Girls Like Comics Too shirt

This is your chance to show the world that GIRLS LIKE COMICS TOO! 

These are professionally printed shirts with a Bella cut. The main print run will be in BLACK on nice, soft, high-quality shirts. The graphic is designed with two colors, which increases the print costs, but makes the logo really pop.

Sample Shirts at Comicon

I need to print enough shirts to get a good unit cost, which is why I've come to Kickstarter. With your support, I'll be able to print the shirts on high-quality fabric and ship them to you at an attractive price.

You can see from the photos and video that I did a small sample print run. This was just to see how it would turn out, since I wanted the graphic to be printed with two colors on a high quality shirt.

My little proof-of-concept printing experiment was a success. (Whoo hoo!) At NYCC, I sold through the mini test batch. In fact, the shirt I am holding in the video is my last one.

Why Kickstarter?

When you make printed shirts, you have to print in greater quantities in order to get a lower unit cost. In order to keep the price affordable for you, I need to meet a minimum threshold at the printer...and with your help, I will get there. 

Support my Kickstart project and you will get a quality shirt  at a price that almost anyone can afford. Showing the world that you like comics shouldn't have to be expensive! 

Designs

Featuring designs by Arlene So, designer for Wizard magazine and Marvel Comics.

Risks and challenges

No real risks. I printed a short run of shirts for New York Comicon and we'll be using the same classic design. We print and ship the shirts from NJ.

The only real challenge is financial. Have to raise enough funds to get a good unit cost to keep the final price where I want it.

If we get a good number orders, I'll have to pack them and ship them, which will take some time. But we plan to move these quickly.
