G101 T-shirts!


(Would you rock a G101 T-Shirt!?)
These shirts will be to promote the site for donations, contests, recognition and more.


The Story:


My dad, aka Daventor, has given me the assignment to make some "game-face-101" shirts!

This has been something that he's always wanted me to do ever since I was a teen-ager ~ put my art on shirts.

In the process I have called around the local print shops to find out that I needed to re-make some of my designs at a 300dpi and at other versions of black and white, 1 to 2 to 3 to 4-5-6 colors etc...
(the more the colors the more the costs)

I've also realized that I needed to remake the forum/site logo into a more simpler, 1 screen/color design, so that I may be able to print it at a lower cost to make the shirts more affordable for everyone.

It took me a few days to redraw the circuit lines and come up with the concept for the new logo... in the process of thinking of something catchy and solid and plays well off of the word game-face, I started thinking about how I always loved the autobot symbol but it always looked so sad, so I figured why not make a happy one? With 'the game-face' being made of multiple game controllers, I had to go simple, so instead I made it out of one. After some adjustments, I ended up feeling pretty proud of what was accomplished (which is close to impossible to a perfectionist)
Check out the new face outline (daventor's recommendation)

I'm getting great feedback, tips, tricks, and recommendations from you all and I appreciate that very much. Hope this turns out to a must have.

Sounds like a really neat idea. I'd wear one. Depends what the art is like though :p
MotionM Re: G101 T-shirts! on 15/3/2012, 12:07 pm
I would love to wear one!
I just need the money. Haha. I usually never get money to use online for shopping but I'm sure I will soon for my 18th birthday in April. Let me know. Very Happy
BliZZvET Re: G101 T-shirts! on 15/3/2012, 6:07 pm
I would definitely buy one. Smile
mr_wiggles Re: G101 T-shirts! on 15/3/2012, 6:09 pm
The black design looks cool and id wear one of them.
NuKa_BuBble Re: G101 T-shirts! on 15/3/2012, 6:17 pm
I agree with mr_wiggles. The black one is very cool.
Mw360 Re: G101 T-shirts! on 15/3/2012, 8:12 pm
I'd wear it!

BluE Re: G101 T-shirts! on 15/3/2012, 9:00 pm
Now that the art is up, I think I'd wear one.
Looking @ Mw's picture, I think the logo should be a bit bigger on the shirt
NuKa_BuBble Re: G101 T-shirts! on 15/3/2012, 9:49 pm
Where did you got it MW360?
NuKa_BuBble Re: G101 T-shirts! on 15/3/2012, 10:13 pm
Do you like this joke shirt?
BliZZvET Re: G101 T-shirts! on 15/3/2012, 11:01 pm
what is the guy on the far right holding?

Onesimus Re: G101 T-shirts! on 16/3/2012, 6:30 am
Shirt looks nice, however I don't have a paypall to buy one Sad
@nukabubble I don't get it?
NuKa_BuBble Re: G101 T-shirts! on 16/3/2012, 10:16 am
@Thanatos: The guy is holding a taser gun Razz
@Onesimus: What do you mean by I don't get it?
G@MeF@Ce Re: G101 T-shirts! on 16/3/2012, 8:39 pm
update - done with final draft ~ working on the vector final

@thx guys - know that there will be some give-aways but these will be used to raise funds (donations) for further development to the site, hold contests, tournaments, etc... also prices will vary for each member based off of your coins X select level + user id, so yes members who have been here longer will benefit just as active and/or liked members as well.


HA! (I still don't get it)

Onesimus Re: G101 T-shirts! on 17/3/2012, 12:21 am
@nuka I meant I don't get the joke....
NuKa_BuBble Re: G101 T-shirts! on 17/3/2012, 11:45 am
@GameFace: Very nice T-Shirts. How did you make the previews on my shirt?

@Onesimus: The guy say that random and the other in his back come with a taser gun. Got it? Laughing
swoop Re: G101 T-shirts! on 17/3/2012, 5:53 pm
i got some ideas bro.. ill get back to you sunday night.. lots on the plate.. but one think i can say is i like the ideas, but i would have you incorporate more gamepads.. rather than the standard ps1 gamepad.. into the design.. like on your site.. ill just come over and we can brainstorm

hello everyone else! Smile
Mw360 Re: G101 T-shirts! on 17/3/2012, 10:33 pm
Messin around with the white t shirt.
Im with swoop on adding more gamepads tho the only reason I owned a ps1 was for FF7.
mr_wiggles Re: G101 T-shirts! on 18/3/2012, 4:10 pm
^ that, but inverted tho.
G@MeF@Ce Re: G101 T-shirts! on 19/3/2012, 11:16 pm
very very close to the final-final design

now take a look at the original post, the logo now has the address and the face is at an outline instead of solid.

currently reviewing copyrights, design patents to know what is safe to use as in controller shapes, costs, etc...
NuKa_BuBble wrote:@GameFace: Very nice T-Shirts. How did you make the previews on my shirt?
@nuka - did a search for design shirts online and found http://www.customink.com just click away and upload the art!

@swoop - thx for the feedback broski, I really like your idea on tweaking the circuits to form a:


let's brain storm on more for the 1st line up, at least 3 different shirts...

@360 - I looked everywhere on the custom ink site to find that shirt you painted took me a while to realize it's not there geek
I hear wiggles, a black chest with white sleeves and collar and the white logo would look b@d@$$

MotionM Re: G101 T-shirts! on 7/4/2012, 12:53 pm
There anyway to buy these any time soon? I just got easter money and would love the black and white one. Very Happy
mr_wiggles Re: G101 T-shirts! on 7/4/2012, 8:54 pm
@the first post, i like the 3rd one from the top.
G@MeF@Ce Re: G101 T-shirts! on 12/4/2012, 4:13 am
right on guys! with requests like that it will speed up the process Very Happy

we are good to go this summer... as there will be chances to win then too.
Onesimus Re: G101 T-shirts! on 12/4/2012, 4:35 am
G@MeF@Ce Re: G101 T-shirts! on 2/11/2012, 3:26 pm
somethings take time and this has been one of those things, first design will simply be the white logo enlarged on the chest of a black t-shirt.

