    T-shirts....

    I'm not sure anyone would be interested but I'm getting some t-shirts made with logos on such as Cisco, Juniper, HP, Linux etc etc just to show support for the vendors as I do alot of work with them. Then I also thought why not put the Edugeek logo on there too either front or back also the username so mine would be "cpjitservices".

    I'll get one made see how much it costs and then if anyone else fancies it I'll get some more made.

    Would anyone be interested or is it just me being a geek ?

    You had me at Linux.

    But, I'd want to see some designs...

    The Edugeek one would be good for BETT.

    I don't know if you've already got a firm in mind for doing the t-shirts but I use a company called Modern Embroidery (Modern Embroidery, Lancashire | Embroidered Workwear, T-Shirts, Polo Shirts, Hoodies, Fleeces) who have been very good to me for bits I've had done and I've seen other bits of their work.

    I already have my own company t-shirts so I probably wouldn't get one, but thought I'd give Chris a plug as he does do a fantastic job!

    Lol wouldn't it be cool to have the caption 'I'm no ordinary geek.. I'm an EDUGEEK'

    Sounds like a cool idea.

    I've got a t-shirt (black with large white lettering) that reads I HATE I.T. - people are always coming up to me asking just what it is I hate.....

    Just playing devils advocate here but are you actually allowed to use the vendors logos in this way?

    Indeed, doing this would be both copyright and trademark infringement unless you have written permission to use them.

    The EduGeek logo, etc are also copyright / trademarked too ... and they have sold stuff in the past and I wouldn't be surprised if it happens again (hint @ZeroHour and @Dos_Box)

    I would check - we had to wait a few days when I asked the Kaviza guys (now Citrix VDI in a box) if I could get a SVG copy of their logo for use in some powerpoint slides I was putting together.

    A few of these companys do (like said before with EduGeek) also make their own stuff every now and again (I have a Microsoft Polo top) and wouldn't be best pleased if you were to take away (even a small amount) of their potential revenue.

    If you are a partner / certified provider you will often find that they give you certain rights to use their logo on clothes, etc ... so it might still be worth asking folk if you can. I know Cisco and CompTIA do it that way ... not sure about others.
