Here it is folks!!!
To remove any confusion, I took down all other versions of the STARS shirt. It's been a labor of love that turned sour awful quick. Legal issues these days make everyone gunshy!

I present to you with no further delay the STARS shirt now available at this link:

All colors, all sizes! Get em before they decide to take it down again!

Yer pal,
Tom Berges

This count is necessary because this will determine the amount of t-shirts that need to be made. And in the end will also determine the price of the shirts.

I'd like one in XL please. I don't suppose there are actual chest messurements on these are there? I wear an XL if the shirt is made in the US, but a 2 XL if it's an "overseas" size.

Hi Tom, please correct my order to an adult XL and kids M.

Thanks!

I'll send a PM to ya just to make sure. I can take a L/XL.

The wife just kinda kicks around in them M/L.

I figured you would just order one size to keep costs down. If thats the case L will do for both.

1 XL for me.
My buddy John who always comes to the meetings might want one too...I'll ask him.

OK, there is no way I'm the same size as Josheee or Criz_Bee. So can you change mine to a 2XL?

01-02-2008, 03:07 PM
I just talked with John and he wants one 2XL.
BTW...Tom, will you be collecting money first and then doing the run, or are you going to eat the cost ahead of time and distribute after the fact?

I'm in either way...just curious

Tom_B
01-02-2008, 06:26 PM
UPDATE!!!!

I am still trying to work dumbing down the original t-shirt design so we can go with that...or something close to that. Screening that kind of detail using so many colors would not make it worth it for anyone...time wise or price wise. So I'm still working on a resolution on the original design.

Thanks all for being patient!

No worries Tom! With your attention to detail I'm sure it will turn out great. And class up our monthly meetings.

Can you change mine to a 2XL when you get the chance?

So, I've been looking around on theForce.net today, and found out that Spokane has something similar going on to what we are doing with the STARS meetings.

They have this site set-up:
http://www.cafepress.com/thespokantina

Maybe that's the direction we could go if there is a printing problem/legal issue with the current logo?

JoshEEE
04-14-2008, 09:41 PM
I love their logo...it's awesome.

Tom, if you'd like some help, let me know. I know the T-shirt printers and can collect money and all that. Let's get some shirts rollin.... http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

The Spokantina artwork is totally stolen from the Dark Horse comic Star Wars Underworld: The Yavin Vassilika.

Check out this link. Check out the Bith. The other characters are also lifted from the same comic, but I don't have an online example handy.

Tom,

I'm sorry that I didn't think of this but my uncle is the owner and operator of RaceCals and MJB Printing. He does all the sponsor and race stickers for NASCAR and almost every other race orientated company on earth. He does silk-screening and all sorts of other stuff.

Want me to ask? Wouldn't hurt if I did. Let me know.

Tom_B

Well, I might have it figured out...but let me show you the art and then we can decide what we want to do with it.

Here it is:


This is all original artwork, so there should be no issues with getting these done over at CAFEPRESS. I'm going to be posting the options and you guys can go and get what you want in what size you want!!!

But first before all that, I want to know what ya think of this design?

Thoughts???

YOU HAVE GOT TO BE FREAKIN KIDDING ME.....!!!!!


Hello,

I’m a little confused here…can you please explain to me why this image was pulled when you have other images throughout the site much like this one:
http://www.cafepress.com/buy/star+wars/-/pv_design_details/pg_1/id_22043824/opt_/fpt_/c_666/
and
http://www.cafepress.com/buy/star+wars/-/pv_design_details/pg_2/id_8685220/opt_/fpt_/c_666/
and

and
http://www.cafepress.com/buy/star+wars/-/pv_design_details/pg_6/id_4686327/opt_/fpt_/c_666/
and
http://www.cafepress.com/thespokantina.127766297

The image is totally handmade. The font used was HANSOLO which is used in most of the STAR WARS themed shirts on your website. And is a legit and legal and free font type.
There is no mention of STAR WARS anywhere on the shirt…is it the use of the word STARS? Last time I checked that was not a copyrighted word.

Any specifics you can give me on the subject would greatly improve my understanding on the matter.

Thanks,
Tom Berges

Well, the character of Boba Fett is copyrighted by Lucasfilm so it's no surprise, really. That doesn't make it ok for some of the others to be up there, although, some aren't using the actual likeness of the characters, so they fall into more of a gray area.

Even though I know it's not your intent, you are attempting to profit off of characters that are owned by Lucasfilm. Cafepress just has to cover themselves in this matter. It sucks, I know, but that's the way the law is.

Anyone have any suggestions for proceeding with this project? I am pretty much done with the effort. I may have a few more possible solutions but when those are extinguished, I am done with shirts...for now. A silly little graphic sure has brought on a huge pain in my butt!

Ah well...I'll keep trying. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Dude, first of all, thanks for putting so much time into this to get us all those shirts.

How about just the font itself? Very similar to what you did at the very top of this page, just without Luke and Leia?

I very much like what some other guys did here:

I can, and will do that! I'll do just the Font. I just really wanted to get us a cool shirt, ya know? I'm kinda pissed off right now but it's no ones fault. Cafe Press is playing it safe. I would too if I were them.

OK, I'll post the new graphic later today. Once I do, please try and jump on these as fast as you can? They may not last long.

Thanks everyone!!!! We may have this licked...not as cool. But we'll all get shirts if it fu&#ing kills me!!!! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

A comment someone posted earlier (cant' find it now) gave me an idea. Besides the STARS logo and name spelled out, we should put in a tag line on the shirt that makes fun of our club status compared to some of the other clubs we saw at that Celebration IV panel. Something like:

No Officers
No Dues
No Tomatoes

Damn, I knew I should have placed my order before this weekend. Artoo, let us know what actually shows up in the mail. It will be cool if you actually got one of Tom's shirts before it was taken down.

I'm primed and ready for when the next image goes up Tom.

Will do. It's still on target to arrive Tuesday. I wish I would have thought to have it go to my work instead of home. Hopefully, the apartment managers will be in the entire day when it arrives. I'll probably come home during my lunch break to check too. *fingers crossed*

I just placed my order too! Thanks Tom for all your hard work on this project. Our logo is very cool. Would have been great to get the Boba Fett design with the hamburger as well; such a great design:)

I like the different style options as well with a long sleeve option since we are still experiencing winter weather in Washington and it's almost May. I ordered 3 shirts; 1 long sleeve and 2 short sleeve for those summer conventions. I love the mug also and ordered an extra in case I should ever break one; great for hot chocolate!

Thanks Criz for the coupon code too!

Artoo,
How does the shirt and mug look? Is the design crisp? Did you get a black or colored shirt? Please describe...I would like to know what the quality is like. I hope you are happy with the shirt.
I have a bunch coming with the latest design. So I would love a quality control report.

Thanks!

Tom, the shirt looks great. I went the cheaper route and got it on an economy white t-shirt. The mug looks good too, but it's a little hard to see the "burgers and bounty hunters" slogan due to the size reduction.

All in all, I'm happy with what I got.
