Team Omar logo

by Omar ~ December 22nd, 2009.

Now, as we all know, we are getting sweatshirts, which means we need to be able to come up with something really amazing on them, otherwise they are a waste, so brainstorm!!!!

I was thinking like it could say team Omar on the front but the O in Omar could be a pokeball or a master ball or some kind of ball. And then on the back we could have #’s like 1,2,3 to show how many members, but i call 0, AKA a ball of some sort again :)

    I thought that maybe instead of numbers, we could each be a different type of ball.

    The problem there is that printers are used to putting letters/numbers, and making each shirt with a different graphic could be a problem.

    How would you know how many members just by seeing the shirt? I mean, if you saw someone wearing #2 how many members are in the team? You’d have to see ’em all together to tell, anyway.

    As for the sweatshirts, I’ll state that my preference has always been zip-up hoodies. I dunno if that helps or hurts, but it’s my $0.02.

    • I can do balls instead of numbers. I however, am not a fan of zip-up hoodies. And i dont know if i want the picture/words on the front to be cut in half by a zipper.

      And for the #’s, it shouldn’t matter, were a team and teams usually have #’s on the back, so yeah you wouldnt really know unless we were all standing together, which would be cool IMO :)

      I am a fan on the look of the Timer ball and the Luxury ball. Those are my 2 Favorites, timer being my favorite. :)

    Timer ball looks cool. Luxury ball just exudes class, though. :)

    I hear you about the zipper. If you did a zip-up, you’d want to make the front gfx small enough to stay on one side.

    I just don’t like pulling it over my head. I wear zip-up hoodies almost every day (except in summer), because I can take ’em on/off easy. You don’t have to be concerned about your hair being perfect like I do. :P

    Whatever is fine, though. The gfx are the main concern at this point. Heck, it could be a short-sleeve T-Shirt for that matter.

    As you may have figured out, Tonya and I are fairly frugal (aka cheap). Combine that with Tonya’s desire to do crafts and such, and I think, that if she has a say, she would vote to do the shirts ourselves. I am under the impression that Abdi is revved up about the shirts and wants to go all out, and I know that Team Omar isn’t an arts and crafts club. Having said that, though, Tonya does seem interested in helping out, and she has looked into some some stuff. Here’s some of her findings.

    If we have shirts done, it’ll be about $40 each. If we did some kind of transfers, we could do that for about $10-15 (plus the cost of whatever shirt each person wanted). The plus side here is that we could design a logo (or set of graphics) and use them on different items. I could get a zip-up, Omar could get a pull-over, etc. Even Ava could get something in a girl’s size.

    Here are some links that Tonya gave me.
