View Full Version : IMPORTANT: NEW Ron Paul Hat, Need help!

12-19-2007, 05:00 PM
I know this is the second time i've posted about this hat, but i really need help;

1) I need to find how many people would be interested in buying a Ron Paul New Era 5950 Fitted Hat/Cap
-price woud be between $20-$25 dollars
-proceeds go towards the RP Blimp or chip-ins,
or any other thing that we need to support.

2) We have almost everything done in order to produce these hats except that
we need to find who took this picture so that we can get authorization to use the image. Also, if anyone has Ron Paul's signature that we could use to put on the back of the hats, that'd be great.

3) The minimum we can order is 100 hats, and 1/3 of the price is due before hand, so i'm not exactly sure what to do..is there anyone who can sell/distribute these hats?? I cant do it myself, i dont have the money to pay for something like this, but i will definitely buy a few of the hats.(freshman in college, broke..)
If anyone has an online website and would like to sell these, let me, or emailtojason, know.

Front: Ron Pauls face, this is the picture we need authorization to use.
Back: Ron Paul's signature (we need one we can use too)

Thanks for all the help, let me know what anyone can do to help with these, i'm sure that this could be a really big item. Maybe we can get it on the campaign website?? :cool:

Can that be used?

yeah, i really like the hat pic that i have already, i just wish i could find out who took the picture so i could ask them to use it, how awesome would these hats be? i know they'd be great sellers, especially to younger RP supporters, like myself.

How about some different colors? Two colors- the hat/the Ron Paul image
I think bright colors would be better. I also would prefer just a Ron Paul signature as seen 6 posts up on Hamadeh's post.

Finally, I think the Ron Paul image should be reduced in size by about 20%.

Show a few different options and I'll probably buy one or maybe even more.

I did a little internet search and found that exact pic here...

CAFE PRESS MARKET (http://www.cafepress.com/buy/ron+paul/-/pg_2/go_1)

Might be a good place to start finding out who did it. It's a featured pic on a lot of items, so it might turn out to be a public domain photo taken from the official website.

Anyway can't hurt to ask the people selling the design on shirts and such.
They had to have an ability/ copyright to use it, or it wouldn't be allowed on a public market place. (CAFE PRESS RULES)

I though I already posted it was by Libertymaniacs. I think my post got deleted.


I think it should have "RON PAUL" under the brim, so the brim could be flipped up to show his name. I'd get one for sure if it had that.

all the picture is is a snapshot of ron from the side and then in photoshop is has that one effect added to it. (i forget what its called)

i dont see why you have to have permission
