• The t-shirt will be dark gray or black.

• Two colors max, with one color being white. The second color will print on top of the white on a dark shirt. Using only white in the design is OK.

• Design space is 12" x 12" max (no wraparounds, etc.) front and back.

• The design should capture the idea of sharing, learning, community, equality, technology — along those lines.

• The back must include sponsor names as listed on the site at A list will probably work the best, but hey, if you have a crazy cool idea, just make sure all sponsors are listed and are treated equally on the back design (i.e. Don't make some sponsor names huge and others tiny — all sponsors are equal partners).

Here's a sample of the BarcampMilwaukee2 sponsor area on the back of the shirt from last year:
