This would be te_h ghey.
Some inuendo might be okay, though like sty sez they are mostly all clichéd now.
Big jugs look good on a 5.9 so spread your legs and trust the rubber?
Or there could be an inside joke - I'd say one but I'm not in on any of them.

trouble with climbing shirts, is that if you wear one, people come up and say things like,
"oh my god, you climb!!!?! like, wow, rocks and stuff??!?!! isn't that so dangerous?? like, i totally climbed once, on this wall at camp..."

I just had a motherfucking epiphany. Make this shirt and I'll buy one.

Start with this

but instead of a cowbell, you've got a #11 hex!!!

It's motherfucking brilliant. I just paid for your second divorce, you can thank me later.

I originally googled for a pic of a slung #11 but couldn't find one (mine are wired). Send me a pic and I'll use it. I've already done the basic design with a wired hex and have a rough estimate for a 20 shirt order.

It is a good idea.

I slapped up some art and went to post it to ask "How's this" and see you have dlinz offering to make.

So - he can do it for you then, but if for whatever reason it don't come down, get back to me and let me know if you want any changes on this art. It's not a big deal to draw the cord instead of wire as well. Damned ole schoolers.....

Happiegrrrl, it looks like you traced one of the standard pics of a BD hex but I like that better than the JPEG I used in my design. Go ahead and run with it although I'd suggest rotating the image 90 degrees clockwise (I thought it looked best that way on my design).

As long as you don't use those cheap extra-long, heavy cotton t-shirts I'll definitely buy one.

I always loved the old Kinnaloa shirts, half for the genuine sentiment and half for the mockery of the silly poseurs with "No Fear" logos:

"Know Fear."

....okay. Here is the change to cord and a little beefier text.



I prefer the orientation as is, because it is the way a person would be setting the piece en route, and has an "active/positive energy" graphics-wise. Subliminal crap, like when they say always have the belayer in the picture actually looking at the leader to add a sense of engagement.

If Angry has any changes he wants, I'll make those for him and then finish the job and post the link so people can find it.

The shirt types are as on the other pages of my shop. Click on the link in my signature, or or quicker by clicking one of the links to the photos I posted upthread, so see what is available.

There are several styles/qualities and I will pretty much put the design on them all so people could choose which they prefer. I have tested many of the styles and they are pretty decent quality. The organic cotton shirt is particularly nice and has a cream color as opposed to stark white. The good news is that CafePress has an excellent customer satisfaction policy, so if you get it and it sucks, or is the wrong size or just not what you expected, you can get an exchange or credit or refund.

There will be a black on white in many of the styles, but I will also make different print colors on colored shirts(tan print on dark brown, or navy print on light blue shirt for example), and you can get an idea as to that by looking at other designs in my shop, like this page: http://www.cafepress.com/climbaddict/5649523

So....after you sell 8 shirts to the Gunks crowd, what're you going to do with all the remaining ones?

(just kidding)

Wouldn't it make more sense for the design to have a couple slung Hexes hanging downward, however? (i.e., their orientation when they're clanging around on the n00bs' harnesses?)

'If a Hex swings around on a rack, and has no other Hexes to bang into, does it still make a sound?"

Actually, I always thought that someone needs to do a shirt with the PETZL logo that says instead: "PRETZL."

Oh, and the shirt that Angry used to have that simply said "BELAY BITCH-->"

I'm assuming you mean the hex "more cowbell" design?

If yes, I am waiting to see if the design is what Angry was thinking. If no changes, and I get confirmation today, I will finish the work and post the link to shop at late tonight. Otherwise it will be some time on Monday.

It will be shown as a design on the front page of my shop: http://www.cafepress.com/climbaddict and when it is ready, you will easily see the design on the page.
- Click on it, and it will open to the various choices of shirts
- Click the shirt style you are interested and a new page will open with the details(bigger photos, color and size choices
- Follow the instructions if you want to purchase. Just like an other online purchasing.

The print size on the hats is very small - only two inches tall/wide. I think the graphic would be too small to read the words.




Okay, the "More Cowbell" page is up, here:
http://www.cafepress.com/climbaddict/5946448


So far, just the black print is up. I will add colored shirts/color print later on. Maybe will be ready for Monday evening.

....maybe I should do a side business of freelance design with people's requests....hahahah. god help me, that's why I left the fashion industry.

