BLUE ON WHITE and GOLD ON BLACK logo file for #FreeNeilandFerdi T-shirts attached. You can take these to your local print shop or print yourself using an inkjet iron-on transfer.
Order Online: For a simple quick order (USA), you can go to http://www.zazzle.com/justice4theinnocent/products to purchase. Please note these are the lowest prices we could find for online on-demand printing. One is required to put in a profit percentage, so the lowest available was selected (5%). Any profits that come in for these sales will be donated to the Innocent Cleaners Fund. We are trying to locate other stores worldwide, if you know of any, please let us know.
We ask that you please use the blue transfer on a white t-shirt and the gold transfer on a black t-shirt. This will match the currently used designs people are using for #FreeNeilandFerdi worldwide. The #FreeNeilandFerdi font should print with a clear background on both shirts.
New additions! These are all available at the Zazzle store, but can also click on the image you like to print your own.
