Design a sweet T-shirt and become a legend at the same time.
T-Shirts! Get Your T-Shirts!
Ir’s time to make some Hornets themed T-shirts, and since you all are the coolest and most enlightened Hornets fans I know, I decided to leave the designs up to you!
If you win, you'll be sitting pretty for a Hornets game wearing one of the three free shirts you received for coming up with the sweetest design. Plus you get the eternal glory as the guy who designed that awesome t-shirt that everyone wears.
You can send as many designs as you want, but it's better to send two good ones than 20 crappy ones.
The design must specify a shirt color, and if you want, a brand. In addition to the shirt color, you can use up to two colors of ink on the front. If you want to include a design for the back of the shirt as well, please limit the back to only one color.
Shirts cannot infringe on trademarks held by the Hornets/NBA. They can’t say New Orleans Hornets in full. Try not to use the same color combination that the Hornets use. They cannot use players’ full names (can’t say Gustavo Ayon, buy can say Ayon). They can’t use any of the Hornets logos. It’s unclear what exactly we can and can’t do past that, but use your best judgment. Look at the Thunder shirts on Tree And Leaf and you’ll get a better idea of what is OK and what isn’t. There is a fine line, for sure. Try really hard not to cross it.
I will do this at least a few times per year from here on out, but for this specific contest designs must be submitted by Sunday, January 29th at 11:59 PM CENTRAL TIME. Yeah, I said central time.
Initially shirt designs will be narrowed down by myself and a few others. After that, we’ll take the survivors back you you all for a vote to see what gets made. In all likelihood there will actually be two or three designs made into shirts, but there’s only a guarantee of one this time around.
If your shirt design gets made into a shirt, I’ll send you three free shirts. Also, you'll get a pair of tickets to a Hornets game of your choice OR something from my collection of random Hornets memorabilia taking up my precious closet space. I actually have Christmas ornaments and a wreath signed by almost every player and coach on the 2007-2008 team, so there are some cool things you could get.
Submit designs to JoeKnowsSports@Gmail.com Again, that’s Joe Knows Sports at gmail dot com.
If you have any questions, throw them up here and I'll hopefully get an answer to you shortly.

Hanes shirts suck....
"I'm in" if you switch it to American Apparel shirts.
Ok fine, it's changed. You choose your t-shirt, and I'll do the best I can to use that one.
If your looking to clear space in your closet you can just donate your Hornets items to me...

I wish I had more time for this, I might see if I can play around with it, I have an idea! Lol.
Say you wanted to put NOLA or New Orleans on the shirt... would using a similar font be infringement?
The shirt shouldn't look like the Hornets made it. I'd avoid using the same font. Similar is probably fine.
What about using a picture of a hornet player on the shirt? Would that be acceptable as long as it doesn't say "New Orleans Hornets" or have NBA logo anywhere on it? For example, would a line drawing of Jarrett Jack be OK? That's not my idea but is using the "likeness" of a player OK?
Hey, no picture, but a silhouette should be fine. A line drawing should also be fine, provided it's not incredibly detailed. A caricature, for example, is totally cool (as far as I know).
Btw- Ayon has been killing the best player contest of late.
The most clever Ayon shirt will almost certainly get made, even if it isn't chosen best overall.
I'm too lazy to design.
¿dónde están mis minutos?

Good ones have been submitted for Eric Gordon, Jarrett Jack, and Jason Smith.
Today's the last day for submissions for the first of many t-shirt design contests. Reminder!
So what designs won the contest? I had some good ideas for this contest but didn't have the time to put anything together by the deadline. You should consider giving a little more time before the deadline for the next contest.
Yeah, when will we find out the winner? I'm looking forward to buying one.
Sorry, I'll have a post up about it tomorrow. I've been swamped the past few weeks and this bot put on the back burner.
Is there a place to view all the submissions?
Yes, I'm very interested in seeing the submissions. I'd imagine a link will be provided tomorrow?
