PostSubject: Site T-shirts!   Tue Aug 26, 2014 9:50 am

What the title says. I'm planning on making site T-shirts! I'm still researching into the cost of making and shipping them, but I'm thinking they'll be around the 20 dollar range.

They'll have a design on the front that says DocWhoRP, but what it will look like exactly is to be determined. PM me if you want to be in the designing process for that! You might even get a free shirt if you come up with the design that'll be used... <.< >.>

The back will have your RL name, character name, or other text you might want, written in either Gallifreyan or English.

I'll upload some pictures of an example here as soon as the design for the front can be determined. By that time I should also have the exact cost for them.

Let me know if you're interested!

/me jawdrops.

I like this idea! It's just too bad I live in South America and don't have money... Sad

I believe we've gotten into this exact sort of thing before...And I'm pretty sure the problem was copyright. And the other issue was "where exactly is this money going?"

No printing company worth their salt is going to print or sell anything that has possible copyright flags on it, and SELLING those shirts to people, through this site, could very easily get the site hit with a copyright flag and shut down. I don't remember who it was who set up the shop last time, but I remember that we took it down almost immediately because of the risk.

Oh, no no, I'm not doing it through a printing company. I'm making the shirts myself. Good old fashioned fabric paint and all that. I know it's not as cool as screen print t-shirts, but it lowers the cost and negates that problem with copyright.
Also, all the money is going towards the costs for shipping and making the shirts; nothing more, nothing less.

so, just to be clear, the design needs to be something you can paint by hand?
btw, you can get screenprinting supplies at hobbylobby. my mom does screenprinted t-shirts..

Something that I can paint by hand would be nice XD But you don't have to make it overly simplistic, either. Just whatever design looks best to you :3
And I would get screenprinting supplies, but I don't know how to do that/it'd probably be expensive. I'll look into that, though, and see what I can do. Maybe I can have both cheaper, painted shirts, and more expensive, screen printed shirts *shrugs*

yeah. my mom gets the screens, i forgot how much they are, but she has this box with a light bulb, and makes her own screens for it. and then each screen can be used over and over like a zillion times. so once you actually make the screen, the only cost is the t-shirt and the paint.
She makes and sells t-shirts that she does Smile and they look really good.

I'll have to figure out how to use those, then Smile thank you for the suggestion. My birthday's coming up soon, so I could probably talk my parents into getting me a screen printing thingy <.< >.>
