Hello Hello!!

Bono's "One" Shirt @ 11:48 am

evieangelique:
I'm currently feelin: accomplished

Evidently I have far too much spare time on my hands. But damn, I really freaking wanted this shirt:



Problem is, it doesn't look like these are shirts that are going to be sold by the One Campaign (and the logo looks a little like the DATA one, so I get the feeling that this may have been a customised shirt for Bono.)

So, I did it myself.



Click for Hi-Res

I made the base picture fairly large so that you can resize at will. I prefer the black, but the white's easier because 1) you can't get iron-ons with white ink and 2) if you want to get it screenprinted, it's a hell of a lot cheaper to do it onto a white shirt. That being said, I also did a version that can go on a black shirt (similar to what Bono's got going on there).

If you want a shirt with this on it, feel free to take the images and use them to make your own. I don't have the resources to make batches of shirts, so if someone wants to organise that, go right ahead. Heh.

Please don't spread round the base images that I've provided - it took me way too long to do this shit. Please link back to this post instead. Also, no hotlinking. Thank you.

I love 'em. Gorgeous. When I was watching Live 8 I kept saying how I loved his shirt and wanted it to. Thanks so much for providing these :D

i hope you don't mind, but i love screen printing, and i'm doing an independant study with my graphics teacher this fall, so i will probably use this to make prints from, i'm not going to take credit for it, just that i cut the screen and the laquer (however you spell it) film, etc. etc. i just want to make my own shirt from it, heh.

Thanks! I was planning on rewatching the Live 8 clip to try and get a better look at his shirt (I couldn't really see what it was the first time). But now I don't have to.

Awesome work, by the way.

I don't know if there are copyright issues involved in using the logo, and as Cafepress is usually rather strict about it I'm not sure if I should try. Heh. But I'll have a look. Thanks. :)

Wow.  I've been looking all over the place for the clearest pictures I could find of his shirt as I have a project planned and wanted to use the design.  This is absolutely fabulous!  Thank you so, so, SO much. =D

Yeah, I wanted it so bad myself and I'd have been willing to pay for it if it were made officially, but you know, if you want something done, do it yourself and all that. Hee. I'm glad you like it.

I don't think you can use the black one for an iron-on as it would require white ink. Heh. So if you're doing iron-ons your only option is the white, I'm afraid.

Most iron-on kits come with instructions for printing/software and stuff. I'm not sure what you've got access to but I'm pretty sure they'd have a guide as to what to do.

Oh it's times like these when I love my job! I work in a screen printing place (well I work in the office, so yeah) ANYWAY! I could get a quote and find out a price. I know the minimum is 125 pieces, but the logo can go on anything, and if people want one maybe we could all chip in and pay for the price? I could also see if one of the artists could do a few shirt for me as well. Just let mw know what you guys think.

That would be absolutely wonderful, if you could get something together like that.

That is fantastic. I think I'm going to try to make myself a shirt like that to wear when I see them live next week ^_^

Only one question: what kind of font did you use to write "One"?

Wow! These are GREAT. After watching live8 I was thinking the same thing.....I WANT THAT SHIRT.

If surfgirl83 makes some prints, I'll definitely be getting one....if not, i'm rushing over to my local screen-printing shop.

Cool, I'm trying to find out if I could get a smaller amount then the normal minimum of 125, I don't think we'd need that many. Maybe like two dozen or something. I'll keep you updated on my journal, which is FO but I'll add you in a few.
