    Jul 30, 2008, 2:44 PM - Joker Hexagon Fabric Print Interest #1

    I've found a company that specializes in large scale digital fabric printing. They made a custom all over print jacket for a theater production at my university so i know their stuff is top of the line. I'm scheduled to speak with a sales rep soon so I would like to give him some numbers. To have this work, I need real interest and commitment. A huge company is not going to waste their time to print me 1 square yard of fabric. If everyone pulls together, we can get a good deal. I'm also planning on sewing up shirts to sell on eBay or to anyone who doesn't feel comfortable sewing....I know this will be considerably cheaper than the $700 shirts or pants going on eBay...with that being said, they wont be $35 either!!!

    Thanks,
    Kody

    Sounds interesting. I have been looking myself for a company to do this. Have you got your pattern yet?

    Ya, I got the pattern from FettFan54. It is VERY screen accurate! I don't think he made it himself, but I could be wrong. Someone was obviously gracious enough to give it away. I saw some lady trying to sell the pattern for $45!!! Lemme know if you are interested as I want to start a tally.

    Do you have any guesses on about how much it might be for a couple yards?

    Yea I am very interested pending price. I would want enough to make at least two shirts (and I want you to make me two shirts...)

    Here are two patterns that someone on the RPF posted, the first one is what it should look like on a blue shirt, and the last one is the true pattern but larger with repeating (as it was really hard to get the first oneto line up). Also the 2nd one has new tiles in it that aren't in the first pattern and is more accurate. One side of the hex should be about an inch long to give you an idea of scale.

    Ok, that one looks pretty good. I have another pattern that FettFan54 posted over in the cargo hold. You guys just tell me which one you think looks better.

    Pending price, obviously, I would be interested in 3-4 yards to make my own shirt.

    What kind of material are you looking at?

    I would also be interested in 2 or 3 yards, pending cost.

    I think FettFan's pattern is too uniform, if you look at the real shirt that is a lot of randomness to it. His follows a very basic pattern. He did a great job on it but it's not as accurate as it could be. Also his color is a bit off.

    Awesome! The fabric will be 100% cotton if everything goes as planned. I don't have an accurate quote right now, but it will obviously be cheaper in bulk.

    Ok so here is the updated pattern once again. The guy on the RPF (jarvis) has been great in updating the pattern to be more accurate. Also he posted a large sized file for me so you could get it printed. So here it is.

    Man. That is getting awfully close.

    Is it just me though, or does the shirt look more blue than white? When I look at this pattern, it seems "bright". If the patterns inside the hexes were bigger, it would appear "darker". I think the size of the hexes are good.

    Ya, I'm an RPF member, and I noticed you alerted them about this thread! Thanks for that! It would be great to get a ton of people on this as it will be LOADS cheaper to order around 150-200 yds opposed to 50 or so....That is a ton of fabric, but everywhere I look people are begging for this at a reasonable price. Sithcamaro and others have amazing products (I love that guy's stuff), but a $500 (saw one sold for $970!!) shirt is not even in my vocabulary.

    Awesome!! Thanks for the bigger pattern!! I was really close to photoshoping it last night, but I decided to work on my 3:10 to Yuma project. Glad I didn't!

    Just an fyi, when resizing things (photoshop)

    for some reason, the algorythm for raising the DPI of a photo, is much better than the algoryghm for 'scaling'.

    So if you take a 500 x 500 image, with dpi of 72 (screen, jpg etc) rais its dpi to 300-500 you will get a much crisper picture than if you do a scale / size on it.

    Just an fyi for anyone doing this sort of formatting etc.

    I was looking at reference pic after reference pic, and it seems we truly do have a winner. In the jail scene, you can clearly notice all the hexagons that are in our pattern. The colors of the smaller pattern that was posted are nearly spot on with the fabric being light blue and the hexagons darker. I can take color samples from that pattern and apply it to the larger one.

    Would also be interested in this fabric !!!
    Everything would be depending on price - but then I would be looking at at least 3 yards and maybe more.

    I'd be the one making my shirts - if possible

    Yea as I said the above main pattern is too light, it is ment to be printed on a blueish colored material. Your best bet would be to find material that is close to that light bluish purple color and have it printed on that rather then pay to have the shirt printed in two colors (as that would drive the price up considerably!).

    i think this one fits the bill if you compare it to the image of Heath above.

    in fact, it looks very close indeed

    I disagree I think the Fettfan pattern is too uniform and if you look closely at the real shirt the patten is much more random that his. I am not saying his isn't nice but it's not 100% accurate. Also his is missing some of the tiles from the original. I think jarvis's patten is as close to the real deal as possible. He is updating his based on pictures taken of the screen used costume seen in person not just from the movie.
