Hi Mark,
IANAL, but I think it's not a problem to use a CC-By-SA artwork to print
on the shirts or the cards, as you are not actually "sharing" it.
At least you could print near the icon, in tiny letters, something like
"(c)Tango Project" and/or mention the shirts, the buisness card and all
the stuff you printed on the website.

That was just my 2 cents
