I mentioned in a previous post the possibility of creating a fannish shirt. After discussing it a bit and playing around with ideas, Nic came up with an idea for an original design that is really fucking gorgeous, if I do say so myself. He's not fannish at all and will be buying one of the shirts for himself because he likes the design so much, and I will be buying one for mostly fannish reasons. The beauty of it is that it's really its own concept but it still can be interpreted fannishly.

We also discovered that we could roll different shirt styles and brands into the same goal, which is awesome. That means we can satisfy people who want the girly cut shirts, people who want larger sizes, and people who want to tell American Apparel to suck it (though the red is a bit darker because Hanes doesn't have the same color selection). Because there's a limit of five products that can be part of the same campaign, we were only able to offer alternate colors in the American Apparel shirts.

Yammering aside, I unveil to you The Bandit King, a T-shirt you will never have to explain away, because the non-fannish concept is provided for you in the title.

Order One Now!

If you have any questions, let me know!

And please share this post or the link to the shirt with those who may be interested!

Please direct comments/questions to [ profile] teprometo's original post. Thanks!

Please share this post if you're the type of person who shares posts.

As lots of you know, Knerkle does a significant amount of design work. He recently bought a crowdsourced T-shirt and loved the experience so much, he wants to make one of his own. We thought it would be a great opportunity to have an experienced T-shirt designer make subtle shipping shirts. So many shipping shirts are either really blatant (which embarrasses a lot of people) or are just poor quality (either in design or in construction).

Nic is thinking the T-shirts would probably end up around $18, which is more than I pay for my flimsy Target T-shirts, so I know that's a scary price tag, but they'd be lady-cut American Apparel T-shirts, which are usually $20-$25 plain, because they're ridiculously comfortable and durable. And they do real silkscreening, so you are paying for a quality product.

So basically, I'm trying to figure out how many people would be interested. This website is like Kickstarter in that people will only be charged/the shirts will only be made if a certain number are sold, so it doesn't make sense to go to the work of designing the shirts if there won't be enough interest to get them made.

This isn't a thing Nic is doing to make money. The most he'd make is probably $25, and he charges at least $80 an hour when he bills for design work. He's just excited about doing the crowdsource thing, and this is a great way to both satisfy his curiosity and bring extra joy to fannish people's lives.

TELL ME YOUR THOUGHTS! Concerns, suggestions, and enthusiasm welcome!

If this is a success and a good experience, there is a possibility of branching out into other fandoms/ships/whatever.

ETA: So lots of you are pissed about using American Apparel T-shirts, which I understand in theory, because misogyny and douchebaggery is not okay. In practice, however, printing on guilt-free textiles is not accessible. The only other options for shirts on Teespring are made using slave labor, or the next closest thing. American Apparel, while still full of ethical issues, at least pays their workers, and the product is much better. So I mean, go with your conscience, but Hanes is not an ethical upgrade.

So, I joined this thing. I'm always making icons and I thought, what the heck? Why not join an icontest community where I get to make pretty mini-pics of BRADLEY JAMES!! Seems a good use of my non-writing time, right?

OK, so now that I joined, I need a bit of help from my flist! Obviously, I can't tell you which icons are mine, but if you could GO HERE and VOTE I'd be very, very appreciative <3

Greetings my lovely flist! I'd like to take a moment to pimp out the [ profile] paperlegends authors still in need of cheerleaders. I've been lucky enough to have plenty of support for my own Big Bang Odyssey but there are a lot of authors who could still use a bit of encouragement.

If you haven't already signed up, would you consider heading over to the Cheerleader Request post and volunteering to cheer on one (or more) of this year's participants? Every author has different needs and their individual posts reflect that. Check them out, someone needs what YOU have to offer <3
