    There has been some discussion of making a YJN Hockey Jersey to go along with our t-shirts. This can be a place to discuss that idea further. Here are my initial designs for a jersey.

    Thats is in the style of the Chiefs from the movie Slapshot.
    I will also make on in the style of the old Buffalo Sabres jersey:

    Any suggestions for others designs?

    I'd also like to try some sort of picture-logo, rather than the words "Young Jedi Niagara". Any ideas of something I could design? Its tough to design something that incoporates the Star Wars universe and something that represents the Niagara Region. The YJN FanForce icon is pretty good, but I'd liket do something new. Please post some ideas if you have any.

    They look very cool, I can't wait.

    My input...
    - I like the first white jersy, but change the black strip to a blue (just to see)
    - Move our "worded" logo (w/www.) to a shoulder
    - Put a FanForce logo (w/www.) on the other shoulder
    - I think the YJN icon would look good on the front (I like the icon we have now, but if others want to try something sure)
    - I also like the idea of putting our FanForce "user names" on the back

    Black strip? I changed it all to blue? Must be your old eyes.

    Move our "worded" logo (w/www.) to a shoulder...Put a FanForce logo (w/www.) on the other shoulder
    I'll try that but it might be a bit crowded with the www and .com on it, plus both of them are words so it might be tough to read

    I think the YJN icon would look good on the front (I like the icon we have now, but if others want to try something sure)
    Yes, exactly. I really really would like to see some ideas out there that the members have.

    I'll post one soon with the suggestions you made.

    Sorry Graeme

    My computer at home makes it look Black. I'm at work now and you are correct, it is blue.

    Ok here it is, I didn't include the www. and .com on the YJN logo simply because it would be impossible to read on that image.

    I have a few ideas but first I need to know a few things.

    First off how many colours can we have? The current YJN logo/icon is a full colour thing, and that may not be possible to re-create? Can we look into that? If we can only use say 4 colours thats a design limitation we need to know.

    Secondly, has anyone asked yet about costs? What is the extra cost for adding names to the backs? If the shirts are going to run, oh say $40/piece say, that may limit who will want to get one. What are the minimum numbers we need to make as well?

    I like the idea, its just I think we need to know what limitations we have first before going through the work of designing it up.

    The logo isnt really full colour, its 2 - blue and yellow. I just added some slight gradient for effect.

    Sewn-on letters usually go for a few bucks a letter.
    What do you mean by minumum numbers?

    Chris, have you checked into any places to see the prices? Might wanna do that soon so we can know what colour schemes are available.

    Why not put the www.com at the back under the number, maybe on a stripe?

    Being very long could work...

    Looks cool Graeme :)

    Have you thought Embroidery vs. Silk Screen?

    Look forward to seeing them :)

    I want embroidery, it looks much much better. Of course price is always a factor in this, so we will have to see.

    Sorry Graeme, I think Chris meant the icon we have here, and on the website. that is full colour and may not be reproducible.

    What I meant by numbers is how many shirts do we need to order at a minimum, and how does the cost per shirt break down?

    Oh, I thought you were referring to the numbers on the back of the jerseys.

    I would imagine the cost would break down a bit, but we must find out soon.

    Actually the Blue and Yellow are a two colour job...it CAN be 4, or can be a 2 spot colour job.

    If you get the logos embroidered, you don't have to worry though, nor for silk screen.

    You only have to worry about process colour in print.

    :)

    Graeme if you like I can nose around up here too :)

    If we go with silk screening it will be cheaper.
    Our club colours have always been Blue and Yellow. I do not think we need to be adding colours, simply because extra colours means extra cost. (Note - I am only thinking of our "worded" logo for this. For the front "icon" I can see a 3rd colour if needed. That is why I think we should go with Johns icon.)

    I do want to see the WWW.COM on the "worded" logo for the shoulder (remember we are advertising the club). I know it would not show in the picture but for the RL jersy it should be seen just fine.

    Edit...

    If we are selecting numbers I reserve 99 for Debby, because she loves "The Great One". :p

    I also reserve a number for myself...but I wont post it. ;)

    I think for the Blue Jersy's you should either make the words Young Jedi Niagara either yellow or white. It may look off, but it will be much more readable than a blue on blue.

    That is why I think we should go with the "white" jersy.

    Think it might work on the back?

    I would prefer not to have the name there.
    Plus, it is an added cost.

    Graeme, can you try one with Johns icon. I'd like to get an idea of how that would look.

    I basically did John's logo in those last ones, but changed the colours to match it.
