    Would PlagueFest ever consider making t-shirts and/or wearable attire? I am making myself some t-shirts being themed as funny, gruesome, and serious regarding plaguefest that I plan on sporting. (I will be making the artwork myself). I f I am given permission I will post the designs on here so others can either download them and use iron ons or go to a tshirt site and upload the images for themselves. If Plaguefest is interested in any kind of marketing like this please let me know.

      This would be great. I made a couple myself back in the day for personal use, but I'd love a professionally designed shirt.

              He can offer really low pricing (since hes my brother and he knows I love Plaguefest) and would love to do this for Plaguefest in the futue if they are interested. We could even do threads that vote on t-shirt entries and add those to the attire :smile:

                The problem with the old threads was finding a medium. Everyone wanted to make shirts/hoodies but needed a design. Taz had a terrible case for this because he wanted a designer AND he wanted to make money off the shirts, mad douchebaggery. Dreary has access to a printer, and is offering service to us.

                Re-reading the previous threads i'd like to summon @Brian for his input. Pretty please? We could use the original pF design as an option too. i'd like that :shock:

                If this isn't possible, ima be jelly.

                I'm interested......I've spoken about this idea in my head but never went to pursue it. We would have to look at this as a business model if we want to expand into this. Profits go towards server bills and stuff. Idk I'll let other management give their opinion.

                Edit: Actually I take it back. Tater's post made me think of something. At this point no. Unless there's full supervision of the whole process by management. I don't want to be owing favors or whatnot.

                @Brian and whoever else that would manage this, because this is something I feel very strongly about and would REALLY love to see.

                I'd really enjoy some pF gear, and would pay a decent amount for it, I don't care if the T-shirt is $30-40. What I don't want is the usual merchandise that's solely to milk fans of tv shows, movies, games, etc. for every last dollar with some half-ass designed, poor quality piece of clothing. You know what I'm talking about, with that cheaply printed on logo on a plain white/black T-shirt and put it at $25 when it costed the marketers less than $1 for some Chinese workers to mass produce them and ship them over.

                No, what I'd like to see is a fully designed T-shirt, that's quite an art piece and describes my dedication to Plaguefest and our excellent community, something that stands out, not just some puny little logo in the top corner of a t-shirt.

                We do have talented artists in this community, I definitely would not mind funding a graphic designer/artist for their hard work as well as our community. I know @Bella was a great graphic designer.

                When I say an awesome T-shirt or hoodie that I'd pay $30-40 for, I mean something like these (not these designs, but the ideas of how unique they are to what they represent):

                See what I'm getting at?

                This is the bullcrap I would definitely not buy:

                I don't want people to just read "Plaguefest", I want them to experience it, all on my shirt.

                The reason I'm so into this, is because a lot of things I support, or am a fan of, have some shoddy, crap-job merchandise that is a desperate cry for cash. The material is rough, itchy, and it shrinks the first time you wash it. Then the shitty quality logo wears off in a month, and you end up with a plain black shirt with a little bit of weird bits and pieces of a logo left on the front.

                  The thing is, I don't need to make a profit from it. I think its a cool idea, I do artwork for musicians, indie films as well as comics. I don't need any additional money, I wants me a tee. So I'm making these :smile:. If Plaguefest would like to I would be honored to make this a reality and would like to continue to make the t-shirt images afterwards if it is a go :smile: of course at no cost to them.

                  Definitely a can do sir :smile:. I'm going to be hand drawing these first then putting them into sketchbook pro to finish them with the details. The images will take me a few weeks because of the details but I feel it will be worth it.

                  I think if we did a t-shirt with just the logo it would cost next to nothing, I would like for something much crazier, lke a t-shirt that has the PF logo on the back neck and the entire front a mural done with 4 tone color, green, grey, white and dark purple on a black tee or hoodie.

                    Oh no no, I didn't mean those exact designs, I just meant the ideas of them, and how unique they are to whatever they represent. I didn't mean to copy them >.<

                    I can help spearhead this. I'll figure out the business logistics if there are no objections to this idea.
