But on the real though if you guys over at @infoconceivingdesigns ever need some real design help on side projects or anything like that let me know. The extra money wouldn't hurt and I'm sure you customers would enjoy the assistance of a great graphic designer.
Here is some small jobs I have done in the past. If you want to check me out. I can do color separation as well.  http://bigbankdesigns.wordpress.com/
My rates depend on the difficulty of the work being done. But I'll work with you guys and hook you up with some good rates so you can still make some money.

Just inbox me

Your graphics aren't original you're literally taking photos from the internet, twisting them and claiming them as your "designs".   You know it too.  Our website was created just to serve as a basic visual for customers.  Our work does speak for itself and our clientele does spread the word about our business but why stop there??   They are called stock photos for a reason.  Does it say anywhere there that those photos "show our design skills"... No they don't now you're creating your own statements.  How in the world does printing an invoice on white paper and black ink consider it "fake"? That's great you know of that shop, he is printing on the cheapest quality material to provide those prices, along with his automatic press so he hardly does any work and you still don't know our prices but you are trying to make a comparison.  You're running your mouth based on your assumptions.   After saying all that you think we'll want to work with you?!  LOL at that!  PEACE.


I would have logged off a couple of hours ago but oh well here goes.
I was so bored at work, I actually took the time to read the notes and info on your site, as well as the photos you posted. That actually took all of 5 minutes, known of which I will be able get back. So everything that I am stating is facts based on the information YOU provided. So I am not assuming anything. If you took the time the print out a piece of paper with numbers and words on it and then post a pictures of it, then it must have meant something. And then you took the time out of your day the look for the photo in whatever folder you stored it in, edit it and rehost it. Please dear sir tell me why so much effort was used in order to cover up what YOU originally made and that I brought to your attention?
And by the way if you have some free time you should read the comments that were posted with the graphics I used on my website, that I made. I, unlike yourself made very clear which designs were original and which ones were inspired work. Out of the 13, 4 are inspired work and I made that very clear in the description so that customers will know exactly what they are looking at rather then coming to their own conclusion. Something you should have thought of in the process of making your site.
That's the very first rule of thumb when providing customer service. 9 years of expertise should have taught you that.
As a graphic designer, I know very well what "stock photos" are. I also know that website much like Shutterstock host royalty free images that can be used, WITH the purchase of a subscription to their website. These images are made to be purchased for use by any multiple of customers with the intent of use for non-commercial or commercial placement. Before I assume anything did you guys in fact pay for a subscription to any Image hosting website in order for the rights to use that photo or just find it on the web, preview image, save-is, open, crop and rehost?

Now onto the other part of your comment regarding the shop I used. Oh but WAIT, you didn't respond to the other website I posted that apparently from what they posted on their website DON'T charge set up fee's unlike you guys and ALL of the westcoast (which I can only assume you are referring to when you say up and down the coast. Did these phone call also include Washington and Oregon? They are part of the westcoast all though northwest if I were trying to be specific. Now I'm just rambling...)
You and I both know that there are certain level shirts provided to wholesalers. Gildan being bottom of the barrel which MOST shop will provide in their "cheap" quotes. You and I both know that there are a number of different options provided to customers who obtain quotes from silk screening shops so with that being said his prices are still cheaper then yours. You should look through his prices. I mean you really should, it might help you in the future if and when you gain some more customers who ask why your prices are so high. If you noticed he had a section for prices if you were to provide your own garments. One color screen hit is $2.00. Now let's pretend I don't have my wholesale/resale license. That would mean I would have to purchase my shirts from a T-shirt mart or something along those lines, which because of the great place that we live in are located all through the state of California. That would mean I would be purchasing my shirts for $3 maybe $3.50. The additional ink hit from his price guide is $1.50. That makes the total cost of the shirt $6.50. Let pretend I had 24 made that's $156. Now let's add on his Set-Up Fee. $10 and 2 film positives @ $5 that's a total of $20. Why only 1 screen fee, because you and I both know that you can clearly fit a 4x4 print on the same screen as a 12x12 design print no problem. But if you want to nickle and dime your customers you'll go ahead and charge them for 2 screens, just because YOU CAN. But back to his charges.
That would make the total $176 making it cost $7.34 per shirt to be made.
Why did I take the time our of my boring day to do all this:
1. To show other people in this thread how to cost effectively get your shirt printed by your local screen printing shop without being nickle and dimmed.
2. Because the piece of paper you posted on your website that you are now hiding is very misleading and even if it was inaccurate your prices are still high as fuck, whether it was 24 or 42 shirts.
3. Because you have awaken the sleeping troll and this is deeply entertaining to me.

I'm not running my mouth off assumption. Like stated before, YOU posted that picture not me. And whatever made up numbers you decided to waste your time and type on the paper for whatever reason, potential customer saw it and were immediately turned off by the high cost your are spooning off to your customers. Which is probably the reason why you deleted the numbers as to not allude any other customers in to thinking you are giving them the "most

affordable prices within our industry" when you are not.

