    Default People Can't TakeTheir Eyes Off My Shirt

    I designed a graphic on my computer that identifies me as a beekeeper and honey supplier.
    i ironed it onto my tee shirt.
    Everywhere I wear the shirt, I notice people staring at it.
    Some stop me and comment about the disappearing honeybee problem.
    My wife is amused.
    Some want my opinion about the decline in populations.
    i tell them the bees have been around for fifty million years.
    You couldn't kill them off if you tried your hardest.
    How successful have they been with AHB?
    Then I go on my way.
    The wife thinks I come across as too condescending.
    She is no longer amused.
    I say "hey, they brought it up".
    I'm just giving the opinion I was asked for.
    Sometimes I wish I had worn a different shirt...

    Thanks folks!

    >Which program did I use?

    CorelDRAW

    >Which printer?

    Canon Pixma MG5320, using iron-on tee shirt transfers bought from Office Depot. They work pretty nice.

    I like it. It is fun to play around with pictures of bees. I need a better camera but still get some suitable pictures some times
    I wish you well with your shirt and the experiences that will unfold from the power of the image. Best wishes, VW

    Here's one I just had a screen printed.
    My daughter with one one . Just had 8 xl made to see how they turned out .

    And the front pocket since I wanted a pocket .


    Going to make some labels up like the pocket I believe .
    Nothing ventured nothing gained . Sometimes the only way to learn is do .
    25 hives at the moment .

    I have to be careful where I wear it, but my favorite bee t-shirt was from the Beehive Enduro in New Jersey (that's a timed off-road motorcycle event similar to a rally).

    The motto on the back is "Stay healthy. Eat your honey."

    The design on your shirt can get strong reactions.

    This guy wore a t shirt with cat faces on it & people made assumptions & didn't like it.
