Title: Forum Tee shirt design
Post by: muskrat on 17.05. 2016 10:49
OK members, here's your chance to vote on the Forum's tee shirt design. One vote per member.
The Timing cover, could be black print on white shirt or gold print on black shirt.
The Engine cutout, as is on white shirt or gold print on black shirt.

As long as the label is at the back and inside, I'm happy.
Having a terrible time with underwear lately. For most of my life the info label was always at back inside.  Just to be tricky and different, clothing manufacturers are now sometimes putting the label at front, sometimes inside, sometimes outside.
This can cause great distress in some cases, especially when finding your underwear is on backwards after working down thru four layers of Motorcycle outergear with the pump  already primed !!

I would vote but I dont have a preference (third option). They both look good and I would have a tee shirt, patch, sticker and a tax disk replacement with which very design we end up with.

To me, it looks like a BSA A7 or A10 timing cover. Regardless, I think it doesn't matter at this point what it looks like. People can vote for what they like.

Surely a new poll is needed that includes Joolstachos work.

I guess most forum members only read the posts that concern their particular issue. I read most messages even if they don't apply to my machine. I would probably skip things like fitting a modern clutch though!

A forum news letter from Erling might be the way forward.

i read every unread post since last visit, on the basis that all knowledge is good, sometimes put my foot on my mouth (or should do) by asking the obvious, but such a forgiving bunch here I usually get dropped gently.

Tshirt - the numbers look like might be small (the newsletter might bring forth more) but I'm thinking do we have to settle on one, just a thought maybe a range of three but all having something Jools could add to make them obviously all of a kin
Title: Re: Forum Tee shirt design
Post by: Greybeard on 30.05. 2016 19:23
...I'm thinking do we have to settle on one, just a thought maybe a range of three...
My opinion again: If the forum has a distinctive logo the design will follow the forum 'brand'. I'm not sure Erling is willing to change the forum Home page.

Thanks for the email, I've voted. In the case of a draw, you could have one on the front and the other on the back! The engine cutaway might be useful when dealing with roadside repairs, at least you'd have a useful oily rag  *lol*

Title: Re: Forum Tee shirt design
Post by: shabashow on 30.05. 2016 23:05
I think they're both great but if you're only going to print one, it would be the timing cover for me. That makes the A10s and 7s look unique. If sales go good for whichever is chosen, then have a second run with the other design.
 
Title: Re: Forum Tee shirt design
Post by: bodger on 30.05. 2016 23:07
pffft!..timing cover from the modern versions...hmmm.

cotterpinkid and I agree, front and back!

Title: Re: Forum Tee shirt design
Post by: JulianM on 31.05. 2016 07:50
The timing cover for me,

It instantly says A10 / A7 from a long way away

The other to be honest, although I like the cutaway in essence, it looks like a single at first glance and only an A10/7 after scruitiny.

Regards,
Julian.

Thanks to the blokes who have worked on this. You have left us all with a tough choice. I finally went for the cutout. To me its more representative of a site that holds so much fantastic detail. I'll be ordering a black n gold of it.

Post by: dynodave on 31.05. 2016 14:27
The cutaway is nice, but I shy away from white T-shirts. I still have favorite special, darker colored T's from the early 80's, but white always have an early death.

Pedro,

Good to here from you. Hope the ticker is running well. Right now the exercise is limited to the two designs. It may happen that the winning design becomes the basis for some fine tuning, but, I think part of the idea is to put something together soon enough that most of us are still alive to wear them.

I vote for timing cover, dark t-shirt, gold letters: it really stands out as A7/A10. I have a Goldie cutaway T-shirt, (Would be better if I had the real thing!) and even an office bearer from the BSA club got the model wrong! Cheers to all, Gav.

Post by: CrispinA10 on 01.06. 2016 20:19
Both fine designs, but I'd go for the detailed cutaway drawing on the grounds that the timing case shape might be familiar to Beezer owners, but would look like the outline of a small Greek Island to the uninitiated, who might try to book a package holiday on BsaA10A5kilos.
Having said that, love the black and gold - could the cutaway be done in that format, or would the detail be lost?

Title: Re: Forum Tee shirt design

Sorry for the delay in responding been up to my eyeballs plotting 2017 National Rally runs.
I for one only frequent the technical pages so If Musky did not send the email I would not have known the poll was happening and Yes I am about to vote.
My thoughts  are thus ,the timing A series timing cover has been done to death must have a dozen or more rally badges themed on it.

