More Ways to Meet Offline

One of the advantages of MySpamSponge intro cards is that you decide who receives them, and therefore who may contact you. If you prefer a less selective approach, we have other ways to help you meet people offline.

Put your handle on a T-shirt (or other clothing), book bag, etc.

Meet people offline by putting your MySpamSponge handle on your clothing

The text says:

Want to contact me?
Go to
And enter my
handle (contact code)

Spam has met its match, but I haven't met mine . . . yet!

The font that we used for the above T-shirt was Elementary Heavy SF, but you can choose another one. Obviously, you must substitute your handle in place of the blueeyes one shown in the example.

You can make your own clothing by using inexpensive ink jet T-shirt iron-on transfer paper, such as that sold by Avery® (item # 3275)*. Or have a T-shirt, jacket, hat, book bag (or whatever) made for you by any of the countless local and Internet-based companies that specialize in such work.

* If you make your own, don't leave the iron on longer than directed. We left it on for a total of 5 minutes (2 minutes longer than directed), and it just scorched the transfer film in most areas, producing a yellowish discoloration.

To get you started, you can download templates that include this text and the MySpamSponge logo. We have templates in 4 formats:

If you click one of the last two links, a box similar to the following one will appear (it may look somewhat different, depending on your operating system and browser, and the name and type of the file being downloaded):

Example of how to download the template

Click Save. A "Save As" window will then pop up. Select the folder where you wish to save the file to, and then click Save again.

You may need to shrink the image size somewhat if some of the image is outside the margins of your printer. Many printers have a "shrink to fit" option, and some will warn you before printing a document that includes content falling outside of one or more of its margins. Iron-on transfer paper isn't expensive (less than a dollar per sheet), but it is still advisable to first print on plain paper to verify that none of the image is cut off.

Another caveat: Many ink jet printers have a media-type setting for printing on T-shirt transfer paper. Choosing this setting will probably perform the necessary step of horizontally flipping it (creating a mirror image), but you should check first by consulting your printer's manual or doing a test print on plain paper. If your printer doesn't flip the image for you, you must do it manually. Otherwise, when you transfer the image onto fabric, it will be a mirror image of what it should look like.

Put your handle on a magnetic sign or sticker attached to your car

Meet people offline by putting your MySpamSponge handle on your car

If you do this, it is best to have the magnetic sign or sticker made for you by a printing company that does such work. The magnetic media that we've seen for ink jet printers is not strong enough to resist wind on a moving vehicle, and the ink probably won't have a good lifespan when exposed to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun.

Whether you choose to make your own or have it made for you, please see the above topic for more information.
