I might be interested in this, but the font/layout is not very good, and all the suggested phrases have been really cheesy so far. They're not particularly clever, and don't convey why speedcubing is interesting.

"WHEN SIMPLY SOLVING THE CUBE IS NOT ENOUGH" might be okay.
Maybe more of a statement of lifestyle: "SPEEDCUBING – ALL DAY, ALL NIGHT" (Twistin' the night away? :p )

Maybe ask around; I know a bunch of cube clubs have made clever shirts before.

At around the chest area I can get the WCA logo, but where to put scrambled cube and speedsolving.com?
Might want to ask the Board before implying any direct association with the WCA.

Yeah, Please do so :) And I know that putting the logo will be copyright so I didnt include it till now. I will make a preview for "SPEEDCUBING – ALL DAY, ALL NIGHT"

I like the "Speedcubing, When simply solving..." but it would probably look better if the bottom text was't inverted
I will have a preview up soon.

Yo, I know someone in graphic design. Should
I ask her if she has any ideas?
That would be helpful :D

I just meant the site you're using for all the design previews you've posted here.
That is just a template I got from this friend.

Also, A Harry Potter fan gave me this idea.
Text 1 "Have you seen"
Image: 3x3 cube, pyraminx, square 1, skewb, megamins, mirror blocks, 4x4 cube, megaminx and other puzzles (As much as I can include in provided space)
Text 2 "my Horcruxes"
The text will be in Harry Potter font. What do you thing guys?

If you try that, only put seven puzzles there, since there are seven horcruxes. It would make more sense.

This stuff is way over my head.

I do think the current layout you have is quite nice. It looks less cartoony than the original. I do like the text that Lucas suggested. He makes a good point that the text should say something that actually shows the interest.

I've got no suggestions, though. Maybe, "Speedcubing. When fast isn't enough." I suck at this.

IMHO... the slogans are embarrassingly cheesy and the design too simple and a bit tacky.

I think if you guys are gonna invest in getting a T-Shirt made in bulk.. you should get a designer to come up with something awesome.

If I have time I may run off some ideas for you.

I think the back should be plain/maybe have writing on (WCA ID is a good idea if it can be customised)

I'd just have 'Speedsolving' on the front.

Simple and effective.

Not cheesy, but if it's gonna be a speedsolving shirt, why put anything else?

I was also thinking of something simple and came up with this ^_^
@STOCKY7, I will make yours in some hours. I was thinking what I should put for bottom text?

I really like the design. I think the front is ace. Simple and really nice. No point in trying to over complicate the shirt... It'll just look stupid.
Did I say anything about overcomplicating it? I just said get something designed properly so that it doesn't look like you bought it from some eBay shop customizing T-Shirts for stag parties :p

Suit yourselves, but I've been thinking about producing a generic cubing shirt for a while, so will probably do this and sell it myself.

All of my competition/UKCA designs from the past have been received very well so I'm confident I can come up with something sweet and simple. Yet not complicated ;)

Yes sir go for it. Maybe I can get some inspiration from your shirts :) Do you have any past designs that you can show me?

Sorry Billy, my comment wasn't aimed at you man. I just posted my opinion without reading the other comments.

Good luck with designing the t-shirt.

I'll see you at Cuthberts : )
