we finally got our shirt - the black on black looks awesome!! thanks :)
Thanks Mark the T Shirts all arrived, no issues after a couple of washes logo and color all holding firm. Certs are great!
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!
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.
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!) :-)
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!
Any news for the three $300 backers on their special shirt designs?
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.)
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
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!
Shirt arrived today in the Netherlands.
It looks great.
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.
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!
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.
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...
shirts received, thanks a lot!!!!!
@Garv - Stop pretending that you "fill the bag".
Got my shirt and bag! Wearing one of them right now!
(I'll let you guess which of those two items I'm wearing.)
shirts have arrived
Any updates on delivery date?
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
So how's your work-heavy weekend go?
And lo, I am surveyed.
Well, just shy of 800% ain't bad... Congrats! Also, you officially have my cash.
Wow! You're closing in on you membership in the 1000% club!
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? :)
Oh, wait - *looks at the clock* - that's probably why. My bad. Don't mind me, I'm just drunk on gin...o_0
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! :)
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. :-)
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 ...
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!
Mark, this site has a bunch of women's shirts with longer sleeves in the $5-7 price range. http://www.t-shirtwholesaler.com 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. :-)
Whoa. You've picked up a few big-dollar backers in the past few days.
I can't NOT get a D-Bag, for cryin' out loud.
I'm down for a bag: who else?
Yes they are! I was VERY pleased with how well the samples turned out. I think people are really going to like these.
The beans: they are spilled!
One "You Win Initiative" level becoming available... :)
(Budget blowout) :(
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?)
Awww.... Garv... Beans AGAIN??? Ooh. Now I want Mexican for lunch.
OK Lee, I just ordered samples of the...uh...beans. :-)
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!
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-)
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!
It's difficult to have distracting boobies with men's shirt. (But certainly not impossible...)
