my only issue with this major is that its asking for a simple botb logo design to win, because thats something i (and other people i assume) want. if there was a simple botb logo tshirt that was already made and the competition was for a creative take on it, (and you could buy both the shirts) id probably buy both of them.

sorry if this is hard to read hehe im not the best at writing

edit: do you take submissions in .flac i dont want my entry to be ruined by bitrate crush

make sure to draw it as an SVG so the large shirts dont look blurry

Yeah I was thinking you guys could maybe do SVG and then submit a PNG + a link to the SVG (the lyceum doesn't have SVG listed in the formats allowed for Draw from what I saw). Vector drawings would scale better so it would be cool if it was allowed.

max size is 3kx3k, and a 4(5) color image that large can be automatically vector traced fairly easily (usually)

Am I right in assuming white and black are their own colors?

No, actually, recent studies have shown that black and white are the same color

I thought SVG would be the way to go too, but it's not one of the suggested file types in their documentation. I'm sure they've dumbed it down for customer accessibility. Irregardlessly[sic], I trust they know how to convert limited color PNGs and JPEGs to whatever they need.

OK I'll try again. The rules say "limit design to 4 colors". Can I use red, blue, green, orange, black, and white? Or can I only use black, white, red, and blue, within the rules for this contest?

The t-shirt is one color. You get 4 printed colors. That's a total of 5 colors. I'm not sure where this idea of black and white being a single color comes from. True, if you have a white t-shirt and use black ink then you are printing one color. The same can be true if you have a black shirt and use white ink. But if you have, say, a green shirt and then print both black and white on it you have printed two colors on top of the t-shirts color. Black and White are not even a requirement; you don't have to use both of them or either of them, but you can use both and if one of them is the color of the shirt then you don't need to screenprint that color.

I know that voting on images is pretty much effortless and really quick, but a longer time to vote would allow for more people to have a chance to vote.

What if there's someone who's busy af and has some time to vote just on the last day? Just putting a hypothetical case out there to show what I mean.

the black and white not being inverted on the back of the T shirt bothers me more than it should

minor nitpick aside ill buy one for sure, but im on vacation until around thursday right now! will buy soon!

edit: the estimated date for the package to arrive (a week or so after August 1) is when I'll be out of state for a whole week; how will I buy one of these without it getting stolen while on vacation? Not sure what to do here.

edit2: I mean I guess I live in a pretty white neighborhood I could just leave a sign that says "please do not steal package unless you want a unfitting tshirt for an obscure website okthx"

oh fun my design is on teh back ^_^ baron shall always make beckonings to those behind!

speaking of which, as it is on the back and using a white background, id say it would look better about "flyer" sized as opposesd to streching from arm to arm.

Bandcamp treatment when? I'm guessing you mean when we'll have shirts available through bandcamp? The whole point of using teespring is so I don't have to act as a warehouse and distribution center. All shirts ordered in this way are made to order.

Wulp, myself and at least two others forgot and/or missed the window of purchase so we'll mostly likely run the fundraising campaign once again in the near future.

I'd like to thank everyone who bought a shirt!!!

When the campaign ended I got an email stating that it has gone to the production phase. There were 32 units sold in total. On the teespring website there is a "Track Your Order" link in the top right. I, having failed to purchase a shirt in time due to running a table at Classic Game Fest and my system drive shitting the bed the day before the last day and being a basket case, have no order number to try it out with. Shipping info
says the apparel should arrive about two weeks after the end of the campaign. That's about 9 more days.

Despite providing TeeSpring with a collection of scribbles in place of my address, they somehow found out where I lived and shipped the shirt out to me!

Now I can confirm that even though the timer on BotB said 3 hours and X minutes left, the timer for teespring was too late. No money was withdrawn from my account nor did I get any notification that I bought it, sux I guess. I had to wait to get enough money rip

Bit of a bump, but I stumbled across this in random searching and realized that I've been wearing my BotB shirt pretty much every other week since getting it, so... yay, spirit! :P

Small Storytime: Last year I was at a game convention thingy in Austin and someone actually recognized puke from the shirt (like they knew each other IRL, I believe). It's a tiny heckin' world sometimes. :P

Every other time, though, people keep asking me "is that a Karl Marx shirt?", which usually leads to an interesting conversation. :P

Either way, belated thanks for the fashionable icebreaker. :D
