Subject: The inthe00s t-shirts... possible designs?

Written By: ChuckyG on 06/08/06 at 7:59 pm

Here's what the design *MIGHT* look like.  It would be small on the front, and fill the entire back of the shirt.  There's a white shirt and a black shirt design.

the only problem is that these will be through CafePress and they only have a couple of black items...  I may still try and improve the white background colors

Seems like it's not hard to design a cool black shirt design.  unfortunately they have one total product in black currently, and even that is considered "beta" which makes me a little nervous. 

I guess the pressure is on me to make a color combonation on a white background that is more interesting. Here's a few more attempts

yeah, it has more of a retro feel to it.

I spent maybe 20 minutes on the layout tonight, the colors are what took me the remaining two hours.  Which is funny, because I had no ideas on how to do the design when I started.  It just fell together easily.

I like the black shirt because A) it's slimming on me, B) black shirts look great with any kind of bottoms and C) white shirts get dirty easily and if you get them wet (you're at the pool), it's a wet t-shirt contest.

Black t-shirts get my vote too, I never wear white firstly they get dirty too quick, and secondly from a totally girly fashoin point of view, with my fair skin I look like the walking dead in pale colours.
Infact red, blue, green any colour that's not pastel and not white and not PINK!!!!!!!!!

not really.  When I upload them and see how they look in the previews, I'll know better.  I only get one of each product in a store, so I can't do a shirt with a single large image on the front and then a second shirt with a small image and a large one.  I might do two stores, inthe00s and inthe00sDouble where you can choose between shirts with an image on the front/back and just one image on the front.

I also remember the last time I did one of these, the image didn't print large enough.  So I think I'll guinea pig myself, and order one first before making it available to everyone else.

ok.  I uploaded the designs tonight and ordered one in black for me, one in white for my wife (Susan).

I should get them by the end of the week, or early next week.  When they do, if they look ok, I'll give out the address to the store and you can go nuts.

This design looks really bad in a small size.  For stuff that needs a pocket design, or stickers, buttons, etc, I'm going to put just the logo like you see on the top of every page.  Since I did the final design work (with the "often imitated, never duplicated") bit at work, I'll have to wait a few days before trying to upload that one.
