SHOW SHIRT DESIGN CONTEST

HELP US DESIGN NEXT YEAR'S SHOW SHIRT!

DESIGN GUIDELINES

The shirt needs to include the following information:​

    • Front:

      • "Mystic" - the name of the show

    • Back:

      • ​Fairfax Marching Rebels (or FHS Marching Rebels)

      • 2019

      • Placeholder text for the names and dates of the competitions (our shirt vendor will drop the information into the final design before printing)

  • Designs should include visuals that help the viewers understand the spirit of our show.  In other words, the graphics should include elements of Ancient Egyptian mythology and imagery. Designs must be school appropriate.

  • The design can be drawn by hand or digitally.  Our t-shirt vendor will take the chosen design and prepare it for printing.  However, if you’d like to submit a digital design that is print ready, please email Wendy Littman for additional guidelines.

  • The background color of the shirt is black. Your design can include up to 3 colors, 2 of which must be blue and white.  It is ok to use, for example, blue, white, and yellow on the front and blue, white, and green on the back, as long as each design is only 3 colors.

  • Although the shirt will be black, create your design on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of white paper.  Elements you want to appear in white on the shirt should be drawn in black (the vendor will change the black ink to white when preparing the design for printing).

  • Please be sure your design doesn’t contain anything that viewers may find vulgar or offensive!

WHEN AND HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR DESIGNS

Please email your final design to Wendy Littman by Sunday, May 19th (EOD). Please include your name, grade, school, and section in your email.

EXAMPLES OF PREVIOUS SHOW SHIRTS

WHAT'S A SHOW SHIRT?

For those of you new to marching band, a show shirt is a t-shirt that advertises the fall marching show theme.  It is worn by everyone in the band when we go to competitions or football games, and it helps spread school (and band!) spirit.

HOW WILL THE CONTEST WORK?

Interested participants should design a shirt front, and if you’d like, a back.

  • You can submit as many designs as you’d like.

  • Mr. B and the spirit wear coordinators will review the designs and select a subset for voting.

  • The band will vote on their favorite design.

  • We’ll announce the winner at the banquet.

WHO CAN ENTER?

Anyone who’d like to throw their hat in the ring can participate!  We’d love to see designs from current band/guard members as well as rising 9th graders.​​
