Was it the pics or the products or both that you guys aren't feeling?


to be honest, when i first saw the pics, the word "swag" flew through my mind. the poses, the outfit, snapbacks, just don't look good.
i love it when a product really gives me that "wow", but you've came out with this design multiple times, and it gets old seeing it again.

just my 2 cents

Could somebody provide me with a good varsity jacket template please. email it to info.frontrvnners@gmail.com

@ryder thanks man! Appreciate the feedback. We got them done over here in the UK. Were sewing them onto our garments, tested it a few times with some samples and they stitch on ok. We use hemming web first to stick it on so it doesn't move all over the place when sewing.

We've talked before you're cool dude and helped me out with the templates so thank you, for me the pics you posted earlier just seem like they belong on Tumblr with a whole bunch of swag type shit ya know. No hate just saying. I def like what your F/W line up is looking like. It's more clean cut and less typical then your previous "heart" stuff. Seems like it would be better to build your brand as "URBN." with the most recent designs then the hearts b/c people won't know that those are from your brand.

Damn....the LAST thing I was shooting for was the 'swag' factor! I do see your point guys, and I can see how you thought that.
I can honestly say that I'm in a tough place because that Heartbeat logo is, and has been, my
Biggest selling product since I started in 2010. Ironically enough, it did blow up on tumblr last year with the girl in the first pic getting it like 13k notes collectively from about 4 different pics. (let me add that those crews in the pic are last years releases...I haven't released any new ones yet). It's hard for me to completely move away from that design since customers new and old ask when I'm releasing more of it.
My intention is to brig the URBN. look to light and that's going well for my first release, but that Heartbeat is heavy on people's mind.
I'm going to just mix the two of them together for designs, but do more of the URBN. releases. I'm definitely not trying to change up on what my customers love right away, but rather do it slowly but surely.

Hmm, well if the heartbreak logo has been working out for you I would always suggest some sort of woven label for a beanie or even doing that on the bottom corner of your tees. You can still incorporate it with your URBAN designs without completely phasing it out. It all depends on how you want to go about it.

Can be big depending on how you do em, quality, manufactured, etc. They are trending now. Can be a bust if you use some blank that people will recognize right off the bat and if the quality is shit and straps break on the first wore like Obey's crap.

@aldenteco I don't think the two headed eagle goes with script in the 1st one.

Decided to roll with screen-print transfers for our upcoming drop.
Cuts down a lot on production cost, and allows you to make shirts on demand.
All you need is a heat press - great investment. Pics of actual apparel coming soon...

Does anyone have any suggestions for companies that produce good crewnecks blanks ? Is it a case where a company that produces good T-Shirt blanks will follow suite with their crewnecks ? I've tried Fruit of The Loom a couple years back (terrible) followed by Gildans the year after (not the fit I was looking for) and finally Hanes this year (Not too bad but I feel there are better options out there I'm missing).

After my experience I've kind of been put off making crewnecks until I find the best quality blanks available to me.

Does anyone know a good place to get custom decal stickers made? I keep finding place that have premade designs where you add the text you want from their website.

try independent trading co. i haven't tried their crewnecks but their hoodies are great quality and the fit is perfect.
Sep 23, 2012 @ 20:21
@aldenteco on the 2 headed eagle text is way to overpowering ... You tried to make it like a badge? And wrap the text around it ? But it's something with the text I can't get with maybe hold on to it and 1 day you might come up with a new idea... And with the bunny 1 I like it but I would say take out the Chinese and remove the name from the top and put club al dente at the bottom stacked like you have
Sep 23, 2012 @ 20:22
@trevorsanderson which hoodies did you go with I'm thinking if the ss4500 the midweight
Sep 23, 2012 @ 20:31
i went with the afx4000. love them. they're light weight but still super warm and incredibly soft.
Sep 23, 2012 @ 20:54
@laughingung COOL....

MADE SOME CHANGES....

BUT NOT ON THE DOUBLE HEADED EAGLE... GOING WITH MY GUT ON THAT ONE. LOVE THE LOOK.
