About this project
**UPDATE: Shirts will be available in sizes S M L XL 2XL & 3XL! Please ignore all that nonsense about S-XL in the reward tiers!**
I need your help making shirts with dice portraits upon them. The shirts will form the letter "T" when laid flat upon a surface. See below:
Years ago I completed a series of portraits called Role Play, which feature the eight most common dice used in tabletop gaming. I gave each a unique & contemporary personality.
Previous efforts to put these portraits on shirts have been fruitless, adventurer! Design limitations and constraints dictated by printers produced boring, uninspired results. But no longer! Recently I discovered the alchemy of sublimation printing, which will allow me to produce shirts that are as bold as the original designs! Behold!
Think of it, adventurer...each design features a single die on the chest with the remainder of the artwork covering the entire front-side of the shirt.
Making shirts can be an expensive venture, but not if I order enough shirts to befit an entire guild of adventurers! Your pledge towards this goal is greatly appreciated, adventurer!
Sweet, sweet rewards.

Risks and challenges
As someone who has still not received rewards from projects funded long ago, I have a personal understanding of what it feels like to be shafted by a project creator. As bad as it feels I definitely would not rather be on the other end of that (yes, even with all that precious cashola), so I've designed this project to have a quick turnaround. As soon as the project is funded I plan on placing an order with the manufacturer, who promises a 10-day turnaround on single-side printed shirts. If something doesn't work out with them I will do my best to find a second manufacturer right away.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The shirts will feature a full print on the front side of the shirt: neck-to-waist, sleeve-to-sleeve. The back of the shirt will remain white. Initially, the shirts will be available in Men's Basic and Ladies Slim Fit (S-XL). These shirts are supersoft 100% spun polyester designed with the look and feel of cotton! They are manufactured by Vapor Apparel.
Due to how allover-print shirts are made, it is common for there to be some blemishes/blurring around the seams. Beyoncé sells allover print shirts on her website, and she too runs into this problem. She says that these blemishes aren't defects...they make every shirt unique! I'll be honest with you...they're defects and Beyoncé is a liar. Luckily, there is very little detail in Role Play designs in these areas, so this effect shouldn't be very noticeable.
When the project started, I hadn't found a printer who could supply the shirts in larger sizes...but that has changed! Kickstarter won't allow me to change reward descriptions, so rest easy knowing that the size limitations listed are FALSE and that once the project is funded you can order 2XL and 3XL shirts if you so decide.
A full, high quality allover print will be achieved by sublimation process. This means the image will be transferred to the shirt by heat! Since no ink is involved, there's absolutely zero-chance the front of this shirt is going to stick to you or feel gross and heavy in hot or humid climates.
Reward packages with shirts in them will ship February 2014. All other reward tiers will ship earlier!
