Kumana Wanalaia: Eligarf had a good comment in the photoshop thread:

Eligarf: Cyclometh: What's up, kids?

Here's the J'O'e:

[s7.postimage.org image 750x1000]

Umm, I may be wrong here, but I am pretty sure this is what Illustrator is for. You simply can't get photos to look good at 6 colors, and that is all there is to that. I like ElvisBloch's idea, but all that grain is going to end up as undefined blotches and blobs on the shirt. LarryWerner was right about it looking 10x worse when it gets printed on fabric. If you are going with a 6 color palette, you can't use photos...that is just how it works.

The other option is to just do photo t-shirts. You can get them made up for less than $5 each if you are ordering more than 15 or 20, and then you don't have to worry about palettes at all. Full color photos work fine, and Photoshop is the tool to use.

So the purpose of this whole thread really makes no sense to me. I am assuming that you are the subby because you are the one with the limitations and info. Can you enlighten me at all as to what you are thinking?

If it's possible to vectorize our image, that would make it come out cleaner.

Also, as I said in my reply in the other thread, "the printer suggests using Illustrator formats, .ai and .eps for vectored images. If you can do this, by all means, please do. And if you can hook us up with USA made, USA printed Ts for less than what CustomInk can, we would greatly appreciate your input."

This is the second time I've heard someone suggest alternatives to what I suggested. I have never done this before, and now that the weekend is over, I'm out.

RichieLaw, the suggestion of Eligraf, and someone else who suggested CafePress, might be better than my suggestion. If they really can get us photo Ts for $5 per shirt, wow, that's great.

Please guys, if you have suggestions, make them. I've never done this before. It would be much better for us to make better shirts than turn out something crappy ... this IS for charity...

The sub ...


You've done a fantastic job. The whole underlying theme with the perks is Occam's Razor. If we can do photo shirts with the caption on the back...awesome. I am not sure $5 a shirt is doable unless someone has a hook up. You can tell them to contact me at joebidenstransam at the google.com.

To be honest, I have way too much stuff going on right now to monitor the photoshop and caption threads, so I will trust your judgment. Let's try to get the best quality product we can at the cheapest price. Photo t-shirts are fine with me if they reduce the cost that much. The novelty with these shirts is that they were tailor made specifically for this using the full knowledge of fark. How many times can you say you are wearing a t-shirt made by the internet?

Twitter Schedule for Monday October 15th 2012

We are continuing the twitter bomb today at focused times plus adding our local news papers/stations throughout the day. Please retweet wherever you can, especially if you do not want to set up hootsuite or spend the day tweeting.

All times are EST. I want to change from CST in order to catch the late night guys before their shows record today on the off chance that maybe we'll get mentioned! I also started a bit earlier so we will also end a bit earlier. This is my first time organizing anything like this so please bear with me.

Dan Savage @fakedansavage
2-3
Village Voice @villagevoice
3-4
The Stranger @strangerslog
4-5



Please continue to tweet at your local news papers, tv news, and radio stations throughout the day! A few local newsy things off the top of my head are @mountainxpress (Asheville NC), @cl_atlanta (Creative Loafing), @cl_charlotte, @cl_tampa, and @joshmichael104 (Morning show DJ in Asheville).

As always retweet, retweet, retweet!

I need to go to sleep but if someone can make sure this gets visibility as the thread goes, I appreciate it. I will try to post a list of messages that can be used in the morning so people don't have to think too hard before coffee time.
 
2012-10-15 12:06:42 AM  
I'll post an update on the Camp Pendleton Patch tomorrow as well. The initial post got bumped up to "Featured" status by the local editor, so hopefully the update will as well. (Plus, stuff from Patch gets shared out with other regions, and if it really gets lots of views can even hit HuffPo or AOL News)
 
2012-10-15 12:14:25 AM  
Reminder, if you use TweetDeck but not HootSuite, you can schedule your tweets in there as well.
 
2012-10-15 12:20:56 AM  
Got all my tweets scheduled for tomorrow, let's make it a bigger day than today!

Don't know why didn't I think of it myself:

Carry On My Wayward Son: Kansas

Thanks, Beenjammin!


Heh, no problem! That song is near and dear to my heart, I actually have a CSB about it from my time in Afghanistan.

The first time I was there, before I got messed up, I was in the cadillac shiatter on base admiring the handy-work on the wall of my stall while I was listening to my iPod. That was the song I was listening to at that moment, so I added the first line of the song to all the rest of the graffiti and then left. After about a week later I found myself in the same stall, and lo and behold, the entire song had been written out by what had to be eight different handwritings, each had added a line from the song until it was finished. I just chuckled my way all the way back to my hut.

Good times, good times.

Here are some conveniently pre-packaged tweets for all your copypasta needs! Remember, some may need to be altered for the 140 character limit, but these fit with the majority of the handles I tried. I am scheduling the twitter bomb tweets every 10 minutes and at the top of each hour I am tweeting all the local media as well. Let's get the word out! Remember, today starts at 10 am EST.

The world needs a ride for when they need a hero. 1981 Trans Am is that ride. Joe Biden is that hero. http://givejoethebird.com

Some are born gr8 some achieve gr8ness and some have a 81 TransAm thrust upon them http://givejoethebird.com #givejoethebird

Good and great are seldom in the same man.Unless they are washing a 81 Trans Am on the White House lawn givejoethebird.com

We're going to make Joe Biden an offer he can't refuse http://givejoethebird.com #givejoethebird

Hey I just met you & this is crazy, make a meme real life & donate maybe! http://givejoethebird.com #givejoethebird

Kumana Wanalaia:
Please guys, if you have suggestions, make them. I've never done this before. It would be much better for us to make better shirts than turn out something crappy ... this IS for charity...


The difference between the photo shirt and a nice screen printed shirt (needing vector art) is that the photo shirt is going to physically suck. Like, it won't be a shirt you'll want to wear out, and it'll get eaten in the wash quickly. The resolution is also assy.

Consider taking something like

i1222.photobucket.com or static1.shopify.com instead.

drop me an email at "chris kultzow (gmail)" so that I have your email address and maybe I can help with vectorizing something - there's two months to go, we're not exactly in a rush. I think there's a really nice 2-tone on a background color shirt design to be had somewhere around here, I'd hate to commit to crap just because we're in a hurry.

Maybe you even have this $25 "lousy shirt" and a $50 "luxurious shirt", eh?

Yeah. We've seen a pretty good increase in donations this morning from yesterday. I'm not sure if it is because of our concentrated media bombardment or if it is just Monday and people are on the internets.
