No, I'm not joking.

Here's what I'd like from this thread: IDEAS!

Tell me your favourite lines, your favourite pictures, your favourite jokes. Anything you'd like to see on a t-shirt/bag/skateboard/mousepad/whatever and we will MAKE IT HAPPEN.

We're setting the prices as low as possible, but are making a teeny tiny bit off each purchase! Help us pay for a domain name!

Thanks, guys!

Well it's kind of a no-brainer but you HAVE to do the meme's. Things like "HE NEEDS TO INGEST IT", boat shaped things, the Flan flan, perhaps the infamous pineapple? well, and this Image
[that gets me every time x3!]
I don't really know, these are just a few of my favorites. I seem to be a fan of OOC, which might be a problem, since not all of the... can you call them customers yet? have experienced this.
However you can never go wrong with a classic DrowLove in those fancy pink letters.

[>3> i would totally buy all of this in button form.]

As much asspain as it might be to redraw things... I think we're going to have to. I was hoping that Illustrator or Flash could trace the bitmaps for us, but I tried it with a couple of posts (this and this, if you must know) and the quality was always choppy. It's passable but I wouldn't print it on a shirt. Their requirements for raster pictures is:

* be saved as .png, .jpg, .bmp, or .gif (transparent formats, i.e. .gif or .png, are preferred)
* have a minimum resolution of 200 dpi
* maximum size of 3000 x 3000 pixels
* and a maximum file size of 3 mb


...And they have a limited number of vector designs allotted to stores.

It's possible to clean them up (Flash is really friendly when it comes to that), but it takes a long time. And then Flash exploded and made my monitor go all blooey and crashed my computer.

So Yeah. In the long run it'll be better to re-draw or draw new things for the store (as in the case of the holding hands picture).

Yeah! I have Flash 8, I figured I'd do up nice versions of whatever we wanted. :3 Shea has Illustrator, too, and is SUPER OMG AWESOME at making vectory versions of the characters. I dunno if you guys saw her KAEDO but he was my wallpaper for like, ever.

Oh, and I don't even know what they mean about vector stuff. I uploaded an .eps of one of the logos and it like, didn't work, so I just reuploaded a raster version that was really high res. *shrug* It doesn't seem to be a problem as long as we export everything hugexhuge.

HAHA I did an experimental "HE NEEDS TO INGEST IT" shirt yesterday, with PINK GLITTER TEXT and a love potion icon, and then discovered that it ups the price of the shirt like CRAZY to put things on it, (um, duh) so I stopped and decided to sleep on it first. I'll toy with that one some and try to get the price down, or all our tshirts are gonna cost like $20. D: I should probably redo the one that's up there, as well, and make sure I'm doing this in an intelligent manner.

We REALLY liked the OOC-on-shirts idea too. :D That's DEFINITELY DEFINITELY something we were thinking. Most of it should make some sense after reading the comic, anyway! I think. I hope.

I noticed this! and to choose just one would probably kill me inside. However this font/colour scheme seems to be iconic to me?
http://tinyurl.com/p84r5r However I did notice the one you used for your store. Since this will been a lot by anyone entering the site, that might make for a better option.
[also pink glitter? ;w; that sounds too perfect to be real!]

WTF why not. D:

I wonder if we can find a way to get them to you anyway? Like have someone else order it for you, and then ship it out with an exchange of money?
