I sayyyyyy....... lets have a last tshirt designer contest!:] like the icon one except its tshirts I guess? cause I've always wanted to design a shirt but could never open a shop, but you have to design for createblog
from this thread
http://www.createblog.com/forums/index.php...c=14142&hl=

okay if its lame, nevermind :]

I think this is as good an idea as any, if someone wants to take charge of it. I'd leave it until the Icon maker contest is done, though, because it may have overlapping appeal, and we wouldn't want it to start, and then be overshadowed, if that makes sense.

The shirts better be cheap. I ain't paying $20 for a shirt with quality as that of Old Navy.

why? you pay out the ass for a pair of jeans. i wouldn't be surprised if walmart carried the same quality pair. you buy it for the name.

I think it's a good idea, but we need to get people to say that they are for sure going to do it.
brooklyneast05
maybe before you guys charge ahead with this idea you should see how many people would even be willing to buy a t-shirt? i find it hard to believe the demand on this site would be very high considering the majority of people here aren't even old enough to have a credit card to pay i don't think. shrug.gif

I'M RAINING ON YOUR PARADE.


no, but really maybe you should do a poll or something and see if there's any demand for this. i guess you can just have the t shirt design contest regardless though and just never actually use the design for real shirts. i don't know.
KryMeARiver
We had one already.

nas made the winning design, and I know krnxswat has one. I didn't buy one.

No one really wanted them.
rnicron
i know i wouldn't want one
libertie
I think it's a really cool idea, actually, and it's something I'd get excited about if other people in this topic weren't right in saying that people probably wouldn't buy the tshirts. sad.gif

I think it might take off more if the designs didn't have to be entirely cb-related, though..
Simba
I'd like one...




if I get paid $5 a month for advertising createBlog.

*shrug*

If people want to do it, let them, whether or not the shirt will sell... Might just be fun.
demolished
who the f**k will buy a shirt that says "createblog" when it means to no one but yourself? Like jc says, kids dont have online access to shop.

why dont we make shirts that DOESNT SAY CREATEBLOG, but the brand name/designer would be createblog? not only it will not sell to children, it'll sell to adults who are able to buy them without going, "wtf is createblog ?"

i'll ask the entire cb now, WHO ACTUALLY HAVE CB SHIRT(S)?

anyway, yeah i'm mostly concerned that no one would buy it. i mean, i have a credit card, but i still wouldn't probably. if i had to ask my parents for theirs to buy it, then i definitely wouldn't.
demolished
yeah ... then, cB would make a fashion statement across the world. jusun would become rich. rolleyes.gif

but anyways, it's more profitable and SMARTER because you are not only representing createblog, you're also representing unknown artist + designs.

Hardly anyone would buy this shirt with the following reasons:
- it tells people that you have no life
- it means you're obbessed with createblog website
- you are an active member of this website
- createblog is an odd "brand name"
- unpopular
- people would question it ...
- teacher/adults would think you're stupid because cB does seem to be "stupid" when all these lame topics
- invades the boundary of REAL LIFE AND INTERNET LIFE. rolleyes.gif

a shirt without "createblog" is SOMETHING you would buy, if it looks tight.
Simba
What if we just design some cool shirts like you said, have a small "createBlog" logo/signature thing somewhere just to rep, and get them made. cB's probably got the creative power to come up with some interesting stuff.

Just start off slow, that's all.
demolished
i don't know anyone would want buy in the name of createblog logo.

Honestly, I assume everyone is ashamed of representing unpopular brand name. You normally don't see people wearing clothes that clearly label "OLD NAVY" on their sweater because it doesn't appeal as much as Hollister or A&F. High brand names are considered socially acceptable and comfortable to represent. Although old navy clothes are cheaper to buy and POPULAR, but people wont buy in the name of it. I have a few shirts from old navy, but I make sure they don't say Old Navy for some odd reasons. I have a sweater that says aeropostale which is acceptable in social outings so i FEEL comfortable showing "aeropostale".

does anyone feel me? i just dont represent some ghetto ass logo/brand name.

Maybe, it's nice to have it on the tags inside the shirt or... have some sort of removable paper tags that attach to the shirt? As long the clothes doesnt show any "creteblog-ness", i would buy it. if not, i'm so sorrryy.

i sound too anal and picky. blink.gif but i'm speaking from experience ...
LoveToMySilas
^ Kinda like Aeropastle compared to American Eagle. They both like to put their labels right out there but I prefer to wear AE.

I was actually considering buying one of the cB shirts...if they ever came out with a slim flit one. shrug.gif It'd be cute if they had cB inside jokes on them, haha.
demolished
_smile.gif Yeah.

Many people still wear clothes with big signs. "aeropostale". It still feels "safer"/"comfortable" to wear it by brand because itís popular.

