Hello everyone!

I am seriously thinking about having a shirt made based upon the B&W
promotional shot of the band from Paris that was in the May 20th
promotional release, which is up on the WWW page/site.

For those of you who haven't seen it but can access WWW, check it out! For
those of you who can't access WWW, maybe I can send it to you. It shows Pat
and co crowded together wearing some weird shirts that I think they must
have decorated themselves, since they all look to be the same material
but with different (and many!) designs. Funny, silly, and great IMO!
I'm planning on cutting off the right quarter of the picture (approximately)
so that Pat's head is near the top centre.

I've called a couple of places, and one seemed pretty good since they work
with CorelDraw, and so I can bring in the pic on disk without having to
print it on paper, and then add lettering. I was thinking of maybe having
two lines of text, one being "The Jazz Butcher Conspiracy" (what else) at
the top, and then at the bottom either "Waiting For The Love Bus" or (my
first thought) "EXCELLENT!" Consider it my critical response. :) I don't
know what font or text size to use yet. Suggestions about what text to
use, font, and text size would of course be welcome!

Why am I posting this? Well, it would seem that I'm not going to be able
to make just one shirt, and I thought maybe some other people on the list
would be interested too. Another band's mailing list I am on has come
up with a semi-official shirt for the mailing list, but I don't know if
we care about that. Ideally at least ten or eleven people will be
interested in this, since the minimum order is 12. The shirts
are going to be pretty cheap - about $7 Canadian all told, and
the shirts themselves would be good cotton Fruit Of The Loom brand.
[NB I imagine that sweatshirts might be available too, at greater cost.]
I don't know what colours the shirts are available in yet either, I
imagine lots, though I was thinking about going with "classic" white
since the design would be black (though I guess it could be all red,
or green, or whatever, but I think black would probably look best). I
imagine a mixed order of shirt colours is possible.

I guess I should point out that the shirts will cost about $7 Canadian
PLUS packaging and postage, which I hope won't be too much. At the
current exchange rates, I'd guess that's about $5 U.S. or 4 pounds UK plus
p & p. I have enough money that I could make the order before getting
everyone's money, but if I got stuck with 6 shirts because people changed
their minds then I wouldn't be happy.

If you are interested, or might be interested if you could see what
the design looks like when it's all together, or might be interested
if I had details about shirt colours or anything else, please let me
