    I need to know a couple of things about t-shirts and printing:

    1-Can anyone recommend a good source of tshirts in SA?
    2-Can anyone recommend a good tshirt printer in SA?
    3-Has anyone had any luck with the tshirt printing stuff that goes in colour printers and can be ironed on? Any good brands? I have some from about 7 years ago, but it was pretty crappy, but I'm assuming technology has improved in this area...

    Obviously the answers to 1 & 2 might be one and the same. I have some tshirts to (fingers crossed) organise in the next couple of weeks... ;)

    1-Can anyone recommend a good source of tshirts in SA? - other than maybe contacting a SWEAT SHOP - anyone going to Thialand? - any good dressmakers in our ranks? (hint hint)

    2-Can anyone recommend a good tshirt printer in SA? - talked to Evil Ink on that - there are several, but for value for money - hows $15-20 Emboidery sound?

    3-Has anyone had any luck with the tshirt printing stuff that goes in colour printers and can be ironed on? Any good brands? I have some from about 7 years ago, but it was pretty crappy, but I'm assuming technology has improved in this area... - er, sorry, on that one, there is NO change in the stock that Cannon and such use....and i've had the same experience... stoopid Human Companies!



    any help?


    lol

    sorry...no. Not up for making a heap of t's...I've gotta find time for my costume!!

    It might end up cheaper to buy them in bulk anyway......

    Get polo shirts with embroidery on them.
    Not that expensive, looks better & lasts longer.


    We got them for work shirts.

    you guys all had them in Parsec too, didn't you?

    they looked good - I'd like something like that, not the normal run of the mill t-shirt, something with a little pizazz.....

    and they look neat and professional too! :D

    I like the idea of polo shirts. They look smart and can be dressed up or down..

    Polo shirts are okay I guess. If that's what the people want, I'll investigate them, especially if they can be embroidered.

    I'll do both if I can ;)

    So what was the consensus on colour (for polos)...black?

    EI, I know your answer already ;)

    I think we'd all look good in lollypop pink!!

    and now, I shall be serious....
    black. with blue writing. Just like on here. It looks good - not too tacky.
    if that makes sense?
    :D

    Ok, you guys come up with an official SAFF logo. I'll do the inquiries into polo sirt costs + logo embroidery.
    Don't go beserk with colours & design, remember the harder it is the reproduce , the more expensive the shirts will be.
    Now, I can also get quotes on Car Stickers, Drink Coasters, Bomber Jackets (leather), stubbie holders.
    Hell, we'll market our own line. Any suggestions ?

    organising the EpIII midnight session is taking up all of fox's time right now.....you wouldn't believe the running around it's taking! Please don't put his name up for more!! He needs sleep!!


    I think the design at the top of this page is pretty good anyway....the SAFF logo looks cool!
    Let's not go overboard - keep it simple, that makes it cheap but not looking cheap, if that makes sense?
    :D

    I like the logo I did (well, duh ;) ). Mainly because it's just simple sans-serif text, design wise is pretty 'modern' (whatever that means), and can be easily changed to single colour.

    Here's one, obviously very lo-res. Would need to be modified to a single (easy) or two colour (easy) for embroiding. Obviously placement and size of logo could be reduced (arm? left side of chest?) for the polo shirt for those that want to be less obvious/more neat ;).

    Rough as guts mockup. Logo could be any colour (white, blue, orange, whatever):

    I'm still keen to do a 'ringer' tshirt as in the image for those that are more 'out there' ;) I think I might put a Rebels logo on one arm and imperial on the other. Doesn't need the current crap on the arm, I just put it there for something to do.

    Might get a red or yellow collar.
    Must have SAFF ID under the logo.

    Might also do an Imperial symbol on the sleeve.

    That would be better Evil

    I like the personalized ones.... maybe better to buy an imp. cog and get in sewn on the tshirt that way Rebels could have their own as well :D
