Starting a New Line/Brand Feedback Thread

Hard Knoxx

I began this project back in 2008 when I was a freshman. It all began with some sketches that were going to be on some hats. Over time, I wanted to expand than just making hats and decided that I would start a small brand. 4 years later, I began production of the Hard Knoxx clothing company and slowly, my small dream is becoming a reality. During the last 4 years, I have expanded my knowledge on street wear cultures and used that into constructing this brand. I have the support from my city and im looking to expand the brand to a national scale and eventually, work my way to being one of the most respected companies in the industry.

@doubledukes I think I understand your question. I'm not a screen printer. We've done multicolor prints before (a fountain print, probably not what you're talking about). Any legit screen printer can do sublimation, six color prints or a fountain print for you. I can give a name but you're better off using someone local.

For what you're trying to do, some guy doing it in his garage might not be your best bet. You're going to want someone who's done color separation and/or sublimation before. I'd suggest asking your local skate shop/ indie wear/ street wear shop if they can recommend someone. Depending on your area, the mainstream print shops might be fine too (but very expensive).

I got a xsi, pretty old but from what I seen on Flickr it does magic. Only thing is it doesn't do videos but I have best friends with video cameras so I'll manage. Long time no speak though, hmu on Kik sometime.

@vega_box Amen, that's the recipe.


Dope camera man. That will get you some solid lookbook pictures. What are you using to edit? Check out lightroom its by far the best and most efficient way to do it.

Word, ill send you that info in a bit homie i havent forgot just been busy!


Yeah lightroom does do magic, Just started using it yesterday.

Thanks!

Yah I agree the arch needs some work and the second I saw it it made my mind go from thinking that these are pretty fly to they could be done better. It also looks like that Safari is tilted a little bit which threw me off as well. Definatley some good concepts just need a little bit better execution IMO.

@casein_point you need to figure out how to type text around circle, there are some tutorials on youtube.

hey guys, about to launch a collaborative art project, basically a platform so i can get my unmotivated friend's incredible art out somehow (shirts, sweaters, etc).
i'm starting with my own caps, this is the first design.
this isn't much like other stuff on here, the 959 family are trippers.


have had these for months and have been putting off launching this thing,
please help me out here and give me some constructive criticism.

This ain't my line G its @recruitsclothing
Nov 29, 2012 @ 18:39
I think recruits clothing intended to do that. Because on his first shirt it was done perfect. Then this one is like he used arch on photoshop.

I have a question, How do you guys get your labels tags sewn onto your shirts? do they sew them on when you order them, or do you have a 2nd party company sew them on................just curious

Also where do you get your labels from, I have a few places, But I was just curious to know others,

Thanks guys

@flyathanaverage: Usually most people tend to get tags done at a different place and hand them to the screenprinter who most likely offers the service of sewing them in.
I do it on my own tho, it's easy and saves you the extra money you would spend on someone else doing it. All you need is a basic household sewing machine and a seamripper. Works like a charm especially if you are still moving in low order territory.

@craftysince90 shape looks kinda off at the picture, maybe try to get a better shot. Otherwise clean hat can't go really wrong with basic color schemes and classic material. No shots tho you are running one of my favorite brands in this thread.
While I'm at it are those leatherpatches embossed or laser engraved? I'm currently contemplating on which of these techniques to use myself.

Edit: Sorry for the double post.

These look really cool. This is coming from someone who enjoys to 'trip' every once and a while. Not sure how these would do on the open market, they may do well, they may not depending on how people respond to the 'crazy all-over' look.

In terms of launching, get your stuff together homie! Don't expect to pop stuff online and immediately sell it. People want there to be a brand behind what they buy. Building a brand takes alot of time and effort. Start now.

nope, it was edward barbanell.





Thanks man. appreciate it.
and yeah i still got a lot left that need to be sewed on. this "so called professional" fucked some up. So hopefully i find someone who does a better job asap.


Have you considered just getting a standard Singer machine and learning yourself? It's fairly easy and can save you a lot of time and money. Just a suggestion.


took your advice and did them myself. I have experience but never thought i would be able to. thanks!
here's a shot of them now.
