Would you buy this shirt?
By popular demand:
This is similar to what’s on the cafe press store, but it’ll be silkscreened and much higher quality. The gold color will hopefully be metallic.
I’m also investigating making cloisonne pins. I’ve always wanted a cloisonne pin of my design.
I spent today designing T shirts, and am making decisions regarding the silk screen process. Silkscreen looks great; it uses FLAT (“spot”) colors; and it costs more for every color used. More colors = significantly more expensive shirt, since every color gets a separate screen press.
So I’ve got two approaches:
1. colorful shirts using 6 to 8 colors = EXPENSIVE
2. one-color shirts (using gold in my examples) = CHEAP
What do you think? I’m working in a vacuum here and need some feedback.
