T-shirts and other rubbish

Postby ADMIN » Thu Oct 27, 2016 9:13 pm

Ok, so I added a link to an e-shop selling TU2 t-shirts a while back.
https://shop.spreadshirt.com/100059483

As of writing, not a one has sold, which tells me that people don't like the price and/or the design.

Myself, I think the price is too high and the design probably needs to be a more striking/bold 2-3 colour job with perhaps the logo on the front of the shirt rather than the back.

What advice do people have and is there any interest even?

I completely forgot about them...

(edit)
Now that I looked at them a little.... yeaaaahh.... their a bit pricey. Is that like base price + maybe 10% for margin? As for the design, I would prefer the name on front with maybe a medium tank (not a huge one but obviously there) and maybe Dialogue Design on a sleeve. The current image on the front of the shirts would do better as a poster.

Yeah I agree. Looks more like a poster and not something someone in their late twenties (45 is late twenties right?) is going to wear out in public.
I prefer something simpler and I'm generally not into advertising, so a T-Shirt of a blue or red tank and nothing else (or maybe a TU2 on the back) would be much better.

I'm not really into imagery on the back for a shirt. It's a different story for a jacket of some kind.

Righto - that's good feedback.
A couple of minimalist but striking designs with/without logo seem to be the consensus.

When I get the time, I'll give the t-shirts another pass but of course, the game update is higher priority.

Ok, made another pass on the tshirts - this time going for 1 or 2 colour designs to keep cost down.

How do the designs below strike?
(still provisional so minor details may be tweaked)

I quite like the two middle ones, hard to say which one I'd prefer, probably middle left but it's close. The far left and far right ones are ok, but far left is a bit minimal (plus you spend the game blasting them), far right has the title which some people might like but the background texture stuff is a bit busy.

I like most of them except for the middle left. I don't understand why a blue tank has a red outline...? Also I can agree with opus that the background texture of the far right is a bit much, but it's not that big of a deal for me. I do love the dark black shirt color though! Will there be a logo on the back of the shirt? Because if not than you might want to always have the logo on the front, so the name gets out there.

Here's a couple more variations with the logo included.
Have tweaked the right-hand version so the background not so busy
