Bothcon Shirts Hot Off The Presses

Postby Staff » Wed Jun 15, 2011 11:31 pm


Bothcon Shirt Front

Just picked up the Bothcon shirts today and they look fantastic. Screenprinted on Navy blue American Apparel tees, the Greg Hyland art just pops off the fabric. And the printer did an awesome job preserving all the colors, shading, and gradients of the source material. Above, the front of the shirt, and the back of the shirt is below. Bothcon attendee shirts are exactly like the ones you see; shirts used for contest prizes and ones for sale won't say Bothcon2011 on them.

For sale, you say? XD

Then I hope you ordered some XXL ones, because I will be the first one to order one.

I've been hanging around this website for so long, having a FBTB t-shirt is kind of mandatory in my case... ;)

W-H-A-T?! I agree with Daz Hoo. A FBTB shirt is definitely mandatory. I really like that the artwork is on the back instead of on the front. Now people at conventions will immediately know which website we're supporting. :lol:

Details for purchase?

Do the ones who mailed in MOCs for the BothCon get one of these great shirts too? I even would pay for it

Considering that Ace was asking me for my shirt size in the chat, I can only hope that it was for these awesome shirts (and not for any creepy reason).

I read in some automotive magazine that the way a car looks from the rear is much more important than the way a car looks like from the front, because the rear of the car gets looked at longer while in traffic. You can follow cars for miles, looking at the back of them near constantly, and only glance in the rear-view mirror to see the front of car for fractions of a second.

Yeah, it's different for people, because you talk to the front of them, but by then, you already know what the front of their shirt says. To publicize and sell anything with T-shirts, it's probably better to put contact info on the back of the shirt. That way, when the line moves at conventions, you've got people gazing at the back of the T-shirts, and they can pull out their smartphones and check the site at their leisure.

i hear what you're saying about the back and all, but i decided to put the url on the sleeve. all my shirts are back at the shop getting the sleeves done. so the shirts i gave away that are out in the wild right now truly are limited.

i'm also getting more sizes done as it was a mistake of mine to assume everyone in the world wears the same size shirt as me.

I would not mind getting a medium one. The x large I got from BOTHCON is a bit large on me. Do these have the printing on them as well like the one I have now?

yes and no. it has the same logo on the front, greg's artwork on the back. there is no bothcon logo. there is a new screen on the sleeve which is the website address.
