SNBF-XIII shirt possibilities
« on: January 20, 2020, 07:28:20 PM »
I have a bunch of uncompleted work that I was not really digging.  I finally came up with something that was okay...



When I came across Kyle's artwork he submitted either last year or the year before.  i tweaked his art to fit on a shirt and came up with this one (with Kyle's blessing)



Let me know what you think....

Looking sweet AF! The best one yet. Nice collab with Kyle. Steve, he posted more on SC back in the days, Binh and I shared some sand with him in the past.

I'm going to contact a possible new screen printer today and see which one he says will work out best.  I think that will be the "design plan" for picking this years logo since Kyle's bat ray is on black background and tough to truly get rid of. (Idea is the shirt will be black and only need white to overlay on it).  Just in the slim chance that Kyle's bat can't be screen printed or converted to vector easily, I'll work on that for SNBF-XIV to have it ready for print in Jan! 

I miss the days when my cousin ran a screen printing business and always hooked us up with great products at a great price.  Now I'm like every shlep and have to pay retail (or their version of discount)

It's all Tom and Don's fault! They "hooked" me on mud marlins and sharks!

So, (unfortunately once again) I've been put on the back burner from a new silk-screening company and it will be too late to screen print them.  Everyone seems pretty busy and/or doesn't want to have people order one or two of each type and then there is still trying to ship them out to people to get it to them in time.  The artwork also selected was not properly layered, so is super difficult to layer because of all the small dots in the colored section and making it into Vectored Art would be time consuming.


One way or another I will have shirts made, but there is a possibility I will have to use the online store and you guys will purchase them directly.  I will re-touch the art so it correctly fits and "pops" on the apparel.

Okay, so here's the deal.  The artwork that was submitted is too shotty to vectorize in the allotted time and that's exactly what I'm running out of.  I'm working on fixing it to make the shirts in the online shop again, so you will have to order directly off the website when done.  I will post up when the shirts are completed for order, but I expect them to be online at least by Wednesday the latest.

I also ordered some vinyl stickers.  I didn't get a lot, but they should arrive here by tonight for me to check out.  I think I'm going to mail a few stickers for each order made for an apparel purchase.  I also might have more made depending on how good these ones come out.

I also saw that these last two months that another site is doing a "Bait Making Contest" in which they are trying for bat rays to use for shark bait.  It's been tough the last few years to catch any bigger models, so I'm not sure how this effect the local bite or not.  Just remember that the SNBF is a Catch and Release event, so harvested bat rays do not count for the biggest bat.

Vinyl stickers came in, but only a small limited supply of 50 and already 10 have been swiped up.  I might get some more just in case.

I want a sticker! I think all the winners of previous bat fights should get a sticker, especially if you won it for SD  ;)
