my friend helped me do it! what do you think? http://www.cafepress.co.uk/raecarter82
]Who should I talk to? It's based on the goonies. The phrase is "hey! uke guys?" Which is what I'm gonna call my music project maybe if I ever do it. I like the idea of sloth holding a uke above his head and he has a uu t shirt on?

cafe press is a site where you can design a logo etc.. and have it printed on tshirts, mugs, water bottles etc... you set the price (and may make a little money) with the sales of items... go there and type in ukulele... or anything else that interests you. You will laugh and be amazed at the amount of stuff you will find there!

As far as copyright I wish I could help... I am sure there is someone on here that can.

You might want to check with the UU staff first. They own the rights to the UU logo, and you may need their approval to reproduce it....

I'm actually sitting here wearing a Goonies t-shirt as I read this. Maybe it's a sign.

*toot* *toot* Sorry mate, whats that? Can't hear you over the sound of you blowing your own trumpet!... ;P

Sorry mate, couldn't resist! But no, its a brilliant idea. I don't own a ukulele shirt yet as I haven't come across one I actually "want"... simply being a uke shirt won't do but you shirt I would wear! I would buy seven and wear one everyday!

You have to do this now, I want that shirt! :)

Some great ideas in science, art, music, etc have come to the originator during altered states of consciousness. Go with it. Try drawing it yourself without thinking of it as art. Close your eyes and draw what you see in your mind's eye with your finger in the air until it feels/looks just right. Then try it on paper. It will definitely be an original. Leave your adult self out of it, just let your inner kid do it.

It doesn't have so resemble someone. The fact is that your friend used a copyrighted image, only took a minute to find the exact one he modified slightly.

I'm sure somewhere in the cafepress signup process there was some fine print about copyright that you agreed to.


We contractually prohibit our users from using the service to sell merchandise that infringes third party intellectual property rights (such as copyright, trademark, trade dress and right of publicity), moral rights, or is defamatory. We encourage rights owners to contact us if they believe that a user of our service has infringed their rights or that their content is defamatory. If you let us know that your rights are being infringed by one of our users we will (in our discretion) require that the user's content is removed from products and, if the user continues to infringe your rights (or infringes the rights of others) terminate the user's access to our services.
Sure, there's a lot of infringing stuff on cafepress. Looks like they operate under the DMCA's "safe harbor" provision where they don't have to actively police content, but if a copyright holder complains, they will tell you to cease & desist and if you don't they'll just terminate your account.

What's the print quality like with Cafepress nowdays? I had a couple of shirts from them a few years back and they were that poor type of computer print thing. They have lasted well enough but I was expecting a proper screen print.