So I would have to go for the sectioned engine .

Now just to be cantankerous I really don't go much on the text in the annulus,
 Again looks like a rally badge.
Just a thought , ditch the carb which will leave a nice spade for  A7 to be nestled to the left and A10 nestled to the right.
Then the forum URL along underneath in bolder type along a strait line,
All text in a different colour to the line drawing.
So red or yellow text and gold line drawing on a dark coloured shit would look stunning.

However are we just looking at a T-shirt so we can find each other or is the point of the exercise to create a brand logo ?
If it is the latter then a bit of a think will be needed as the sectioned engine will not reproduce in a small enough size to be used as a logo,

Second who are they going to be produced ?
Direct to garment printing would be a lot cheaper for a small run with more than 1 colour but it does not do parallel lines particularly well.

 If I did though, for the record I'm having trouble deciding if I best prefer the Greek Island Treasure Map, the Racetrack, or the Timing Cover outline *conf* *smile*

 All of which would look best in Gold on a Maroon shirt  *smile*

Well it will depend upon how they are printed.
The cheapest will be screen printing in 1 colour, gold for instance.
The down side is they will have to be done all in one hit so some one will have to fork out a lot of money up front.
However screen printing in two colours requires two screens so doubles the printing price for small runs.

OTOH direct to fabric printing can be done in any colour that your colour laser printer can print and Gold is not one of them.
So the colour would have to be different.
However most print on fabric mobs will allow 4 colours for the same price as 1 colour.

Dye sublimation is very cost effective as you post out the transfer and the recipiant irons it onto their own shirt.
This is what most of those t-shirt booths use or used to use prior to direct print to fabric.
Again you are limited the the Gammut of a laser printer.

Die sub needs a shirt that is at least 30 % synthetic fabric
Direct to fabric requires a 50% cotton ( or hemp ) fabric
Screen print works best on coton but now days they can do 100% synthetic

I haven't checked out pricing for bulk screening in the U.S, but, as mentioned, direct-to-fabric for a lot of 100 is $8.08/ea.

Trevor is right about printing in gold. Custom Ink provided a "closest match" when I sent in the attached design to see the sample. More yellow than gold, perhaps.

Spoke to my nephew on Sunday (has a business T printing) he's willing to produce a couple of shirts to send to moderators, with suggestions about selling and distribution,  these demos would be done by hand so no costs involved there, he spoke of sending a demo to our Two ? moderators for  free for them to have a look see and would talk to them regarding further steps. but no obligation incurred at this stage.
They do a fair bit if bike stuff, also they have a website I can put on( will have to get it from him as I've lost it it seems)
He also suggested if we cant choose one of the designs they could do both.
I would need to supply him with the designs first of course

Do you want me to contact him with the moderators names and address's ( PM me those)
Title: Re: Forum Tee shirt design
Post by: Greybeard on 19.07. 2016 23:39
Sounds good. Does he understand that the mods are in different continents? Also a couple of colour schemes for each design are required; eg. Gold on black, red and black on white, etc.

Post by: RichardL on 20.07. 2016 15:15
All,

FYI, I have the graphics with the ring and the engine in gold. The problem, for now, it that I haven't gotten the gold of the engine to match the ring. I should be able to figure that out with a bit of time invested. (It's a matter of the ring generated in ACAD and the engine coming in as a JPG). As has been previously noted, the gold will be somewhat more dark yellow with ink-jet printing. Personally, I would prefer that on cotton (and cheap) over dye-sublimation on polyester, or plasticized screening. We have been over all that and my personal opinion here is not the end-all. 

I suppose it would be good to know what process is used by Bill's nephew.

I'm waiting to get the two designs and address's of the two people who will receive DEMO shirts for their comments upon, if favourable then we can proceed, to order, this will require as you can imagine names delivery address size............................,
The demo shirts will be done by hand, so no set up costs and will be free to the two individuals, production shirts will be better.
it will be better and cheaper to have one large order (obviously) once done the screens are saved and can be used again should we require future lots
Reckless Promotions have a distribution link so possible they would do the posting.(sure Paul said this but will double check)
Costs - Paul has said he will put up some prices but would be unfair to do that at this time , lets get the two demo shirts out and see.
GB and Muskrat could you sort out between you who wants to be the second recipient?

