I don't know if you guys saw this yet or not, but WESH in Orlando is reporting that a 10 year-old boy was struck and killed by a Disney bus in front of Ft Wilderness this afternoon. It was a very short blurb on their website but it mentioned that the driver was charged with careless driving and was placed on leave. I noticed it when I was looking around on cnn's site. Absolutely horrible. Everybody go home and hug your kids.

Exclamation DIS DAD's T-shirts.......a little long but important

Since I was totally unfamiliar with Zazzle.com a few days ago, I figured I’d better look into how we can share our T-shirt design with our membership, as we seem to have quite a bit of interest in the current design(s).

This is what I have found out:

The design we choose can be stored as a Template on Zazzle, meaning it can be accessed, customized by our members and used for a wide variety of products ~ T-shirts, hats, bumper stickers, ‘fridge magnets, aprons, etc. The prices seem pretty good for all of these things. That’s the good news!


Now for the slightly less than good news:

In order to make a design/template, like a T-shirt, available to the public (our members), it must follow these Zazzle guidelines.

1) It has to be listed as a product in a Zazzle “personal store”;

2) In order to sell something in a personal store, it has to have a minimum 10% Royalty Fee attached.


Since I am not out to make a profit off the DIS Dads, I don’t know how to go about sharing the design with our membership without the Royalty Fee attached. I believe we have two choices for having a standardized Disney-themed logo via Zazzle.com, if that’s what we want:


1) I can set the template and shirt design up in a “personal store” and make them available to our members with the minimum required 10% Royalty Fee. That would add about an extra $1.69 or so to each non-discounted, basic white T-shirt purchased. The fee does take discounts into consideration, so with the current 10% shirt discount, the fee would actually be around $1.52 or so per basic white T-shirt. If we do that, I would be open to suggestions for what can be done with any “profit” I make from the Royalty Fees. I don’t expect this to be much but I really am not out to make any profit from our group. The 10% fee would also apply to any other items with the logo that might be in my store: hats, bumper stickers, kids shirts, etc. I enjoy designing the stuff, I just don’t want to make a profit off my DIS Dads friends for doing it.


2) I can make the details of the approved logo available to anyone who wishes to create their own shirt on the Zazzle site, thus saving the Royalty Fee. That would mean giving our members the Font information and the Goofy image information. To have a “standardized” logo, each member would then have to go to the design section of the site and use that info to duplicate the design Nate and I came up with. Such items do not have to go into a store since they are just being made for personal use. They can be purchased outright and saved on the site for future use. I don’t know how many members would want to spend time doing this as it is a little tedious and requires some familiarity with the design section of Zazzle. It isn’t difficult, though, once you get the hang of it.


Keep in mind, if we go with a standardized logo in a personal store, it can still be set up so the logo can be modified by each individual member. Fonts (type, color, sizes), wording and slogans can be changed to suit each person. I haven’t found a way yet to change the Goofy image without starting the design process over from scratch, but there may be a way to do that, too. Images can also be resized. A template can also be set up so only certain parts can be modified, such as the member name and membership number, leaving everything else the same.

The current design uses a basic, white T-shirt printed on one side (for cost purposes); Goofy’s image, since that was requested by various members; lime green for the lettering (the DIS’s official color); a font (AdLib) suggested by Nate; and www.disboards.com to help advertise our club. Nate also likes the slogan “Will work for Dole Whip”, as opposed to “Man Laws and Cheese Balls”, so the slogan would definitely be something each member could modify. A template with each slogan could probably be set up in the store to make that easy. Other styles of shirt and different shirt colors can also be used, if anyone would like to pay extra for those (Zazzle costs). That includes shirts with printing on both sides, as well.

I would appreciate some feedback on this. Thanks!

Just remember to fix it before you order the shirt!

I don't mind paying the extra 10% or whatever it is. I do not know if it is feasible but maybe the extra can be donated to an organization like Give Kids the World. We get the shirt and someone else benefits.

Thanks for all the great work you did designing it. I want one before my June trip.

That is a great idea for the donation!!!!!! GKTW is a great cause!

Even if it wasn't GKTW, I'm sure that we could come up with a worthy cause.

Wow, that's a terrible tragedy. The last place you expect something bad to happen to your family is in the happiest place on earth. Thoughts and prayers go out to the family AND the bus driver, who I am sure is also devastated!

This. Great idea. Collect the royalties and just have them payout every so often and forward what you collect on to GKTW, as a donation from the Dis Dads' Club.

This is just the kind of idea I was hoping for! It probably wouldn't be much but it would be something.

On another note: We may not have to put the design in a personal store afterall. I got an email from customer service that states the design can be emailed to anyone that wants it and they can then make the changes. I'm going to have to try this!

  • The exciting conclusions of Barry, Tim and Nick's TR's
  • The stunning final design of our Club t-shirt
  • Hopefully, an excellent fall discount so I can book my September trip to WDW
  • More excellent movie quotes in our TR hijackings
  • Picking up exactly where I left off in Don and Steve's TR's

I'll see if I can post some updates to Facebook while I'm gone if any of you are bored enough to want to know what's going on, and I'll have some pictures on FB when I get back. See ya!
Have a great time.

Best Idea yet, The club is getting big enough that with very little effort or money from each of us we could make a nice donation.

Zazzle is great because that is the company that Disney goes through on their t-shirt personalizations. Except, the codes posted only can only be used on Zazzle, and don't work if you go through the Disney Store. Also, I found a lime green t-shirt as well that can be personalized. There are so many Goofy heads to pick from, then their is t-shirt color, font of the words, front and back or front only, etc.

My vote:
(1) Everyone go through Zazzle
(2) Must pick a Goofy design, but any Goofy logo
(3) Front must say "Dis Dad's Club"
(4) Member # has to be included, any where on the shirt

This gives everyone some basics and allows for personalization, since most of us seem to be a bunch of characters anyway.

This idea would work for those members who don't mind designing their own shirts. For those who want to do less work and have something a little more standardized, I am offering my final design. It would still take a little modifying for the name and member number but that would be it. I'm not sure how we can vote on something like this or if it's necessary. If you like it, let me know and I'll email the design to you with modification instructions (as soon as I write them up!). I have also created one with Nate's slogan, "Will work for Dole Whip" and the surprised Goofy image. Thanks for the help, Nate!

These look great! Nice work guys!!

Of course, I'll probably need to wait a while to order mine. Or else I'll have to buy it and hide it. If DD were to see it, I think it might give away her birthday surprise trip in October.
