And to follow up on Becca, its kind of ironic that pretty much all professional track and field athletes are walking billboards for their respective companies. Sorry man. :P

What makes something a walking billboard?


Any shirt I sell is going to have polevaultpower.com on it somewhere, so you could argue they are all walking billboards!


yeah, i know... but some times there can be too much on a shirt, or the lettering can be too big... so it ends up looking like a free t-shirt give away or a door prize, rather than something someone wants to buy.

a descrete nike swoosh isn't what i would call a walking billboard. it's not like they have NIKE written in huge letters across every open piece of fabric.

I think they look pretty sweet, and wouldnt mind at all wearing this "billboard." Get it made up and i'd be happy to buy a few. Anything to promote our sport!

dont forget the rules on 'sponsorship'

trey and vt would know more than i would, but at the West regionals we weren't allowed to have logo bigger than 8" across our back or chest.. (i.e. NIKE in huge block letters) we were allowed to have our schools name or mascott as big as we wanted, but nothing else....

i think that USATF has similar rules about how big your "sponsor" logo can be as well....

I understand that this shirt may just be for sale, but for the actual sponsored athletes-they need to think about the rules and sizing of logo.

just my 2cents..

ps- logos are lookign sweet!!!!

pps- We could all help out by puting pvp on the back of our club shirts or camp shirts.... I know once i make my shirts for my club, i will have pvp.com on the back of mine... not a bad way to help out becca...(ofcourse i asked permission :) )

I definitely don't mind if people add polevaultpower.com to the sponsors on their club shirts and stuff like that, as long as you send me one! haha. I just would not want people selling polevaultpower.com shirts.

This is a nice discussion, but not really relevant to anything regarding my shirts. College athletes needs to be wearing school-issued gear at their big meets. If I sponsor any athletes, they will have gear that meets the relevant rules.

The only good thing about Lime green is that very few schools have that as their color......which means that people won't have to worry about wearing the colors of their rival schools....that is why i was wary of red shirts
