I was wondering if anyone ever came up with a T-shirt design that could be used on a t-shirt advertising the switchingtomac.com website?

If not, what are the thoughts on them?

I have thought of using the CafePress website but would need to set it up, would anybody be interested in such a shirt?

Don't think CafePress would let me use the actual Calvin logo... Maybe if I stuck a Steve Jobs characacher head on the Calvin body it would be OK??

Good point,

A T-Shirt would be nice.

But rather than a direct Logo for the site, how about a selection of goddies.

Try some things like mugs with

"iMac - Is MY Mac!"

with a pic of the iMac, and on the back

"www.switchingtomac.com"

or

"Once You Go Mac - You Never Go Back!"

You get the picture, these could be on T-Shirts aswell.

That's a good idea!

So let's hear what other pictures, slogans and items people would want?

I've always like Calvin. And your signature pic (Mike) is rebelious. If it weren't for copyright infringement, I would say go for it.

Well we already have the play on the old "black" slogan "once you go Mac you never go back", how about "Mac by popular demand"?

Ya Van too bad about the copy-write thing, it's all fun and games until you get sued!

Sam, I like "Mac by Popular Demand" see if I can work that into something??

The T-shirt that I have seen that slogan on "Black by popular demand" is a black T with white text.  Perhaps a blue next for us to match the colour of Apple.  The letters could even be in the old-school Apple logo colours.

Or typical Black on White Apple. Would have to be careful with any Apple Logos though.

Or morph the Windows logo into the Mac Logo as in Switching to Mac... Like a hybrif that isn't one or the other may get around Copy-write laws?

As far as I am aware, as long as you aren't making profit off of something, copyright is a blurry area.  (Matching cost I don't believe is a problem).

You would have thought that anything promoting Apple products wouldn't get a slapped hand.

Even Apple employees need to get Apple merchandize authorized by Apple before they can get it made up.

Apple, and the Apple Logo, is the seventh most recognized brand name in the world. Seventh. Like just behind "marlboro" and "Pepsi" & "Coke" (Thats three right there.) There is no way Apple is going to let go of control. Look at the fight over "iPhone".
