I have only been on this forum for a short while now and I've already met so many fabulous people. I am happy to be part of a group of individuals united for the growth, study, and conservation of one of the most beautiful genus of plants on Earth. I would be proud to sport something that shows this love to everyone around me. That's why I'm thinking that it would be wonderful if we as a group could design a t-shirt representing The Sarracenia Forum. Also, who on this forum couldn't use another t-shirt? Are you interested? Would you pay for such a shirt? If so, what could you do to make this the best shirt ever? For example, if you're an artist you could submit your artwork/designs...Do you know of someone or some company that could print high quality screen-designs at a reasonable price...etc... I'm going to try to come up with a design myself sometime in the next few weeks. WHAT COULD YOU DO?

I was thinking they would be sold at cost, but if we wanted to make a profit we could donate it to a worthy organization like DaBogJesus said. Also, after getting a number of designs we could take a poll on which one people like best.

Well, if there is a way to fairly and easily create a tshirt design which many people will buy, I would have no problem. If anyone wants to create a design to submit, please do so. I will look into companies which can produce the shirts!
Creator of the forums! Yeah, I know I was away for a while, but I am back!!!

I drew this up last night in pencil last. It's my first time drawing a Sarracenia so go easy on me I based it on a pic that meizzwang took of one of his ornatas:
Here is my depiction of it with "THE SARRACENIA FORUM" drawn into the veins:
It's just my first draft and I'm thinking of drawing three different Sarracenia with one word of "THE SARRACENIA FORUM" on each of the pitchers and of course I will include a flower. It also will look better drawn in ink. I also need to work on the lettering a bit. What do you think?
Holy crap, I'm impressed Naturenuts, what a great idea! I think it's worth making a profit and donating it to the NASC to strengthen their current efforts and save more land. Honestly, there isn't much time left on many of these remaining parcels, and the more funds they have, the better a chance these properties can be acquired. Definitely count me in on some shirts when they are done
Naturenuts, I might have some time over the next few days, I'll see what I can come up with. I think you've gone a very good way choosing plants with nice veins as colour isn't really an option. The other option I was thinking is choosing a couple different shaped pitchers, kind of like the CCPS or the ICPS.
I also agree 100% with Mike. Any extra money for that cause is good, I would buy a couple shirts to help support it.
sanguinearocks101: What are good plants to make hybrids with S. luecophylla with? Im looking for dark colors.

adaetz100: Sarracenia purpurea tends to add a lot of red/purple to its offspring, but there are some lovely dark red flava x leucophylla crosses too. Look up 'Royal Ruby' if you're not familiar with it already--it's a natural flava x leuco hybrid
