RW Tshirt ideas?
Fri Feb 01, 2013 9:07 am
  • I was looking around on the web trying to find a cool russell wilson shirt, and while there are a few ok ones out there there wasn't anything that I really liked enough to buy.

    Then I remembered "Oh yeah I'm an artist".

    So I could probably make a cool enough shirt. I don't really know about the legality of it but I'm assuming as long as I don't include any logos it should be fairly safe.

    So that leads me to the next question, what kind of RW shirt would you like to see? Should there be text? Should RW be running or throwing or standing in the pocket ready to throw? Doing an interview with "The separation is in the preparation" at the bottom???

    Throw out some ideas and If I get around to doing this I will let everyone know where you can get one.

  • I also want to do one that has 'ghosted' images of 4 or 5 lombardi trophies and sell it along with 4 or 5 lombardi trophy patches people can iron on as we rack 'em up.

  • They've already made a Russell Wilson shirt:

  • Ok OP I think if you go for making your own shirt you should go for humor. How about this idea?

    On the front it has a silhouette of Wilson making a play.

    Under it reads "My wife said Im too short"

    On the back it reads "Lol just kidding"

    I agree with the humor sentiment, except I'd have a picture of Wilson with a grin on his face on the front with the caption "Takes d*ck pics" and then on the back it would say "for his wife" with a picture of Russell and his wife at the Children's Hospital of Seattle. Not the classiest shirt, but sure to be a winner. Also, any Brett Favre bashing on the t-shirt adds cool points to the shirt of course.

  • How about that picture of Gruden holding his thumb and forefinger a half inch apart with a caption along the lines of "This is the height difference between Russell Wilson and Drew Brees AND the size of Mel Kiper's brain."

  • I am a screen printer. I have been trying to make a non-corny Wilson/Seahawks shirt that I can sell for the entire season. Without being able to use the logo for profit, stinks.
    But for my own personal use.. I can say I have things no one else will ever have!
    Then I got to thinking. Why can artists sell things they draw with a team and their logo. Why can a Tattoo artist reproduce and sell NFL logos. ON BODIES. There is a line somewhere. I Will find it.

    Maybe If I finish this shirt you can help me out!

    Depends on what you mean by artists selling things.

    In the case of copyright infringement you have to ask yourself two questions:

    1.) is the infringement taking money away from the owner of the IP (intellecutal property) logo, symbol, etc etc. either via direct competition or defamation of the owner/property (damages)

    2.) is the infringement making the artist money in such large amounts that the owner should be entitled to benefit from it. (profit)

    In most cases if the damages or profit just aren't worth the owner's time they will let it go.

    In your example, it's not really worth the NFL's time if they see someone with a seahawks tattoo to send someone to interrogate them, find out where they got it, etc. Also the NFL doesn't provide a tattoo service that I know of so there is no competition; in this case there is really no damage to the reputation or finances of the nfl and frankly it's just not worth thier time to care.

    in the case of other artists it's pretty much the same idea, is it worth it to make a case out of it?

    IP law is fairly black and white, you either own something or you don't, but the enforcement is really all about how much time/money is worth spending to squelch abusers.

  • Also here is a quick mock up of one idea, obviously the whole figure would be in the style of the jersey and i'd have to work on the lettering so it was clearer.

  • If I wasnt lazy I would make a Rusellmania t-shirt with this font in seahawk colors and have it say GO HAWKS! on the back. probably would be infringement though...

  • Had a similar idea to this but was running short on time so done this quick one instead, the other was sort of opposite expression on Wilson's face in a line up with big menacing people either side, with something like "who's dangerous?" above "that's him #3!" below, sort of like men in black shooting range scene where he shoots the quantum physics girl.

  • I like the Wilson lineup idea. That you could get away with - no logos or anything.

    I also think the "Straight Out of Compton" idea has merit, but of course you kids born after '89 don't know that
    it should actually be "Straight Outta Compton". I'd lose the "via Stanford" part and make "25" more a part of the design
    (or as much as possible before the NFL starts breathing down your neck).

    PM me if any of these reach the printing stage. I need new Seahawks shirts and love anything that has no NFL logo.

    Don't you love this unsolicited design advice from someone with no graphic design ability whatsoever?

  • Some cool ideas. The only problem with the actual photos is of course copyright issues. And to print a photo image is not cheap. Especially to screen print.
    You could use Dye Sublimation. But it would have to be on white Poly. Or Direct To Garment printing.

    Could do a vector toon of wilson in a few colors or even one color if the likeness is good.

    I know there are a ton of thieves printing and selling on Cafe Press. They advertise no infringement but I have sent things through as a test and was able to buy them.

  • A friend and I put these shirts together a couple years back after the Hawks beat the Saints in the playoffs. We thought we were going to make a killing selling them before the NFC Championship game, but of course, that never happened (damn Bears).

    Note the non-descript stylings. Your safest with silhouettes. Boring yes, but it beats the imminent NFL Properties seize and desist letter that is FedEx'd to you within milliseconds.

    Anybody want a shirt? I think we still have hundreds, LOL.

  • I keep coming back to the essence of #3 is "separation is in the preparation"

    I have no art skills whatsoever, but, off of your separation/preparation idea, could you take the letters of "preparation" and artfully make the "PR" also somehow read as an "S" so it reads both ways? idk.


    also, Wrestlemania -> Russellmania
