Sample t shirt, 1 of 1 so far.
The pattern is hand made and applied so every t shirt we make will have a unique 1/1 pattern. It's a long waiting process for a single shirt but I think people can appreciate the effort put into one of these.

no name yet, the name will come to us. Like mobbyluii we've had this idea for a while but never took a step in until now.
We just have a shitload of ideas lol - based on world history, dark imagery, cults, art, etc. basically stuff that my partner and I are interested in. (attn: NOT at all like black scale, no illuminati or geometric shape stuff, 'V's in place of As, roman numerals... )
What do you guys think?

ANVEL SUMMER 2012

Mint Tie-Dye:



Stuff is decent. I do like the wine tie dye. But one thing did catch my eye.

That open 2 litre of lemonade right by your laptop (probably with all your designs on it), with a bunch of people chillen. I'd be a little more careful than that. Distracted humans do retarded things.

Its cool but all it looks like is that you just bleach dyed the bottom part of it. I personally wouldn't wear it but I could see it being successful in the high fashion/all black trend that is current right now.

Just looking for somebodies opinion on big cartel stores.
I prefer not to use big cartel because everyone is doing it but I don't know if people who are currently using it find an increase in web sales?
Is it because of how easy it is to select your product, checkout with minimal address and card forms to fill out?
I use an online store built into my website and would appreciate any feedback on it?

www.strdywngs.com

thanks


i don't understand....you don't want to use bigcartel, because everyone uses it?

If they are the #1 webstore with easy setup, payment options, 1000's of templates and customization options, great customer service and inventory set up and tracking, and pretty good traffic reports.........


Bigcartel is great. It integrates well and the stats they provide for your are super helpful. It help keeps inventory, sales, and traffic organized. I would highly recommend it.


we use bigcartel, at first look i feel like you cant really tell that we are. Highlyhonored.com


I tried using big cartel long ago and wasn't really satisfied with it, I'm using shopify now. You guys should really look into it, they offer a 30 day free trial to get accustomed to it. I prefer it over big cartel in my opinion.

Just launched a new brand last week based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Please check everything out and let me know what you think. if you love it or hate it that's fine- as long as you can give me some real honest criticism so I can learn and improve my brand.

Quick note
*I'm not really trying to go for a "cartoony" look but I wanted my first drop to be a bay area mascot theme.

^not really my thing but the design quality looks really good, did you make them yourself?

personally I think that if you're not going for a "cartoony" look it might not be best to start off with cartoony t shirts just because it might capture the wrong target market. Say your next line is not really cartoony but your cartoony stuff sold really well, you have the possibility of losing that entire market that bought your first line because now your shirts are focused on a different market. Perhaps the new market will see your past line and they won't really relate to it either. You know what I mean?

For example, say Black Scale next season changed their stuff to look more like The Hundreds. The original Black Scale fans won't buy it since it now targets the Hundreds' targeted demographic. The Hundreds' original fans may or may not like the "new" Black Scale stuff. Remember I'm just using them as an example and am observing the possible extremes! Not saying that it will happen for sure, making an educated guess.

Just my 0.02 from a business standpoint since you said you weren't going for a cartoony look, but I think targeting the Bay area is a good way to start off.

Seems a bit childish to me, I know (I'm 15 and a male) I wouldn't wear any of the tees that you posted - perhaps that just my personal style, but I don't think there is a huge demographic of people who would be willing wear something thats that juvenile looking (again, thats not an insult in any way - the designs are well made, just not really my thing).

i can dig it. i don't like the name with "rogue" because it makes me think of "rogue status". but i don't see the problem with the design work being 'cartoony' at all, there is a huge demographic for that. I like characters like that, and I think if you brand yourselves correctly it could come out pretty nicely.

Nope, all points definitely valid from both you and princeandprez. And I am a marketing major so those thoughts are all things I have considered. My idea was to grab a lot of the market during the playoffs of the bay area baseball teams right now - a while makings shirts of teams I love. You're definitely right about switching markets so i do need to be careful about that. While I don't necessarily want to be cartoony, I definitely don't mind the style of Johnny Cupcakes (though not as "cupcake" as his brand - a little more edgy. I'm looking to find a niche between his style and your basic streetwear style as well. So maybe there is a middle ground there for me.

Good thing here is I own a professional screen printing company so I can quickly shift gears according to how I feel the designs are being perceived - hopefully I can use that to my advantage.

I like the first few tees and I think it's dope that you got the tags there. I know a lot of brands have moved to tagless tees but I'm all for the woven ones - especially if that's a new brand. I believe in going legit right off the bat. Not feeling the though - reminds me a little too much of a Tommy Bahama shirt.

I agree, unless you add something to the button-up that differentiates itself from something your dad would wear on vacation it becomes a dated piece. Personally, I love it the way it is though,

I'm a marketing major as well cool that's dope how you have that screen printing company man, definitely a huge up. It would be good if you could really set yourself in the niche you're looking for. Hope it pans out, interested to see how your work will grow.