I already have my own two prototype shirts. I think it would be preferable to let someone else put their hand up. RichardL should be the chap to upload definitive designs; he already did most of the work.
I guess shirts will be white or black, each with appropriate coloured design's.

Here is the gold-on-black version that would be used for ink-jet printing, as in Custom Ink in the USA. I assume that screening would need a black and white version for one-color.  I can send the JPG(s?) direct to Paul rather than picking image off of the forum, which has been reduced to our acceptable posting resolution.

Title: Re: Forum Tee shirt design
Post by: RichardL on 20.08. 2016 17:36
I think the "model" must be Paul, Bill's nephew. It seems to me he is wearing the more subdued gold and it looks better in that shot than in the close-up. If that's the subdued, it seems more gold than yellow, and I think gold is what we were looking for. We need to ask Paul to be sure. Two other points: there is a bit of a glitch in the screen at the "BSA" and I think it could be a bit bigger, maybe an inch, or a bit more.

Richard L.

P.S. I'll email this message to Paul.
Title: Re: Forum Tee shirt design
Post by: bsa-bill on 20.08. 2016 18:23
Yes Paul dropped  a couple of prints along for me to put up so you can see the work in progress, (and kindly left me the one print that was on a Tee  *smile* , the other is just on a cloth sample  - that might just find it's way onto a wall near an A)
Paul (pictured is wearing the Gold, the other is more yellow Camera alters it a bit.
These are far from the finished, some very small misses where he joined screens and the cloth is not what it will be in final version.
He also needed Richard and Polly's  details for mailing and size, I haven't got your size Paul.
next step is for Richard and Polly to give there opinion/suggestions after they have received their samples
All the best - Bill

Post by: RichardL on 20.08. 2016 19:25
Gents,

Paul is quite quick with his responses. Here is what he wrote:

Hi Richard,
yes that's not the final screen as you say there is a glitch in the BSA and also I small hair line in the circle, these images where just put on screens to determine the best mesh count if screen to use for the gold ink as it is a very thick ink, just thought I'd take the opportunity to run  the different colours through that screen as I wouldn't want to do it on the final screen,

The one I'm wearing is the more subdued and matallic gold one.

I must admit I like the gold, it's more stylish and retro looking,

Size is no problem to change for final screen, I tried it at 30cm and thought it was too big so made it smaller, maybe something in the middle? See what the masses think!

Thanks
Paul


So far, I like the gold, as well, but I'm hoping the thickness of the ink does not impact resolution.

I took the liberty to work with Paul on the size and we both agreed that 3cm larger in diameter would be better. He's wearing a medium and the image does seem a bit small to me, so it might look really small on Lg an XL.

Hi all,

I've been quiet for a couple of days just spent in the hospital for a bladder issue. I will spare you the details other than to say that it was not serious, just real effing uncomfortable.

Regarding the shirts, everything I've seen in the photos and heard from Polly makes me believe we should get the ordering and distribution functions started right away. It would take a serious flaw in the design or workmanship for me to somehow suggest we needed wait with regard to taking orders. I don't expect that. In any case, my sample should be here any day now and there would be ample time for any comments from me to be considered before production actually began.

Title: Re: Forum Tee shirt design
Post by: RichardL on 07.04. 2018 18:46
Colin,

It's not really up to me, but my first inclination was to say "No," but you could try to contact Paul at recklesspromotion.uk and ask if a one-off is possible. I think it will mean the design will end up lower on the chest, but not sure. Having done the graphics for the design, I think I can tell you with some certainty that there will not be a revised design for V-neck. There is barely enough demand to keep Reckless interested. It would be very different if each of our members bought a shirt. I think we are getting some grace with regard to volume due to a family (not my family) relationship with Reckless.

I concur with Richard, I think it's a no.
Vee neck Tees in UK at least are not that popular ( yes they are available sometimes in Sports Direct and such as part of probable a run of several thousand with some all enveloping meaningless slogan on them ).
next time I see cousin Paul I'll run past him the idea of printing the design on self supplied tees, but don't hold your breath on this.
As Richard has said the number of Tees sold to the Forum has been very disappointing especially given the positive comments from all who have them, a more commercial minded concern would have probably pulled them by now, Paul and Mark are both bike minded people and this has counted in our favour.
