    OK, guys, now that we're all but official, I'd like to try and get the word out about the chapter, so I'm working on a revamped flyer.

    We also discussed the possibility of T-shirts at the meeting, and I threw these together (I'll post them on the website later):

    Of course, for you Impies, we can do the ones with the Imp symbol, as well.

    Also, what ideas do you guys have? Business cards have been brought up, as well as ads in some of the free ad papers around here. Anything else?

    Yeah, post all the color and logo combos on the website, we have plenty of room there!

    Yep, I'll make a couple of color variations and do that. :)

    OK, so, there's a couple I go to church with that makes T-shirts. They're good quality, and she said she can make a test shirt for me.

    So, the question is: what color? She said she could make a shirt on white or gray. I don't know about black yet, but I'll see what I can do.

    Anyway, I've posted the basic graphics on the website. They're big, so they may take a while to load for you modem people like me.

    I can always colorize the graphics and change them to virtually any shade. And, yes, I'll make a graphic with the Imp version, too. Whaddaya think?

    I think black would be the best color for the T-Shirts, or maybe even navy blue. But if the choices are only white or gray my vote goes for GRAY... (I hate white T's).

    Id have to pretty much second everything fettish said there. Hate white, prefer darker blue or black or dark green in a pinch.

    OK, no white, then. I asked her, and she said they can't do dark colors with their equipment. :(

    So I'll get a test shirt made up gray and we'll see how it looks. She said the shirts will probably be about $12. If we decide against it, we can always try somewhere else.

    OK, I hate to say it, but the shirts don't look good. I'll tell you that right now. That ash gray is not becoming. . .

    On the other hand. . .

    I found a place on the web that does T-shirts. We can choose any color we want, but all the T's have to be 1 style, so either Imp symbol or Republic symbol. Also, we can get multiple shades of shirts, but the logos all have to be the same color.

    Anyway, here's a couple of example pics. I just used orange on black for the pics. I can change the colors to whatever you want, and replace the pics with new ones anytime.

    The only other problem with this is if we order in small quantities, we get charged more. If we order 12, they're $14 each (which may change, depending on sizes wanted), with free shipping, which isn't bad, but I'm concerned about whether we can sell them or not.

    Anyway, it's all up to you guys. What do you think?

    Well, I would be happy to pay more for a T-Shirt that I would actually wear and feel comfortable in. I like the black...

    Well, I looked on their website some more, and color variations don't seem to be a problem. I'll have to call in the order instead of doing it online, but we can get a minimum of 6 shirts per color combo without the price increasing. So, start coming up with color combos, and I'll make pics for them.

    Also, we need to decide. . . Imperial or Republic? Or I have a new idea. You'll like this, Fettish. . .

    I like the blue print on black. Very "galactic"... I think it looks good the way it is...

    BTW - thanks for the effort with the Fett design... ;)

    OK, I'm going to take an official vote on the T-shirts at the next meeting, so everyone needs to make up their minds as to the logo/color scheme by then, and we'll decide on it. If you can't be there, but you still want to vote, you can PM me with a proxy.
