The drippy Lite Brite logo would have cost more to edit to format it properly to fit on the T-shirt than it would be to just have a new one commissioned, so I'm going with the latter option.

Turn around should be at most two weeks, but I don't want to space this out more than it needs to be.

Minimum order by the way, is ten T-shirts and we're up to 8, which means the 6 of us who have ordered shirts will need to absorb the full cost of the run, which will be $360 and come out to...

$45 per shirt
$15 per shirt to reimburse me for the artwork.

Final price will be $60 and I'll be receiving the shirts as one package, which I'll individually repackage and send to each of you. It's also going to take at least a week for the art to be completed, but the highest quality shirts he normally is able to source, aren't expected to ship out from the manufacture's warehouse in LA until at least May 15th (due to a lock down I hope isn't lifted).

We've a bit of time to obtain at least two more orders between waiting for the shirts and the artwork.

Anyway.. This has been RETROROMPER'S LESS THAN ENTHUSIASTIC UPDATE BECAUSE TDARCOS DECIDED TO BE A JACKASS.

He'd also have to tip the mailman $200 which makes these nonexistent shirts a tough sell.

Huh? I have a vendor, an artist, have run a form for people to be part of the group buy, and am working on a Feelie. I mean, they aren't existent because everything needs to come together, but it's in progress?

Also my family would tip the mail carrier $50 during the Holidays and I try to keep up the tradition. Plus! I just remembered this. Plus! My Grandmother instilled it in me to make sure they had water or a soda during summer deliveries.

My bad, I misread the room...It seems like you're making some good progress despite the setbacks, everyone should be really happy when this all comes together.

Did you see the updates I posted four or five behind your "accusation?" Were you not able to derive the fact that I've been actively working on this in some capacity, including calling Tdarcos directly multiple times to make sure he's still alive? I'll explain myself to you this one time, that I was dealing with my own personal stress and I wasn't sure if Tdarcos was still alive or not, so I stopped working on the shirts for a few days, when he made his "I'm alive" post. Then it took me a day or two, to feel up for finding and then approaching, a screen printer.

THEN it became obvious the lite brite wasn't fit very well, instead being squeezed into a space that made it look awkward, then after another few days, thought to contact the artist I've been working with.

Could you do better? Did you even think of doing something nice for your God, instead of fawning over him? You could have easily started this shirt thing, arranged to have Aardvark send him a doodle, or literally anything else that you did, such as create a Paul tracker? You didn't try to help him at all, you dumb ass piece of shit.

Wait. Hold on. I had no idea we could have a Vark doodle as part of the shirt. Maybe the big JC logo goes on back and a small vark doodle on left front. Also, does the shirt have to be black? Black shirts attract so many lints.

I guess we've found someone who agrees, or doesn't wabt to pay $60 for a T-shirt.

Commander, Retro is trying to do you a solid here. Were you being serious in putting him on your jackass list?

Either way, he should set up some sort of hidden camera in his room so that he knows which staff remember to report for stealing his 100 dollar shirt.

I actually hadn't thought of this, but it's a good idea and it isn't nearly too late to put it on the shirt.

No, not at all. White and other colors are available, it's more that I default to black for clothing (or darker colors.) What color would you like?

Can the Crazy Doodle be you never finishing the shirt project? For the irony of it when it appears on the shirt?
