Ah, that Roswell project! IMOHO Roswell is to cabinets what your Robotron is to control panels. :P Sort of an early itteration of 1UP's masterpiece. It's really amazing to see how things just keep getting better. I'll be looking forward to the Zappercade revival and lurking around on the company dime! ;) Here's a pic of where your CP led me. I'm sure you'll see the heavy Robotron3000 influence in the shape and layout. :o  



Sorry for the OT rambling everyone  :-[

Back on topic... When are we deciding on a shirt design?

And semi-off topic... I'm hoping to do a run of hats with the following design. If Saint/the powers that be don't object to the BYOAC reference, I'd like to go forward. I'd need 16 orders to make it possible. Price would be roughy $8.50 - $14 per hat (depending on brand) which is at cost, no markup. If there's a lot of interest, I'd like to mark 'em up a bit to donate the profits to Saint. Colors and exact hat style to be determined - hat color MIGHT be changeable on an individual basis tho logo color wouldn't. These would be cotton baseball hats - "unstructured" (which means they don't have that bulgy prosthetic forehead lining thingy in front). The design would be embroidered in 2-3 colors (1 for the majority of the logo, 1(lighter) for the joystick, and white for the BYOAC. The joystick would be redrafted to avoid copyright/design infringement w/Happs. Please look past the really bad roughed up lo rez comp below... this is only to give a general idea of what it would look like.

16 orders and it's a go if Saint gives the green light. :)   If you're ready to order email or PM me.

FWIW those who are interested in the invader design-I'm still trying to make that shirt run happen...this is just easier.  :P

I made a variation of my blue logo with the coin slot connected with the BYOAC part. It's just a test, I'm not sure if I like it more than the original yet.

Nice panel Pixel. The wood finish, blue background and the designs around the joysticks and trackball give it a nautical look.

6 of one half dozen of the other  :P I like both - actually maybe I prefer the one with a bit of separation between the C and the coin slot. Either way it looks good. I def. prefer the design on black - notwithstanding the fact that I've always felt black t shirts are the exclusive domain of heavy metal tour shirts.

here's what i would pay for if these designs were available in a color i like:

that cap, but hopefully the adjustment strap isnt gonna be that cheap plastic button thing (the only thing stopping me from wearing it too much would be the atom swirls on it, makes it look like we're a bunch of nerds and geeks...which we're not, right???)
zapper's blue design on white
pixel's last design, the one thats in a neat little box, on black

c'mon someone do something with these designs so i could go out and spread the joy of our hobby!!

Mastercave -  The hats would be very high quality washed or brushed cotton twill/canvas. The strap would be fabric or leather with a brass adjustment clasp. The atomic design has be nixed by the embroiderer as it exceeds the capabilities of the machines to stitch - lettering is too small :-\ I'm now thinking of doing either the 1 player button design or some variant of the joystick logos I've posted in this thread. Hat color would almost certainly be changable per order. Woo hoo!

I'm not sure how old this thread is (I already starting posting so I don't feel like going back to check the dates  ;D), but a lot of professional sites actually use cafeshops.com for their merchandise. Ever hear of Digital Blasphemy? They use it and they say on their main page that they've had "good luck" with them in the past. You should check them out; you can open a store and sell as little or as much of any of the products they offer as you want. Again, sorry if this is too late  ;D

edit:
I'd just like to add, that you may be thinking of another way to product your T-Shirts to a:) make more profit (since i'm assuming you are buying in bulk), and b:) selling them for your own price (in case you think their prices are too expensive). But you could also use cafeshops on the side, for the rare customers that would like a BYOAC Clock, Mouse Pad, Hat, Coffee Mug etc. But whatever, suggestions are only suggestions!  ;D

edit #2: (sorry its nearly 5am and I have nothing better to do, well, than sleep  ;))
you could alsoooo use it to have backup designs. like 10 other designs, so the customer gets to choose which one they like best. remember, cafeshops has equipment set up that creates the products on a per order basis, sso you don't have to pay any start-up fees or anything like that. and NO i am not affiliated with cafeshops.com, and there may be sites 100x better out there for all i know. I just like to input ideas.

P.S.
that original logo with the button for the 'O', very cool  ;D
Also the original cartoony style logo. (sorry I don't remember the names of the creators).

P.S.S
I'm a newb, I know it, flame me all you want if there's anything you don't like, and congrats for reading all of this jibberish!

Cafepress.com looks like a no risk way to make the most popular items available.
No up front investment and there could be more than one chosen design.  Sure
it costs a bit more but it is convenient.

The final hat design (joystick logo) is now available and I'm taking orders. Head over to this thread-  http://www.arcadecontrols.org/yabbse/index.php?board=2;action=display;threadid=10270                                                        

Obviously this has nothing to do with the t-shirt.

OT - hat looks kickass and I can't wait to get mine.

On topic...I just finished a controls.dat logo, which I think looks pretty cool.  Anyway it gave me an idea for a new big logo for BYOAC.  Actually it will be more of a t-shirt design than logo...I'll post it when I finish it.

I love the multi colored one, that is incredible. Very professional looking! I would wear it. Put that on the back of the shirt with a small BYOAC on front pocket area.

I saw all the custom controls you had in there (Atari cone buttons, Tron stick, etc..)
All you are missing is the SW Yolk! Maybe set it up sideways & replace the "E" in Arcade with it...

hehe...

It does look good though...

Maybe we could use "Would you like to push my buttons?" as a slogon on the back with a simple joystick & 3 or 4 button layout...

That would be great...

Next I'll be on fries, and that's when the big money starts rolling in.

Hey thanks guys, I appreciate the kind words! :)

Yeah I like the multicolored one as well, in fact I printed out a few tabloid sized and they make great wall posters!  This is really more of a t-shirt design than a logo I suppose, but maybe I can make something matching that's much smaller, like an actual logo in case people would want this on the back and something small on the front, like eightbit mentioned.  

Pixelhugger - they started as vector, but then I just ended up doing everything in photoshop.  Nice and sharp, though, which is all that matters :)

Excellent stuff! Frosty - a big huge round of applause for taking the ball and running with it. I had no idea this, "how you say Z...A...Z...Z...L...E" thing existed. Beats the freakin pants off screen printing costs. I was a bit skeptical until I saw the images and read about their process. No edge around the image. No decal like puckering. Just ink infused thread. Amazing.
