^^ Third(ed)? Hat looks dope "Dopey"

Hey guys, I've lurked these forums for awhile now. I'd like to share my brand that is reaching its 1st year of being in business. Were based out of Downtown Toronto, All screens are shot at my home, and all shirts are printed at my home. If you guys could leave some feedback/comments that'd be great! Thanks for looking!

Honestly not my style but I dig the attention to detail and the fact that the designs appear to very cohesive. Looks cool!

Nothing catches my eyes I personally hate a shirt with nothing but a quote on it. No design or anything. Feels like there is nothing behind it.
EDIT: Unless it looks really really good. Otherwise I don't like it


Already a brand called Visionary.

lol and another brand called Vizionary Villainz

Somebody please explain tax resale to me.
I want to order from AA and it requires this tax resale certificate & number...

So far I've found this:
Resale Certificate
But I don't know what to do after I fill it out... Is it official after I fill it out and do I just send it to AA?
In essence, what do I need to do to register for alstyle???

A well explained response to my question will be APPRECIATED!!

I priced my products on how I wanted to value the brand. The hoodie was printed with water based inks, custom hem tag on bottom left, on Independent Trading Co. (same hoodies Diamond and Obey print on), which are top notch quality. Anything priced lower I would feel would be devaluing the product.

Thanks for the comments guys! The consistency between designs and overall brand aesthetic is the most important for me and usually what I look for when looking at other brands.

@jayoceansss I think $60 for a quality hoodie isn't bad at all, price = value. Whats shipping costs to Canada like? Might purchase that hoodie for myself.

Agreed, I priced my stuff at what its value is but I honestly don't expect it to sell right off that bat at full price. I always have the promo code in my signature available and others floating around the internet for people who are into the product to pick it up at a more reasonable cost.

Those prices are super fair. With shipping its the same as buying at any store for retail value. Everything looks great man!

We just released a few summer items. Personally looking back its pretty amateur but I had a lot of fun with it and got lots of great feedback.. But fall is going to be great line with a lot of small touches put in. We are also working on a denim style coat. Our snapbacks are almost in to for those who messaged about them.

Ahh I respect that then.
I know some people just come out with their first release with high prices, but at least you have valid reasoning for your price.

I respect what you guys are saying. I just personally have always been conscious about charging people too much. While could have priced my tees at 25-28, I priced it ad 20, and my crewnecks at 25 as opposed to the regular. I find that people appreciate it more, and they're more comfortable at buying more than one item at that time or come back again. And I didn't sacrifice quality, and I made enough profit to call it decent.

I know personally I'm more inclined to buy things at a lower price.....maybe that's the cheap side of me talking haha.

But as I said before, I respect your pricing upon hearing the reasoning for it. I know people just price their tees expensively just for the money, but don't have the quality to back it up.

Again I appreciate the comments, but to be honest I do want to keep the "Visionary" part to the line's name. I'll think of something.

Jun 21, 2012 @ 17:25
no beef but i don't really understand v's that aren't coming from black scale.
i think the v's look more like black scale than anything else.
to me it feels like a lot of the brands are just banking off black scale's style.
and if you think about mega's brand, he put in a lot of detail into defining what his brand stands for.
partly, black scale believes how you feel when you wear their product is important.
with the rebel flag, the sharp b/w contrasts, conscious celeb endorsements, etc
at the end of the day, you straight up feel like a thug with any black scale tee on..
(except for that skull&rose one, jesus that one bothered me with that fruity ed hardy affliction swag)

since right now, black scale so obviously owns the 'v', I'd stay away from it, because it might engulf your opportunity to define your brand in an original way.

who knows maybe the world can use another brand called 'visionary' lol.

Are you saying Visionary shouldn't use the letter "V" to spell his brand name??? If so, the letter is a block font rather than a Roman serif.

On that note, Rogue Status was the first to do this (ROGVE STATVS) and Triumvir (TRIVMVIR). These brands were already popular in Cali 2-5 years before Black Scale started. I believe Mega might have been the first to run with A as a "V" opposed to those other brands that ran with the traditional U as a "V" because of Roman influence. You can even see all these brands that have Roman reference in their imagery using the latin "V" as opposed to U.

Partially agree with you, Mega has done a great job with his brand that it would be tough now for other brands to use the same imagery without it being mistaken for Black Scale. I wouldn't say to stay away from it because if you are using Roman-inspired imagery, it would make sense that your letters are latin. But I would say not to make your A as a "V", but instead the traditional U as a "V". A lot of people do the A and don't know the the fuck it means.

I never fully introduced my brand on this forum...well I'm an 18 year old student and have dreams like everyone else here to live off my passion. I started this project in high school and it's been 2+ years running. My brand is titled effulgence, a noun meaning a state of brillance. I've released my newest collection so compliment, dislike, support, ignore, troll or whatever your hearts may desire. I'm basically a one man band man from designing, HTML coding, photography and everything else in between. so i'll answer any questions as best as i can!
