      we finally got our shirt - the black on black looks awesome!! thanks :)

    2. Chris Sanderson on January 12, 2013

      Thanks Mark the T Shirts all arrived, no issues after a couple of washes logo and color all holding firm. Certs are great!

    3. Mark Cathro 7-time creator on January 11, 2013

      So, how does everyone like the certificates that came with your orders? I had a blast making them, and I really hope you all liked them. Be sure to check out the small print!

    4. Mark Cathro 7-time creator on January 4, 2013

      Anthony (and everyone else!) I'm very sorry to hear about the peeling. With plastisol ink it "sets" under heat; too little and it can wash away. Too much and it can crack and come off. We strive to make the shirts "just right" but we may have over or under "cured" the ink. My advice to everyone is to wash the shirts inside-out to help them last as long as possible. Being new to the shirt biz I am still learning how best to make them last. If any other people experience excessive peeling/cracking please let me know so I can determine if this is a "one-off" or if there is a larger issue with how me are curing the shirts.

    5. Mark Cathro 7-time creator on January 4, 2013

      Kevin- Regarding the tags on the bottom of the shirts: They are rip-away tags designed to come off. If it doesn't sit right it is easy to just pull it off. I've already done that to several of my shirts. (And unlike those mattress tags, you will not be breaking any laws be removing it!) :-)

    6. Mark Cathro 7-time creator on January 4, 2013

      Ed, there has been no movement on the custom shirt backers because I am still finishing up the initial delivery of shirts. There are still about eight to ten backers who have not gotten their shirts. (Due to us messing up the print and having to re-order or hard-to-find sizes/styles etc.) All of them should go out within a week or so. Once they are out the door I will move on to the custom designs. Soon, I promise!

    7. Ed Sochacki on January 4, 2013

      Any news for the three $300 backers on their special shirt designs?

    8. Gavin Lambert - Tormented Dreamer on January 3, 2013

      Shirts (and dice bag) arrived today (about ten minutes ago, in fact). They look awesome. Hopefully Anthony's experience was indeed atypical and they do survive a lot of wash cycles. (But I usually wash printed shirts inside out to help preserve them longer -- hopefully that works for these too.)

    9. Anthony S. Vornheder on December 26, 2012

      Have to say that I am disappointed. After a single washing, not having been worn at all, the lettering is popping up on the bottom. Hopefully, my experience is atypical.

      Got the Elminster/Drizzt shirt - I absolutely LOVE IT !! Thanks !!! I've already worn it a couple times and I love it when a random someone sees it and actually "Gets it" :) I want to give one constructive comment though, the tag is at the bottom of the shirt and 'flips' out constantly (I wear T-Shirts untucked). Just letting you know if you look toward changing that design in the future. Those shirts where the tag is printed on the fabric are always nice, just sayin .. either way, thanks for my new fav t-shirt

    11. Anne on December 26, 2012

      Love my shirts! Hubby got the mech and is in nerdvana. We proudly wore them to our local comic book store (gah, should have typed "grocery store" to keep the geek level down) and got mobbed! Thanks for a dang fun KS!

    12. Jan Hendriks de Geweldenaar on December 22, 2012

      Shirt arrived today in the Netherlands.
      It looks great.

    13. Arbitrary Ranger on December 21, 2012

      lol that's awesome. I would have never seen it myself, it was my wife who pointed it out to me; you can always just blame it on Radagast and his mushrooms.

    14. Mark Cathro 7-time creator on December 21, 2012

      Uhm, because I can't spell worth a damn? Looks like that one slipped through the cracks! And here I thought I was doing so well. Looks like all the backers that got a Mirkwood shirt got to sooper-rare "variant" edition! Sorry about that everyone!

    15. Arbitrary Ranger on December 20, 2012

      Got my "Mirkwood National Forest" T-Shirt - Outstanding! Just a random question though, why is there an 'l' at the end of forest on the sign? Just curious - love the t-shirt non-the-less.

    16. James McKendrew on December 16, 2012

      Shirts and bag received! Everything's awesome! My girlfriend didn't think about it and wore her Boobies of Persuasion to the grocery store. Everyone was REALLY nice to her, for some reason...

      CORNE on December 13, 2012

      shirts received, thanks a lot!!!!!

    18. James McKendrew on December 11, 2012

      @Garv - Stop pretending that you "fill the bag".

    19. Lee Garvin on December 8, 2012

      Got my shirt and bag! Wearing one of them right now!

      (I'll let you guess which of those two items I'm wearing.)

      Any updates on delivery date?

    21. Just Dave on November 19, 2012

      I know you are busy busy with the shirts, is there any update on the dice bags? Just curious how that part of the project is going

    22. James McKendrew on November 15, 2012

      So how's your work-heavy weekend go?

