I think we would be looking at that yes, and I would probably barely be covering the craft costs. These will be hand blown, but I may offer a machine-made, (i.e. normal pub glass) version with a transfer instead of etching, as I know not everyone can afford much for a unique, one of a kind thing. :)

Surely the person who's being quoted should get something. Like a golden name or some other free special privilege.

Gecko: The poll should be checkboxes - I'd be tempted by more than one of those!

A friendly reminder from our Exiled Dear Leader Falsey:

Tshirts with memes on them are strawberry floating tragic, and anyone who even considers an lcd meme cycling tshirt needs to seriously consider suicide.

I think when I set up the shop, that should be along a banner at the top in massive letters.

Well this went pretty well. Over 80 vouches. :)

Production is scheduled for the following:

    • T-shirts
    • Mugs
    • Larger Glass
    • Hugo Shirt

Manufacture is wk. beginning 14th July

Stocking is wk. beginning 21st July


Please PM me to make a pre-order of the Larger Glass or Mug, as these are pretty solidified in my head. I will post designs end of this week. Quantities will be very limited. Prices to be announced pending negotiating subcontracts and will be what you would expect for this sort of thing.

I will probably start with regular or large, but maybe we need to do a census.

You may PM your size requirements if you want, I won't tell anyone. :)

At first my costs will be pretty high (i.e. my material cost not sale price), as I can't order bulk to these quantities anyway. I will probably find the best plain thick 100% cotton shirts I can find locally and then buy a bunch.

GRcade shirt will be in white or red at first. Hugo probably black or a navy/dark grey, not sure.

Screen printer possibly secured for the T-shirts, get those pre-orders in! I'm looking at 10-20 units for first run, depends what I can afford to blow on this.

Are people prepared to wait on lead time for these, i.e. you would pay upfront? Tbh you would be doing that for any kind of custom merch.

I can produce samples for each merch, and then post up HD videos and plenty of hi res photos so you will know exactly what you're getting. :)

Looked through the Archive for some inspiration. Could we have this as a potential sticker design? Could have a competition for best public placement of them. :)

Quite possible I can print the shapes on vinyl and then laserjet onto that, I'm not sure, will need to look into a process for full colour stickers. Unless I can make a stencil version, but it would not be discreet applying it in public lol, complex viynl transfers take a little care. An ordinary sticker would be better.

You have to be careful with the shirts, no one is going to wear it places if it is too vulgar. We are all nerds, not gangstas. Or memes must be civilized.