And "Yes", after saying all that I did assume maybe you would like to work with me. At  least I'm being honest. You should try working with honest people. It'll help your business. I gained all this information from honest people I have worked with. Screen Printers who were willing to share with me tips and secrets because they saw the potential and my drive for greatness. Not just a kid trying to make a quick buck off someone else. So in turn that didn't feel right doing me like they did other other customers who didn't do they research.

And for the record Broken Bank doesn't mean poverty or being broke or without resources, it means going for Broke. Putting your all in what you do and reaping the outcome. Endless amount of wealth whether it be knowledge or financially, so much so that it "breaks the bank and can't be contained or held in"

Brand influenced by streetwear, underground music/scene , and juggin. 
To be released by the end of this month.
I know it's part of your brand's personality, but your website is almost unbearable to look at. I'd say make it a bit cleaner and change the neon blue 'contact' section to a more neutral color.  

Shirt is okay - nothing I'd wear personally, but I've seen worse.

THE STORY

The goal of MCs and Breakbeats is to spread the love for not just hip-hop, but music in general. Everybody has a different vision for what "great music" is. Each person has a certain sound that appeals to them the most, a certain song that never gets old, and/or an album that is always on repeat no matter what situation. MCs and Breakbeats was founded to promote music culture, and to celebrate everybody's vision of great music.

WHAT THE NAME MEANS:

The name MCs and Breakbeats comes from the performer, an MC (or emcee). A Breakbeat is a sample of a drumbeat (often used in Hip-Hop) that is used in syncopated rhythm. Too often to the casual music listener, the producer is overlooked. However, the specific style of each producer makes or breaks the track. MCs and Breakbeats does not just celebrate the emcee, but the producer as well.

Your brand is called MC and Breakbeats, but has nothing to do with MC's, Breakbeats, or music in general. What do mountains have to do with any of what you described your brand as? Why even have a brand story if your brand literally has nothing to do with it? Mountains do not have anything to do with music, you just think of Mount Everest or Big Bear or whatever mountain is popular in your local area. It's way too early for you to be dropping logo tees and getting people out of the blue to cop them. Just some food for thought.

Also, everybody knows what MC's are, and an MC, by definition, is the person who INTRODUCES the act, the entertainer, and so on. So they would technically be lesser than a rapper. And if you argue that this is the hip-hop/rap version of the MC, then that means the emcee raps, then you're arguing the rappers and MC's are synonymous, which just makes your definition and story looks bad and hypocritical. They are the same thing, in layman terms.

Just some C&C.

Co-founded by NATIVE Angelinos. C.T.S debuted to the public in 2013. Inspired by skateboarding, punk and hip-hop culture. The line is comprised of graphic T-shirts,denim, outerwear, head wear and accessories. The development of circle triangle square brand clothing began late in 2012.The brand went through many phases before deciding on the brand name and what it represents. The owners wanted the clothing line to represent their life and style. It's about expressing individuality and personality in a bold, trendy, totally unique way. circle triangle square is a company established around the principle of manufacturing goods that are classic, even timeless in their sensibility. Carefully selected materials are an important part in every piece & aims to design within a wide price range.

Yes I pay a college tuition to major in Studio Art with an emphasis in Serigraph and a double minor in Graphic Design and Business. don't know whats laughable about finishing my education and getting a degree.
and yeah thats why i've paid off all my startup costs by selling shirts for 13 bucks. I guess I'm "new and inexperienced" with all the money i'm saving and saving people money. Like i said before, it's an art, i won't argue with you, clearly you don't give a shit about the art form and would rather take advantage than teach. 
I don't know why I waste my time of these messages boards because there are always kids like you who sit behind a computer and don't know who they're talking to nor what they are talking about.  You can contact me to meet in person, come by to the warehouse and I guarantee you'll regret making the assumptions that you are stating.  This is not a back and forth game here.  Simply, Im extending services to those who are interested.  If not, don't worry about us.  There's no taking advantage and there's lots of shits given.  Don't create a judgement off one man's opinion based on secondary information.  Contact our customers and they will preach about our services.  Grow up, show respect, this is business.  If you don't know, don't speak and find out truth for yourself.   I've taken a look at your "brand".  You would really appreciate a consultation from someone like me but keep going everybody has to start somewhere.  Time separates the real ones from the impostors.
lmao you guys are both lame. and @infoconceivingdesigns your stuff is bad quality, ill remain anonymous but i definitel wasnt pleased.

Circle Triangle Square is such a strange brand name, and the clothing is whack to. If you like it, then go ahead and make it. I don't think a lot of people would but it though. You basically have all the things wrong with a new brand, strange name, bad designs, and a backstory that seems like a religion. The site isn't half bad though. I think you have a lot to work on, but that's just my opinion.

It's a shame how unprofessional some people are in this forum.

Makes for a good show though. 

Nobody wants to accept that their designs are trash because they have spent time and money making something that they think is cool. They are willing to throw all sorts of hate to make you think different or to make them seem cool again. Clearly not getting results, just making you look foolish. 

If someone says your stuff sucks don't challenge them, challenge yourself to make something better. 

You can't please everyone, but you can make something that is not playing off of overdone trends.
