Techkeys T-Shirt
« on: Fri, 17 April 2015, 12:53:08 »
This was discussed a bit in Binge's thread, but I think it deserves its own place for discussion.


I was so enamored with Binge's artwork that he did for the business card that I wanted to put it on a T-Shirt.  I think digital printed T-Shirts look like garbage, at there is a lot of limitations with standard silkscreen.  I found a specialty shop that would CMKY print the shirt (4 screens that when blended can produce all colors).


I am thrilled with how they came out on high quality American Apparel shirts.

This is a great item.  The artist deserves serious accolade.   :p
60% keyboards, 100% of the time.

But yes +1 excellent work :)
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

I don't think there ever were smalls.  It is a great disappointment cause it's an awesome shirt :(
