Sumea T-Shirts

Forum: 

I am thinking of designing some wicked Sumea t-shirts sometime when I have the funds. They're pretty expensive to produce (printing and shirt costs, plus you have to produce them in numbers), so I'm curious as to how many of you would be interested in one.

I want to make a Sumea Launchpad shirt for modellers, which says "I do it with models 24 hours a day" [:)]

I'd be up for that. @:-)

I would most certainly be wanting one of those!!!

Any chance of a programmer one too?

Fuck yeah. That's funny as all hell. I will definitely be up for one.

What about motto's for programmers and all?

I mean that might fit with a programmer, but not really that easily.

"Will code for food" [;)]

That sounds reasonable I guess...

How much are the expected prices / will they be available at the or by the AGDC?

Blitz's picture

int main(){printf("Hello Sumea!
");return 0;}

or something like

hell:

while ( concious == true )
{
if ( sleepy == true )
{
ConsumeCaffeine();
sleepy = false;
}

Code();
}

if ( deadlineIsSoon )
{
Sleep( 2000 * 360 );
}
else
{
Sleep( 4000 * 360 );
}

goto hell;

CYer, Blitz

I don't think they'll be available before the AGDC (although that would have been great if it were). It'll have to wait until I have funds to do it, and I think the first printed batch won't have mottos specific to modellers/programmers, so everyone can wear it. [:)]

Why dont you make them and order them through www.zazzle.com

I had alook at Zazzle, and I'm not too sure you want to become involved with them. They have a Watersports section for the T-Shirts :D

They do have some very nice designs there. Do you know what the quality of their printing is like? The reason why I stopped buying a lot of T-Shirts is because the image tends to fade, split and just look like crap.

Just had a look around zazzle.com... They're US based, and there's a $4.99 (US) shipping charge overseas for each shirt (or $8.99 per shipment). It should be cheaper to produce shirts locally.

Souri: How about.... "I bone models." [:P]

"I spend hours skinning models..."

man.. there are a lot of bizarre art terms you could take out of context. :)

cheers

I used to play with models, but now I've lost my dongle.

Ah Smg, I don't know how well people would take that one. I think it's funny because of that though :)

Reminds me of http://www.engrish-store.com/ihatmystshir.html :D

That one is gold Pants, Best thing is, only people who are 1)into modelling/animation. and/or 2)have used sw with a dongle, will actually get that. Great one.

*falls off chair laughing* Pants, that is GOLD! @:-D

Souri,

You may want to check out CafePress.com.

It'll allow you to create custom items, based on a blank item which you can position graphics on, then set up a store-front to sell them from. Hell, you can even sell boxers and ladies lingerie! Some of these guys could buy their girlfriends a g-string that had "Bone this, baby" (maybe that's a bit x-rated) on the front! But they have t-shirts, sweat-shirts, mugs, mousepads, all sorts of stuff you can put your graphics on.

The only thing is that they're in the US and shipping times are a little longer to Australia. But they're relatively cheap, and you can always set up a store, create a few 'test' items and see what they look like on-screen for free.

cheers

Matt

It'll have to wait till I have the funds for it.. Christmas and New Years is just around the corner, and I know I'm gonna be broke after all that! I'll weigh and see what works out cheaper, doing it at a place like CafePress.com or throw local printers/materials.. I tend to think that I can get out better shirts with the latter method..

Kind of an old thread but how about,

I work, look and play with models all day. And boy does it give my hand a workout! [:p]

I'm currently working on a design at the moment (I'm keeping it simple), so hopefully I'll have about 50 shirts printed in time for the Next Wave Independant Game Developers Conference in Melbourne this year..

And the profits all go to supporting you and Sumea, right? [:p]
If i get a job this year i'll try my best to get one and i might buy someone else one [:)]

I don't think I'd be making much money from it - the aim is to make them affordable as possible, and I'd certainly would have to sell most of them to recuperate the costs of making them..
