wellll when you put it like that, even if I had wanted some cashmoney for my time I'd be hard pressed to ask for it now! But I don't, so it's all good.

I am going to be moving in the next couple weeks and then will need time to get settled in, so it wouldn't be til towards the end of September that I'd be realistically able to crank these out. I'll need to buy a screen and emulsion but would be doing this anyway regardless of this project.

I'd probably need $$ for ink and maybe we could all split the cost of the screen/emulsion (as in me 50%, everyone else 50%). That would be more than enough compensation for my time. I can get screen material on eBay for around $20 which would be enough for 2 screens. That way once I burn the LATR design, I can keep the screen as is for awhile, incase people want one latr or something.

Folks could also potentially send me a blank tee and I could send it back printed or also for those in distant lands, I could get the blank and then send it out so that you're not incurring 2x international shipping. I ship tees through the mail all the time and it costs ~$3 (contiguous US) depending on the size & material of the shirt. So $6 round trip for shipping if you already have a blank tee you like, like a soft n sexy v neck you love or something. Plus whatever we decide per shirt to cover materials.

Or we could somehow order a multipack of tees in everyone's size somehow. Then I would print them and mail em. That would be cost of tee + $3ish shipping (US) + small materials fee ($2?).


Many options to consider.

I'd like to keep it at $10-12 shipped since y'all got super pro shirts done/shipped for around $15.

I could also print on whatever, really. Sweatshirt, beach towel, cape, bandana...



Also, if someone finds a good deal with a real printing company, go with that for now.

Do you maybe have a picture of another shirt you made once? I'm curious to see how shirts made like that come out.

New plan. We form a new international superhero team and we all fight crime while wearing matching LatR capes.

I don't have any of my "work" uploaded to a cloud (I am away from home for the summer), so this is all I could drum up. This first photo is actually from the very first screen I ever made many moons ago. It's on the bag I have with me, so I was able to snap a photo of it. I made it 6?5? years ago which can be seen by the disgusting state of the fabric and also through the general ricketyness of the design.



This one I grabbed from a website and cropped to protect the innocent. It shows a marked improvement over the first:





It's essentially the same process used by most printing houses, just done as a one off and without fancy equipment. To describe it real quick like, you take a glorified window screen and slather it in light sensitive chemicals (emulsion w/ sensitizer). Your design is printed on a transparency in black ink. (Actually it doesn't have to be printed but usually is. For the GO patch, I just drew on the transparency which totally shows. The camp shirt was drawn but then digitized and printed.)

The transparency is then placed on the prepped screen with a high powered lightbulb over it. The light "bakes" the emulsion into a non water soluble barrier while the design that was not exposed to the light (by means of the black ink on the transparency) remains water soluble. Then, utilizing the magic powers of water & pressure, you wash the design from the screen, leaving a stencil of the design to be used for printing.

Jeepers; In high school (waaaaayyy back in the 90's) we were taught how to carefully cut our design out by hand, using an exacto knife and film paper.... This is a much better method, because you can have "floating" spaces.

Never had one, but same. For some reason it reminds me of that massive drawing thingy that Kari did based on the Acts. Where is Kari anyway?
