Title: T-shirts
Post by: nilcam on May 06, 2011, 10:36:31 PM
THE ANSWER and I are working on some promotional materials for an upcoming event. In the course of this, I am contemplating designing a t-shirt, banner and some other stuff. As I design the shirt, I was wondering if any of the Dream Cancel family would be interested in buying a t-shirt. Let me know.

Just an FYI: I'm not trying to make any money off of this project. If there's enough interest, the shirts will be barely above cost and proceeds will be put back into the community.

You can never have too many T-Shirts, especially if it's reppin' DC =)   For the record, I don't think there's anything wrong with making a small profit, especially since you still have to travel to the venue (I'm assuming the next will be Evo); we just jump in a car and go =).

DC shirts!!! Yeah!!!!

You should put a reference in the front page.

Hell yeah, I'll take a t-shirt too. What sizes will you have?
Title: Re: T-shirts
Post by: nilcam on May 07, 2011, 01:49:01 AM
Everything from S-XXL should be available. Shirts will be produced as they're ordered.

I've ordered a test shirt. If I feel the quality of the shirt and printing are good, I'll show off the design. I have about 3 different shirt design ideas.

Put one aside with an owl wearing the infinity logo strategically placed where it's easy to spot. Instant buy for me!

A good idea is to have dreamcancel advertised on the back while ppls handle are blinging in the front =)

You guys should talk to Koogy about this! :)
Title: Re: T-shirts
Post by: nilcam on May 08, 2011, 12:29:45 AM
Definitely no characters on the shirts.

I'll look into international shipping.

Who's Koogy?
Title: Re: T-shirts
Post by: THE ANSWER on May 08, 2011, 01:19:00 AM
Also adding individual user/handle names might add to the cost of the shirts, let's start with something simple so that as many people as possible can afford them.
Title: Re: T-shirts
Post by: FataCon on May 08, 2011, 02:37:09 AM
Who's Koogy?

Koogy is the guy who started up BrokenTier (the company that's been making all the Capcom themed shirts). He's pretty approachable when it comes to t-shirt ideas, but he mostly does themes rather than affiliations (AFAIK). It wouldn't hurt to try asking him, even if it's just for pointers about getting good deals on having the shirts made.

That said, I'd totally rep DC shirts. A good community has been building up here and I personally think it's worth supporting. As always, thanks for all your hard work, nilcam.

edit: Oh, and The Answer too lol

Here's what the cats at SRK are doing, so this could possibly be good for "some" ideas:

http://store.kineda.com/

Maybe not characters per sť on the shirt, but some references, or "symbols" (i.e. - Cresent Moon, Sun, Heavy D!'s eagle tat, etc) would be kinda dope to have on the shirts... Just brainstorming here...
Title: Re: T-shirts
Post by: Shinra Shiranui on May 09, 2011, 02:35:13 PM
I'll buy 2-4.

Do you guys have a estimate on how much these shirts are going to be?
Title: Re: T-shirts
Post by: nilcam on May 09, 2011, 03:14:34 PM
The service offers differing weights of shirts. My test order was the standard weight with printing on front and back and was just under $20 for an XL. Once you go over XXL, I think the shirts cost a bit more. If the t-shirt I ordered were on Gildan, it would have been closer to $25. If the quality is sufficient, I plan to do several designs so that there will be a price range.

Also, it looks like international shipping is offered.
Title: Re: T-shirts
Post by: DarKaoZ on May 09, 2011, 06:16:52 PM
I wonder if it's illegal to have silhouettes of characters in the design, you know due to the copyright.

Because with just the silhouettes of the characters you can do some really cool designs.
Title: Re: T-shirts
Post by: nilcam on May 09, 2011, 06:27:53 PM
At that point, you're really pushing it. The problem with current copyright law is that if a copyright isn't protected, the company will lose their claim to the property.

Update: The test shirt has shipped! Hopefully, it will arrive by next weekend.

Because with just the silhouettes of the characters you can do some really cool designs.

That's why I was just suggesting character specific symbols, or phrases... They both aren't under any copywrite per sť, so having say a and hand throwing a red hat in the air, with an "OK!" somewhere on the shirt for example, shouldn't get you in trouble... Once the actual character, or an actual detailed hand shows or proves that it's Terry Bogard, then you might catch some heat... But maybe the hand/hat concept could be used in a silhouette to avoid the whole fiasco, and in that case would be fine, but it would have to appear in a way that technically anyone could be throwing a hat and say "OK!"...

Also, will there be any Engrish on the shirts??? Some Geese phrases would be funny and dope at the same time... Maybe have it written in some manga-themed katakana??? Just throwing ideas out there...
Title: Re: T-shirts
Post by: DarKaoZ on May 09, 2011, 08:07:47 PM
Engrish would be awesome, you have enough material with Terry and Geese.

But you are right, having the silhouette of a character could be pushing it, even if it's kinda hidden inside other design.

I would love to see a black shirt with a "+" necklace on the front and the phrase K dash has on the back, forgot what it is. Let me google it *googles* wtf?! There is a clothing brand called K-Dash?! By the Kardashian sisters!? Ok... wow... this is new to me.

Engrish quotes? I just love them! Here are few suggestions:

"Challenge me? Ya hot spunky kid. I hate spunk."
"Know you're faults. For they are many."
"Wubba wubba. I'm in the pink today, boy!"
"I slay my imitation with my sword together with Mt.Fuji!"
"Die like your father, you pinheaded son of an icecream maker!"

We need a shirt that says:
"Reppuuken!!!
Reppuuken!!!
DOUBLE Reppuken!!!"

--or--

"Psycho Ball!!!
Psycho Ball!!!
Psycho Sword!!!"

(Maybe the Engrish version might suffice??? Iunno :s )

Of course, having the Deadly Rave input on the shirt would be kinda dope, imo-- that or some other "manly" SNK command input... "PREDICTABO!!" would be dope too...

Either way, I'm diggin' the stuff I see... I'm definitely getting one for myself and the wifey!!!  :)

Lots of good ideas here. Most of these would probably have to be vintage style to allow for proper colors.

i think  a shirt that says "it all began in 94" with the 94 styled just like it is in the kof 94 logo would be sweet
Title: Re: T-shirts
Post by: Rex Dart on May 22, 2011, 05:53:49 PM
Just wondering, but would printing something on the back of the t-shirt make them more expensive? Or was that even an option?

I think some these designs, especially the "R.I.F.R.M." ones look a bit cluttered as is. If the DC logo was moved to the back of the shirt, they'd look a bit sharper and easier to read. In my opinion, anyway.

And I don't mean to suggest that the shirts aren't cool as-is.  :)
Title: Re: T-shirts
Post by: nilcam on May 22, 2011, 08:15:53 PM
I could add the logo on the back, but it's very expensive, like $10 extra. I personally don't buy t-shirts that are more than $20 and I wanted to keep the shirts as inexpensive as possible.
