Re: UWOL News And Announcements!

What would the chance be of getting it done up as a jacket. I wear a jacket more than a T shirt. I would definitely buy one.

Re: UWOL News And Announcements!

For a jacket, it would just require finding a suitable one that's printable (or embroider-able), at a reasonable price and a reasonable minimum run.

For example, Land's End offers these jackets which are brandable with a logo: https://business.landsend.com/Men/Ou...ackets/c/3.5.1

I don't think there's a minimum order, but the branding charges can really add to the price. I've used this company before. They produce our DV Info Net "trade show uniform" shirts, which are very nice long-sleeved collared button-downs with our embroidered DVi logo that are stylish and comfortable. Plenty of other companies offer nearly the same thing, though. It's just a question of how much you're willing to spend. The branding adds a considerable amount to the price.

Re: UWOL News And Announcements!

A Texan and Soylent Green, think its an oxymoron isn't it?

"Soylent Green is made of"

Re: UWOL News And Announcements!

It took you fourteen years to notice that, Dale?!

Soylent Green is nothing more than a plankton-based wafer; flavorful and nutritious.

But... it's in short supply. I understand that Soylent Industries is looking into an alternate source.

One that's more... well... humane, anyway.

Weren't we talking about jackets?

Re: UWOL News And Announcements!

Chris I knew it would most likely have a fair price tag with it. The problem I could see would be getting enough people on board to even make it a possibility. I was hoping more would chime in on this.
Thanks.

Re: UWOL News And Announcements!

Well, securing the artwork is the first step... shouldn't be too much trouble to proceed forward from there.

Re: UWOL News And Announcements!

If we go forward with a new batch of UWOL branded clothes, the limiting factor would as mentioned, most likely be the numbers.
Not sure if we will be able to get the original design. I guess Kevin is trying to contact Mat's family about this?

Meryem is also going to check if she has it on an old computer

Hopefully Meryem has it. I have checked all my harddrives, and no success there.

Re: UWOL News And Announcements!

Tell you what... if we can just get the okay from Mat's family to recreate his artwork, that may be the best way to proceed. I would really like to have new versions of the logo that can be adaptable to more than just jackets and hats... for example, I'd very much like to run a 728x90 leaderboard at the top of the site here to advertise when we have a challenge open, and also to put in our newsletters, and on the main site, etc.

New versions of his design would make that possible. Surely among us we've got someone with the graphic skills to take it on...

EDIT: Here are the original UWOL web graphics from 2009. I had asked for these particular sizes, which were correct for my purposes back then, but they're too small to use now. Plus, the URL is no longer valid. So, we could really use some newly revised versions of these.

Re: UWOL News And Announcements!

Agreed! A logo design that can be adapted to both clothing and online, and other items as well, would be a good idea.

Re: UWOL News And Announcements!

I think the space for the old URL should perhaps be used instead to spell out what UWOL is... "The Under Water, Over Land Challenge."
