Pretty much posting these to show y'all what not to do lol. Got the photos back from our recent shoot. Lighting was bad and background was off. So we are doing it all over again.
But it was a good experience playing around and learning some stuff.
I'm also in the process of "recreating" the brand and establishing the name more. Something I should have done in the beginning but got side tracked with trying to fund the brand. But oh well. I have already broke even with all the money spent and have extra to spare. The Summer/Fall line from my perspective goes way harder then my recent mediocre stuff. Just happy I had this reality check sooner then later.

Not digging the flames deal, too ed hardy / biker gang shit in my opinion. Also, the whole brass knuckles theme has already been done by 10 deep in my opinion. Good luck trying to lay stake after they have seen such huge success.

On a lighter note, keep at it dude. You will only get better.

thanks...

that's sorta the market i sell to most... Tapout/Affliction fans. i like to get opinions from the streetwear realm though because those are the styles that inspire me. i know my designs don't really fit the HB mold but this is where i get the best criticism. i'm not worried about stepping on 10 Deep's toes, if you will, because i attract a fan base that is most likely not familiar with 10 Deep.

Hey guys! If anyone is interested in starting their own company and would like to look into buying out an already launched company, we are looking to sell our company and everything with it (brand name, inventory, website, emails, and all of the other pieces of hard work we put into this company over the last couple of years) at a very discounted price. The success has been great with the brand, but we are on to new ventures and not able to keep up with the time constraints of running our line. This would be a great opportunity for someone looking to start their company with a solid foundation and little money. Let me know if you have any interest at Contact@Projectxxiv.com and we can discuss further from there.



haha you've got to be kidding me lmfao

Ive always been interested in making my own clothing brand. Ive seen some pretty awesome stuff you guys have made. My question is, can someone lead me through the steps of making your own brand? Like how you make the brand/logo. Where you get the clothes to put the logo on. Then the steps of selling the clothing. PLEASE and thank you[/quote

Read a book called "How to Launch a Kickass T Shirt Brand", since you don't have any fundamental knowledge. (Not being a dick). Asking people in here won't really get you any answers. You have to work for it, at least one person post something like this every day on this thread.

Was wondering if paying a company would be better compared to printing on my own for screen print.i understand that it will be cheaper if i do it but i feel that it might be better quality.
Jul 26, 2012 @ 08:28
@tubb3 double edged sword .... 1 you will learn how to do it yourself...but 1st do you have all the equipment needed? also if you pay somebody they are responsible if something goes wrong.
Jul 26, 2012 @ 08:38
@tubb3 yeah if you have the equipment go for it. You have total control over what you print and the amount and custom orders. If you have the time it would be one of the best things you can do.
It will be cheaper in the beginning to use a outside source because the money won't come out of pocket in such a large some say for example if you purchased your own equipment. But in the long run if you have about $2k to drop with no worries get your own equipment.

If your in the game to make pocket tees and get other people to completely design your logo, then your not going to be round for long.

Why make a facebook page for your biz, ask for people to support and like it when you dont have a logo, and wont have product for months.

what is the rush? why not develop your brand, logo, product before promoting it.

I would have to agree ....there is no rush..seems like alot of new brands try to rush and get things going before even having a solid identity as a brand and a good foundation as business..take you time develop it more i would say dont get on a forum asking for help with YOUR brand logo or name...

Pretty much posting these to show y'all what not to do lol. Got the photos back from our recent shoot. Lighting was bad and background was off. So we are doing it all over again.
But it was a good experience playing around and learning some stuff.
I'm also in the process of "recreating" the brand and establishing the name more. Something I should have done in the beginning but got side tracked with trying to fund the brand. But oh well. I have already broke even with all the money spent and have extra to spare. The Summer/Fall line from my perspective goes way harder then my recent mediocre stuff. Just happy I had this reality check sooner then later.


yo bro....check out cowboy studios, get that paper background. much better than the cloth.

they also have a few full photo lighting kits for kinda cheap.

Thanks for the link. That is cheap. Forgot all about paper. We ended buying shower curtains because I knew sheets would be to thin.

After seeing Highly Honored photos I'm really feeling the black backgrounds.