The bouldering sign sounds like a cafepress design, and you might be able to find it by searching their site, but I have not seen it. Look up 'bouldering" and then it gives you a choice between choosing "Relevance"(best selling) and "Newest Arrivals"(newest designs added to the site).

It's probably many, many pages back, with a lot of garbage to weed through. But, if you don't find it by next week, I would be willing to make it up for you and add it to my shop. I actually have wanted to do some other road sign designs for a long time and have procrastinated greatly.

This weekend is rain and I may be sitting in my tent, so am bringing my laptop along to work on the train and if any juice left, in the tent if I am stuck there. I'm working on a new design "See no beta, hear no beta, speak no beta. Climb Onsight" which will have the three monkeys theme.

Does the originator get a discount?

Yes, Angry. It's a little convoluted though. Choose the item(s) you want, and PM me here with the url(s) from the shop. I will send them to a separate page that has the discounted price and email you back with the url to locate them. Then you simply order as usual.

In a case like this one, where others seem interested, you will get them at cost + $1.00 which is the least markup possible. The site automatically adds that on. Markups range between $2.50(stickers) and $16.00(tracksuits), with shirts around $7 - $9. So, a $25 shirt will be somewhere around $19. All the products have different costs, so it's quite variable. But you can see the bases yourself by looking at the cafepress site(not the climbaddict one) as if you were going to make your own items.


Also - I still will add colored prints/shirts on the cowbell design - early next week.

Now before everyone else comes running with ideas....I ain't going to be a free design agency!
- I will reject anything I don't want to do, for reasons that may make no sense. My prerogative.
- It's not all that hard to make your own stuff on cafepress, so...try it; you might like it.
- I ain't really interested in doing freelance design for pay. $75 an hour and I am slow as molasses and have dial up which makes the whole thing take forever. Your simple design t-shirt will cost you $200. At least.

Hey, you were in fashion? Why go back to it if it sucked?

Here's one I thought was pretty cool, and what makes it even better is the fact that the climber could be climbing the words

Or J TREE

or POTRERO

or HUECO

or BUTTERMILKS

or CHOSS etc, etc.

Wouldn't it make more sense for the design to have a couple slung Hexes hanging downward, however? (i.e., their orientation when they're clanging around on the n00bs' harnesses?)

Sign me up for the cowbell shirt; I also vote for the hanging / clanging orientation.. maybe even show a couple of them hanging together?

I was down in the Gunks about 12-13 years ago and saw a guy wearing a Black Diamond T-Shirt that said "Crack Climber" and had a climber jamming up a buttcrack. Always wanted them to make those again, I'd buy one for sure.

I don't know what you're talking about in the "selling 8 shirts to Gunks climbers" thing.... If you are referring to the photo someone else posted with he word "Gunks" and the person under it....that's not my design, for one thing. It's already available online. I think in a cafepress shop(just search Gunks). If people are interested in that design with different crag names...they should contact the shopkeeper who made that design if possible, and ask. I won't copy that idea.

The cowbell design is as is. You don't like it, make your own. As I have said, I still need to add the colored print/shirts in. Maybe tonight....

Probably, that's still awesome though. I'd buy one if someone made one on the D/L *coughinthintcough*

What the hell is a Petzl dud though? Perhaps a Pretzel guy would be even funnier.

I think they gave it a wee shot at one point, a wiggly guy- I think he still goes on their chalk bags...
Just did a search. Their new chalk bags don't even get them. It seems I was mistaken- my Buddy definitly has one on his, though.
A funky wee stick man made from sgwiggles.

Shirt idea- i wouldn't wear it, but I would sure think it was funny if i saw someone else wearing it.

I still have some color shirts to add to the "More Cowbell" group, but the guy's ones are done. They are here:
http://www.cafepress.com/climbaddict/5946448


I had a rather tasteless bit of inspiration this morning....Here's the rough sketch. The hangers/rings would be line drawings, not photos, and there would be bolts drawn on and the rings would be dropped to the end of the slots as they would be if on a wall.

Should I add it in?(Not asking "Will you buy?" but more like "Is it too repulsive?)

Also - I can't remember what the orientation is for anchor hangers....Is this correct?




Also, going to add a "Don't Hate Me Because I'm a Gym Climber" text design.(And maybe add "boulderer," "old school" and "sport climber" options.

Usually these hangers are set horizontally with the bolt hole at the top. Just rotate the left one clockwise a 1/8 turn and put the ring toward the center, the right one gets a counter-clockwise turn.

