KRO Shirt Vote

Post by neps » Mon Mar 09, 2009 12:40 am

OK - So here are the final designs for the TShirt. We need to decide in the next 12 hrs or I don't think we'll be able to get them printed in time for the Festival. Please vote for the shirt you would buy - not maybe - definitely buy.

You can vote more than once. Cost will be no more than $15 (or less depending on volume) with a portion of proceeds going to the Children's Miracle Network.

We may be lucky and be able to print these on different colors shirts - so if you will definitely get one - reply to the thread with your base shirt color of choice so I can get an idea if custom backs is something you'ld want.

REMEMBER: You are voting on the design - NOT the background color of the shirt - the examples are for illustrative purposes. VOTING ENDS 1PM EST!

YOU CAN VOTE FOR MORE THAN ONE! If there is interest in two, we might make two - but if you vote for more than one - understand that we figure you would want to buy both.

Also let us know if you're going to the Festival or if you'ld want it shipped to wherever you are.

Designs 1 + 2 are the nicest IMO, the white KRO lettering is what does it for me.

As of 2:20pm EST the vote is:

13
3
2

I think it's safe to say number 1 is the winner. I'll leave the vote open to make sure all can vote. Will move forward with option one on red (since no one mentioned alternate colors)

Maybe you should do a grey version for those that aren't as keen on the red?



Anyway I'm not interfering, just a suggestion as red doesn't suit some people :)

yeah - exactly - if we go anything other than red I'd want to add more red to the art itself. You guys are all skipping ahead with your designs though I guess time is of the essence.

If we want to be able to do different color shirts - the ink of the art itself needs to remain the same - otherwise we'll be charged for ink changes. Right now the design is looking to be 2-3 color job (which ads like a dollar to the cost of each shirt for an additional color) - if we want to make the rays red for the gray shirt - but black for the red shirt there would be an additional color wash fee (for them to rinse the screen and apply a different color)

It's nice to go photoshop crazy with the possiblities - but that translates into cost and time that we don't have or can afford. I'm not saying mine is perfect - we just need to find a happy medium and come to it quickly.

The rays at first made me almost think the shirt was scrunched up in the front. I think I like C then E.

Thanks for your feedback! I'm gonna hope to do a Red and a Gray - B was the clear winner for the Red, but we have a three way tie with C, D and F.

Please pick ONE of the below, so we can narrow it to a final. Thanks!

Narrow it down to one hmmm...

F is probably too dark, I don't think the 2 Kitts stand out enough. D is lovely but looks a little blue. If it's an extension of the site colors your going for then I'd have to go with C as this seems to represent KRO's colors the best IMO.

So I'm gonna say C. :good:


I'm betting that the overall vote is probably gonna be D though lol

This is really hard. I agree about D being a tad blue and that it might not be KROs colors, but it might be my favorite. Well actually it might be the forum's font color lol.
The white lettering seems to stand out best on D and F and the dark cars stand out best on C and D.
So I guess my answer is D.

C is my least favorite. D does seem blue.

Here is another one called Asphalt - do you like it better?

I'm more for the B (the darker red shirt) but asphalt looks good. I think you would need either a white or red outline around the cars though to keep things from getting lost when you have dark colors/tones on dark backgrounds.

Keep in mind visability is key.

Obviously I'll tweak the designs once we're locked on colors so it's optimal. But the idea was to be distressed and feel warn into the fabric - not necessarily attention calling but more subdued. The different with these shirts vs Comic Con is that we'll be in a sea of our own fans, so no reason to be completely screaming via shirts necessarily.
