FN Weekend Open Thread - Design FN Swag, Win Prizes

So as many of the regular readers here probably know, OilersNation has a collection of gear, including stickers, hoodies and t-shirts. We want to get something like that going here at FlamesNation, but with a twist - we want FN readers help in designing them.

As you can see from the links, ON gear ranges from cool and clean (hoodies) to comedic (Squee shirts). We'll take both and everything in between if the design works. Feel free to incorporate the FN logo, inside jokes from the site (keep your feet moving) and maybe even prior photoshop contests.

So the floor is wide open. The focus is t-shirts right now with an view to expanding to other stuff down the road, so keep that in mind. The owners A team of highly trained monkeys and FN contributors will determine some finalists and we'll likely put the contest to a vote here on FN to determine a winner*.

Send your entries kent.wilson@gmail.com.

*The winner will get 5 free FN shirts with the winning design on them as soon as they come off the assembly line**. The Nations will give credit to the designer but will own the design in perpetuity from then on. If you enter the contest, you agree to these conditions.

**That's how shirts are made, right?

T-shirt ideas:

#goblairjones

LOOOOOOOB

Barbara Streisand

Duck Sauce (last 2 just for a laugh)

I actually saw a guy wearing an "Oilers Suck" hat last week, so those should DEFINITELY be in mass production. I would love to see around 10 different designs, and would buy them all.

I am no designer, but I'd love to see "Got Loob?" On it. Hahaha. Whatever the shirts are, count me in. Nothing makes me happier than walking around this dump city (Edmonton) wearing a real teams colours

Just to clarify the flaming c goes above the Keep Calm on front in the same size as the lettering.

Could also add to this for the back with personalized Numbers if wanted.

Also like a play on the Intellectual Honesty thing:

either Flames Logo or FN logo = MC^2 + Post Apex Players/ Intellectual Honesty Or just Intellectual Honesty = MC^2

1. May we have a picture of the green men getting absolutely demoralized in some way.

Harvey with a baseball bat beating the snot out of them...

Or like picture of the Green Men being lit on fire with a caption that says "MY ANUS IS FLAMING" (or something like this) on the back: this image provided by: "Flames Nation Logo"

2. Angry Flames Lady Fan Club

3. Just for Dome Beers: Beers, Elbows and CORSI

4. Here's a visual idea for "post apex player" could do one of those hipster equilateral triangles with the hashtag Post Apex Player