As for hanger orrientation - I would probobly take some artistic liberties here. The way they're orriented in your pic isn't right, but I think it would probobly look better than the correct orrientation.

Agreed on that as well.

I think you should also make a version for the older generation climbers.


On the back?

More Boobs, Less Bolts

Now this shirt is really turning into something.

I will be the first one in line to buy one if I can have it in pink with a girl cut!

"more boobs, less bolts" on the back, eh...?

well.....I'll do a variation with and without. Cost is higher for the second side printing, but that isn't a problem really. The price is still reasonable.

But my thinking was the design is a spin on nipple piercings, and I wasn't seeing just chicks. I was imagining a Mr. Clean genie man sort of guy....hahahah.

I agree that the horizontal hanger, which was how it was shown in the sample I am referencing here: http://www.climbinganchors.com.au/...-single-captive-ring would look less attractive. I guess I must never have seen just the ring/hanger in real life. When I recall the ones I have seen they usually have the chains or just the hanger, and I remember them as being set at the angle. Oh well....

Pink femme style is definitely available. Once I get it put up I will post the link.

In my experience, nipple piercings did not work well with climbing. Got them caught on a rope or a squeeze chimney one time too many and decided the lil bastards had to come out.

I miss them sometimes, but then I remember that I don't have to be careful removing my seatbelt anymore and it's not so bad.

Cool! I could see that, too!

I was thinking in terms of more trad chicks on the rock than bolts on the rock. You know, a feminist call to action! Wink

The horizontal doesn't look near as good. And you certainly have seen them at an angle. For starters, there are hangers out there in just about any orientation, either because whoever set them didn't know what they were doing or just from wear and movement.

However, and I admit to not being anywhere close to an expert on placing bolts, the ones on your T-shirt look pretty close to what I would think is correct. Far closer than horizontal certainly. The clipin point, i.e. where the draw is going to hang, should be directly below the bolt.

Interesting. Why do the hangers with the rings go horizontal but without the rings at an angle? Maximize wear of the hanger I guess??

Yeah, that was the way they were shown when I snagged the reference pic.... I figured out a solution though... I'm going to make the ones on my shirts be buttonheads(more nipple-esque....) and if anyone says th hanger is wrong I'll just say...."they're spinners"

It is going to be a bit before I get this design up. I could go with plain b/w line art but I want to try to make the illustration have gradations of grey color and shadow/highlights. This will be a stretch for my elementary Adobe Illustrator skills....we'll see what happens.

It just has to do with the cut of the hanger and single ring verses a double ring like this...

If this only had one ring the rope would be running between the ring and the rock.

Once the work is complete in Illustrator, one "Saves for the Web" which opens up the image in another window, with options to save as GIF, JPEG, PNG, etc., and a tool to detail the image size.

Select PNG-24. and make sure the 'transparency' box is checked(the transparency allows the image to be printed on the dark colored shirts).

For the size, go to the area marked "image size" and change it to be a set of numbers that will make the image size to be equal to or greater than 2000 X 2000 pixels. Must be at least 2000 X 2000 to get optimal print quality. You can do larger, especially for the ...I forget what they call the women's BIG size shirts... but for most products it makes no visible improvement to go larger.

As not all designs are square, you need to adjust the height width accordingly. If the width is 2500 and the height is 1500, you can see it is going to "same as" 2000 X 2000.

I do all my work in Illustrator. Even photo images(which I have very few of) I will do what is to be done in Photoshop and then move it to Illustrator for text and other work. I'm poorly skilled in Photoshop, to start, and even though I was taught Illustrator back in the early '90's and still using version 10, all my stuff comes out exactly as I envision it.

When I started, I really just could not understand the CafePress "way" with those templates.... I have never used them. I draw in Illustrator using "actual" measurements, and then do the size adjust as I described above to get the right number of pixels. Works perfectly.

The one thing to know is that, for the dark shirts, you need to keep something in mind. Because they first lay a layer of white on those shirts, IF your image has 'cutout' area where you would want the shirt color to show through, you need to set the file to "Show Transparency Grid" (under the "View" column). If you do not, then the cut away areas will be printed as white instead of being cut away in the print process to show your shirt color through.


