As soon as jack can get em done... I don't have this in vector format as I dint know how to use/create things using vectors which is what is required for designing/printing. So these will just be just standard ideas/concepts and it would be awesome if oomkool could remake them in vector format. If not we'll have to wait for jack to talk to a t shirt company to make the design work

Can do...will sit over the weekend and convert them. I have the Alien logo in vector already so it's just the Invasion which I need to convert.

More ideas for tshirts would be welcome, the wider the range, the larger the potential client base. I'd also like a camo tshirt with the logo on it (Alien Army).

See. I thought the camo was a cool idea too. But nobody else liked it.

I think itd be cool if we got a name on the back and then for the number itd be the serial number or something. It would deff be different and I would deff buy one.

300-599 $0.85 $0.90 $1.00 $1.10 $1.15 $1.25 $1.35 $1.45

2nd location
1 CLR 2 CLR 3 CLR 4 CLR 5 CLR 6 CLR 7 CLR 8 CLR
36-71 $1.95 $2.50 $3.25 $3.95 $4.65 $5.30 N/A N/A
72-143 $1.30 $1.55 $1.90 $2.25 $2.55 $2.95 $3.45 $3.75
144-299 $0.85 $1.05 $1.20 $1.35 $1.54 $1.72 $1.85 $2.00
300-599 $0.65 $0.70 $0.80 $0.90 $0.95 $1.05 $1.15 $1.25

The setup charge is about $70 per color (because oomkool is willing to do art work for free)
The shirt itself will cost about $4 and a buck for shipping.
If I do 60 of one I will sell maybe 45 before I don't have the right sizes, and interest runs out. The Alien Army just isn't that big yet and only a small percentage will buy a shirt.

So $4 for printing, $5 for the shirt w/shipping, $1 for the artwork another $1 to ship the shirts to me. I'm into the shirts $11. Times 60 = $660 - I can sell 45 because of this site and going to events (forget for now the cost of the event) I have to get $15 for them, Almost $20 shipped, (bubble envelope is over a buck) just to get my money back - if I keep them to one color. Making money, what has to be done to stay in business so I can keep making guns, T-Shirts don't help me with that. I wish it did.

I want to do some shirts, because I like having them available, but more shirts aren't better. I'll probably do one for Cup and one for Huntington Beach. First, I like smokeage idea of the crossed guns, but one Indy and one Invasion.

AND I really like the 360 shirt - colors looked great and different from everything else, has a custom look- because it is. I sell custom sewn shirts for $5 more than what these should be. AND I'm picking up more of the 360's at Cup. It's great that some want something new now. But to say that the 360 shirt is bad - that can, and will be, said about any shirt, jersey... anything that is done.
Just the way it is.
I do appreciate advice as I think 95% of the posts are from players that want to help. Add that advice like "lower you gun prices" "advertise more" 'Make better - shirts..." or whatever, isn't all that helpful. It costs a lot of money to buy market share - a lot, I mean a whole lot. Alien will live only on the strength of the products. The way to kill Al is try to outspend those that now outproduce us.
But hey, I'm here, making new guns and many are gone - including some very big companies that tried to outspend the competition. Slow and steady, that's the race I'm running. Again, wish it were different, wish I could roll out the mechanical I've worked on for 3 years - it's killer! Wish I could roll out the spool, small, light, efficient. But they will get done when they get done. Slow and steady.

Alrighty we can do 1 of two things. We can wait for oomkool to remake the design in vector format then sen thatto custom ink (if he agrees to ). Or we can have custom ink do it.... I personally feel better with oomkool doing it
Cuz idk how good custom inks work is.

I don't really know how the printing/t-shirt industry works in the USA but can't you find a company like Kohn or Animal to do the T-shirts and then they sell them directly, like they do the jerseys? I would guess that they could do an initial 20 or so and then see how it goes from there. I reckon the Invasion might just sell better than the Indys so surely more people will eventually own Aliens, so then more people will eventually want t-shirts and other Alien goodies. No design fees, no setup fees, no manufacturing fees or packaging. People just go straight to a 3rd party and get their gear from there...
