A great place to make all sorts of cool products (shirts, notebooks, even teddy bears) is cafepress.com!  You can make, customize and sell over 80 different products (Maybe we could even ask them if they custom print on diabolos  :lol: ).

Um..Wouldn' that be sorta pointless? Since most of the time the diabolo is spinning and it would just be a blurry mess :P

Do you reckon these t shirts could have like a fake string twinned around the arm, like your setting up for a trick, or around the neck like your just about to do a garrotte, just an idea...

Usernames on the shirts would be cool e.g "guppygould @ Diabolo.ca" on the niple or something similar.

Yep, I think so too. I would feel pretty dumb with my name on a t-shirt that I'm wearing.  :roll:

I have re-read all 8 pages a couple of times and thought things through. Finally getting around to working on this:

A close up of a possible pattern based on the 3 diabolo photo:


a mock-up of what this might look like... front and back debatable:


options:
-different shirt colours -dark blue/green/red/anything else?
-ringer/regular shirts?
-maple leaf/no maple leaf?
-give people the option of choosing different shirt colours or types of shirts or choose one to keep it consistent?
-add something else to the shirt?
-add a splash of red somewhere?
-different font?
---

-Thinking of using http://www.spreadshirt.com/ with its various distributors.
-Plot, flex printing.
-I would like to keep it clean, simple, professional and therefore appealing to the widest possible audience.

---
Things to keep in mind:
-the pattern can't have any small or intricate sections to it
-a more complex pattern will cost more
-more colours costs more
-printing on more than one side costs more

If anyone is interested in contributing to this I can provide a copy of the vector graphics.

Cool shirt!

Ah hmm, the font and everything is great, but maybe add some sort of text under the 3 diabolos like let's say something like"Diabolo, eh?" or something like that. Just noticed that "Diabolo, eh?" sounds very canadian, but that doesnt matter because diabolo.ca is canadian (i think)

What so you think? Text or no text? Whatever you deside, it's going to be an awesome shirt :D

Wow!  I really like that shirt!  I like the idea of a splash of red, maybe just the maple leaf.  And for text, I'm not sure it needs any on the back.  The diabolos say enough on their own.  Sign me up for one of these shirts!

spreadshirt (my shop) allows a lot of flexibility with styles and colours so as all the images are vectors, people can choose which colours they want on their shirt along with different styles, which means more freedom in design so more people will buy them

It also means a range of hoodies etc can be released
