I did design the shirt, but the initial design that got posted here was just a basic draft and did not include any of the car artwork... I just wanted to give some credit to all the sponsors that make the event what it is... otherwise, it would be any other BMW meet. I just wanted to get an idea of what people thought of the final print. I am not a graphic artist by any means!

Its my first BFest t-shirt, but I think the design is sweet. Its the kind of shirt I would wear everyday. I have lots of "event" t-shirts, but few that I wear all the time. I think you did a great job! :thumbup:

Well, tell all your friends to call BMW Santa Barbara and pick up a few more! :) They have about 400 left. The money goes to support Bimmerfest and we have to get them sold.

It'll help out if you can get a snapshot of the shirt, front and back.

I definitely like the shirt Todd. And yes, the price was perfect. Although I would've bought it for $20 being the sucker that I am.

I don't know if any one paid close attention, but the graphics I did use do have a meaning. Since 2005 is the release year, I used the M5 on the back, and the grilles of the new E90 3 Series on the front... :thumbup:

I liked the Bimmerfest 2003 long sleeve shirts. Why did they continue selling them when people were pointing out they were messed up

I bought two of the Bimmerfest 2005 shirts while wearing my long-sleeved Bimmerfest 2003 shirt during my very short visit to the 'Fest (I was playing hooky from work) :angel:

I had not noticed Todd, but now that I look at it, it is even cooler than I thought it was before. :thumbup:

I liked the shirt. I have the '03 and I find the '05 to be a better shirt and price was just right. :thumbup:

I thought they looked great. I bought three. The price was good and the design was clean and simple. My son's mother actually commented last night on how she liked the 2005 shirt.

I like the color and design. Of course, the back is like the T-shirts that my bicycle club puts out, with the names of all the sponsors.

Has anyone washed their shirt yet? Will the blue run if washed in cold water?

Ive washed mine no problem, they are pre-washed Tees. Just turn them inside out to save the screenprinting.

I agree with you, but I understand how important it is to support the vendors so they will participate, etc.

I ended up buying 4 shirts, but would have liked to buy a lady's t-shirt for myself instead of a man's shirt. JMHO

If a vendors name scrunched up next to their competitors is all it takes to get thier participation than more power to them.

But I would wager that the inclusion on the t-shirt is virtually worthless to these vendors. They are there because they see the value of the event and having 4000 raving BMW fans to see their products.

Vendors care about selling products....not little logos on the back of a shirt that will sit in a drawer 25 days a month.

The vendors mostly participate because they love the event... and yes, to eventually make sales from their exposure. Business is business.

They were all VERY eager to be included on the shirt, more than you can imagine... some even fought over it.

Vendors, as any business, care about exposure and marketing to be succesful and continue to grow. Will they get millions from the shirt, no... But do you know how much companies pay to put their logo on the silliest shortest-lifespan products such as pens, lighters, matchbooks, plastic one-use cups, wrappers, etc... That is all trash with a one-time impression... Think about it. They do it for a reason. The shirts were an idea of mine to give them a bit of appreciation for coming each year and making Bimmerfest the best event it can be. Not a moneymaker.

First we will need to see a pic of the Lady who will be wearing the shirt so we can make a recommendation on sizing. :eeps:
