LDT APPAREL
Hello guys! Beany approached me the other day asking if we were gonna have any apparel this year.

As you might know, our apparel hasn't always gone as smoothly as we wished it went.
That's why we're gonna keep it as simple as we can this year.

We're gonna have one simple T-shirt design, available in all sizes.
Obviously, the more we can order the cheaper we can get our hands on them.
We have no intention of profiting from the T-shirts, we just want to get T-shirts to the people who want them.

 

 

CURRENT T-SHIRT DESIGN
Proof of concept. Subject to change. Ignore the shit cropping.

We're doing jerseys instead lol, read the thread.

The graphics on the back will probably be changed to this:

PRICE

Between €20 and €24, depending on the volume of sales.

 

 

WHEN

We'll hand them over to you at CampZone 2016.

Contact me if you would like them sooner, but no guarantees here.

 

 

HOW

Right now we just want to know how many people would be interested in the first place.
Shortly after this has been established, we'll be allowing a week for payments to come in before we order.

 

Please leave a reply if you're interested in buying one or perhaps several T-shirts.

I'm getting the vibe that a lot of people would prefer paying more for a more unique design. What do you guys think?

The more unique the better. All we should strive for a shirt that everyone is okay with. I would indeed be willing to pay more far a more unique piece of apparel. 
 
I especialy like the shirt of last year ( think it was EPIC.LAN):

Would like a unique design, but if that's the case I want to pay for it when I see them..

I've looked into more unique designs.

It turns out there's an enormous gap in between "T-shirt with custom print" and "custom made T-shirt".
I've looked at around 12 different "Design your own T-shirt" websites like Spreadshirt but all of them use the same base models, none of which have anything black with orange accents. Actual unique apparel would require a lot of emailing companies, designing vector graphics, and a large price premium.

That's a lot of added cost, effort, and perhaps above all: risk that it won't go well.

 

I think I'm going to leave it as-is, probably with a more elaborate back design.

For the sake of having LDT shirts at all.  :P

Looks to me like the logo is just a little bit too much to the side in the first image.

Do you have a choice in material?

@Pandaboy

Will look into it.

 

@Beany

Like most sites, they offer a range of base T-shirts.
I took the cheapest one, they have a "premium" model for a 3 euro premium, as well as some other designs like longsleeve, V-neck, and jersey.

 

You're all welcome to do your own browsing, by the way. 
If you would like to propose a design of your own, you're free to post that in this thread.

To keep the cost down they would all have to be similar apart from size.
I'd really rather not overcomplicate stuff by making custom sub-orders.

 

@Smelly
They come in regular size increments (M, L, XL), the website specifies the dimensions of those sizes but we'll get to those specifics when we get around to ordering and collecting payments.

I've done some more digging.
I was looking into having the LDT logo on the left and right sleeves as well, but Spreadshirt and other sites only allowed for plain text to be added there.
Seeing as the LDT logo's font doesn't exist, that's kind of a problem. It usually only allows for one color too.

 

Many different stores offer have stock bi-color designs but black or even dark grey with orange just does not exist.
The only reasonable way I can step the design up a notch is by looking at custom E-Sports jerseys.
 

Something like this:
 

b32abc089bea6b5159311e5452708530.png

 

 

Undoubtedly, something like this would be really cool but they're always gonna set you back at least €35 euros, excluding shipping and all that stuff. (Assume €40 p.p.)

On top of that they're always gonna be jerseys; so full polyester, which is kind of cool but makes it a bit unsuitable to be worn casually.

 

If more people feel like paying €40 for a custom jersey than €20 for a custom T-shirt, I'll consider that instead.

A Jersey would be even cooler, I'd definitely get one of those for 40 euro's (If it has a nice design, ofcourse.)

I definitely prefer the simple one on the OP, want something I'd actually wear in public haha. I prefer the more complicated back design but if you did that could you make the oranges match? One is slightly different.

@Many
I kind of feel the same way.

I'm willing to put down the money for the jersey because of the insane swag factor, but in the end I'd prefer owning a T-shirt that I can wear under other stuff.

 

About the oranges, the source files actually have the same color, the T-shirt designing thing puts a filter over it to blend it better with the photo.

 

 

Of course, we can still do both T-shirts and Jerseys but the T-shirts would lose their bulk discount and will probably end up costing ~€23 for the people that do want them. Another concern of course is that people would be walking around with different apparel rather than a single defining piece of clothing.

 

On top of that, I don't think I even have the graphic design skills to come up with something nearly as cool as clan Mystik's Jersey, so I would like some outside help with that if we do decide we're getting jerseys.
