Other less than popular colors are lemon and creme. Sometimes the design overcomes the colors, but mostly those awesome designs get lost due to shirt color. Good luck.



I went with Heather Gray because it looked "Army Issued." The Olive was not Olive drab, and was overpowering the shadow. I have since learned about "Heather Gray" and "Comic Sans" (which I did NOT use).

I think I wanted to make a statement that I could make Heather-frickin'-Gray as sexy as chocolate. It was a risky move & It almost worked, if it wasn't for those medling kids and their dog (Rooby-roo!)! Just showin my new skillz-that-killz.

Thank you for the feedback, I wish I could get more so I can improve! I want to win one of these (and I will, you keep watching, I just have to wait my turn).

much love,

I love the "mis-aligned" color on the clock, it's so retro! Adorable presentation (1,2,3,4,5). Well deserved Best Loser! (It's like kissing your sister)


Congrats,

Cute! Cupcakes definitely aren't just for children. They're so more appealing to me over cake, even if they are made from the same ingredients!

Re: Garlic: Great with butter, bad with vampires

The text and graphic are wery well put together, and a nicely-coordinated color combo. I've been drawn back to look at this a few times, despite not being that into vampires, so that says something about the visual appeal for me;)

Someone need to make a jesture and realize what genius is displayed on this shirt. I live in Texas and I would be a rock star if I wore this shirt to work! We eat Tacos EVERY DAY (and Bacon!)! So, as you guessed, I look like Jabba the Butt.

I hope this gets made...

Sadly, the slogan is for the wikipedia knockoff company/service (not the information). That means it is not a "slogan for an everyday product;" It is a slogan for an everyday service...

Well, I am done. I know... I am not as fun as the others, but there is no point in arguing with someone that is completely committed. At least I give you the option to have the last word though

Also, I made my first comment shortly after I put a load in the wash Weird, no?



I'm sorry, but it seemed like I had to repeat myself since you completely ignored what I'd said before. I don't think that repetition will just make you agree with me, but you were bringing up an old issue which led me to believe that you had not read any of the past discussion.

How can you be sure that it is advertizing Wikipedia? From my perspective, the shirt is advertizing the information as the product being received.

Looks like it might get quiet in here since you seem like you won't respond...

Re: Raisins Ruin Everything



Nice design, unambiguous message. Good luck.

However... has anyone else noticed that the people who don't seem to be able to tell the difference visually between a raisin cookie and a chocolate chip cookie are all raisin haters? I suggest their lowered mental skills in this area are due to the lack of raisins in their diet.

Many years ago I worked in an office that had a candy dish on the receptionist's desk. The dish was emptied several times a day by the employees, at which point it would be refilled with a random selection from many types of candy. One day I grabbed a handful of Skittles and dropped them into my shirt pocket, then went on about my day. Every few minutes I'd toss a Skittle into my mouth without thinking much about it. Eventually I hit one that was so foul that I almost spit it out in front of my coworkers. Turns out it was a stray M&M that was left in the dish from earlier in the day, and it was stealthily hiding amongst the Skittles. I actually like M&M's, but when you're expecting a Skittle and you get chocolate, it's revolting. (The totally wrong texture didn't help, either...instead of a waxy, hard-to-chew substance, the M&M cracked like an egg and flooded my mouth with creamy chocolate.)

Which brings me to my point: When you think you're putting one thing into your mouth and you get something else, it's a huge shock. You don't know what it is that you just ate, because your brain is focused on tasting one thing and then it gets something else. Yuck! And the more times you've expected chocolate and gotten raisins, the larger the aversion you would have to raisins. No wonder these people are protesting for raisins to be outlawed!

However, I do have to wonder why these raisin-haters can't distinguish the difference between a raisin and a chocolate chip. I may have been fooled by a stray M&M in a bowl of Skittles (though to be fair I never even really looked at what I was munching on), but I've never once been suckered into eating a raisin cookie thinking that it was a chocolate chip cookie; chocolate chips just do not look like raisins. Especially after having been burned countless times, apparently (as is evidenced by their rabid revulsion to raisin cookies), shouldn't some sort of self-preservation system in the brain kick in when they see a chocolate chip cookie? Shouldn't there be some intense scrutiny before they take a bite?

My theory is that these people are amongst the most extreme of chocoholics, and that their intense cacao addiction sends their brain into such a tizzy at the sight of a bespeckled cookie that it simply can't process any further visual input. While the rest of us can glance at the cookie and easily determine the not-so-secret ingredient, their sudden euphoria at scoring a fix prevents them from doing so. 0.3 seconds later, the cookie has entered their mouth...and what happens next isn't very pretty.

Of course, it's just a working theory; I haven't actually acquired the funding to conduct a double-blind study yet. Nor have I figured out how to lure this group of people into said study. I'm afraid that mentioning the word "raisin" would be a deal-breaker, and I'm worried about the ethics of not mentioning the word. I'm also quite worried about my safety.

In any case, here's hoping that this shirt will print so that these poor afflicted individuals can buy one. Perhaps seeing the slogan often enough will reprogram their synaptic responses just enough that they can avoid these unfortunate incidents. Or maybe the design will educate those around them of their plight, so that they might take pity and let them know that "hey, those are raisins." Of course, it might also lead to people putting out plates of raisin cookies in a twisted effort to get some great video for YouTube. After all, some people are just sociopaths.

I think that you either like raisins or you don't. "Raisins Ruin Everything" isn't going to change your mind, but it will sure get people talking about raisins. (Just look at this thread for proof.) There's no such thing as bad publicity, they say.

Would the Raisin Council (there must be one, right?) ever use this slogan? No...they don't have the guts. However, I think it would be a great slogan for that type of a product. Most people would laugh out loud when they saw it, and then they'd be thinking about raisins. Perhaps they could alternate it with a positive slogan in an advertising campaign, so you never knew which slogan they were going to use until the end of the commercial. I like it.

Alternatively, who says that this is the slogan for raisins? Maybe it's the slogan for chocolate chips! Of course, I'm sure that the Raisin Anti-Defamation Council would have some things to say about that.
