can someone please explain to me why ramybs shirt looks so much better than the other posted shirt looks? did ramyb get a special print not available to other users? or did ramyb do some digital touch-ups to fix the glaring color problem?
I hadn't seen that photo, but it looks like it was just taken with a high intensity flash. The navy color of the shirt itself is much brighter than any I've seen as well, and the tag looks like it's glowing. I'm glad you think it printed well though, and if anyone got a version that does not look like the photo I posted, I'm pretty sure they can just send an email to woot and ask for a new one and send in a photo- I got 3 of the shirt and all of them looked just like the one I posted.

I would have loved to delete this one as well, but the point I was making was simply that there was no advantage in removing the other thread when I knew this one was still here and I couldn't do anything about it.
While I know it's difficult for you to do, try reading what I said next time before responding. I said openly that I fixed the book myself, so that's not woot's redesign. But changing colors IS something that woot reserves the right to do, and has been known to do in the past on many designs. They either don't have all pantones available, or the production team decides to change things. Either way, that's out of my hands. I get the point. You like to piss all over my thread and make a scene and call me a liar, but you need to learn that sometimes you really don't have a point and your arguing is entirely meaningless. You're acting like you "caught me in the act" or something, when I'm the one who posted photos of the shirt myself. I have nothing to hide, I've said numerous times that I'm pleased with the way that it printed, and if anyone doesn't like it, they don't have to buy it. The photo is here for all to see, and it looks just like what woot posted, which people could view before purchasing in the first place.

All the detail of the darker color at the edge of the lower half of the woman is gone in the print file, as it is in the closeup you posted. I can see the difference in the images posted here. The appearance is that you changed it when you got ready to send in your print file, and posted that changed file for your closeup. If you want to say that was an inadvertent mistake, that you didn't realize that the change in those halftones was as visible as it is to many people who see it, fine. But don't try to say that it looks the same as the submission image, because we can see that it doesn't.
I was so busy arguing about the size of the halftones (which really didn't change, I promise you), but I took another look at what you mentioned and figured out the issue, which was a mistake on my part. The way that I do my entries is that I work on many layers, and then when it's time to submit my print ready (if the shirt is in contention), I merge and rearrange the layers so that they are reduced to six (one for each color)- If I use the shirt color for anything, I generally draw it on, then delete it out of my layers. In this case, I had used black over the darkest green color and under the light green, but when I went to create the print ready file, I didn't delete the black out of that area without realizing it. That's why some of the details in that area were lost, and I apologize for that.