    23. James McKendrew on October 27, 2012

      And lo, I am surveyed.

    24. James McKendrew on October 21, 2012

      Well, just shy of 800% ain't bad... Congrats! Also, you officially have my cash.

    25. Lee Garvin on October 21, 2012

      Wow! You're closing in on you membership in the 1000% club!

    26. Mark Cathro 7-time creator on October 20, 2012

      Update sent. (And we both know mom loved me the best.)

      You're a slacker! You were always a slacker! Mom loved me best darrnit! Can we see the $10K stretch goal now please? :)

    28. Senator Cybus
      on October 20, 2012

      Oh, wait - *looks at the clock* - that's probably why. My bad. Don't mind me, I'm just drunk on gin...o_0

    29. Senator Cybus
      on October 20, 2012

      Hey, you've gone past the $10,000 mark; why isn't that stretch goal unlocked now? Unlock it, that I may be tempted to throw more money at you, damn it! :)

    30. Julia Gosztyla Ziobro
      on October 20, 2012

      Yay! Long (or 3/4) sleeves! Mark, you are my hero. Can you tell us which shirt supplier you're using. I'd love to be specific to save you trouble. :-)

    31. Will Edgington on October 20, 2012

      Yes, long sleeves please.
      Also, how much for extra shirts? I'm probably missing it somewhere.
      Lastly, I see the total is over $10,000 with 32 hours to go; it would be helpful to see the stretch goal before the end ...

    32. Mark Cathro 7-time creator on October 20, 2012

      Julia, YES I'd be happy to offer longer sleeves. As far as I am concerned if I can get it from my shirt supplier I can print my design on it and give backers what they want. There will be parts of the survey/form I send out after the project ends where backers can specify size, style etc. I'll probably put out another update today spelling that out since a lot of people miss the shirt update as it is burried in the updates section. Thanks!

    33. Julia Gosztyla Ziobro
      on October 20, 2012

      Mark, this site has a bunch of women's shirts with longer sleeves in the $5-7 price range. I would even throw in an extra $2? a shirt to get long or 3/4 sleeves. Hurry up and say yes and I will get another shirt! LOL I am so tired of short short sleeves but I love the longer-sleeved shirts and would wear them places other than to bed. :-)

    34. James McKendrew on October 19, 2012

      Whoa. You've picked up a few big-dollar backers in the past few days.

    35. James McKendrew on October 9, 2012

      I can't NOT get a D-Bag, for cryin' out loud.

    36. Lee Garvin on October 7, 2012

      I'm down for a bag: who else?

    37. Mark Cathro 7-time creator on October 6, 2012

      Yes they are! I was VERY pleased with how well the samples turned out. I think people are really going to like these.

    38. Lee Garvin on October 6, 2012

      The beans: they are spilled!

    39. Martin Dickson

      One "You Win Initiative" level becoming available... :)
      (Budget blowout) :(

    40. James McKendrew on September 28, 2012

      After visiting Garv at his place of employment, jacking him up against the wall and interrogating him mercilessly...
      Garv: Wanna hear about... The Beans?
      Me: Nah, I'll learn with everyone else.
      Garv: Ok, I'll tell you...
      I promised not to spill them, but all I can say is... I feel sorry for the Ogres. (Did he tell you about the Orkworld game, Mark?)

    41. James McKendrew on September 25, 2012

      Awww.... Garv... Beans AGAIN??? Ooh. Now I want Mexican for lunch.

    43. Mark Cathro 7-time creator on September 25, 2012

      OK Lee, I just ordered samples of the...uh...beans. :-)

    44. Lee Garvin on September 24, 2012

      Hey everybody! I just talked to Mark, and he's not sure about a possible product expansion. I'm not going to spill any beans here without his permission, but I'm hoping you guys will help me convince him that these are some awesome tasty beans, that need to be spilled!

    45. James McKendrew on September 24, 2012

      Different kind of distraction, to be sure. Unless you're into that kind of thing... (Not that there's anything wrong with that.) I haven't figured out whether I'm getting distraction, persuasion, or both for the gf. (They DESERVE both, but it's a matter of what she'd wear.) The Mech-damage shirt is PERFECT for a friend whom I owe for a favor he did me. Handy, that. B-)

    46. Mark Cathro 7-time creator on September 24, 2012

      I find man-boobs to be a bit distracting. (Not nearly so much as the other kind, of course!) Just posted an update on the blank shirts we will be using, and just $14 to go until the next Stretch Goal!

    47. James McKendrew on September 23, 2012

      It's difficult to have distracting boobies with men's shirt. (But certainly not impossible...)
