Our Oriental merchants have acquired sufficient murex shell from the seas of the Turkish Empire to dye our wares the royal color: Purple. Huzzay and huzzah for the Shirt.Woot Emperor's largess, that we commonfolk should wear this rarefied tint! 

Just to be clear: These designs will run on American Apparel purple blank shirts -- the designs themselves should not be purple (though that could be kinda cool, maybe?). So convince your Grimace-looking friend to model, and show us what you can do with the royal hue.

Not sure what purple looks like? Here's a swatch of our tee color:

A bit of internet research reveals that purple is a mixture of red and blue that tends towards the redder side of the mix, while violet is closer to blue. Even further down is indigo. Violet is a real color from the visible spectrum, purple is created by mixing colors.

Wootbot, the color you provided looks to be a bit closer to blue on the color picker....

I own one purple baseball jacket, my high school color! A purple tee will make a nice addition to my wardrobe.

You guys are all so talented and wonderful, I'm really excited to see whatever food, animals or robots you come up with. I'm probably going to end up spending way too much on tees next weekend!

Quick question- I was reworking this Tesla thing I did a while back. Does Woot have a problem with the use/referencing of Public Domain images?

I can't draw to save my life, but I have an idea for someone who can:

A One-Eyed Purple People Eater

I'd love to see what you talented folk can come up with.

Made my first round of votes, and all of them went to those that took advantage of the eggplant color, whether in use as an extra or as a complementary color. It's not every week in which we have purple to work with, so make the best of it. A design that could've worked equally as well or better IMHO on another shirt color ... no vote.

I am so happy about this. I hope purple is added to the repertoire permanently. Purple is the best.
