BarCamp Milwaukee 2 T-Shirt Mockup

BarCamp MKE 2 Shirt Mockup: Side ViewYesterday I visited MJM Ventures, the company who is printing our BarCamp Milwaukee 2 T-Shirts. They kindly got a sample of a Gildan Sand colored shirt, so I could see the color and create a mockup.

Wow! What a perfect color! It's neutral with a hint of warmth and light enough to work with out dark gold and navy blue colors.

Today I created a quick ink-jet iron-on mockup of the BarCamp shirt, to figure out the correct size of the imprint and to make sure the colors would look good on the shirt's surface. I'e done many ink-jet iron ons before and they are a great way to envision shirt designs or make custom shirts.

I think the emblem is going to be enlarged a tad, and then I need to find a good Pantone gold that's not too greenish. For whatever reason, the dark gold we had been using has a tendency to go toward the green, when I want it to stay warm and rich.

Next week, the art gets finalized along with the sponsor list.

To secure one of the t-shirts, you must register to attend BarCamp Milwaukee 2 before Wednesday the 26th, when the art goes to the printer!

Mike, I'm glad you stepped up to take care of the shirts this time. Last year I was so busy I just crossed my fingers, sent off the art, and hoped for the best. They turned out ok, but I'm really looking forward to these BarCampMilwaukee2 shirts.

My pleasure Pete, it's the least I can do to further the cause. Besides, doing the shirt design with Jen has been great fun! :-)

P.S. Should I be using BarCampMilwaukee2 when I use the name rather than spacing out the words?
