I like the shirt. Now you just have to make one with "Wasing not of wasing is." for SarahG.
Now you've got all the ones with beards on one side and all the
moustaches on the other.

Yeah and how about "He ate my horse" for myself. You could have a crude sword with a leather pouch tied to the hilt laying under it. Im not going to lie that would be sweet.

We should all get together and start a zazzle group, because I freaking love all these shirt ideas.

We should. And we can't forget the "There's always another secret" t-shirt!

EDIT: Wait, so if we do this, we can actually get paid for this?

Guess I should post mine.
Brandon also mentioned that I should acknowledge that he did hand out cards for Mistborn jewelry and figurines.

"Figurines"? Hmmm... sounds very interesting. I'd love to know more.

Wait, what?  There's a pay?  I just thought that was a site where you could upload your design, pay money and get it, then it went out on their system so other people can buy it as well.  I'm going to have to look over everything now to see if you can get paid.

*five minutes later*

Holy cow, it looks like you do.  That's totally cool!  I say we start a group with each person creating their idea and uploading it so they're the one that gets the profits from it, but they're all linked together.  (If you even can.  I think I've seen that done before.)

I am not opposed to this line of thinking. How do we set it up like that?

I'm not exactly sure how we would go about setting up a group.  I'm going to check everything out tonight and see if there's some way to get this worked out.  If there isn't a way to set it up so everyone can get the direct profits from their designs I would love to at least see some way to make sure the creators get part of it (if that is we even get paid for these designs.  But from what I can tell, we should.)

The question also becomes, should we be sending a portion of the money to EUOL as a "thank you for the series, here's our payment of royalties", and does he mind that we want to.  I personally think that if we do set something up and make a profit off of it, we should give a portion to him since it is his series.

Not to be a party pooper here but... isn't making T-shirts with quotes and art from Mistborn, and profiting from said T-shirts, kinda illegal?

Yes. If anyone does, it should be Brandon (and/or Jordan, to pay the website costs).
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

Perhaps there could be a way to set up the Zazzle and send the royalties to Brandon through the Paypal donation thing on his website. The way that Zazzle stuff works is that Zazzle gets the majority of the money, and then the creator gets a 10% royalty (it's possible to increase that royalty amount, but that increases the cost to the shirt). I don't really even care about money and would be happy to give the full amount of the royalties to Brandon--just one more way to support him, which I am all for!

If not that (because that seems rather complicated to get the royalties to Brandon), Brandon or Jordan should really think about making a Zazzle thing themselves, because it doesn't seem too difficult to do.

I know I'd want some of those shirts :D
