Starting a New Line/Brand Feedback Thread

Mar 21, 2012 @ 03:13
just started my line check it out http://livwealthy.com or http://livwealthy.bigcartel.com let me know what you think....thanks

Honestly I really dislike these brands that try to glorify how rich they. It just seems like you are trying to say you are better than the middle class and poor people. Overall the idea doesn't do anything for society except worsen it and stretch the gap between rich and poor Plus, none of your stuff is that impressive; all you are doing is following the passing trend. Plus, your website was hard to figure out. Plus, you should have something better than a basic bigcartel account if you are charging that much scrilla.


I'm not rich but that's the goal. Make people feel good.Everything is handmade. Most people that have a small line use bigcartel is simple and easy.

I think, as far as art direction goes, it seems a bit outdated. It seems like a good amount of work was put into it, but the products aren't really doing it for me. The price points are a bit high - since you are just starting I would gradually bring the price higher. The logo and typeface could definitely do some reworking, that brings down your brand a lot. Take more time into branding the brand. A knight? You could be more original.

The theme sort of reminds me of Billionaire Boys Club. Expensive products with the rich person theme. The "Made for Rich People" is pretty funny but douchy, hahahaha. But I would take more time in branding it and studying your target market and designing it.

Thats just my 2 cents.

Thanks for the good advise. It's hard when you have to do everything yourself. Working with a $1000 budget.

That was the first thing that popped into my head when I saw your logo...
Ahh Idk man seems like you put a whole lot of effort into the wrong brand idea. Good luck tho.

How do you guys deal with designs on the front and back? Just seems if your paying 20 per screen youre dropping a lot right there

Wow you really want people to know that you hand sew on a single tag on each shirt lol...
Its also an annoying website to navigate, and if you're charging $50 a tee, at least get your own domain name for big cartel. Show me you tried, then maybe you have a slight chance at me paying top dollar for a shirt and not just because you hand sewed the tags on.

Agreed. Glorifying money like that just spells immaturity. You'll realize one day that money doesn't buy you happiness. Partly because you wont get any from this brand. Get a better concept.

Thats enough hate for now.

Merchspin.com, Threadbird.com any others like those?
Mar 21, 2012 @ 05:43
look into independent printers.. they tend to charge a lot cheaper and are a lot easier to deal with. also there is usually no turn around time. pm me and I may give out a resource

Thats what im trying to find.. i live in the Bay Area, and everything is more expensive out here lol. How do you deal with front and back designs? I dont want to pay 160 for screen charges..

this.

i like that you put a lot of work into it, but the name doesn't match your clothing theme.

and try to use better typefaces than the ones built into windows..it comes off a little amateurish. and don't use futura, it's overdone. try from sites like dafont, fontsquirrel, or fontspace

Great idea, people love it. I have been using the same technique for about a year now on one of my products and get a great reception. Are you hand dripping the wax for each order? Make sure you use authentic sealing wax, for the best quality.

I am trying to gauge interest to see if there is a market for blank Japanese Loopwheel Cotton sweatshirts and hoodies for the Fall/Winter 2012? I am currently designing my line and will have a few bolt of excess loopwheel and wanted to see if was worth it to produce blanks for the up and coming lines for better quality.
