Forum t-shirts? a fund raising idea

No, not "Greenbat you useless bastard" comments. Instead, any helpful suggestions, bugs, ideas etc. I have very little (i.e, none) experience with forum running, so help is very much appreciated

Took Gus's artwork into town to get a shirt printed, sadly theres too much detail for his printing setup to cope with.
We'll have to see if the online suppliers can do them.

That's what I was worried about - Could he not have worked from an 'inverted' version ?
ie. Black on a White background

Also, I can scale it up and cut out some of the definition - that'd make it easier.

His software is not as sophisticated as I thought, he'd have to click on every segment and set its colour. it would take forever to do. He has got a contact who could print it out and cut out as a silhouette ready for printing but the cost is more than we wanted to pay.

Is the T-Shirt idea still being considered?

The folk I use for t-shirts will do a small design on the front left tit, and a large design on the back of the shirt, for less than a tenner a shirt (initial uploading fee per design 3.49) The design can be different front and rear. They only do white (pish), grey (somewhat gay, generally) and black (the proper colour [with a "U"] for a t-shirt) and sizes up to XXL (iirc).

A square image of 3000 x 3000 pixels is ideal, as it will be reduced to fit either design area (small front, large rear) and I do believe they can do photographs, so details shouldn't be lost.

Apart from the "iron-on" feel and look of the printed area, which soon goes away after a few washes, I think the t-shirts can look good, so long as the image background is black, to suit the t-shirt fabric.

I'm having a couple of new "yeti-monster" ones printed shortly (with the new "eclipse" logo) and I'll probably have a "Hardley- Ferguson" one done too.
If there is enough interest, I may well have some made up for the impromtu bash as well.
