Printing t-shirt design with trademarks?
September 30, 2013 4:44 PM Subscribe
My fraternity created a cool design that uses the outlines of a lot of the things that we like into our Greek letters. Unfortunately, this design incorporates a lot of different trademarks from a lot of different franchises, and as a result, we're running into different people saying that they can't print our design since it includes trademarks. Is there a way we can get around this? Can we get it printed as fair use somehow?

To clarify, we're not planning on selling these for profit. We'd just like to provide a cool piece of swag for our members. I think I read somewhere that if the design is taken as art, it's alright, but I'm not too clear on the subject. Thanks in advance!
