The 64D T-Shirt Discussion

Posted by flashback on Feb. 2, 2013, 6:07 p.m.

HEY! If you want to order a T-Shirt, go to Acid's blog right here!

Let's try this again, but with more being on topic. Offenders will be dealt with swiftly and without mercy.

Quote: firestormx
acid suggested that 64D make t-shirts and have people wear them to promote the site. He said we should use this as a way to generate money, but didn't explicitly say to sell the shirts, so I'm not sure how this would help make money.

But that's why he's the marketing genius, and I'm just the guy who keeps spelling genius as genious.

Anyway, this is totally not going to happen, but I think a solid coloured crimson 64D logo (we don't really have an official one) would look cool on the front of a black t-shirt. And on the back, written across the upper back in white text, would just be some slogan. There could be a handful of different shirts with different slogans.

"Driven by lazyness"

"Member ID #2"

"Hand coded in front of a live audience"

And so on. Basically a collection of "64D memes" (I just heard you grind your teeth and cringe) and sub-banner text (I don't know what it's called).

The idea of 64D apparel has been around for like 8 years, but I thought I'd bring this idea up, to see if anyone would actually be interested in a shirt from 64D (I will not make one, but my ego will feel good), and what you think would be cool.

Well, I threw this together REALLY quick because every time the subject of tshirts is brought up, the topic gets derailed and nobody ends up designing anything or doing anything about it:

There is NO MARKUP on those shirts - bare minimum cafepress prices.

If someone finds a cheaper site, I'll upload there too. XD

You could also check out Printfection.

I like the way this blue looks:

If someone wants to make a better shirt, they should do it. I'm a man of simple tastes and prefer a shirt with just one giant logo in the middle. (Example)

And it only took like 3 minutes to make.

I like the black and blue. On the back should still have a slogan on it, though. "Driven by lazyness" with the y scratched out and an i put in still sounds good to me.

A white tee with the current 64D logo on it, with the little red quotes under it, or maybe on the back. Could make a series of those that way.

I'd dig it.

Keep in mind that two-sided shirts cost more to print.

I still stand by my suggestion for a chicken in a red box with the words "Don't feed" underneath.

Acid 11 years, 3 months ago is the best BULK site I've come across, pricing wise.

But I would need a legit number of people interested.

It would be the design that chiken keeps pushing - on the new site it actually would be REALLY cheap for double printing - under $15 per shirt w/ one color per side AND free shipping.
