Roller Derby Vs Zombies
The t-shirt.

I'm Coletta L. Damage, I'm an illustrator, designer & roller derby addict in England. I run a little roller derby shop over at www.startle-derby.com. Startle is a small, independent, derby-owned business and we would like to buy in some stock of 60 or more of the Rolling Dead t-shirt design so we can sell them online and at stalls.  Stock will be limited but you can pre-order your colour and size by backing this project before Halloween!

The design is based on a full-colour poster I made for my home league, the Birmingham Blitz Dames, in 2011 - see below! It was super popular so we decided to make it into a t-shirt design. And at the risk of sounding bigheaded... it's pretty cool. 



The t-shirts were carefully chosen for their comfort and quality, and we've had great feedback about the colour, sizing and fit for both the ladies' and mens' shirts.

 Sizing goes from S to 2XL in both types and you can order kiwi green, red or white.

 I'm also offering as a reward some limited edition, specially created prints of the poster on good quality photographic paper which I will autograph. You can put it on your wall and impress your hipster friends. I'm so obscure. You've probably never heard of me. 

Two very generous backers will also get a custom illustration. I will draw a portrait of you or your loved one from photographs and descriptions with whatever theme you wish, and transform it into a juicy, digitally inked, comic book-style illustration like the examples below.

That's all! If the project is overfunded we will buy more t-shirts. I also have other garment designs which I'd like to print up, and I'd like to buy jewellery and printing components to make more pretty Roller Derby things for our customers. 

If funding goes well we'll try to think of some additional gifts to send out with the shirts, like postcards and stickers, to say thank you for backing this project!

Risks and challenges

We've totes done this before by taking pre-orders, and I've done lots of work for my league arranging complicated uniform orders. I have a t-shirt supplier who I trust to do a great job. Turnaround depends on how busy they are but generally takes less than a week.. The artwork is all ready to go and we know all the snags and how to foolproof printing orders!

The poster art prints shouldn't take any longer - I've also used these guys before and I've never had any problems, they do great work!

The custom illustration will take a little longer, depending on the time I have available, your brief and just how long it takes to get it perfect. My drawing has developed a lot since I made the examples shown, too, so what you'll get will be even better.
