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.

G'day all.
Richard, I'm with you on print on cotton.
Bill, what method does he use? No need to send me a sample. If you and Greybeard are happy with the quality.
Cheers

Richard - Muskrat
Thanks for replies

not sure GB wanted one, but if he reads this and would like to take your place I'm sure that's no problem.
will speak to Paul tomorrow
meantime here's their URL although bear in mind all of the home page does not appear on PC'c as was designed and works fine on mobile phones (possible fine on tablets too)

e - dont think any startup is needed but the PayPal would be good
 
All the best - Bill

Any idea when the Tee shirts will be available? Haven't seen anything on how to go about getting one. Still in the planning stage?

RichardL - no url
Paul phones last night, the home page is fine on mobile phones  and their shop PC monitor but not on my PC or Paul's PC monitors, it seems to be related to the resolution of the monitor ( mine is not quite as landscape as newer ones, I think mine is full HD)
anyway here is the url just bear in mind the home page might appear a bit shrunk)

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.

OK polly was first to put his hand up so he can have mine.
Polly, PM Bill with your address and size.
Cheers

OK got that  - so if you could also include email address (Richard and Polly) then when you get the shirts if there are any suggestions you can mail direct to Paul. ( the more direct the less possibility of crossed wires)
Richard - Paul says they can jiggle about with the design so not to go to too much trouble

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.

P.S.

Apologies for the apparent trivialness of this in light of the ongoing events in Munich. I am writing while following those events, with sadness for the victims.

^^^ seems one can't stop all evil. But we may compensate somehow doing as much positive\good\creative as possible.

The tshirt design is great. Thanks for all the good work put into this.

Richard I think I replied to your PM with a PM - let me know if you got it (Firefox playing up - must dump it but I just do like colour tabs and tabs just above the page - yes fussy old codger))
