Tre cool Sciky.

I like how they used LED's for the eyes and the voice recorder. :D

We could make a light-up halo and make the recorder say "PRAISE GOOGLE!"

Fuck all that.

For low volumes and full colour you want T-Shirt Transfer Paper:

Easypeasy lemon squeezy.
Some of you young 'uns will need to familiarize themselves with the iron.

It's that funny thing your mum rubs your clothes with to get all the creases out.
Ask her how to use it, but wait till she's sitting down!

Iron ons suck.
Silk screening is where it's at when you wanna make a nice t-shirt with a design.

Yeah but a fuck a load of work for CoG.

You've got 5 colours if you want some black!

A CoG shirt that doesn't have the proper Google colours will suck!

Major headache city.

......Hmm. Very good point.
But doing the DIY silk screening it poses more of a challenge, and if you successfully get a nice CoG t-shirt out of it...it's more satisfying.

Much easier to turn your own design into a stencil & use fabric paints which come in all sorts of colors, glow in the dark, sparkly, etc. And which lasts longer than iron on which tends to peel off after so many washings.

Plus the feel of iron ons aren't too comfortable against the skin.

Dude, you just take in a CD with the jpeg on it.
T-Shirt printing company does the rest for like 6 bucks per shirt.
Take them a couple of sample shirts. Soooo worth it.

Sorry, but the silkscreen is messy and out of style, because you can't do multiples as easily or as fast as with the newer technology. Plus, you have to use wet paint with a DIY squeegee which I believe is good for just a few shots. But, maybe you were speaking of another way that I haven't done yet...and not by hand.

Right? Right.

But a printing co. won't do it as the Google logo is a reg. trademark. We would have to do it ourselves.

O.K. Then, you will need to slightly alter the typeface of the COG logo so it doesn't exactly match the Google logo. If google cared about it, we would've heard. If the cog tradmark isn't copywritten, wow, what a great idea!

Or, you can leave this one as is, and make a new one with "CoG." Do something wacky, creative, fun, or like deadpan, straight and dry. It would be just as cool to have our own CoG logo in a completely different typeface. Just straight black on white or white on a color works, centered in front, back or over the pocket. Simple and clean.

You know:



CoG



Figure it out, send it to the copywrite office with $30 and it's ours, Matt's, whoever pays for it and whoever designs it.
