Obviously bigger the better but i mean I'm getting by with my little sewing machine. Shit, you could even probably do it by hand, i don't see why not. Yeah it'll take forever and look shitty but I mean that's better than sitting around doing nothing.
do you need like some industrial strength sewing machine. or will some cheap ones due.
Id like to do a cut and sew brand that's very limited, does custom orders and does everything by hand including (hand sulfur dying, sewing, cutting and everything). custom packaging and all. Prices would be high but not too high. maybe 250$ for a jacket 120$ for a button down. Anyone have tips on learning techniques needed to accomplish this? and i know it takes an extreme amount of skill and timeHonestly cutnsew isn't that hard to learn, it's hard to perfect but not to learn. If you wanna learn to make button downs or pants or a jacket or something just buy a few patterns, get some cheap fabric and make them. Over time you won't even need that pattern and you can get better quality materials. I'm actually in that process myself. I'm really into shorts so I'm trying to perfect making shorts and hoping to release some soon.
If you want carpal tunnel lol.
I attempted to sew in my chenille patches by hand and after the 3rd one I said never again.
You have to be virtually perfect with line work for it to look proper. Something as big as a shirt and with the double stitches needed....
Just cop a Singer from Wal-Mart and start practicing.
(you'll probably have to copy the image location and paste in a open tab to zoom in on the stitch work)
If you fixed the line work of this design it will look 80% better but thats just my 2 cents.
One of my Spring line designs.
Broken Bank, I gotta say I've seen your designs all the way from when you first started and I'm just not a fan. I think the designs are weak and amateurish. I think the font looks rough especially since the two Ls look like a U, the color scheme doesn't really seem to fit with anything, and the mascot or whatever that is looks pretty cheesy. I'd say go back to the drawing board and spend some more time on it.
Changing this up a little bit. Rather than having a full history of what the name stands for and logo, decided to shrink it down to the slogan "Go for Broke"
I think it sums it up better.
As for the colors, a lot of times I incorperate the colors of my logo in the designs so they still have some cohesiveness. Even though you may not see the logo in the pictures you see signs of it.
I know not EVERY design is going to be a hit out the gate but what makes this one "amateurish"?
probably my fault for uploading a jpeg of the image and not png.
I fixed the A and spaced the lettering away from the hammer and added a white base around the image.
I'll post the final version later.
