Shirt, version 2


I hope everyone had a nice, relaxing Easter.

Here is the second version of our shirt. Please note the changes:

Saying on the back changed, team names in all caps, 'oh mama' added to shirt front of running momma (I thought that would be a subtle touch, but am not married to it), names added around border (will wait to totally finalize that one), and pink toned down a bit.

Now for the good stuff... more opinions. Compare the two. What are you thinking? It is a little cramped, but hey, we are 24. What do you think of the two pinks? Would you prefer to change it to blue?

Lastly, be thinking of your size and what you want to order: long sleeve and/or short sleeve. Shirts are Hanes Beefy-Ts. They are unisex. I usually am a small in most store things, but like to have a bit more room with T-shirts, so I like mediums. They do shrink a bit, but not too much.

Once I know everyone's vote on the shirt, I'll get prices and sizes. We'll do one final proof once we get some more input.

Thanks!

I don't think it is too cramped. I actually really like it. I love the pink (either one), and I would prefer not to change it to blue (but of course I'll go with whatever). I feel like pink is "appropriate" being that we are uniting as women and mothers for this race. It kindof shows our femininity. Just my thoughts. The only thing I don't absolutely love is the "oh mama" added to the runner's shirt. I actually like the idea, but from the picture it looks like it doesn't fit right on the shirt--like it's after the fact. Maybe on a bigger picture it would look better to me. That is my only critique, but I love it anyway. Thanks again for doing this.

I think it looks terrific! I'm not usually a lover of pink but I agree it's an appropriate color and suits the purpose perfectly.

What about putting the "Oh Mama!" on the FRONT of the shirt? Maybe in a matching blue font curved over (or under) the pink oval? Seems like the front of the shirt could have just a little more "something" added to it to balance with the great design on the back.

Even if not another single change is made, I love it. I'll take a long-sleeve in a medium, please. :-)

I like it! I also think that the Oh mama! is kind of small to be appreciated, maybe we can put it somewhere else, no biggie. I feel bad telling you to change anything when you are probably putting a lot of time and effort into it. Thank you so much for doing this. You rock!

changes are easy ladies... so don't worry about that! what we need are happy runners... also, keep a lookout in your inbox. erin has forwarded everyone a .pdf of the shirt so you can check the spelling of your name. let's keep those comments coming!

Could a sleeve design be but on this shirt? The 'Oh Mama' would be cool on the sleeve.

Wow, nice work. I like it just how it is, but the other comments are good too. I am so impressed. Cute font, I love the yellow highlights in the design. I just wish I looked like that running girl. :) Can that be incorporated somehow? No? Oh, well.

Polliwog said...

Oh, and I thought Roxann was out but I see her name on here. ? Just thought I'd point it out in case it was an oversight.

Sorry to keep commenting, but we are also missing a runner, probably the 12th from the Energizer team. Erin or Mandy has her name, I believe.

I love Kristyn's suggestion to put "Oh Mama!" on the sleeves. If not that, maybe "Wasatch Back 2009" or something else. I think wording on sleeves just looks cool.

I love it!

Can I be Amy P. and not just Amy? Then we can distinguish between Amy H. and Amy P. Thanks! It all looks good.

I like it! And I like the idea of having the writing on the sleeve. That would be fantastic! Thanks for working on this...
