I've been playing around with some design ideas for some merchandise and I wanted to drop it here for you all to see.
This is a blueprint style design based on the upcoming run of Leia inspired sabers that myself and Patrick of (AFE Machining and Design) are working on. With the emotional line from the end of Rogue One, and then the passing of our beloved Carrie Fisher, it seemed like a fitting tribute to bring this together.
I am looking for interest in t-shirts of this design, in a variety of possible colours. (White, black, dark blue, dark green, and possibly grey as well.) I am still waiting on pricing from a few local vendors for this, and will update it accordingly when I know more, but I wanted your feedback.
First off, yes, I know that some have said that the front graphic is possibly a bit high, and may need to be lowered. That is not a big issue at all and can be adjusted at the time of printing.
So, let me know what you think, and if you might be interested in purchasing one of these to go along with the Hope saber.
This basic design template is something I am hoping to offer with every model of saber that I release as time goes on.
profezzorn: hey ARKM, did you ever write a that tutorial on the toner transfer method?

ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.

profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
