Details of swap:

This is a swap for geek message shirts, you know, like you have all seen on websites like thinkgeek.com and jinx.com?  Yes, you know. -nods-  Show your geek pride!

If you decide to join, you will be paired up and will each craft two t-shirts for your partner with their favorite geeky sayings or messages!

You may stencil, silk screen, or iron-on your shirt designs -- which ever you prefer.  Feel free to do a little reconstruction if you like, but this IS a stenciled shirt swap.  Tongue Cheesy

This swap is for two shirts, but if you and your partner agree, you may craft more, or additional small geeky goodies (like a hat or a geeky tie).  Just to clear up, anything beyond two t-shirts is considered extra and must be agreed upon by swap partners -- its only fair! Cheesy

Here are some websites for inspiration:

http://www.thinkgeek.com/
http://www.jinx.com/

Additionally, when sending to partners in the U.S., you must get a delivery confirmation number for your package.  Thank you.  ( and thanks star69 for letting me take over her idea and run the swap! Cheesy )

I'm kinda new to stenciling, but I'm a perfectionist so I'll do a great job. Should I not sign up for this one and leave it to the more experienced stencilers?

I just might have to sign up for this one. First I have to come up with at least one clever thing to put on a shirt that I didn't rip off from someone else.

I'm pretty new to stenciling too, I've only done a couple - it's pretty easy to learn though. Looks very professional even when you have no idea what you're doing.

Anyway, I'm in! Sent my info. And I have a site to add to the inspiration list, from my favorite webcomic Megatokyo:

I *want* to join so badly... alas I'll be abroad between 08/08 and 08/21 and moving almost straight after that Cry Maybe there will be a round 2?
