crossfit shirts

i created a crossfit image in photoshop with a spartan theme (given 300)
and was wondering if setting a cafepress.com account up, with no profit made would be a big deal to coach. here are the images and tell me what you think.

Re: crossfit shirts

Jason;

Unless you're a CF Affiliate, HQ might/will take a "dim" view of anyone using the CF name or logo, so I suggest you contact HQ, as I'd hate to see a CF Ninja show up(though you wouldn't see them) at your place one very early morning.

Re: crossfit shirts

haha roger that. i was just wondering if "crossfit" was a registered trademark. i wouldnt see what the problem would be with printing shirts up if no one was making any money off them, but i know some peoples panties get twisted pretty easy

Re: crossfit shirts

Email, and don't be surprised if response is slow.
Have you searched the CF boards for this topic. It's come up numerous times.
Most affiliates have very cool shirts, not sure why you want to design one and with the Spartan 300 theme, as that relates to Gym Jones, a former CF'r.

Re: crossfit shirts

c... i'll look into some of the affiliates shirts. i just noticed most of them say where they are from. and the generic CF shirts in the store here are kind of boring.

Re: crossfit shirts

Jason - designs like that will be hard to reproduce on a shirt.
It's hard to distinguish what it is even in a picture, on the shirt it'll be worse.

If I'll have time I'll draw up something.
Photoshop is cool, yet Illustrator will work even better for that.

The "Got snatch" shirt will be pretty easy to design (the snatch silouette).

Give me a week.

Re: crossfit shirts

Here's a few questions to ask yourself when choosing a logo/graphic image:

Does it still look good when you squint really hard?
Is it scalable in size: Would you chose this for a really small project? Would you still like it if it was billboard size?
Does it work on any backgrounds or does it only work on certain backgrounds (dark/light/colored etc.)
Does it require high resolution printing?
Does it lose all meaning when printed in monochrome or with less than two or three colors?

If the answer to any of these is "no" then keep looking, even if it's for a specific one-time project. If the logo requires full color, starts to remind people of a picture of dog poo or a Rorschach inkblot test when it's anything smaller than 8"x8", and only works on green backgrounds, then it's a loser.
