Love Roller Derby Shirts? Here's info about the "Loud. Charismatic. Announcer." Shirts By Strong Athletic
We created this roller derby shirt after it was requested by Hazenberg of Red Stick Roller Derby in Baton Rogue, Louisiana. He brought the idea to us at the Big O flat track derby tournament held every year in Eugene, Or, hosted by Emerald City Roller Derby. Apparently when Matt aka Haze, put the idea out there on #derbytwitter the idea was an immediate hit with members of the roller derby announcer community.
Roller derby announcers are an important part of the derby community. They help spectators understand the game and they help to narrate what is happening on the track. They pay attention to factors that are important and they respect the pronouns of athletes.
These black shirts say "Loud. Charismatic. Announcer." The words are screen printed by hand in bold white ink with the Strong Athletic logo on the front. The Strong Athletic logo is printed on the back.
The design of this shirt is based on the original "Strong Athletic Woman" design created by Cristen Perks. The words were brought to us by Haze. The Strong Athletic logo was created by Angel Ortega of Garzig Design. This shirt is screen printed by hand in Austin, Texas by Amanda at the Artists Screen Printing Coop.
