Janne Pesonen Shirt....part 1...

Front:
Back:

So this is just an initial idea I had about the shirt, wanted any and all feedback. Whenever we goto sell them they will be probably around $20 so we are able to gain a profit to donate to a charity that we as the pesonation will vote on. Since we are donating all the money to charity we will need to sell as many of these shirts as possible (the more we sell the smaller the cost of printing, i looked at 50 shirts they will cost around $11 if we somehow get to 100 they will cost $8). Anyways, we probably won't be gettin ready to sell these for some time now, just wanted to put this out there and see what everybody thought. I would appreciate any other bloggers reading this to pass it around to their readers and see what kind of interest we can get.

I will be linking to this post on the side bar at the top for easy access... Party on Pesonation

PS if you are wondering about the shirt...Team Finland Hockey...and the text reads Janne's Finnish Army

Hi Jere - I have already informed Vince about this. And I think maybe "Jannen Suomalaiset Sotajoukot" could be better text instead of "Jannen Suomalainen Armeija". Let's wait first that Vince wakes up :)

COOL! I'm sure you guys won't have a problem selling them (it's possible you could get to 100)!!

I'll try to post the info soon.

I have a small suggestion -- since others may be wondering what the shirt says, would you consider putting "Janne's Finnish Army" in parenthesis in a smaller font?

Just a suggestion - it was just one of my first thoughts after seeing the shirt and reading your post.

I think that would look weird and cluttered, i kinda like the obscurity and it could be used as a vehicle to open up dialogue about Janne...

"Hey What does that mean"
"Janne's Finnish Army"
"Janne?"
"Janne Pesonen...i'll tell you all about how awesome he is...."

Get 'em made. I'll place my order immediately.

Is that text under the Pesonation emblem necessary at all. In my opinion it would look the most cool without it. Then I definitely would buy and wear it in local Kärpät matches!

Vince said...

yeah, i think i kinda agree with that... i was thinking of having just say Janne under it, like the finnish ones say SUOMI under them...

I'd get one -- they're super awesome. :)
