My latest T-Shirt design sub to Teefury

Entitled "Boldly Go", it's a mash-up of Star Trek TOS, TNG, ENT and the board game Monopoly.

I'm happy with the design, but the color of the shirt is proving tricky. I've tried all the usual Trek Shirt colors and they overpower the design colors. Thoughts anyone?

    I really like this, but I know what you mean about the shirt color. That's really the only thing that's not working.

    I'd say, try dark gray, or maybe even white.

    Thanks. I was so busy messing with colors I forgot to try white and gray. :)

    White works well and dark gray is even better.

    Given the choice, I'd pick gray.
    Anyone else have a preference or idea for color?

    I think the gray is a good choice. I can't think of anything else working better. I love it, great design!

    Actually though, with the gray, the dice could even be white just to add a splash of brightness, I'm not sure if that will look better or not.

    Thanks. I tried the white dice as suggested but it didn't look so good (too higher contrast).

    For shirt colors it turns out some darker blues work well and it makes the red really pop. Still liking the gray best though and almost any shade works.

    Very cool shirt! I'd go gray or white...NOT cream/natural.

    Hope you get printed!

    I'm so with you on the NOT cream/natural now, it was a mistake. I've changed the picture above in the first post which had the cream to this...

    It includes black, dark blue and dark red which also look good.

    STILL loving the dark gray more than any of the others, good as they are.

    They actually make Star Trek Monopoly you know. I'm surprised it doesn't have this one the board.

    Yeah, it says "Collect 200 salary as you pass go". Seems they missed a trick. It even has the default Monopoly arrow.

    PS I have your Frakking Awful T-Shirt, It's Frakking Awesome :)

    Dark Grey. What about an Enterprise that looks like a Hat ?

    I would have so gotten a hat into the design had it warranted it. Assume the captains of the miniature ships are wearing them - Picard wears a Sombrero, Archer is wearing a Beer Helmet and Kirk has a Tribble on his head.

    Pardon me, but I do believe you have left off the BEST ship in the fleet, and subsequently the best show in the series...Voyager. Enterprise? Pardon me while I bang my head against the way to avoid boredom.

    Ha, but still good design for sure.

    I'm assuming he was going for era's.

    I don't know if it would hurt the design, but adding voyager and the defiant would be nice :P

    Thanks for the new comments. :)

    Why only vessels named Enterprise? I chose ships from the TV shows that used The 'Boldly Go' speech which appears in the Original series, the Next Generation and in the pilot of Star Trek Enterprise. Placing too many 'wessels' ;) on the board would make the design look crowded.

    The 9 on the dice? A reference to Warp speed. Whilst the Warp scale has been played around with over the years, the most recent series place Warp 9 point something as the maximum. According to Memory Alpha - 'In 24th century warp theory, a warp factor of 10 corresponded to an infinite velocity. A vessel traveling at warp 10 occupied all points in the universe simultaneously.'

    Actually, a Warp factor of 9.9 can be reached by the majority of Star Fleet vessels, and yes, the infinite velocity was reached once before by whome? Lt. Thomas Eugene Paris of the starship Voyager, though he did it on a modified shuttle craft.

    Just saying though...it was voyager that expanded beyond that warp 9 limitation.

    Lawyer'd

    I'd still buy this as is, but I just love that damned show.
