More Shirt Stuff: T-Shirt Logo Ideas!

As one of our dear old projects i've ever wanted to finish will probably never go live i'd like to use this post as a kind of memorial: I'm talking about www.shareshirt.de which was thought to become a free (as in free speech) T-Shirt logo sharing site. Everything would've been high quality vectors and licensed under creative commons or similar license, we'd have links to all the large printing companies and nobody would be depandant on "spreadshirt shops" or anything idiotic like that anymore. Sadly we/i don't have the time to implement those ideas anymore, so i'll just link it to this post and always update it. Maybe, just maybe there will be a day when a real sharing site goes online on that domain ... But back to shirts, hers the overview:


But theres more! Everything including the vectors in the nice vector format "svg" will be found inside.

DIY T-Shirt printing? No Problem! (almost)

Starting to lift the outsets of the film on the medium...


After a long dry season of posts here on blog.kanojo.de i proudly announce yet another garage-tinkering-tutorial: How to print t-shirts yourself. While this may not sound special or new at all, the technique we've chosen required a lot of fine tuning to yield *PROFESSIONAL* (and by that i mean really really REALLY good) results. So i considered it worth sharing.

 

While i must admit that i make a equipment-assumption that may not be the case for most, you can work your way around it. What i'm talking about is that recently a cutting plotter moved into this household. A cutting-plotter is almost like a normal plotter - except that it doesn't paint or print the paths (read: vector-files) you give it, but cuts. For those who don't know what a plotter is - imagine a printer that is able to print on a infinitely long roll of paper and doesn't print per line, but prints a arbitrary path (e.g. a sphere, bezier curve, etc.) at a time.
