Thanks for all the feedback, I'm glad so many of you have enjoyed the art!
Here are a few responses to questions/comments:
Jude: 10 points. You, too Brad O.
sharksnut and raina: We always make S, XXL, and XXXL shirts. Since it is a digital print, we can get another run made for practical prices if we run out. The black shirt is unfortunately being subcontracted from our main printer due to technical issues, and the sub has limits on what we can order, so pockets are not really an option on this one. I'm with you, I like pockets, but in past discussions I've ended up losing that topic to other staff members. If lots of other people request pockets, maybe I can change that! If we do run out of the size/design you want at the show, we can make a list and have a post-show run. (The printer must never find out that I typed that in public ... she has patience, but I don't want to make extra work for her!)
bpetheram: (and a few others) I'll TRY to get some of these with the large graphic on the front. Again, it's a subcontracted job and they apparently are not as flexible in making short run orders, but I'll try. If you want one, I'll recommend picking it up very early in the show. Mark is keeping track of some special orders, but he's so overloaded already it would be best to not take chances - get 'em early before they run out!
ToTAN96: The Deco design is based on an animated pinball machine from Sesame Street back in the day. It prominently features ThEE Black Knight, Creature, Pinbot and his Bride, and Dr. Dude. (The Space Invader is arguably a pinball character as well, but I won't press that one.) The front logo has silhouettes of pinball machines and videos. We strive to be inclusive at the show and in the shirt designs.
MAMEMAN: Yeah, me too. Unfortunately we have to stop somewhere, and printing four principal variations already has the guy who's wife will probably be handing them out doubting our friendship for putting his marriage at risk (JK). Printing on dark shirts has extra technical problems (colors don't show up unless you put a layer of white ink underneath) and adds cost, and the art would need a lot of reworking to look right on a black shirt (I'm not willing to ask the artists for even more mods after I already pressed their patience with the things we already had them rework!) This year the shirts will be the most expensive we have ever made, and some even cost us more than we will sell them for. If you really want one, I can look into cost, but it will need some kind of background color (like a white square behind the whole thing) or a bunch of the graphic won't show up right. I suspect this will really not end up looking very good, just my opinion.
Thanks again for all the feedback!
