My friend Brandon Schneider has decided to partake in the age-old tradition of getting married. Brandon is also an enormously big fan of Schneider-Weise bier! For his bachelor party we decided to partake in the tradition of eating schnitzel, perhaps smoking a cigar, and most definitely drinking a few pints of Schneider-Weisse. To ensure camaraderie among the Schneider family and friends we designed a shirt which reflects Brandon’s affinity for barbecue & fermented wheat [see attached] and submitted it to our printer,
CustomInk recently notified me that the design may infringe on “protected material,” and requires your company’s written permission. Since we are not looking to profit in any way from (Brandon) Schneider’s bachelor tee, I was hoping you could provide written permission to use the brand image in question. If you are, however, limited by corporate regulations, we completely understand. Independent of you decision, we plan to enjoy a pint of your finest beverage at Schnieder’s Junggesellenabschied but a statement would surely ease the bitterness of these hops and we would rejoice and cheer at our new custom tee, and more importantly, Schneider's upcoming nuptials.
