....because sometimes it's just fun to scare people.
I received the latest in the prototypes of one of my design concept shirts. This one features a Japanese Demon with the Pungentees logo on the front and the back. The logo on the back is far too large, but I wanted to test this vendors printing process more than the actual shirt. As I'm continuing to use an American Apparel 2001 T-Shirt, I expect the fit and material to be consistent with other prototypes I received from an outfit in Texas. They, however, took too long in production and shipping. The new vendor took exactly ten days to get me a shirt after order, including an email exchange confirming exactly what I wanted design wise.
Everything looks to be on schedule for a Christmas Day launch with three unique designs. The image below is dubbed Akooma. The prototype has a large image pattern on the front with a large logo on the back. The actual front image will be scaled down by 50% with the company logo being reduced by 66%. The image I have in my head is something relatively discrete, requiring the viewer to take a closer look to see the manufacturer.
Is that really what the back of my head looks like?!
