      @Matt So glad to hear that you love the shirt! :)

    2. Creator Matt Stortz on October 18, 2012

      Holy Smokes!!! My shirt is amazing!!! I love it, it has to be one of the nicest rewards from a KS I've gotten!! Beautiful quality, and the fabric is perfect. Can't wait till I can get more. Congrats!

      I moved so I would like to update my address. Thanks.

      Oops! Only realizing now that I forgot the extra $25 to ship to N.S., Canada.

      Solutions?

    5. Creator Cath 'Srimech' Belsten on August 6, 2012

      * and sizes ;)

    6. Creator Cath 'Srimech' Belsten on August 6, 2012

      Congratulations! I must admit I've already designed my first dress! I'd love to have it made :) Please could you let me/us know when we can start ordering/prices etc! Thanks and well done :D

    7. Creator Mary Huang & Jenna Fizel on August 2, 2012

      @Amanda And for now you can have a whole virtual closet! ;D

    8. Creator Amanda the Doodler on August 2, 2012

      Someday when my doodle art makes it big I'll have a whole closet full of my designs. Yay!!!

    9. Creator Mary Huang & Jenna Fizel on August 2, 2012

      @Forrest We've considered sew-your-own, but you'd be surprised by how difficult it actually is to sew jersey. You need some special machines and a lot of practice to do it without stretching the fabric.

      Since printing on the fabric is already quite expensive, you might be greatly disappointed by trying to sew it yourself.

    10. Creator Forrest Oliphant on August 2, 2012

      Very nice! I'd really like a sew-my-own option... could you do that with a lower pledge level?

    11. Creator Mary Huang & Jenna Fizel on July 31, 2012

      Hurray! Thank you everyone! :D We'll be figuring out logistics for fulfilling rewards (and how to make the site work faster). On Saturday we can start sending surveys through Kickstarter to get the necessary info.

      For now, keep making designs! :)

    12. Creator Andrew Plumb on July 31, 2012

      Yaay! Goal met!

      Now to build some margin in there, make it a solid win. :-)

    13. Creator Ahmed Ewing on July 30, 2012

      Turns out my problem was a video chipset driver issue that was resolved by updating to the latest version. Thanks!

    14. Creator Jared Zwicker on July 30, 2012

      I am using Chrome. A better way to describe it would be that the cursor drags the image from one spot on the image inside the square. Sometimes this spot is near the edge of the photo, meaning if it were near the top, I am unable to slide the image up very much before hitting the edge of the square and the image reverting to its original position. I will send a screen cap for the scaling.

    15. Creator Mary Huang & Jenna Fizel on July 30, 2012

      @Jared All uploaded photos get scaled so that the shorter side matches the maximum height on the garment. This way, if you upload a panorama, you can slide it over to get the part you want.
      Will you send me a screencap so I can see the specific problem you're having? email mary(at)constrvct.com

      Are you using Firefox? I've noticed the "sticking" might be lag, and Firefox is a lot slower than Chrome. We will ponder a work around, although the problem might solve itself once Firefox releases more updates to catch up to Chrome.

    16. Creator Jared Zwicker on July 30, 2012

      I have the same question as Matt about scaling: Some photos I have a really large, so only a corner of the photo shows up on the dress. Scaling it down would be great - rather than having to edit the photos in Photoshop and making it right via trial and error.

      Also, dragging to reposition the image is troublesome. The mouse seems to "stick" making it hard to get it in the right spot.

    17. Creator Mary Huang & Jenna Fizel on July 30, 2012

      @Ahmed The site should work for you on Firefox. Try it again, sometimes it can be slow.
      Or, use Chrome. https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/

      There is a small percentage of computers that have graphics cards that don't work with WebGL. It is also more problematic on older computers. :P It's hard to be on the bleeding edge.

    18. Creator Mary Huang & Jenna Fizel on July 30, 2012

      @Matt Not sure scaling a photo smaller would work, since there would be empty space around the edges? You can send us a message if you have a specific photo and we can look at it.

    19. Creator Claus Schioldann von Eyben on July 30, 2012

      Is that a Canon dye printer you are using?

