Spiritgreen wrote:The technical side of things is actually pretty straightforward. Woot won't have a problem printing a design if:

- The halftones use no more than 30 lines/dots per inch

- Your file resolution is 300dpi

- The halftones only ever involve two interlocking inks


If you try to have finer lines than that, or you have more than two ink colors sharing a halftone then it's not printable.

Lyonscc, I'd be happy to take a look if that's at all helpful. Message me, or post a busy portion of the image here without shrinking it.



Thanks! My base file is in Illustrator, so the file I give to them doesn't even have the halftone conversion done by me. I usually only convert a section of the design in halftones (for the shirt comp image), since the instructions say that Illustrator files should leave the gradients and let them do the halftone conversion.

Do you have Illustrator, if I just send you the AI file, or should I do the conversion on Photoshop and post/send it for/to you?

I can only explain so many time that selling a 1000 or less cute shirts is not as big as they think it is. Anyway I'll be here watching until these unicorn loving, rainbow crapping fanatics put Shirt Woot out of business.

Re: Busted



Love it. Reminds me of this shirt I saw yesterday:
http://www.redbubble.com/people/ryanastle/works/9205788-bustin-makes-me-feel-good

Just to be clear, I'm not accusing you of stealing it. Far from it. They are clearly different takes on the same concept. It's just funny that I saw them so close together. Like the universe wants me to have one of these shirts.

Happy to help!

Your main shirtcomp image should be halftoned. Woot wants your illustrator file without halftones so they can make their own, but they still ask everyone to convert the whole image to halftones for the shirtcomp, so all derby entries are free from gradients. (That might be one reason you've had some rejections)

It also ensures that the artwork can cleanly be turned into two ink, halftones. Not everything can be, of couse.

If you can process the whole thing into halftones now, then I'll gladly take a look at it!

Thank you so much!

I still have the full halftoned image of the "Creature of Shadoe and Flame" - I've uploaded a strip of it here:



I can send the whole thing to you if you can PM your email address to me...

Thanks!

Re: The Monster Cookie



Fantastic representation of the theme, Tony. It's a sweet idea and the great details add to the concept rather than obscuring it. +1

This is too evil scary for the derby. If it were a turtle on its back or something that's just scare your ass off with cuteness, I think it would be a hit.

Re: Creature of Shadow and Flame Resub



I think this is very cool artistically and would want it very much if it weren't for the horns. Somehow putting devil horns on Aslan doesn't work for me. Of course, without the horns it wouldn't fit the derby. I do hope Woot gives you a clear explanation of why this was rejected the first time around. When you know why it was rejected, you can try to fix and re-sub - but if you can't figure out why they rejected it, you're stuck. It's really too bad.

Re: I...GOT...IT!



Escape is still one of my all time favorites (and I'm still looking for a Women Medium btw ;)
This is totally in that lineage.
As long as there'll be robots, my guess is patrickspens will keep coming up with great designs...
