I love #2, but Could you reverse them, maybe? It's kind of chilly here on BF and I will probably be wearing at least a jacket, so no one would see the back.

He did. He's using Livestream instead of UStream for the webcasts this year. So the back of #1 is accurate.


lol. thanks, any stream is all the same to those who are not paying FULL attention

What about the front of #3 and the back of #1? I think it might look better if you add '.com' on the end of GottaDeal so people know what you are referring to when looking at the back. Also, the front GottaDeal.com should match your actual logo (I think it would look better). One idea I had was similar to #3, only it said 'Black Friday University' or another idea would be 'BJS University', lol.

I like #2 a lot and I'm not a baseball fan but the style just rings as something I would wear all year long. I agree with the bigger sizes (3X-4X) I am a big guy (especially shoulder area) and tend to wear them a little baggy. I'm even down with the color. Now I have to hope for them to be on sale here as I normally don't win and I also want one for my wife when we go shopping.

the back design #2 as a front, and the front design of #1 as a back but any are great!!! i love


I really like #2


Any way we could turn the caution sign in #1's blue shirt to a diamond shape, like the street caution signs? The square just doesn't do it for me.


love both #1 and #2, but I think the front of #2 and use the front of #1 on the back with a triangle caution sign.

people are gonna see more of the back of the shirt than they will the front.

I like #1 and #2 with orange shirt. I believe I like #2 better though.

I don't like #3 at all. I just don't like the Full Contact Shopping slogan. Just my opinion though.


This! My thoughts exactly.

I like #1 and #2 is okay either color is good but orange is different so I think that would be cool. I don't care for #3.

Like someone else said, I like the front of #1 and the caution from #2 as the back. If you're doing Black Friday right, most will see the back of your shirt...since they'll be behind you in line. ;)

OK, so it sounds like a lot of people either: like #2 as it is or with the colors reversed or would like the front to be in the style of #2 and have the caution sign on the back (possibly as a diamond shape) #3 doesn't seem to be as popular so I'm going to eliminate that one for now. The "word cloud" on the back of #2 was something I thought could be clever, but a lot of you disagree. The words were automatically generated by looking at the site/forum and getting the most often used non-common words. I'm thinking I might save that idea for a non-BF "GottaDeal 10th Anniversary" shirt that we could do next year - have a bunch of words/phrases related to the site that those who've been around for a long time will "get". I'm going to post a poll thread with some choices...

OK, here are 8 possible options based on your responses from the last thread.

The first 4 are orange shirts/blue ink, the second 4 are the same designs but with a blue shirt/orange ink.

The poll will let you vote for more than one design, so if you'd be happy with more than one, vote for more than one.

Feel free to continue using this thread for comments as I'll close the old thread now.

Here are the options:

i love the caution sign on the blue, dont like it on the orange, if the orange had the caution sign part in blue color with orange lettering it might look better

I picked 1, 4, and 8, but I like 4 the best. I really like the orange shirts better. I know blue has been the past shirts, but something doesn't feel right about them. I'd also like to point out that #3 and #7 doesn't even show the website name, so I'm not a fan of them. I know the little logo is in the cart, but people may not know what it refers to.

Yeah if either of those designs was the overwhelming favorite, I'd probably alter the design a little to mention GD somewhere.

I still might play around with the final design. I might add white ink accents, especially if I decide to throw a QR code on the sleeve or somewhere else.

Love the idea of the QR code, especially having it on the sleeve! That way I can see when someone scans it, rather than them sneaking up from behind and making me jumpy!:gdparanoid:

I'm going with #8. The blue with the orange text and caution sign really stand out and it states the web site, not just Black Friday. I'd suggest throwing a QR code on the back, like under the caution sign, since that's where most people in line will be seeing the t-shirt anyways :P