      Cheers
      Claus

    20. Creator Mary Huang & Jenna Fizel on July 30, 2012

      @E.T. Sure, you are welcome to do that. We'll note it so you get both!

    21. Creator E. T. Young on July 30, 2012

      Would it be possible to get a dress and hypercube earrings by pledging $45 more than the dress amount?

    22. Creator Mary Huang & Jenna Fizel on July 29, 2012

      The site works best in the latest stable release of Chrome. It relies on WebGL which is not supported by IE8. The site should be usable in Firefox 4 and above. WebGL can also be enabled in Safari by showing the Develop menu (via the Advanced tab) and checking EnableWebGL.

    23. Creator Ahmed Ewing on July 29, 2012

      Anyone else having trouble getting the website to function properly? I successfully created my account using the Kickstarter code, and I can upload images, but I can't actually create a design (in Firefox 14 I get "loading" with red triangle overlay momentarily, then just empty whitespace; in IE8 I get a static grey "loading" box forever).

    24. Creator Matt Stortz on July 29, 2012

      Yah, I love wearing Tshirts, but a dress shirt would be amazing! Is there anyway to scale a photo smaller on the CONSTRVCT website? Only 6 more days! Get the word out people!

    25. Creator Karen on July 27, 2012

      Glad to know you don't have to use your own image (copyright issues or whatever). I'm not the best photographer...

    26. Creator Andrew Plumb on July 25, 2012

      +1 for men's dress shirts! Short- and long-sleeved, if you please?

      Hmmm... Custom 3DP buttons on the shirt? ;-)

    27. Creator Jakesmiley on July 25, 2012

      OK, now I've upped to backing for a shirt. Now I have to figure out a good print...

    28. Creator Mary Huang & Jenna Fizel on July 25, 2012

      @Jakesmiley Our second request for men's dress shirts! For every n number of people who make a request, it is n times more likely we will do it. ;D

    29. Creator Jakesmiley on July 25, 2012

      I made a token backing so I could tell you this: if you EVER start doing men's dress shirts...you will bankrupt me.
      Here's to dreaming. :)

    30. Creator Mary Huang & Jenna Fizel on July 25, 2012

      @Alexandre There are plenty of places that you can get a t-shirt if you just want a t-shirt. But you won't find any place that will print an image onto organic cotton, and then sew it so the pattern goes all the way around. A few brands do similar digital designs, but not custom, and they are about the same price or higher.

      Hope you'll have fun making some virtual designs no matter what!

    31. Creator Alexandre Jouan on July 25, 2012

      i like the idea... but $99 for a T shirt? come on!

    32. Creator ShimmerGeek on July 20, 2012

      I'm so excited about this project! I'm definitely going to get myself a NASA dress ;)

    33. Creator Marian De Kleermaeker on July 19, 2012

      Cool! Project of the day and on the homepage!!! You go guys!!!

      @Derek It looks like there are some custom sock places. http://www.spiritsocks.com/ http://www.sockprints.com/home

      I don't know if the quality can be better? Maybe there is some sort of magical sock-knitting machine.

    36. Creator Derek Lyon on July 16, 2012

      I know people would who would go crazy over some kick-ass create your own socks. If that is plausible...

    37. Creator Mary Huang & Jenna Fizel on July 16, 2012

      @v1sual.3rr0r Great tip! I like leggings too.

      We would have to find some place that prints on the spandex/lycra stuff. Black Milk is doing a larger quantity at a time, so it's a little harder when you intend to do one offs.
      (If anyone knows a place, please share the details!)

    38. Creator v1sual.3rr0r on July 16, 2012

      I think you should introduce high quality leggings. I know, you may be thinking, ugh leggings. But places like BlackMilk prove that people love leggings if they have a cool design/print to them.

    39. Creator Jaye Foo on July 13, 2012

      This is gonna be so much fun!

    40. Creator Scott Kane Stukel on July 9, 2012

      Pure brilliance! Best of luck ladies.

    41. Creator Barry Enderwick on July 6, 2012

      Would love to see this on dress shirts and t-shirts for men.
