Available for pre-order NOW!

It’s been quite some time since the OMS has offered a tee shirt for sale. The idea came up after long time members Mike Nagy and Karen Kelley hosted a tour of Case Western Reserve’s Mushroom Growing operation. After the tour, the group met at Karen Kelley’s house for a social gathering. It was there that Karen shared a great tee shirt idea based literally on the design of a mushroom themed napkin. After a quick approval by the board Karen and Cathy Pepera worked to develop the following artwork proof. The text will be featured on the front of the shirt and the logo will be on the reverse side with the background color of the shirt showing through the logo. We think it turned out fantastic!
Karen Kelley had a few sample hoodies made up (shown below) which Cathy and I wore to the Indiana Morel and Music Festival in April. We had quite a few people comment that they loved the shirts and several people asked us if we had any for sale.
Note: The Hoodie in the above pictures does not reflect the actual shirt we will use. (The shirt shown was purchased separately and given to the screen printer just for the sample). Also, the shirt was made using an inkjet printer and is not nearly as vibrant as the actual shirts which will be silkscreened.
Our shirts are available for pre-order which we plan to have available for pick-up at the Summer Foray July 18-19 and the Fall Foray Oct 3-4. In order to guarantee delivery by the Summer Foray all orders must be received no later than July 5th.
