★The JPlop T-Shirt★

Postby boinsie » Tue Apr 12, 2016 7:55 am

Okay, so, it started off an April Fools Day thing, but I'm trying to figure out the particulars of it becoming an reality: the JPlop T-Shirt! :yahoo:

There are a lot of moving parts to this. Ordering shirts on an at-will basis, one-at-a-time would allow for members to choose a custom color for their shirt, but will result in shirts overall being more expensive. On the other hand, if 10 or more of us can agree to one shirt color, we can get a first run of shirts done at an appreciably lower price.
After doing some investigating, I've come up with two options:

1. 3-color silk-screened JPlop logo* on an Indigo Blue Gildan Ultra T-Shirt
Image
If we order at least 10, it's $18.69 per shirt (plus shipping from my house to yours--if in the USA probably ~$2.50 for first class, if outside the USA, more). If somehow we want 20 or more of them, the price plummets even further, to $13.31 each (though I do not see this happening--we're a small forum).

2. 3-color silk-screened JPlop logo on whichever of these Gildan Ultra T-Shirt colors you want
Image
http://www.customink.com/styles/gildan- ... hirt/04600
(I believe this basically includes all member colors.)

These would all be available for order as one-offs, at a slightly higher $24.50 per shirt.
--

So! Given these options, please post in here (or if you prefer, PM me) stating your intent/preference! Do you want in on this?? :rock:

(*The end logo will probably have the address to the website on it underneath. I haven't decided if it should be in text or my handwriting yet. Thoughts?)

I guess I need to check my privilege, because to me, $18.69 is not significantly less than $24.50. Especially when you consider the flexibility and convenience you're getting for that extra six bucks.

I happen to agree, It's such a small difference (in a way) that I'd rather option two!
I'm so happy you're actually trying to go through with this, this is so awesome. :heart:

The address should probably be something matching or similar to the "jplop" in style, so handwriting might work better?

Would it work with a red background?

You would lose the appeal of the logo on a red shirEat.

It would pop more on a blue or green shirt since its opposite on the color wheel.
I personally think a light shade of blue or grey would be nice. You want the logo to stand out.

Maybe instead of red do like one of the darker reds or something... Like, see what it the logo looks like on different shades of red and if any look good, do that. If not we can.. um... figure something out ^^"

I can just make the logo in blue for reddish shirts?

So, it appears that the resounding response is, "Who cares about price, gimme color!! 8) "
I'll figure some of the remaining niddling details out tomorrow, and hopefully post purchase links!

ALRIGHT!
Sorry for the delay! :/
I've got a t-shirt place all set up. There were some complications involved: after looking closely into the specifics of all of these sites, it turns out that nowhere does one-off silk-screening. Many places make it seem as though they do without outright saying that they don't during the ordering process, but when you read their FAQ it's apparent that there are minimums to do silk screenings, and that otherwise it'll be digital printing. That makes sense, given that a physical silk screen has to be created for each color you're wanting to use, which just doesn't make sense monetarily if you're only getting one shirt.
So, these links will actually lead to digitally printed logos. This place (and their sister company, Traxler Custom Printing), offers a ton of colors in the Gildan Ultra Tshirt and it gets really good reviews, so fingers crossed. If you want to wait to see the results before ordering, I'll be receiving my shirt in couple of weeks, and I'll post here about it when it arrives!

Cranberry JPlop logo
Blue Jplop logo
Cranberry JPlop logo for use on black shirts
Blue JPlop logo for use on black shirts

They're $25 per shirt. If you get two or more of the same color logo, price decreases to $23 per shirt. It goes without saying that I'm making no commission on this. :thumbs-up:

If you want any other logo colors, let me know. If you want to get it on any other shirt types, you should be able to choose them on their lefthand site menu. If you have any issues, let me know. :)

feels pretty interesting. The shirt itself is of fine material, The print itself seems to be done well, but I'm yet to put the shirt into a wash, so we'll have to see how it stands after a wash. But so far, pretty good!

Shirt!

The actual shirt material isn't quite as soft as I'd hoped, but to be fair, we chose them for the color options. XD

If the material is what I'm thinking of, it will soften after a few washes. It's not as soft as something off the rack because off-the-rack clothes are pre-washed, to make them more attractive to shoppers while they're still on the rack. The manufacturers don't bother doing that with bulk t-shirts.
