Re: Month of June Only: BL T-Shirts

Hmmm.... I'm still up in the air about it... It's a bit...subtle. Which is good. but I have so many tee shirts already!

Thanks everyone. You still have over a week to order if you're in The States and want one.

Re: Month of June Only: BL T-Shirts

Thanks everyone, this campaign is over. We had 8 orders exactly enough to get the shorts printed. We might have had more if I had done the things Booster suggested, like posting on Facebook and doing a last week count-down, maybe next time. Expect your shirts to arrive in the next few weeks (the order will ship no later than July 17th according to booster).

With your purchases and additional donations (thanks very much, Jeff, oldcat and Top Dollar!!!), you've contributed USD$42.50 to our fund, enough to pay for 3 months of web hosting.

Thanks everyone! Post pics when you get them!

Maybe someone will organize something similar for those outside of the States?

Re: Month of June Only: BL T-Shirts

As a general note: Please let us or one of use know, in addition to complaining to the vendor, if there are problems with the product (quality, etc) so that we can guard against that in the future (PM/email one of the mods, hhh himself, me, etc).

Re: Month of June Only: BL T-Shirts

I'm not. Gilden ultra-cotton tees are suh-weet (that's American for really nice), I did t-shirt graphics and production in a small shop for a couple of years and that's all we used. We never had a complaint in that time.

It looks like the logo gets screenprinted, so no getting sweaty there like with a vinyl or other type of pressing. These should be the shizznit (that's American for really nice).

Huh, a new photo, a real printed tee and not photoshop? Can't tell, maybe they just replaced the other photo because it was the back of the shirt, which I left blank.

Gilden

That's all I need to see; of all the tee manufacturers, this is preferred by boutique and limited-production shops.  I still have a Gilden tee from Megan's Freaky Little Story album release over six years ago; it's almost as sturdy as the day I bought it.

That's a 'shop.  Look next to the left arm's eye; no wrinkle in the logo. wink  Still excited to see the final product though!

Re: Month of June Only: BL T-Shirts

My shirt arrived today and I feel very geek-chic in it! It looks exactly like the pic in the OP, very classy. smile

Pro Tip: Ignore the wash/dry instructions on the tag and use the ones CustomInk prints on the inside of the shirt to preserve the logo printing...

Wash me inside out on cold. Dry low (inside out). Wear with pride.

The blue tint is the cheap phone-cam and late-afternoon light against olive green paint. It's a matte-black tee.

Re: Month of June Only: BL T-Shirts

^^ Good tip.  I always wash and dry anything I wear against my skin inside-out, including socks.  Helps release stains better, get the fabric softener where it will be most appreciated and prevents obvious wrinkles from being obvious.  Also, as the print shop points out, it protects the screen printing.

Still looking forward to receiving my tee.

Re: Month of June Only: BL T-Shirts

I have to say... coming home, taking off my sweat-soaked work tee, drying off and putting this on...

GEEK-CHIC, BABY!!!

Gilden still uses neck tags (really, a-holes? Clue, it's 2016 3rd quarter). Scissors near the neck-line worked, it took me less than 5 minutes to pull the remaining nylon fibers out (use fingernails or tweezers. The last pull is in the seam itself, between two layers of fabric). Beautiful tee, though, soft.

And don't dry your tee even on low, unless you have a hot date you need to meet. Air dry. Lay it over an armchair or towel rod. Heat is great for decals in the first week or two when materials are flexible (bonds decals to their surface) and awful after that (crack and fade).

I always thought that the flame is supposed to be on the "l" (being L),  actually not in the middle.  glasses   Great shirt though!   cool
