Purchase a Sugar Warriors T-shirt



This year ACBDA has joined up with Blind Girl Designs for our Sugar Warriors t-shirt. Blind Girl Designs is a company owned and operated by Tricia Waechter, who has retinitis pigmentosa, and is legally blind. She has a long history in clothing design and a desire for sharing her passion.  Her trademark appears in every article design and is included in our design. This trademark is a white cane. The above images reflect the design for this year.

Shirt Design Description

The crew neck short sleeve t-shirt is royal blue and made from high quality heavy weight cotton, the same quality that Tricia uses in her regular line. This means that there is very little shrinkage, so don’t buy a size up! Do wash your t-shirts inside out to preserve the ink.

On the front of the T-shirt, there is a left chest pocket. Above the pocket, printed in white is “ACB Diabetics in Action”.

The back of the shirt has a 12-inch by 12-inch colorful print. Across the top, “Sugar Warriors” is printed in both letters and Braille in a velvety 3 D puff ink.  This is in orange puff and is very tactile.

Beneath the words is a drawing of a fist with prominent knuckles, which is holding a white cane diagonally, smashing through cubes of sugar.

The white sugar cubes are flying, struck by the mighty force of the White cane. To further emphasize the force, the words, “pow” and “bam” are colorfully included in yellow and red.  At the bottom of the print in orange, the words “Knuckling down on diabetes!” fill the entire length of the print.

Shirt Sizes and Pricing

Shirts come in size Small through 5 XL.  The cost of the shirt is $29 which includes shipping (if you choose to have it shipped).  If you choose to pick up your order in Schaumburg (at the national convention), ACBDA will not incur a shipping charge.

T-shirts will be shipped in “batches” based on when orders are received. This means you may get your T-shirt in a few days from the order or within two weeks.
