    Apr 27, 2009, 9:27 AM - CALLING ALL ARTISTS! WE NEED YOUR SHIRT DESIGNS! #1

    Hi guys! We are right on the verge of another official TDH shirt but we would also like to offer a one-shot shirt for 2009 as well! However, we are flat out of ideas and would love to see your ideas! Please post your ideas here and if we pick one of your ideas we will make sure you get 3-4 shirts for yourself! While these shirt sales don't generate a lot of revenue, they do help support our efforts at events and conventions as well as help support the site itself! So lets see what you have got!

    Ver cool!

    How is the art going to be produced in the shirt? color? solid whites? etc...

    This will determine what will be the best way to sketch out the design.

    You can put your artwork to any shirt color EXCEPT BLACK. Your artwork must be of a type that works with screen printing (solid colors, no gradients) and shouldn't exceed 6 colors (fewer colors the better).

    Explain "one-shot shirt"
    I have a few ideas I may work up this week.

    Also is there a deadline or cut-off date?

    Art, is there any more brief, i.e, incorporation of TDH wording logo in design?

    Not sure if I completely follow you, but here are all of the "official" incantations of the TDH logo.

    One-shot, meaning we will offer one run of it and retire the design.

    We don't have a cut-off yet.

    I have always been partial to my Bantha Skull shirt that was part of a run done on tubfc listserve ages and ages ago. Mine is well past it's prime and needs to be retired, but not before I have a replacement! The addition of the TDH logo on the back would be a big bonus.

    Yup. I just cut another of those cups in half this morning so I could get a fresh scan off it! Just so no one thought it was my ingenious idea to put this on the shirt, and to give credit where it is due, obi-sean is the one who suggested it.

    I don't know if we should leave it plain like I have it or try to modernize it a bit with some additional artwork... Thoughts?

    I know a thousand people are probably going to groan at this, but two things TDH has always shied away from are black based shirts and the Bantha skull because we felt both had been done to death and then some. Maybe the time has come to break one of those traditions (still... no black shirts!!!) and do a bantha-skull shirt.

    Actually... we already have that in the works but there have been some unforseen delays that will probably mean no bantha skull this time, but trust me... I have already seen the preliminary work and when we finally release it, it will be like no bantha skull you have seen before!

    I had this design? awhile back.. i was going to tweak it but your feel free to use the concept. It was going to be 4 colors, on the back i would dumped the text and do something fancy with the front although, i had to keep it to one side to keep costs down. Min colors is probably the best to keep costs down anyways, Also I'm sure you guys are looking for something more aggressive.