I generally assume most people would buy clothes that donít label brand names or label popular brand names.

Tung
I'm actually embarrassed to show the Aeropostale logo. If I get clothes from there, I make sure to buy something which has the logo sort of hidden. That's just me though. Not trying to say I have higher standards in clothing. mellow.gif

Oh and it's true. I could easily buy a plain white tee, but if it has like a brand logo I like on it, I'll buy it for like $50, as compare to the same plain white tee with maybe a GAP logo on it for $10.

Haha. laugh.gif Exactly! People would buy clothes by brand or blank.
i only have a 2 sweaters from aero because they were on sale _smile.gif

Aeropostale is crap quality. I had a few things back from junior year of high school, but I've sworn off their clothing because it's crap -- feels like the crap I see at forever 21. Of course I haven't been in an aero store for a year now, so IDK if they upped their quality.

What does the GAP logo on a shirt look like? The blue box with a the white words GAP on it?

Anyways, I wouldn't mind wearing a cB shirt if it has something cool on it. But of course, createBlog ain't no threadless, so it will depend on what kind of graphic will be on the shirt and the shirt is of good quality (based on reviews). I ain't 'fraid to represent, na'mean? cool.gif
Simba
Ha ha the createBlog logo thing doesn't even have to be all that noticeable even. It could be as inconspicuous as one of those little animals they use, like the Abercrombie moose.

Just a little icon that shows the design was from createBlog, in case anyone notices.
demolished
sick.gif then someone needs to vector a logo ? _unsure.gif

so we have to use the same old logo for every tshirt designs? _smile.gif

So would we have rounds of different themes or for a Createblog Redesign T-shirt contest?

I personally wouldn't care, but I'd say whoever the winner is we could get put it on a t-shirt and have it sent to them for free.

I was always taught that it is tacky to go out and buy clothes with the brand name advertised on it...but maybe that is just me...

I think the idea could work if it was something similiar to the things in the Deviantart store. As in, it can be just about anyone's art that they submit, and maybe just put a small CB logo somewhere on the shirt if you must. But then where would the money go? 100% towards the cost of production?

That'd probably be a good idea, 'cause if they're gonna end up getting it anyway, they might as well make a design they'd actually wear.

Definitely not just you. I really don't think wearing a logo of a "popular" brand would make me at all comfortable, perhaps because I don't feel the need to be a complete conformist? And Tung, please be kidding about paying $50 for a brand name t-shirt.

I like the idea of just a general t-shirt contest, a la threadless or something.

Yes. Unlike many others, I don't wear clothes specifically because of their brand -- as long as the material is of good quality and I find it cute. My dislike for Aeropostale is the crap quality. I'd rather pay more for the sake of higher quality and better fitting.

As long as it has a nice graphic on it and cafepress shirts are of good material, then it's all good. I have not ordered any clothes from cafepress yet, so if anyone has, please let me know. thumbsup.gif But I am not one of those people who are ashamed because a certain non-name brand is deemed "unpopular" or that we have "no life". The same can be said about anime shirts, but I will still wear them. Heck, I even bought my boyfriend a Giant Robot shirt, and not very many people know what Giant Robot is (NOT to be confused with Kid Robot).

Well I have paid $40 for a simple t-shirt (very thin material, but high quality) that I got from Guess. It's green, NO LOGOS so people would not know it's a Guess shirt, and it has two buttons near the collar (not a polo or anything). It's one of my favorite shirts and it fits so well, so I think it's worth it. thumbsup.gif

are you rich? tongue.gif

Yes. I'm very aware of people who are like that, but it will always be safe not to emphasis any/ too much createblog-ness because people who buy by brand/not by brand WOULD ACTUALLY purchase this.

Generally speaking, people are brand-sensitive.

&btw, i have 2 aero because they were so cheap + brands seem to be "acceptable" at my school + made out of typical cottons(i think). biggrin.gif

Anyways, it would also be okay to have createblog at the back & bottom, I think.
synatribe
well as far as my opinions go, I dont really care if the designs get featured on the shirts [because like JC said] not everyone has credit cards, although I have enough money in my paypal to buy that shirt, I have to pay for my hosting, but anyways, lets just design for fun then :] and whatever Jusun wants to do with the winning design, he can choose to do [thats if he ever logs in again] :] but yea :]

The second half of the sentence is unclear? I am not sure what you mean.

What I'm trying to say is although there are people who are brand-conscious, there are plenty who are not. There are plenty of people who don't want to wear clothes plastered with "socially-accepted" logos. It just seems like you are undermining the community, that is all.

Regardless, it's not as if we need the createBlog logo to be shown. If something's going to vectorized, it might work out, and it makes it unique. More and more people are starting to stray away from shirts that only have logos on them. Look at all the people who own threadless shirts, for example.
