Just Wondering [Dec. 9th, 2004|11:00 pm]
wear your obsessions.

I was just wondering if there's any news about this idea? I really hope so since it's a great idea (And great t-shirts.), but I understand of busy schedules have got in the way.

the final pics and phrases will probably be posted this weekend sometime. or maybe early next week. it just depends on what all i have going on. then y'all will be able to vote.

in 5.5 hours you can no longer submit items for his round. so if there's anything you want to put in last minute, do it now!

this is just a reminder that you can't submit pics or phrases after september 15. so you've got one week. you can post them in this post or the previous one.

and if you feel the urge to pimp....give into it!

so much for waiting til next week. [Sep. 4th, 2004|02:09 pm]
wear your obsessions.

so i'm starting this now because, well, i can. :)

you can submit pics and/or phrases. try to keep phrases at 25 characters or less. phrases should also be somewhat dom-related.
example: i made a shirt for myself a few months back with a pic of dom on the front and the phrase "i need to be myself" on the back. the phrase is from oasis' "supersonic", which dom sang at torn.

i'm going to allow members to submit pics though wednesday, september 15. then it will be on to voting!

so this is for the kickoffCollapse )

you can either post your pic or a link to your pic in a comment. please don't post hotlinked pics! please host them yourself!
and for right now i'm not limiting the number of items you can submit.

however, the more members, the better this thing will work. so keep on pimpin'!
i'll probably kick off the first design process early next week. the first "topic" will be my choice, but all the ones following will be up to y'all.

so in light of what is going on this month the first topic will be..

so start going through your pic files and pick out a few of your favorites so that you'll be ready when i make the post next week. but it could be this weekend, depending on how excited i get. :)

and since photobucket is now working:

this was the nearly-final design that i used to create the shirts i showed you in the previous post.

so now you've pretty much seen the 3 major steps that go into this process. hopefully this post and the previous one have cleared up any questions on how this is going to work. if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

to give you a better idea of where this is going... [Sep. 2nd, 2004|05:59 pm]
wear your obsessions.

this is the image i used when creating the design for the shirts i made for writer_in_black and barefootatkheb.

i'll post a pic of the design before it was completely finalized as soon as my photobucket account goes back up. but in the mean time, these are the final products.
click the thumbnails to see the larger images.

(i'm not sure why the text looks crooked in this pic as i made sure that it was strait before i sent it. i'm pretty sure it's just the pic.) thanks kheb!

don't forget that you must join this comm to participate and buy.
we're just a few members away from 20!

lets see if we can get this thing rollin'. [Sep. 1st, 2004|10:40 pm]

everyone likes to flaunt their loyalties. and by everyone, i mean me. :)
and since actor-centric shirts are hard to come by, i decided to make them. this is where you come in. i'll start off the first shirt design "topic", but after that it will be up to you.

so here's how it will work:
1) i'll create a poll so that i can see what y'all are most interested in putting on your shirts. it can be anything from actors to frequently used fandom phrases to fandom jokes. for right now, i want to keep things LotR related. if enough people are interested, i would be willing to open it up to other fandoms later on.
2) once we determine a topic, you can submit pics and/or short phrases for consideration. unless this thing gets too big, there will be no limit on how many items you can submit. i will then select the top 4 or 5 pics and phrases that i think will work best in a design.
3) i'll make another poll so that members can choose the pic (and possibly phrase)that they want to be made into a design.
4) i will then make several designs that members can vote on.

once the final design is chosen, it's off to the presses! and actually, the presses are in my room. :p
theses shirts will be silk screened, not iron-ons.

please note:
steps 3 and 4 will be locked. this way, only members have a say in the shirts and not someone that isn't really interested. i will also be able to have a better idea of who is seeing the designs and how many might be ordering shirts. this brings me to another point: please do not use my designs (even discarded designs) without asking. most likely, i will give you the ok if you ask.

after the final design has been chosen, it will be available to order for 2 weeks. after that, it will be discontinued, as the process will have started over.

the price will include the following:
1) shirt ($5-8)
2) shipping ($2-5?)
3) profit ($2)

so the shirts could run anywhere from $9-15.
note: as much as i would like to make this profit free, i need to make a little so that it is worth my time. i'll make a post about payment later on.

this is all fairly tentative as i'm still working out possible kinks. please check back for possible changes. i need at least 20 members in this community before i officially kick it off and get things started. however, if there isn't much interest i have no problem admitting defeat and deleting this community.

i really think that this could be alot of fun!
