Simply brilliant.

Cool, but I got 2 shirts from Cafe Press a while back and the graphics were really cheap iron-ons.

Yeah cool idea but I would link the quality may be suspect -- he creator should pony up some dough and make a good quality shirt

This is horrible.

The next thing you know, Hollywood will begin treating Albinos worse than conservatives.

HelloHelloHi: Cool, but I got 2 shirts from Cafe Press a while back and the graphics were really cheap iron-ons.

They used to be, yeah. They've gotten a lot better lately, actually. I'm wearing a CafPress T-shirt right now, and their "direct printing" option is VERY much like a silkscreen.

Ok, that's pretty creative.

Not $20 worth of creative. But "iron it onto a cheap T meself" worth of creative definitely. Actually I'd want to pick out the logo I was rezzing out. That's half the statement.

I'm kinda disappointed he didn't use existing logos. The golf polo would be 10x better if he pixellated a Lacoste alligator or a Nike swoosh. Or a t-shirt with a pixellated 'FARK' (pre-filter).

Do those things look right to you guys? When you zoom in on the big pictures, it looks like the pictures are actually pixellated, not the shirts themselves.

Does that make sense?

Go to this link:
http://www.cafepress.com/ironicsans.51955228
or : here, if it works

Then click on the "view larger" link.

Take a good look at the image. Then click on some of the thumbs on the right. In my mind, it's obvious that the image of the shirt was altered.

I went to the main page of this "Ironic Sans" website. I have no idea who this dude is, but he's farking hysterical.

I ordered some cafepress around christmas, and they're fine if you're getting simple white tshirts, their process isn't too bad, but if you order a navy or a black shirt, it looks like an iron on. I was disappointed. I think a lot depends on the design colors too.

they've obviously 'shopped the images (poorly), they don't follow the contours on the shiats at all, and all the other pictures in the view larger section show no pixelated logo. I'm sure they look like crap in real life.

Clueless, both of you.

Cafepress doesn't manufacture one of every new product, put it on a model (or mannequin), and take a picture of it for the catalog. Instead, they have pictures of every one of their blank shirts (or thongs, or boxers, or coffee cups, or whatever), and then they drop the print image on top of it using computer magic.

Poke around in the other catalogs, and you'll see what I'm talking about.

I thought of this a while ago. Props to this guy for making it happen!
