    My 4 year old's new (OLD) Ticket Book shirt.....

    Some of you might remember my fun E-Ticket shirt project from the past....

    Well even though my 4 year old really doesn't understand the nostalgia about Ticket Books nor will she ever be able to experience them.....she kept asking me to make to make her one to where when I where mine.......so I dug out an old JUNIOR book and came up with this version for her. The JUNIOR "E"s were PINK at one point so this works out great for her.

    Funny thing....her ticket book is older than the one on mine.

    Hers dates back to early-mid 70's. Note the Pack Mules and Mine Train....



    Front.


    Back




    Compared to mine....
    (forgive the FOG that rolled into the living room on this shot)




    If anyone wants some pointers of how I've made these and what materials I've tried and failed with...I'll be happy to share.

    If the Ticket Book design is copyrighted you could have a legal issue with Disney.

    They might take the shirt off your back [and front] (and your little one's)

    I thought that was only if you sold it for a profit?

    Nope. There are fair use exceptions but I doubt this would 'fit' those criteria.

    And if you give them away you still could be depriving the copyright owner of the potential to exploit it themselves, present or future.

    But for the consumer's own use, it's okay, right?
    Especially since she paid for the ticket books at one time or another, right?

    I have no ideas how these laws work... so...

    Purchasing the Ticket Book gives one the right to use the ticket book and the tickets therein for their intended purpose, not exploit the design of the book and the tickets.

    But it's all speculation.

    Yes.. Jeff is correct. Fair Use Laws are worth reviewing however as a general rule ANY duplication is not in the spirit of abiding to copyright.

    While they could be deemed a violation of copyright in a court of law....I have not yet been tackled by a CM, Security or Ed Grier when I talked to him wearing it. This is the reason why I don't trade, sell or barter these.

    Thanks Jeff...I know you are looking out for all of us.


    How I did it:

    Yes they are scanned images on IRON ONs.

    Materials:
    Cotton T-shirts
    Iron
    Inkjet printer
    Scanner (optional)
    Photo Editing software that can allow trimming coloring, shadowing, and REVERSAL (IMPORTANT) of image.

    Iron on material:
    I've had initial success with HP an AVERY "INKJET" IRON sheets. Check Office Depot, OfficeMAX or Staples...they will have at least one of the brands.

    Note: ALL transfer material is not very durable. It WILL crack and fade over time and possibley bleed if you don't iron or trim correctly.

    - Scan or find an image that you want.
    - Edit it (color brightness and contrast), trim unwanted artifacts.
    - REVERSE it with the software (MIRROR IMAGE)
    - PRINT it onto the INKJET paper
    - TRIM around leaving about 1mm buffer to nearest ink area. This can help protect the ink area from bleeding.

    IRONING
    Follow material's instruction.
    Key advice - FLAT HARD (NOT IRONING BOARD) surface, NO STEAM, a LOT of pressure pushing down and steady strokes over the whole surface, paying attention to the edges. 1 - 1.5 min for a full 8.5 x 11 image. Less for smaller images.

    Shirts
    Cotton works best.
    Kids shirts can be purchased at Target / Kohls for about $5-6 bucks if you want to experiment.
    Adult tees' - try www.cheapestees.com - you can get Hanes t's for about 3 bucks a piece.

    You can come up with different designs....like so..

    If this is a copyright violation, I would not worry about it. You are not making money off of this and you do not intend to. Also, while the e-ticket is larger than the actual version, you have not altered the proportions and you have the ticket copied in whole. I seriously doubt this would raise the eyebrow of even the most litigous Disney exec. Sure, that's just my opinion, but I would feel comfortable wearing the shirt. Right now there is a person selling DVD's on eBay which contain undeniable copyrighted material. In fact, they even use the Disneyland and 50th anniversary logo on their DVD cover. They have sold over 2000 copies of this on eBay alone, and I don't see that Disney has gone after them. No, it does not mean they won't eventually do something, but it shows they are not the vultures that we make them out to be.

    The shirts are very cute. I think if you wore them to Disneyland you would get positive comments on a nonstop basis. And, heaven forbid, someone from Disney might see it and use the idea to produce something more creative then what they have now.

    Please feel free to continue to share your creativity. I love your ideas.

    Apparently you've avoided the automated laser rifles in the Opera House *

    But just to be safe, steer clear of the Corporate Counsel(s) if you seem them

    Hey hey guys ease up!

    As long as you're not selling these shirts for a profit, you're good.

    Very, very cute, Even cuter that your daughter wants to match with you.

    I make iron-on shirts too...I made a Submarine Voyage one a while back. Maybe one day I'll get around to sharing it too.

    You've got some clever ideas and I really like your shirts.
