Hey Folks,

Came up with this shirt design today--it's still rough, but you get the idea.

The mandolin is such a beautiful instrument, the shirt designs almost make themselves.

This is a fairly modern look--not sure if folks would go for it or not. Let me know what you think, good or bad! Would you buy one for $15? Why or why not?



Mando Hangout Shirt Design Idea

The basic concept ain't bad, but all the squiggles are a distraction from the mandolin. It's a beautiful form on its' own.

Yeah, it's a cool look without the squiggles to. I'll post it that way tomorrow so everyone can see it that way too n

Nice work Eric. I do agree with Woodman, though, I'd like to see it without the squiggles. (Actually, as it is, it reminds me just a little of the outfit on the guy in the recent beer commercials.) Otherwise, yes, I'd pay $15 for one.

I like it. I like the way it's falling off the shirt and the fact that it's not centred.

Nice Eric. Are you going to have a Players Union also? That would cool too.

Looks Great..Any other colors than black?

My first thoughts were the orange letters made me think of mango before mando. I like orange, and I like both mangos and mandos, but I *think* I would choose another color. I like the "8". Squiggles, plus the inherent squiggles of an F style made me think an A style mandolin would stand out better. I play them both without prejudice. I want a "t" shirt, whatever the final design. I yield completely to your good judgment, Eric.

Here's the design without the squiggles. What do you think? I do like the simplicity of it...

I'll probably just do black for now, then maybe a different color down the road. Since I won't be selling a lot of these shirts initially, I need to stick to one shirt color to production costs as low as possible. That way I can keep the shirt price down, too!

Hopefully at some point this year, yes! Not sure when that will happen, but as long as the site keeps growing and people are using it, the Players Union will happen.

Looks good to me. Maybe odd years for F'style and evens for A's?

Logo is cool the mandolin is too cartoonie (is that a word) LOL

Gerry Cassidy - Posted - 01/20/2011:  12:07:24


Totally dig it!

The cartoonie mando keeps it from being too genre' specific...and it looks pretty cool, actually. But, that's just me.

Build it and I will buy one! :-)

TSSN - Posted - 01/20/2011:  13:32:12


FWIW, I think it's better without the squiggles.

Gerry Cassidy - Posted - 01/21/2011:  12:37:49


I agree. The squiggles can go...

Kevin K - Posted - 01/21/2011:  13:10:13


The without looks good. Also maybe on option with just the text on the left chest front without mandolin image and then the text like you have on the back???

Woodman - Posted - 01/23/2011:  09:36:59


I like it better now, too.

mandodoug - Posted - 01/24/2011:  13:47:48


like the one without squiggles too, I'd buy one

Are you asking if I'll sell your information to other places if you buy a shirt? If so, the answer is absolutely not. Never have, never will.

Gerry Cassidy - Posted - 01/26/2011:  09:47:25


Cool!

I'm off to order me a shirt!
