These guys are tenants of mine, their stuff is top notch. I'm happy to get some T shirts printed if required and more than happy to wear one. It's an issue which needs some driving home.

Contest for the caption on the shirt? Personally, I quite like something subtle but to the point, such as:
Don't be a C**t wear your cord!

How about...

Kill Cord or Kill Joy?
(or kill Jack, or Daisy, or Harvey, or Katie
or Thomas, or Jade, or Peter, or Carol,
and add names of your choice)

If we get this right, it could run. We need a good logo that hits home without being naff. Are there any graphics guys on here?

Ok, so lets ignore the arrogant ones who think they are so clever that kill cords don't apply to them, and concentrate on the people that just don't realise the dangers. How do you reach them?

I like the idea of polo shirts or T-shirts if we could get enough people to buy and wear them. If they were well designed and good quality I would buy a few.

I guess Social Media is another way of reaching the masses. Maybe a "Wear your Killcord" Facebook page?

Sounds like a good idea. Let's assume we'll run with it, and please keep this thread on topic.

I think that would tie in very well, and pictures of people wearing the shirts would be good twitter/facebook fodder.

So, we need

- more ideas for slogans and logo
- a designer or designers to make it look excellent

Any takers?

I like the idea.

Who's going to wear the T-Shirts and in what context ? Are we thinking family guy when out on his boat, or commercial guy during his working day ?
