The brighter gold looks best to me. Is that what the model is wearing?

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.

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

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 agree, the gold is best, the size on Paul's is right as well.
Good things come to those that wait.
Cheers

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.

Just thought that as Paul also left a white one (Nan's bagged it) I'd pop it up as well for those who prefer white
 If your thinking the chairs covered cause we're decorating it's not, it due to avoiding paw marks from the little fella that shares the chair with me  while watching  pheasants and partridge out the window.

Yes the gold works on white as well.
Wouldn't stay white on me for long! My shirt is also my hand towel!!

The design seems to work on both color tee shirts .

I will test by wearing /washing a few times and give an honest review.

2 tee shirts arrived to day ....1 black shirt with gold logo .1 white with red and black  logo ..

both looking very good .Very crisp lines and not proud and bulky printing like cheaper items ..un tested but first impressions are that they look very good and the tee shirt quality is good.

More review to follow
