I'd like to get the ball rolling with new GSN merchandise. Last round was a success, but the shirt quality turned out to be less than stellar, and the amount of work it took to organize, process payment, gather customer info and ship was just ridiculous. I'm going to try and avoid that work load this time around.
So here is the deal. @ PixelKhaos is a designer, and a very good one at that. Why not raise some money to pay the man for two designs? Pixel has quoted us at $60 for a design. So I say lets gets 2 different styles. I'd like to give him a little bit above what he's asking, so lets say $150 for two designs from him, in case we come back with some changes and he has to put in a little extra work. At the least, there will be tshirts and hoodies available. Pixel and myself have talked briefly about ideas for designs, and he was thinking one will be a more bright and retro design, while the other being dark and gritty. I'm excited to see what he comes up with.
Instead of me getting them printed locally, accepting payment for everything and shipping them out myself, we are going to either launch a DesignByHumans shop, where you can buy the shirts at any time - or run a Teespring campaign for a few weeks with the two designs. Design By Humans also has stickers/posters/etc, so we might be able to put some of these designs on other things as well.
BadBadRobot and myself are working closely with @DarkCobra (please thank him for taking the initiative) to get a move on this.
If you would like to donate to help make this fundraiser a success, please send your payment to firstname.lastname@example.org. As soon as we reach our goal, we can get this started!
Side note: I know there has been a request for hats, both beanies and baseball caps. I'm weary of ordering these online because I personally want to make sure the quality of these products is stellar, and not that of a hat you find in those mall booths.
