What's this all about
I'm a designer and t-shirt lover, and also a code junkie. I came up with a fun idea for a t-shirt that I would love to wear, and I think others would. So I'm trying to produce the shirt. But in order to minimize financial risk in getting them made and sold, I'm following a pre-sale funding model here with this Kickstarter project.
What the shirt is about
The shirt design is in celebration of the people who make software and websites: HACKERS. The "git 'er done" people of the technology world - modern cowboys if you will.
The design is a simple and minimalist design, incorporating a simple concept of a computer monitor, and a banner with one of my favorite fonts of late, Liberator, by Lost Type Co-Op.
Details about the shirt
The shirts will be printed on a 30 single heather t-shirt from Saavy Tees (a division of Trau & Loevner in Pittsburg, PA). They will be tagless, and they are super soft. Shirt sizes run a little small, so consider a size up unless you like the slim fit.
I have printed on these tees before for the Grace & Truth shirts in my current online shop (JAG Shop). You might also have worn these shirts before as Saavy Tees also makes all of those vintage Pepsi, Dr. Pepper, Mt. Dew, Pillsbury, and other officially licensed tees you can get at Walmart.
There is going to be a heather gray, heather charcoal, and heather baby blue produced. Future runs of the shirt will be sold in my online shop at a higher price than what you'll get them for on this project.
Also, the shirt is going to glow in the dark. Boom!!
Thanks for backing my project!!!
