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?

This is a great idea.
SWHA.
It should be lewd, BTW.

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.

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.

I'd be a fan of something with a graphic of some nuts on the front,
on the back "Climbers have a bunch of nuts"

or something.

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.
