As far as logo shirts and the amount and such; you have got to get your name/brand out there for the most people to see. If you don't, people won't want to buy it. Then once you get to a point where you could easily sell 400 pieces of the same shirt, you only make 250 pieces and raise the prices to compensate for the smaller run.

Now you have 400+ people waiting to cop and only 250 units available.
Start with that and turn it into something bigger and bigger...

and to respond to chad ..who earlier said that OF may have helped Supreme.....it was the other way around! He knew what he was doing by putting that hat on.

I don't think I ever really said that Supreme couldn't make it without OF or that OF helped Supreme because I know that they are a legendary brand and don't need shit. I am saying though that OF did allow a lot of dickriders to flock to Supreme, thus everything sells out faster, resale prices are soaring and people are copping whether they want it or not because they know they can make a quick buck off of it.

And to add to this conversation, as I said to La Mash before, whether I could sell it or not, I am choosing to keep my run limited right now and I don't have to worry about money nearly as much as others. I do understand supply and demand though so I am steadily working to be able to make larger runs of hundreds of shirts of multiple designs.

as for the discussion about logo tees and limited runs....i dont see the harm in starting with a small run of logo tees, you'll probably be able to get them out to your friends at the very least and start exposing it...and dont try to kid yourself and say you are printing 25-50 shirts because it's a "limited run"....it's because you know you can't sell more than that, if even that, and it's all you can afford. we're all in the same boat! start small and grow!


LOL

The unspoken truth right there.

If I could print 200 of one shirt and know it would sell I would.

clean stuff by the way

Here is my logo crew I should have printed from the get go but 2 years later just now thought of.

NICE LOGO. But the font itself doesn't say "preppy". I see you have a TM next to it. Did you really trademark it? If not I would probably use a less urban font since your logo alreayd ha a urban feel to it. You would want to create the prep side with the font IMO.

By the way where did you get the cardigans?
I have had the hardest time finding a good cardigan and I don't want to use Jerzees cardigans when I do my stitch stuff.

Just a initial design I drew. I need to change some things but I personally like the way it turned out. 1) Any thoughts appreciated. 2) Which color scheme is the best?

Yea, I know what you are saying. The UN and ordinary aren't very uniform. I still am testing though so I'm not sure if I want the design to be more or less uniform. but thanks for quick feedback. I'm just trying to target trendy young adults. I get some inspiration for my tees from Mishka because they are a company that has a unique style different than most streetwear brands. For example they have an eyeball as their logo.

Thankyou for the feedback! Ill definitely get to blogging more in the next few weeks. When the next t-shirt drops.

It was four colors and i used traditional screenprinting.

the unordinary design is pretty cool actually it's handdrawn doesn't need to be totaly uniform...a little bit dr.suess-ish though haha

For a unordinary brand you wouldn't want a orginary font. Hand drawn is fine in my opinion

I like this colorway the best. As for the hand drawn aspect, I think it looks really cool. The only thing I would consider changing is the "ordinary" and make the letters somewhat the same height.

Looks so rushed and uninspired to me. Looks like you used a walcom and drew that up in Photoshop in 5 minutes.
I guess the concept is okay, but it definitely needs a lot of reworking. I can't see this being a finalized design.

UN ordinary font looks pretty cool.

would look good as a logo somewhere..or incorporated somehow into a design..but i dont think its strong enough to stand alone on a tee.

Unordinary is a cool brand name in my opinion, BUT if I were you, there's a million other ways to say unordinary, or you could simply create a brand name that is.... not ordinary.

I agree with Vega. Check out stussy's font, it's a good example of a REALLY unique font (I've never seen another like it used in the streetwear industry).

NICE LOGO. But the font itself doesn't say "preppy". I see you have a TM next to it. Did you really trademark it? If not I would probably use a less urban font since your logo alreayd ha a urban feel to it. You would want to create the prep side with the font IMO.

I have had the hardest time finding a good cardigan and I don't want to use Jerzees cardigans when I do my stitch stuff.[/q
The paperwork for the trademark is filed but it take the patent office like a year to process the font has to change i through it together for my lawyer. I need to either custom design one or find one the fits. Im gearing the line to be in a class with polo, lacoste, and burberry. The cardigans come from japan but i have a distributor for the company in miami so i got through him I have several styles and colors.

If you didn't trademark, and you put TM on anything. That is illegal, just an FYI.

Buttons are sick. I'll be lookin' out for DL in the future.

Did you design your logo / design in-house, or did you outsource?

Just wondering.
