Its starting to look like my idea may have been a little ambitious as the printing these companies do is unable to go over seams, so it looks like arm stripe and shoulder pads are out of the question unless applied manually.  As for the front design, the only company I've seen that will allow coverage large enough to get the Orange stripe high enough on the right shoulder is quoting 21.60 (around $35) just for the front, and I guess it would be around an extra 3 or 4 if we want to add anything to the back (although that was for just 1 copy so it may be less if we get multiple orders).  I'm still in favour of a hoodie myself (as I tend to wear 2 layers outside on all but the absolute hottest of days), however I would probably go for a t-shirt as well if that is what the majority want.

I say we base something around a general commando look... the pic at the top of the forum page. No colors, just commandos.

Personally I think it'd be easiest for us to just decide on a design and then make our own.

It may be easier to make our own, but it will also likely be more expensive.  These places charge extra on the first order for the cost of setting up the template, so you may end up paying twice as much as if we settled on one place and all used that.

But you don't have to have a high quality if you don't want to. It's just a thought. It would be easier but more expensive, that's true.

I think its going to be expensive no matter what you do.

I personally think Customink is the best way to go.   I've done a few shirts through them, they are decent as far as price goes and the quality has never been an issue.   They take any design that you want (like say the one I made) and they give it to real artists who look it over and modify it if its needed to make it look the best it can on a shirt.

With that being said... I think what we really need to do is to make a design or two that we can all agree on.

Will anyone accept the challenge to make a design?

Before you get all worried about criticism... Every design will be considered and no design will be mocked. I hope that I have the Mods help with this promise I've given.

I saw the other day one of my hoodies getting a bit faded so I began thinking about this again, and ended up after work playing around with ideas for RC ones based on my previous suggestion here.  I'm thinking about making one, maybe two of them by hand with an estimated cost of around 30 ($47.50) for each one (although be aware I'm not planning to make any just yet, probably when I go back to university (when I'll have some money to spend on this) and the weather gets colder meaning I'll be needing a new hoodie).



This is just a first draft so I could change them later on (Sev's one especially I'd probably re-do, although that would more likely be when actually making it rather then trying to get a concept looking good).
