What is they do that I can't using my inkjet printer and printable t-shirt transfer paper?

Okay nvm I clicked on the link and they're better quality. Okay the only potential issue there is quality of adhesion because it's not gonna be the same method for all the different styles OFC so we'd need to be consistent if we're going to produce/sell stuff.

Y'know, having an e-shop where we can sell merch to help fund the TLS travel bursary would be a lot easier if we had a forum upgrade.........

I've used printer transfer paper before. Tried again recently about a month ago for an outfit to wear to EXPCon. It just looks incredibly shitty if it's anything other than a picture with a square/rectangular border. At least with professionally made transfers the intricate details of logos will look good, and the material itself will last longer.

Quality of adhesion shouldn't be an issue as long as their are clear directions on how to apply the transfers with an even heat. Some of them may be applied with different temperatures and such.

I'd love to get a TLS store up; I've been researching a few things in my spare time.

I had a quick browse of the site and answered my own question.
Yeah, I'd like to see the ball moving forward on this one now too.

There's t-shirts, I know the rubber bracelets have been discussed at some point... I'd like to see key chains and/or lanyards. Maybe even some pins?

I've spoken to a few TLS members already about possibly contributing original designs for TLS merch, that way they can actually be sold and copyrights issues could potentially be avoided.

Lanyards would be awesome imo. I have a final fantasy lanyard I bought off eBay a decade ago... still holding up some quality material but the lettering has faded. Could have tls logoing an shit on them.

Yeah, but I'd rather have nothing for a change. How do you do it?
Well, it comes with practice. I can think of nothing.
I do not feel the need to occupy my mind with nonsense, just to avoid thinking about what really matters.

I'll second the idea for keychains.

What about decals? Like wall decals or car decals? I'd love some chocobo or moogle wall decals for my house.

I've said this on Discord but I'd really like a TLS t-shirt for Kupocon. Even if it's just an agreed-upon design which I could get printed myself.

^ Yap. It's probably better to go to a local print shop with a shirt you actually like as opposed to ordering a too-expensive one online and hoping it fits right.

So there's a print shop near me who have a minimum order of five t-shirts (IIRC it's about 15 for an across the chest print on five t-shirts unless I misread it which is entirely possible because I had to be reminded several times that today is Thursday). I can go enquire next week if anyone's interested, see if we can have different sizes in that bundle.

Any preferences on colour? I'm thinking dark grey or navy blue would look best. The grey would be a lovely contrast to the lifestream green.

For me black is the best choice.

Okay that's four people which makes it worthwhile so I'll follow it up. Any preference on sizes? I'm a large in unisex t-shirts, I'm gonna guess medium for Carlie and Flint (correct me if I'm wrong) and XL for Yop? I dunno, PM me with colour and size preferences and I'll go over next week as early as I can. Might ring 'em tomorrow if they're open.
