Ponychan-MLPchan Merger >>>/site/15219

I Have an Idea I'd like to float by everyone over at /fan/.
I've done some of the math and It looks like I could do full color T-Shirts for around $15 dollars before shipping. I'd like to get some ideas for graphic people like for Tee's and if We can get some good non-copyrighted art that people would like too see on some shirts, what I'd like to do is start some pre orders.
If I can get 25 preorders, I can pay for a run of 50 shirts and then start shipping them out.
Is this something you guys would like to see?

How far does "non-copyrighted" go ?
Because if it's pony related, I think it's already copyrighted by default.

If not, I may actually have something I want done… So yes! I'm interested.

It goes as far as "Don't get my butt sued."
And certainly with any original work, I'd want to ensure the artist is suitably compensated. I'd even like to see some fan stuff for the site itself.

Hmm… Site related stuff could actually be fun.
So you'd be making the shirts yourself? As in, from blank shirts?

I'd be ordering them made.
I'd actually really like to see site stuff, but I'd have no idea what to make.

This would be a good start.

Wow, yeah, that'd be a nice idea actually.
A friend of mine drew me this once

Which would be awesome to have on a shirt x:
I could ask him to give me the one without the "yay tom" and just the fluttershy he drew.

Finally got off my lazy butt and made this. What do you think? Not a bad T-shirt design I think.

We have a few banners ourselves, but yeah I like the idea of this.
I would like to see members asking for shirts for themselves though, say anyone comes here with art of their own, or any non-copyrighted art, you can get them a shirt with it for a relatively low price right?

Individual shirts are more expensive since I don't have my own screen printer, but if you have designs you'd like to see and enough people like it I'd be more than happy to do a run of that graphic.

Since I've seen Tom lurking around it might not be a terrible idea to have a Site T-shirt design competition. If we do, and I sell out a full run of 50, I'll give my pledge to donate $5 per shirt to the site. If we get several designs and I do multiple runs, I'll keep that going.

First I'd like to see how many people are interested in that, but this could indeed be interesting.
So we're talking about getting a single design that 50 people would want? We might want to make this not really site related and just hold competition for which shirt people would like to have more.
So, to be clear, we're talking about 50 identical shirts, right?

I figured. (^_^)

Yes, we'd be talking about 50 identical t-shirts. I'd like to do something to help out the site, but since we'd be talking about trying to sell all 50, i can see your point.
The problem is, as near as I can tell, /fan/ doesn't get a lot of traffic, so it would be hard to say how much interest there would actually be. A contest would not only generate interest, but be a good gage of how many people would be interested.

Also, just to be clear, I can do smaller runs than 50, it's just that that the shirts get more expensive, and I might not be able to keep them at $15.

I can get the attention of the rest of the site, and see how many people are interested.
Oh, it's no problem, the site has about 500 unique users per day, so if we manage to get enough people's attention we could reach 50 people! It's all about seeing what people would like to have on a t-shirt.

As far as I'm concerned, the shirts don't have to be MLPchan related, using MLPchan /fan/ as the hub for this will be good enough. I'll see with the rest of the staff, and from there we'll see with the userbase what they'd like to have on the shirts. Will keep you updated!

Do you happen to be on Skype/steam, in case I need any info fast?

Both. And you can use the email info provided to find whichever one you'd prefer.

I have a personal preference for Steam for some reason.
steamcommunity.com/id/tomtheponey

I'll get on the announcements and hosting the contest, let's see where this goes!
I might make another, clearer thread for this, if you don't mind, you of course won't be excluded form any decision making process.

And no problem, just keep me posted
