    Bump.

    If you're interested in a second run of these shirts, please indicate here.


    Also, if we have any other aspiring graphic designers out there, please feel free to work up some additional designs for consideration.

    Again, my thanx to Grimby, Obi_Wannabe & Gra-co_o_hun for their immeasurable contributions to the success of the first run of t-shirts. They were a big hit at the midnight premiere last week.

    I was hardly online the whole week this was sent to the printers -- I never got a t-shirt. LOL. Anybody got a spare XL?

    And what do they look like? I never saw a pic.

    No designs coming from me -- my spare time's going to go to a wrapper for the SCFF board, and finishing work on the Veska site over the next month.

    Oh, but if anyone wants vectors of anything, let me know. Grimby and OW already have most of my files, but I actually have a ton of really neat stuff from when I first started working on the shirts.

    Nice work, Kal-El. I particularly like the Aurabesh.

    Hmm...list of members would be a bit exclusive, though. Some people don't post on a regular basis, so obviously a lot of people would get left out. There's also the quasi-members that are primarily SCFF, those that are primarily RMFF, and then the few that migrate depending on which direction the wind is blowing.

    The Aurabesh is a bit confusing -- the layout makes it look like it should say "A Force to be Reckoned With" but instead it says "May the Force be With You." The top is also maybe a little too close to the Mountain Garrison, Pikes Peak Squad, and Mile High Squad snowcap designs -- http://www.mg501.com/home.htm

    Doh...2 crossed lightsabers -- we toyed with that idea...last year? Maybe 2 years ago for the SCFF. From 10 feet away it ends up looking like a big "X" like you're crossing out the actual design you're trying to create. Just info.

    I was looking over this thread and wanted to see what I could do.

    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v625/the_enclave/rmff.jpg

    Border: "Rocky Mountain" is A New Hope font.
    I added the rings through paint, so I'm sure they could be better looking.

    Center: "Fan Force" is Episode I font.

    Bottom: "A Force to be reckoned with" is Clone Wars font.

    Aurabesh: "Denver, Colorado" is Galactic basic font. A more analized, and proper style of Aurabesh.

    Web Address: is Times New Roman, I believe

    Colors can be whatever, as can what it says in aurabesh.

    *shrugs* just got bored and messed around. I'm sure it looks like a lot of other things, but it braches from what is the current logo.

    I tried to leave it open for printing purposes, and for opinions. :)


    Edit: It looks pretty cool with the colors inverted. *l*

    well i can move the "MTFBWY" to the top and i liked the idea of the snow caped mountans i think i could try puting an X-wing, or a sunset, or like a translucent darth vader, or something like that in there. in a bit i'll post up the new designs

    They're a little rough, but getting there. :) Just takes time. It'd be easier to make better judgements if they weren't as rough. What graphics app are you using?

    Hey There Kal-El Kenobi,
    I do have some suggestions. I have worked in the silkscreen industry for 12 yrs now and I would like to give you some professional opinions. Please understand that I am not criticizing your design composition. This is strictly from a technical stand point.
    It can be a problem to try and print soft edges like you have because the halftone dots tend to be small and they don't burn well in such a small area. I think you would have a better result with a crisp edge. Big companies can do finer halftone dots because cost is no issue to them.
    For cost efficency, it's important to know. I know we as a group probably do not have a lot of money to put into this. I would also recommend that you have a little tighter version of your x-wing, again too many soft areas. It could turn kinda muddy. Would you consider a more graphic representation just for printing friendliness.
    I sincerely hope that I am not offending you Kal-El. I just know the industry and the holes you can fall into when trying to take this kind of thing to print.
    If there is any advice I can offer or if you need a 2nd pair of eyes, please let me know.
    On a personal note: What do you think of making the sun more orange. Orange is a direct compliment to blue and it might look a little nicer.

    I hope that we are cool. :cool:
    Gra-Co
