Kapcon T-shirt Final design

Postby Joker » Mon Jan 09, 2012 3:01 am

So we have a Kapcon 21 tshirt design as shown in the attachment. Note that minor changes are still happening.

The grey areas will be either a bronze or silver metallic colour, whichever looks better.

It's currently being costed up. But it will probably be a bit more than previous years.

So what we wanted to know was what you would consider to be a price you are willing to pay for this shirt.

Please see the poll.

This poll will also let us know how many people are likely to be interested, so PLEASE do fill it out.

If the price is too much for how many people are willing to pay, then we will fall back to the main design (currently on the back) being on the front.

There will be an order form available when we have a good price estimate. We have to estimate because prices will vary slightly depending on how many shirts are ordered.

I like the broad design elements, but that text on the back is quite messy. What are the smudges between the K A and 2 1?

I think with that design a phi would look better than a kappa alpha, and I don't know if I could in good conscience wear a shirt with an omega for a zero.

What Anarchangel said. I think it's best to avoid stuffing in Greek symbols just for the sake of it.

The smudges are a kind of grungy look. I expect that around the text we'll pull it back a bit to make the text clearer.

And we'll be taking the Omega out.

Edited: I had missed the other thread. So it seems that phi is occasionally used for 21. Which seems good enough for me.

I do like the idea on the other thread about kappa alpha being the first two letters of Kapcon...

I agree that phi would look a bit better in this design. So it may be a case of "rule of cool". Hmmm...

I like it! Thank you for pulling this together.

Perhaps I'm in a minority, but I would be more likely to buy the shirt if it just had the current 'ring' symbol on the front and nothing on the back. I'm a fan of the simplicity. (However, I'm not sure if you want feedback like that at this stage.)

Mmmm...

It MAY be possible to get the printing company to do variations.

But it all starts to get really complicated so we shall see.

For a counter-opinion, I really like the winged bit on the back :)