....I always tell people CafePress is easy, and it IS. Once you get used to it.....It is murder in the very beginning for most people. The good news is that their forum people are incredibly patient and helpful. Even though they get asked the same questions over and over and over - MANY more times than a shoe thread - they answer as if it's the first time anyone's ever asked. You'd never see "Do a Search" or STFU, N00b" over there.....

...instead of sizing to massive amounts of pixels, why not just up the DPI to 300? that's default for AI and easily importable to PS.

and if you know your dimensions to start out with, then just make a document of those exact sizes (in either PS or AI), set DPI to 300 (for print) and CMYK. then export as a PNG instead of "save for web" which will compress your document.

then again, I've never used cafePress...just speaking from print experience. they may have a different system over there and they just might want 2k+ pixel documents...but my guess is a higher DPI will do the trick.

You may be right on the latest version; I just tested my version (AI 10) and it doesn't have PNG as an option on export.

I DO make my designs in AI as exact size, but when I do the "save for web," the dimensions are smaller than a 2K x 2K. I do recall their explanation that this size WILL produce the correct DPI for their print process. So...that's what I do.

You mention an item that should be noted for people using cafepress. That is that images need to be in RGB and not CMYK. Don't ask me what the deal is - I assumed it was something to do with the uploading process. The other thing is - my version offers PNG - 8 and PNG - 24. Must use the PNG - 24.

why in the world would they print with RGB? either their total noobs or they have some sort of "automated" process...GG technology.

either way...build in AI export as PSD (keep layers writable) save as PNG -24 (if your AI doesn't have the option) but saving for web will hurt your compression. then again...I don't really care about how yall get your t-shirts so I guess it doesn't really matter :D

I am not 100% clear but I think the actual print does go through a conversion to CMYK and the RGB enables them to show the designs through the website - honestly...I am not sure. It is all written within their website, and I did go through it all when I started. But it's info I didn't need to retain so - didn't. Too lazy to go look it up and advise right now.

CafePress does a pretty good job in printing. They have limitations that sometimes irritate shopkeepers. Like that the color white cannot be printed on light color shirts(if you have white in your design it will not be printed and the shirt will show through). Also the design can only be printed centered or as a smaller print on left upper corner. If you want the design lower than what it would default to, you have to incorporate invisible dots or something(which won't print) in the artwork to force it lower in placement.

It's a print-on-demand deal and not actual screenprinting. I am not sure how it all works technically, but I have been very satisfied with the quality of the work. Of course, my designs are not really complicated and neither are the majority of cafepress things. But I am fairly certain that a person with good graphuc arts skills could produce quality sophisticated designs(with fading and overlapping colors and elements, for instance)

Happie - has anyone suggested to you making a stinky memorial shirt? It may be a sweet but corny way for us all to remember him by. And he had so many funny posts that could be used. Just a thought.

It's certainly not the same around here without him, is it?

I am not 100% clear but I think the actual print does go through a conversion to CMYK and the RGB enables them to show the designs through the website - honestly...I am not sure.

Wow. For somebody supposedly involved in the T-shirt industry...

RGB, additive color space, used by light – like the light emitted from your monitor

CMYK, subtractive color space, used by pigmented sources that absorb/reflect light – like your T-shirts.

All printers need to convert to CMYK for printing, unless they’re doing some one-step iron-on; in which the computer just automatically does the transition. Many print shops will now have you send the image in RGB (along with the color profile) because they have better tools for getting what you see on your screen onto your T-shirt. It’s probably just easier than having dozens of people call up everyday asking what CMYK is, how they get their, and/or why doesn’t their image look the same anymore.

Happie - has anyone suggested to you making a stinky memorial shirt? It may be a sweet but corny way for us all to remember him by. And he had so many funny posts that could be used. Just a thought.

It's certainly not the same around here without him, is it?

Sty certainly is missed. One can see it in every reference someone posts. He was as compulsive as the postliest among us and he was a good guy. He's an rc.er who will be memorialized for a long time to come.

About a memorial shirt - I have to admit I am not sure how I would proceed with that. I didn't know him or interact with him closely enough to have an insight into his personality that I feel I could do his memory justice.

If the community did a group brainstorm and came up with something I would be happy to realize the concept, with some caveats.

I would set it up in a "stand-alone" shop separate from mine, and there would be no markup, except the unavoidable $1 that CP adds automatically. If someone who knew Sty well could say a charitable organization that he cared for, that money could be donated to that organization(Perhaps people would prefer to have a markup after all, knowing that would be the case. Hovever, I am a bit leary of doing that out of concern for the transparency aspect of the situation. May be better to simply name the organization and people could donate beyond that automatically added amount on their own.

