I can't be the only person that would give good money for a t-shirt with the Beyond Valor box art on it? Seems like an obvious thing for MMP to sell. Or does their license with Hasbro prohibit that?

I have to assume that the Hasbro license is why we don't see them on the website for sale. Seems like a bit of a no-brainer in terms of cashflow

Maybe if Ken Smith were to do an updated version of the BV box art, I might consider such a T-shirt. Beauty being in the eye of the beholder of course.

I'll admit I have never been a fan of the 'loud' T-Shirt (big panel pic on front or back). Just an embroidered ASL crest on the left breast would be fine. Earth tones (forest green, brown, black) would be best. I've seen orange T-shirts in the past (Panzer Blitz I think it was),...very hard on the eyes.

Put the crest on a polo shirt with the option to add an embroidered abbreviated module name* (ie: WoA, FKaC, BV, OoB, DB) on the right sleeve cuff or right breast and I would purchase more than one.

*Shorter full names for modules such as Yanks or Rising Sun would work as well.

Still have my and Deborah's Squad Leader t-shirts, a bit threadbare and doesn't fit as well as they did in '82.

Always liked the Oktoberfest '88 t-shirt, an 88.

Stopped wearing T-shirts shortly before my beer belly grew larger then my hips, but I've dropped 180 lb. since then for health, not quite back to seeing abs yet, but I remember where they were, so maybe a T.
Well done you!!

Color copy places will do one-off t-shirts using custom artwork. If they balk at copyrighted material (even though it is for personal use) you can go to Staples and buy iron-on transfer paper. You're restricted to 8.5" x 11" (the size that will fit into your desktop printer) but you are unlimited in what you can put on it. I've used them, and the ink stands up to the laundry.

Dead easy to use - print out and then iron on. I believe the ones pictured are specifically for cotton t-shirts, but Avery also has iron-on transfer paper intended for heavier materials (like a golf or polo shirt per @The Purist).

Well I don't own an inkjet printer but I might look into seeing if there is someone local that can do one-off shirts

Staples does. If you're near Shawnessy there used to be a copy place by the Co-Op and the registry that did it as well - I had a t-shirt made up there a few years ago. I am sure there are little places all around the city. Some of the engraving and trophy places may be able to do it as well.

Digital Post is the place I am thinking of. I've used them in past. Looks like you can place an order for a t-shirt right online.

London Drugs probably does it as well.

Staples does.
I refuse to use Staples. A few years ago they refused to print out some educational cards from a kids TV show because I wasn't the copyright owner. Got attitude from some 18 year old about IP law.
