .....very classy looking and would look good on a beige/tan or white t shirt. It already has the pictures of the pipes , so no one will have to ask what is BoB. It has everything you need in a design. Just put one on the front LH chest area as usually is done, and a large one on the back. Smile

If there is interest, my son has a guy who does all his t-shirts for his subwoofer business and I could get pricing for us. Or if the forum rules say that all of these kinds of things must go through the owner of the forum, that's fine too, as long everyone is happy....I'm easy going. Wink

And I'm talking about using just the part on the LH side of the banner, not the whole thing

It seems to me that Jason floated a similiar idea a while back. He's likely out checking babes on a weekend night, but I'm sure he'll share how far this got.

Nice, but I prefer the classy looking logo featured above without Sherlock Holmes on it.

I like the look that it gives, as if it is a wooden sign that would hang outside an old cobbled street B&M in London somewhere. It has the right font and artwork too. cheers

The only pipe smoking T-shirt I have is one my wife won at the 20th anniversary CORPS show. It would be nice to have another one with the BoB logo as you described.

It would probably be advisable to wait until we can actually figure out who owns the logo..

The only T-shirts I own are white cotton crew necks; my wife buys them by the five-pack.

Yep, you can't do anything anymore unless someone has to claim their trademark, or a phrase is registered, all done out of fear....... or even colors now....I just read where UPS has trademarked the color brown....this is so ridiculous, makes me want to move to the South Pacific.

I'm burned slap out on commercialism and sensationalism, both are out of control. Everything is now "extreme" to the point where nothing is extreme because it is so overused and used for normal things. Proves that we are truly a very primitive society after all these years.

I guess you can tell I'm really old, can't you? Wink Slightly burnt out. Like the new saying,

Well, that doesn't change the fact that someone owns this site, it's logo and name, and has certain rights. You can make any darned shirt you want, you just can't sell em or offer em for purchase from a third party without permission. You just have to understand, you can't have some guy just stroll in and say "Hi, I'm going to sell some stuff with your logo on it!". I like your idea, I encourage the enthusiasm and hope it comes to fruition, but lets remember that your host has the right to say yes or no as to whether or not he wants this done. I suggest you make your best, most enjoyable to you presentation to the admin and see what he thinks.

A fine gentleman by the name of Christopher Noble donated the graphic for the site. I did contact him about producing shirts and what not from the logo and he said we could do anything we wanted with it. Very generous of him. the problem is the graphic, not being vector, doesn't scale well. I didn't want to bother him anymore with it being he had been so nice so I hired a cheap design firm to design a graphic that would work better for print. Probably should have went with a more expensive place so we could have gotten something a little higher quality but hey, it was coming out of my pocket and I'm a cheap bastard. Laughing

We've talked about a redesign a few times with all new graphics but it really didn't go to far. My original thought was to set it up in a store like I did and let any profits sit there until there was enough money to do some other projects like the smoker's forum zippo. Stuff like that.

As to ownership. I retained ownership over the name brothersofbriar.com but the site is run by and all content belongs to DPG. Kind of silly but that's how it turned out. I wasn't sure the forum was going to last for a while there but I loved the domain name and didn't want to let it go. Laughing

What to do about the shirt problem and design problem? I'm not really sure but I'm open to ideas and I think DPG is as well being we've tossed around the idea a couple times.

Jason: Thanks for all the information on the logo. Sounds like it would be nice to find someone that could take the logo/sign and reconfigure it so that the graphics would be friendly to work with. Maybe now that we know what is needed, we can round up someone to do this for us affordably. I would chip in some money to the cause.

If the shirt thing should happen and there are profits made...how about using them to help supply the next box pass should there be one? Not saying it's a great idea, just an idea.

You know, now that I'm thinking about it I don't know why I didn't ask Chris if I could pay him on a redesign. I think I was assuming it would just be fairly pricey. $250-500 seems to be the going rate for professional logo design services. I do like the idea of turning the wooden sign part into a vector graphic.

It would be pretty awesome and I would imagine that a lot of the Brothers would love to have BoB gear. It's your baby! afro
