I have designed a few t-shirts for upcoming events in my area. My focus is on profit margins. For example, I know Cotton Bureau creates high-quality final products, but it seems like actual money-making is slim-to-none unless you knock it out of the park on a design and get tons of buys. Teepublic was my go-to and has a great rate of $4 per sale, but only prints on the front side of shirts... are there any other go-to t-shirt printing sites?
Hey guys, I have a new tee up on Cotton Bureau (it went live today) I know there's some old heads in here who remember going to a thing called the arcade back in the day. Well this starfighter was from one of the best games ever: Galaga. Pick one up if you'd like or pass on the link to friends and family. Thanks for your time. https://cottonbureau.com/products/challenging-stage -MEANS
Every once in a while I see someone post a link to where you can order their custom logo on a shirt or jersey, vinyl logo, or something. If you miss it on that initial posting, it generally gets lost in the aether. If you've created some merch for your custom logo, post it here. Preferably, it would be neat if you could post a pic of your logo, a link to the thread where it was originally discussed, and the link to where your merch is. I know there are tons of logos on here that I'd love to just be able to fire off a quick order for a shirt. Also, this would be a good place to consolidate all the various sites that allow for one-off or very small run printings of stuff, and the pros and cons of each. I know some let you just print it directly off of mini-stores, and some require minimum orders before printing, and some put you in a run-off against another design. If you're not making merch, why not? (mods, if this sort of thing is frowned upon, please delete this thread)
Back in 2003 or 2004 I found a t-shirt with the Iowa Hawkeyes mascot holding a mug of beer: In 2006 I sold it on eBay for $40 which was a lot for a t-shirt back then. The other day while browsing around on Pinterest I found an extremely similar t-shirt, and here is the cropped and zoomed-in graphic: Obviously the same artist or t-shirt company made both of these, due to the same font used, the same reclining pose of the mascots, and almost the identical foam on the mugs of beer. My theory about these shirts is a local t-shirt company in Iowa decided to make some easy cash by selling them outside the football stadiums of these two teams, because obviously a university would never approve of and then officially license an image of its mascot holding a beer. HOWEVER, the late 70's and early 80's, the era these shirts are from, were different times. The legal drinking age back then was 18, and drinking was considered an essential part of college life, so much so that the college I went to rented a Coors truck for the day back in 1979 and handed out free beers to students on the green! Something like that would NEVER happen now a days, so if a college would sanction and pay for free beer being handed out to students, who says they couldn't license an image of their mascot holding a beer? It's totally possible. Unlikely, but possible. I just thought it was cool how these two shirts, albeit representing two different schools, obviously used the same template. It makes me very curious if the artist or company that made these also made them for other schools, or possibly pro teams. Has anyone else ever seen these shirts or ones like them before?
