Westone T-shirts...?

Post by DreamRaven on Thu Oct 07, 2010 7:23 am

Following on from a discussion on stickers with the Westone 'brand', a number of hardcore 'Toners' (if it hasn't been coined, I am claiming first statement!) reckoned they would go for a shirt or two.

You people know who you are!

I have submitted the bird element to Spreadshirt. I await their decision on whether it passes on being able to be printed.

They reckon on a 48 hour turnaround.

Once it is approved, I am getting an estimate of somewhere between £10-£20 per shirt, cost. I, again, want to get one product created and sent to me, so that I can approve the quality of design, from that point, I will create a couple of 'products' in my shop, for people to peruse for purchase.

I am going to put these up at the lowest cost that I can. I do not want to make any money out of it, for a number of reasons:

1st, it ain't my logo, and I have no idea on who owns the logo, brand, shape, etc. I am now aware of the CafeExpress shop that sells shirts with the logo. Now, I am a fan of the logo, the product that I own, and I am pretty sure that Barry, Corsair, Thorn, bowenjaybee, Westbone, Annoying Twit, et al are also fans.

2nd, whilst there is a cost involved in producing shirts, I believe that once that cost has been covered (mainly, by SpreadShirt) and the fragment of my time in redrawing said logo to get the highest quality reproduction, all other reasons for doing so are for the increase of the awareness of the guitars, their excellence, and not 'for profit'.

So... once I have approval from SpreadShirt, I will create the variations of available shirts from SpreadShirt (long sleeve, short sleeve, v-neck, polo, etc) and place the 'Westone' shapes in the best place(s) to _my_taste for you guys to pass opinion on in the best way possible... by ordering the damn things!

Thank you, and good night! Razz

Have been told that the shirt has been despatched. Should have it in a couple of days.

Have found supplier for 'Toner' plectrums, if anyone is interested. Need democratic vote for thickness/guage. See other thread...

T-shirt arrived and photographed!

Post by DreamRaven on Sat Oct 16, 2010 6:25 am

People

The postman delivered again yesterday. Spreadshirt done good!

http://dreamraven.spreadshirt.co.uk/

Images taken this morning of the shirt that I am now wearing.


Just 'unboxed'


A shot (rather poor on my phone, I'm afraid) showing the size of the logo, next to a UK penny


Hopefully showing the silver logo, against the black.


In its full, long sleeved glory.

There are five products on my Spreadshirt store, two black short sleeved shirts, with a white logo, a classic white shirt with a black logo, a long sleeved shirt with a silver logo, and a grey hoodie with a white logo.

http://dreamraven.spreadshirt.co.uk/

If anybody wants a different style (polo shirts, sweatshirts, shorts, whatever) let me know here, and I will layout another product and put it in the shop. If you want it REALLY bespoke, tell me colours and logo position and I will lay it up for you. (Maybe, those guys with the maniacally coloured red guitars want a shirt that is close in colour to it? Shout guys, shout!)

Spreadshirt deals with pretty much everything, taking the money, producing the shirt and delivery. All I do is produce the logo and create the products. Of course, if you have any issues, please let me know, and I will do my best to sort it out.

Nice! I shall be placing an order directly....

Yes; the 'maniacal red' would be nice as would a blueburst!!! (you can't it, but I'm nodding my head vigorously for blueburst!!) Laughing

Thinking about an oversize hoodie with a Ziggy Stardust lightning flash to go with the one on my Dimension IV. That'll go down well on jazz practice nights Cool

I have added some requested products to the shop, including gold logos on black, red shirts and blue shirts.

Apologies, Corsair, Spreadshirt do not make any colour sunburst shirts, I tried, but no luck.

If you have any further requests, let me know and I will see what I can do...

Oh well then... I'm gutted, of course, but will have to console myself by buying a red one, and a blue one, and a black one with white bird and a..... well, you get the picture, eh!! Laughing

Just good work, there, bro... I'll go in with intent come payday!!!

Man... I really want one but I just can't justify $22 and overseas shipping on a t-shirt right now. Hopefully I can grab a t-shirt and stickers and some picks/plectrums next time I get a paycheck, been wanting a gold logo on black tee for a long while...

And Corsair, you could dye the edges a darker blue, maybe? Very Happy

Tie and Dye, John, ... that will give a similar effect and all from your kitchen sink!

Blue burst here we come. In fact you could have lots of little bluebursts all over your shirt to keep each other company.

That's exactly what I was thinking, although dying just the edges might look more like a proper burst. Smile

Thank you for your suggestions, gentlemen; I shall take them under advisement. Laughing

Dye with the tie, definitely!

Man, I am losing my touch! I used to Tie-dye loads of shirts when I was a kid. All you need is some bleach and some of that Dylon fabric dye (easy to get hold of in the UK) if you want multicolours, or just the bleach if you want the original colour to fade.

The stronger the water/bleach solution, the 'whiter' the fade goes.

I hasn't to add that I wouldn't want to guarantee the print, but it certainly looks solidly printed to deal with one or two dyes, followed by a spin rinse on a washing machine cycle. It may also give that 'beaten in' aged look that is so in vogue with 'classic' guitars, these days.

My personal take is that I like a beaten in guitar as much as I like a beaten in car or motorcycle. Yes, guitar's get unavoidable dinks and things whilst they are being used, and if they were accidental, or by you, or by the previous owner, whilst IN USE, that is cool, it is fine, it is part of the 'character' of the instrument.

BUT

Taking the metalwork of a guitar and throwing it in the washing machine with some rocks, and then dragging the body around the garden and hitting it with a chain, before putting it back together, as a way of making the guitar earn MORE money on eBay? Not even if the whole thing came from Fender's custom shop in the first place. I have a load of guitar bits waiting on the two projects that are in my head (and in my shed) but they are both personal, custom, VISUAL ideas that I want to experiment with. When I have that, then I will start putting in the bareknuckle pups and the rest of the machinery in there. Strangely, they also won't have anybody else's brand on the headstock, not even Westone's. There maybe a bird on it, but it will be a DreamRaven...

Beaten in T-shirts? They different! I would be interested in your outcome, if anyone does tie-dye one of the 'Toner' shirts, because, it would bring them closer to 'sToner' shirts, would they not?

I might contemplate it myself, especially as my other halves most hated thing is my tie-dye shirt!

I ordered two T-shirts on 19th and they arrived this morning - one white logo on black standard short sleeve T, one gold logo. Efficient service and decent shirts, good printing. Well pleased - thanks for facilitating this, Keiran.

I see a few more (two or three) orders have recently gone through the Spreadshirt shop.

http://dreamraven.spreadshirt.co.uk/

I, only for marketing purposes, would be interested if anyone here were the people ordering, or, if they got through from other routes...

I am posting this to see if it gains any interest from any newer members who may not have seen the original thread.

Summer is coming, people!!

Stickers, plectrums and shirts, get 'em whilst you are 'toned!