We're are working on the quality/quantity/cost.

I'm doing what I can to keep the costs low so I can sell them cheap.

Ideally sell the plain ones for $10 (reasonable) in hopes that it will only cost me no more than $6- $8 to make em. I cant wait to wear one of these or see someone else rock it ^,^

(I just dont want the quality of the shirts to be crappy cuz it was cheaper)
Onesimus Re: G101 T-shirts! on 2/11/2012, 11:02 pm
Super! Would the buyer (me) need to organise postage?
MotionM Re: G101 T-shirts! on 3/11/2012, 12:21 am
@Onesimus I'm sure for shipping + Handling and plus more if you live overseas. My mom used to sell stuff on Ebay so I kinda know how some of this works.
G@MeF@Ce Re: G101 T-shirts! on 3/11/2012, 2:09 pm
@1z - what M said

shipping ~ another reason why we're pushing for a low cost
NuKa_BuBble Re: G101 T-shirts! on 3/11/2012, 3:27 pm

I actually drawed those for a t-shirt, which one do you prefer?
G@MeF@Ce Re: G101 T-shirts! on 3/11/2012, 3:33 pm
^nuka - I get it, instead of a spade, it's an upside down heart with a knife +
I like the black bicycle, makes the red stand out more
Onesimus Re: G101 T-shirts! on 3/11/2012, 9:41 pm
yeah black bicycle is better : )
G@MeF@Ce Re: G101 T-shirts! on 11/12/2012, 9:31 pm
Ok NOW we have finally decided to move forward with the very first print!

Simply it's a single screen, one sided print, and medium quality shirt to help keep the cost low.

(first post updated)

mr_wiggles Re: G101 T-shirts! on 12/12/2012, 5:18 pm
Looks sweet with wrap around logo.
G@MeF@Ce Re: G101 T-shirts! on 13/12/2012, 8:46 pm
after considering some constructive feedback, I've taken the time to fine tune the first t-shirt design (instead of all guns blazing :~P )

thanks to my boy gizdaddy, my pops and bros, my friends and the community, I've taken their feedback and made some adjustments to the first print:

now with the design finalized, we are collecting quotes from the print shops ~ the order will be for two dozen
(I simply can't wait to rock one, it's been a long time coming)

notice all the adjustments?

^it's a new face, the circuit mane was re-shaped, can you imagine this in color? ^,^
MotionM Re: G101 T-shirts! on 13/12/2012, 9:15 pm
Looks great.
G@MeF@Ce Re: G101 T-shirts! on 14/12/2012, 4:09 am
so this Friday I will know the cost and how long it will take to ship, etc...

can't wait... simply cant wait +
G@MeF@Ce Re: G101 T-shirts! on 18/12/2012, 9:01 pm
had to make a few minor adjustments for the print shop, here's the final final print for design #1

updating original post.
G@MeF@Ce Re: G101 T-shirts! on 26/12/2012, 6:25 am
just wanted to say thank you to my pops and oldest bro for their contributions to purchase the first two dozen shirts + + also a big thanks to Giz-Dad for coordinating everything with the shop +
a special thanks to Kat for making the biggest donation just for 1 shirt <3

There was a small defect in the screening process, instead of 6 there were only 3 buttons on the right of the controller head. (which makes the first batch of shirts priceless) They made great gifts for Xmas + unfortunately I had ran out of the smaller sizes. I had received a few donations via web and will ship this week. I'm down to only a few XL's and XXL's planning on making another order next month.
G@MeF@Ce Re: G101 T-shirts! on 4/1/2013, 7:59 am
speaking of donations...I'm down to just a few XXL's left. as soon as I break even on the shirt biz, I'll give one away as a prize! I'll also take care of shipping IF it's within reason.
MotionM Re: G101 T-shirts! on 3/5/2013, 12:38 pm
Any new orders for smaller sizes? And any chance of a giveaway soon? Very Happy
G@MeF@Ce Re: G101 T-shirts! on 3/5/2013, 1:23 pm
heck M you've been keeping this fire burning when the flames are low,
if I had the $ now, I would just send you one +

The first batch just disappeared during Christmas, I need to collect more pictures of those who have the shirt for a gallery.
(the first print has an error, only 3 buttons and not 6 on the controller face)

I'm thinking this summer we'll have another batch.
Need to come up with some clever giveaway or contest Idea
Mw360 Re: G101 T-shirts! on 4/5/2013, 10:39 pm
Got any XL left? Im a big boy..
G@MeF@Ce Re: G101 T-shirts! on 8/5/2013, 3:36 am
that first batch disappeared, working on the next batch +

MotionM Re: G101 T-shirts! on 18/7/2013, 8:17 pm
Are any still around or newly pressed? I just got my first paycheck, so I'm kinda spending most of it. :p
G@MeF@Ce Re: G101 T-shirts! on 18/7/2013, 8:22 pm
^,^ - just got paid <~ such a good feeling right?

that first batch disappeared in a few weeks, let me see what I can do for you M\'s trade mark (I'll PM ya)

mr_wiggles Re: G101 T-shirts! on 27/7/2013, 3:31 pm
We've been designing this awesome T for over a year now. :p
swoop Re: G101 T-shirts! on 4/8/2013, 11:31 pm
Yeah.. IMO - we need to get some uniformity on the fonts.