The problem: I am headed on a trip in a couple of days and would likely not be able to complete the project before I leave. If the design was a very simple design consisting mostly of text(example might be a rc.com facsimile quote of his with the little box around it), that I could probably get done in a few hours time. Still - to get a consensus from the rc'ers would take a bit if time.

There are other people here who know cafepress and could get the project done, so that is an idea. If there is interest, maybe they will come forward and offer.

I would say I am more involved in the CafePress shopkeepers group. If I were "in the t-shirt industry" I would be working directly with screenprinters and selling my goods wholesale as well as retail through an online outlet.

That's been suggested to me. I'm not into it for a variety of reasons.

I don't know what people think ClimbAddict is, but I can tell you, a money-maker it's not. It's more like a hobby. I gave out more in donated goods last year than I brought in as income. Significantly more. And I am fine with that.

If I include the labor involved in the thing, I would have to somehow come up with a design that sold thousands in order to recoup that investment.

Perhaps I may expand to make ClimbAddict a section of a larger shop someday. Perhaps. I have other things I would like to do before that, though.

As for the RGB/CMYK thing - As I mentioned, I read about that when I began the shop. That was about two years ago, I think. I didn't have any reason to retain the information at a level I could call it up at a spontaneous moment's notice. And so - especially since if I actually needed to have that information again, I know where it is - I wrote what I did. I've got things of higher priority going on right now than fact-checking a random rc.com post.

I made this design - it just won first place in a small contest at my local gym for a gym tee.

The text says: "On the fifth day, God created the dyno."



And oddly enough, a friend and I also came up with the whole "chalk is like heroin" and "'biners as nipple rings" ideas.

The beta version of the Boltits design is up. Here's the url:
http://www.cafepress.com/climbaddict/5970906

When I come back from my trip, I will see about redoing the design to give a more realistic effect on the hangers. I wasn't able to get anything I like in Illustrator, but this morning I remembered a trial version of a PS program that creates a chrome look. No time to find it and work on it at this time though.

It's a print-on-demand deal and not actual screenprinting. I am not sure how it all works technically, but I have been very satisfied with the quality of the work.

I too own a Cafepress shop (Insert shameless self-promotion - http://www.cafepress.com/sspaintball). From what I understand it is a Direct Print system where it actually dies the fibers of the shirt more then a normal screenprint. Most screenprints are more of a layer of ink on the shirt (yeah dud dude). I have a Cafepress shirt and have been very pleased with quality. It has held up well and retained the print, and it's actually a white image on a black shirt.

Just my $.02

i used to have one that said: just because i slept with you last night, doesn't mean i'll ski with you this morning.

i also had one that said: life's to short to ski with ugly men

quoted because i made a slip up the first time i posted the t-shirt quote
hehe, I thought the original text was pretty dirty, even for a rc.com reg-u-lar.

I updated the art on the "Boltits" design to have the metallic effect. Here's the photo:

By the way - thanks to the people who bought some of my designs after reading this thread. Appreciate it, and hope you are pleased with the shirts!

I started working on this one night and lost interest.

If anyone makes this into a shirt, I'll buy it.

Basically it's a Free Tibet shirt that's got a topo of El Cap where the tibetan stuff normally goes and it says Free El Cap.

Here's my very rough draft.

Not an idea, but a comment.
The absolutely best climbing shirt I ever saw was on a soccer mom at a youth soccer game. She had on an Everest 1996 Expedition T-shirt.
I said, where did you get that? She said From my brother. I said, Who's your brother? Her answer...Ed Viesturs.
OMG.

I know! Our daughters went to the same school, were in soccer together. I run into her occasionally, get an Ed update from her.

My friend found a shirt at goodwill that has a silouette of a guy on an overhang on the front (doesn't look cheesy like usual), and on the back it just says "keep rising".

One of my favorites (had a second one made up when the original one died)

Gravity

It's not just a good idea

Just finished the rough version of the "Free El Cap" shirt... It's definitely going to get better then this, though.



Do people think it would be better without the dragon things, or with the dragon things holding el cap instead of the cup thing, or what

The fair use act states that if an image is used as a parody t it's original form, it's fair use of the image and does not break the copyright. We'll see if I get by with it.
