Hello, I have a few ideas for T-shirts I would like to wear but I don't know the industry very well or how to go about printing them. I prefer subdued styles that are simple with no distracting images or any nonesense like skulls or guns, etc. I think that throws the intellect of the message out the window and makes an offensive T-shirt, especially to those who don't share our views. I like the Hanes Beefy T's w or w/o the pocket. I was thinking about two quotes from the 1700's. Please feel free to add your comments about the relevance of these to our current situation.

The first: "Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants, it is the creed of slaves." - William Pitt

The second: "If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

These are powerful quotes and don't directly attack anyone and I think that anyone that reads them should think about the value of freedom.

I would like to have the quotes across the back and maybe a small symbol of freedom on the front.

Worthwhile idea?

I'd go with the first rather than the latter just due to length of the quote.

Shorter is easier to read on a shirt.

Cafe press can set up an account for you or you can work with a local T-shirt printer.

Very good point. Looks like most outfits have minimum orders. I'll keep working on a design and when I finish it I'll order them and hand them out to friends. Trying to do my part in some small way. I can't afford the trips to the capitol any more.

I was going to have this engraved on the mag well of my AR before I DuraCoated it hot pink and lime green:

"A Tyrant's greatest fear, the Arms of Free Citizens"

Today, I have some hope I can complete that project in New York State.

I really like this:

"Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants, it is the creed of slaves." - William Pitt

Maybe with a Gadsden flag on the front. I'd buy that, especially if proceeds go to a pro 2A charity or foundation.

I'll take one in black with white letters and one in OD with black letters.
