**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.

As you share this project, adventurer, funding levels rise. And as the funding levels rise...new opportunities spring forth!

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.
