Legal Implications of HS T-shirts?

I just wanted to ask some of the folks here this before I do this. I've been wanting to make a t-shirt with the SOTM box art on the front. Here are a few questions I have.

1. Is it legal to have a store make it for you? Will they make a shirt from copyrighted material, or will I have to do it myself?

2. Is it legal to sell the shirt once I've made it? Or is it legal to trade it, with no money involved?


Now, I don't want to sound selfish. I'm perfectly happy with making a shirt myself, for my own use, but I just want to know a few things beforehand. I'm not quite sure of the laws surrounding this. Thanks in advance.

I think there are better experts on the site, but I know for certain making them to sell is a big no-no. Making 1 for yourself I think is okay.

This is not the path I thought.
This is not the place I sought.
This is not the dream I bought,
just a fever of fate I've caught.

If you're just making one for yourself and a few friends just do it. Nobody's going to give a squat. I had a t-shirt made at one of those shops for this indie band nobody's ever heard of and the owner didn't blink an eye. Think of it as free advertisement. Now if you're going to print 10,000 and hawk them on eBay...

By the way, I'm an XL.

I don't think legally you can get into trouble making one for yourself. If you try and sell, then your in for trouble.

Very true, NEVER sell anything that has to do with another copyrighted product

Most certainly a big no-no. If you are ever not sure, take your art to the print shop pulling your shirts and ask them. In most cases, they will know what you can and cannot do.

Even if you are getting one made just for yourself, I don't think they will do it, for the print shop is selling the shirt to you. Thus they will be the ones libel.

****! I must be having a bad week!

I wore my one of a kind Jandar logo shirt at Gen Con to the Scape booth and got nothing but compliments. Had I been selling them at a booth of my own however...

See the difference?

As long as you are not trying to make money or slander there good name no one will care. It would be best if you have your own art work and the back should say " Coming Soon, OUT OF STOCK"


Their I was a dark hallway and wave 8 in hand with trees all that stood in my way of a fun game was some D-bag from Hasbro. When I woke up my hands were empty, I had a bad taste in my mouth and a note pinned to my shirt reading "HaHaHa you thought we would let you get this now HaHaHa, Ps I took your wallet".

I would rather bite the belly of the beast as it swallows me whole then run from it!

My son wore this to the HS booth at Gencon and no one complained...they actually got a big kick out of it.



I also made a bunch of these and gave them away as prizes to events.... (Gave Away being the key words)

Alright, thanks, everyone. Once I get it made I'll post it here. Any ideas on a funny/in-jokish t-shirt I could make?
