    I'm pretty sure I have a jersey with a full zip that doesn't affect the design.

    That depends on how you design it....
    ...and how you wear it.

    I can kinda envision Mimi's painting (posted on the other jersey design thread) all over the back of a jersey with some kind of continuation or even just a repeat wrapping to the front. Could have short sleeves in blue-with-logo in extension of the sky (which is already predominantly a blue very close to the TE bluelogo color). The sleeves could be plain blue-with-logo or could fade above the logo into a more water-color effect up towards the shoulder seam. And the grassy bit of the painting could be right at the top of the back pockets, especially if Mimi could do a continuation below that with some sort of trail-side vegetation.

    In my mind's eye this is a gorgeous jersey. I'd definitely buy it, but I can't draw it.

    Someone should be able to save the CS2 AI files to a previous version of Illustrator. I couldn't access the files with the provided link though. Is it just me or does the link not work? I just get a blank screen.

    It opens fine for me in Illustrator CS2 and shows the TE logos.

    Spazzdog is in da' house

    Hey y'all! I got Trek420 message... not sure if I'm in on this or not as I'm trying to get a book to press, however I know a fine designer that might want to play.

    I will ask her if she has an interest. Meanwhile, I'll download the templates just in case I get a wild burst of time.

    Good luck everybody!

    p.s. I too like the elastic, so you're not alone.
    no regrets!

    While a design the incorporates the TE color scheme would be nice, it is certainly not a requirement.

    The TE logos can be more of something that is applied to certain locations on the jersey - ie, chest or collar, sleeves, back pocket, etc -- they don't necessarily have to be a prominent part of the design.

    If the design was of a traditional "team" jersey style, the logos would be very prominent (see the Team Terry jersey).

    However, we want to be more creative than that, while still having a jersey that communicates "Team Estrogen", rather than just "that's a pretty jersey".

    [[said with tongue firmly planted in cheek]] You mean I should use your logos instead of the attached "logo"?

    I *LIKE* that! It'd make a great "hidden" pocket message (like the Salt shaker inside the pocket of our Hill Slug jerseys).

    If you use it, you might want to check with one of the chemists on the board to verify that I grabbed the right symbol. We think I did (actually DH is the source), but it could turn out like people who get tatoos of chinese characters only to find out that they don't mean what they think

    I've noticed that jerseys made for men with elastics don't fit me so good, but when they are styled for women, the jersey ends up looking good and staying where it belongs with that elastic on it.

    I vote for hi-viz and no elastic. Is it possible to make both versions - elastic and non-elastic?
