I don't have enough long-sleeved t-shirts. But whatever you decide on, I'll buy one.

My order is ready! I have a whole family ready to don the new 14ers.com-wear! Bill, can you set it up to purchase through PayPal? Sorry if you already mentioned that somewhere. PayPal is fast and safe. Can't wait!

Thanks for your hard work!

The BEST is yet to come!

When viewed while increasing the distance to the
logo/image, it is my opinion that the letters and the
mountain profile 'run together'. So, I'd put more
space between the letters and the mountain profile
(and, possibly open up the spacing between/around
the letters).
I love this site!

9/24/2007 Update: I should have the first round of shirts in a week or so, but here are some photos of the first ones off the press. Once I get them, I'll put up an order page with better sample photos of each version in each shirt color...

Looks pretty good Mr. Middlebrook, I'll get one for sure.

I originally thought that I would like the Logo on the back of the shirt better, but after seeing the final draft, I think I'll go for one with the list. Something about the giant logo and tagline doesn't look so good to me anymore. The yellow lettering is okay, but I think I liked the orange 'alpenglow' color more. Along that note, when you develop more colors, what I would be most interested in is a shirt that's the maroon color of the background on the 14ers home page, with the orange lettering. Hopefully some people will agree with me on that.

Also, I would certainly buy a 14ers.com hooded sweatshirt, with a big logo on the front (I could do without the tagline). I don't think anyone has mentioned that yet. I would sport my 14ers hoodie all over the place.

Thanks very much for this great website. In less than a month I've already met some great people here, and I look forward to meeting many more. :D

The letter color ended up being a bit more gold than orange because it just didn't look quite right on a shirt at press check. So, now it's a bit more yellow than orange. Some will like it and some will not, but I'll have good digitals on the order page so people can decide based on actual photos of the shirt.

Very Cool,
I'll be getting 2 when they come in. Maybe a future run could have checkboxes so we can check off the ones we've done as we do them?
