[Quote]Troll or not, these designs aren't that bad aesthetically. Obviously parody flips of the bigger brands (Stussy, Black Scale, Diamond, Crooks..) but they look better than most of the stuff these other start-up brands are cookin up lately *pun intended*. I bet if you pushed this without the crazy talk, yo yo yo, niggaz dis niggaz dat, woopty woo, and changed the Godzilla smokin crack concept/theme, I could see people buyin your stuff (from a design perspective that is).

[Quote]I'm from Sac too, so I'm glad to see brands come out of the 916. Not really feelin the rest of the shirts besides the ones I pictured above (and when I say I feel them, I mean as in I can picture them selling but I wouldn't necessarily purchase them). A lot of your designs fall into the whole common hipster-brand aesthetic with the geometric shapes and box logos. Not hating, just my opinion. Do your thing though, keep grindin and keep on progressing.

Idk if it's just me but I feel like a lot of brands nowadays, from noobie brands to even some of the bigger well-known brands, aren't putting enough effort into their pieces. Not just design-wise, but like concept and message-wise. I always cringe when I see brands advertise half-assed designs and logo shirts that look just horrible. Not saying logo shirts are bad, but you just gotta know how to do it right.. Just something I wanted to throw out there.

[Quote]Good idea about keeping the stock label on after printing's done. But anyway, I re-read Threadbird's tag printing policy and I think they actually don't care whether or not the shirt's actually "Made in USA".. but that you at least HAVE "a place origin" of the shirt somewhere on your tag. Lol misreading on my part..

I have a question about the screen printing tag information process. So I was reading through Threadbird and they mention that "it's required by US law that the following information be included in all garments: Size, % of Material, Country of Origin (for the garment, not your brand), Care Instructions. These are non-negotiable. We cannot list "Printed in the US" or "Processed in the US" instead of listing what country the shirt is manufactured in, it *must* have the country information on the garment." So if that's the case, then why do some of the big brands like Diamond and Black Scale have "Made in USA" when they clearly use Alstyle blanks that were made in Mexico. Is it because they have their own printing warehouses that prints their shirts (no middleman) so they're exempt from those screen-printing shop policies? Or is it cause they just don't give a f**k about da police? And I would like to see some examples of some of your guys' printed-on tag information if any. Thanks

Stay away from those sites. Do it yourself through Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. If you want to create your own graphics, you need to learn how to use these programs (YouTube is your best friend).. That's if you don't have $ to hire a designer to do it for you (like me). Good luck

[Quote]I actually do follow this thread consistently and read through all the posts. Cliquegarment's comment above is exactly the type of feedback I'm looking for. I'll search around the other threads to see if there's been any other discussions on this topic. Thanks!

So since the recent topics of discussion has been about pricing of shirts, I need some opinions. A lot of the bigger brands like Crooks, Diamond, Black Scale, Hundreds, etc. price their shirts around $30-34 a tee. I'm sure when they first started off, they weren't always that much (I'm just assuming here). Then I notice other "smaller" brands like Us Versus Them price their shirts at around $24+. I understand the whole "we price high because we want to keep things exclusive/attract the market of consumers who want 'premium' goods/establish ourselves next to the bigger brands/ etc. etc." But realistically speaking, what price range do you feel is good for a newly established brand to start off with? I'm thinking $26-28 range, then increase as your brand grows and becomes more recognized instead of launching at $32 right off the bat. I know it's also a matter of personal opinion and how much you feel it's worth, but scratch that. I just wanna get some opinions lol
