I can't wait to see the final product. I'm an art buff and major in advertising so these sort of creations warm my heart. Did you use photoshop for this? I love the burned in RR. I was going to do a similar thing on a metal shield but my skillz will never match the seamlessness (which is a word as of now) of that.

Yea Del and I have discussed this idea. Having a general design and then allowing guildies to choose their own color options for the shirt and whatnot. While the polo idea is definitely a cool one, they are much more expensive to mass produce than normal tees. From past experience making shirts for my old band throughout high school and college, it can get extremely expensive the more colors you use on the shirt as well as what type of shirts you want stuff printed on. We will have more info to come about what will be realistically doable and go from there. We've got a few ideas floating around right now. Just gotta pick the most effective and conservative option.
Vundahcarr is right. I think a polo with just a pocket emblem would be sweet.
Maybe we need to drop the logo onto one of those online apparel shops and just let people buy what they want. I think they give a commission back which could help support the website?
I would be down using the logo and getting some Polos unless Del or SoCo hold legal rights on the usage of the logo and all affiliation??? Hell I would put it on my Tank to wear to the gym and represent the RenReg

Like I said, we will be going over the options for you guys. There's a possibility that the cheapest most effective route would be to have simple tees with the Renegade Regiment logo big on the front and the website (TheRenReg.com on the back in small print by the back of the neck. If we order in bulk they would be cheaper and then those of you who want your tags or nickname on the back we could add that on later after we received the bulk order. I've been down this road before with my band back in the day and while t-shirts are an awesome idea they can be tedious and expensive especially if there's a lot going on in the design of the shirt. The simpler, the better.
KISS - Keep It Simple Stupid
This is the motto we always spout at you guys and with the shirt designs it has to remain that way. While this whole idea is to get our Guildies some gear to rep the Regiment, Del and I must also consider the fact that TheRenReg is a brand name that we've been building since before ESO came out for PC even. With this in mind we want to avoid anything specifically related to ESO for the shirt designs. This is for the fact that we can use these shirts as prize give-aways like we've done in the past on Twitch when we were really actively streaming. By coming up with a simple Renegade Regiment Logo for the front and the website URL on the back we can effectively order in bulk and then customize the shirts depending on which guildies will want one and what they want on the back. For example I would have "The SoCo Kidd" printed on the back of the shirt across the shoulders (much like a basketball or football jersey where the players last name would normally be). This way we can order A LOT of shirts for future give away prizes and also have options for sizes.
I really don't want to rain on everyone's parade with the creative aspect here, but from experience I know that getting shirts designed and printed the way you want can be very tedious and annoying. Once Del and I can figure out exactly which site we want to use we will move on from there. Many sites now allow you to upload multiple designs to different styles of shirts and gear so there might be an easier way now to let the guildies have access to different options and pay for which ever option they choose. If you guys are willing to spend more on a polo or something like that we will try and find a way to make those options available to you for sure!
