About

ARKADO RETURNS, Vintage Arcade Inspired Limited Edition Tees

$745

Insert Coins and let the one-two punch of arcade nostalgia hit you right in your wardrobe. ARKADO RETURNS is a follow up to my first Kickstarter campaign, ARKADO, that was sucessfully funded and delivered in 2014.

Like it's former, ARKADO RETURNS is a celebration of 26 vintage arcade titles that range from the beloved to the obscure. Can you name them all?

This time ARKADO RETURNS with two designs presented in both Horizontal  Mode and Vertical Mode, like the arcade screen orientation of the past.

Like my previous campaigns, the goal is to fund a limited edition run of this artwork on apparel and print. If successfully funded, this limited edition apparel will be made to order for the backers along side a small batch run to be sold at conventions and shows. Like ARKADO, EFEMERECO, and WINNERS DON'T DRINK DRUGS, once all these shirts have been sold, no more will be made. 

The tees will be silk screened with Pantone 375 C and Reflex Blue C ink onto super soft, Bella Canvas 100% Cotton Baby Blue Unisex Tees. These tees are available in size EXTRA SMALL through 4XL. Please click the images below for more information about the apparel (i.e. size options, measurements, fabric blends, etc.).

Appreciate the arts but not a tee shirt person? That's cool. At a $10.00 pledge you'll receive both designs as separate 11" x 14" prints (in a color variant not pictured here). These prints will be signed and numbered.

To see the many steps I took creating these new designs, please visit my website.

Risks and challenges

All print production for this campaign will be done on Long Island and most will be sourced through the printing company I work for. The greatest challenge will be obtaining the funds required for the production run as this project is my most ambitious to date. It features multiple designs and multiple style options; however, I have handled projects similar to this for private clients, so I feel confident that I can complete this project within the deadline give if successfully funded. The only plausible hurdle I see relates to lack of exposure, so if you (the backers) want this limited apparel to be produced, please share this campaign with as many people as you can through as many avenues you can (Twitter, Facebook, podcasts, word-of-mouth, etc.). It would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your support.
