Not that I am implying board members are dirty, but has anybody washed their shirt yet?
If so has it shrunk at all?
I ordered an XL and this size with American shirts is normally slightly loose on me, however this shirt is a bit tight.
If they shrink, I will use the two eevblog ones on order as presents I think and order XXL next time.

haha, or if someone washes it for other reason before wearing one? but, i dont think they'll shrink much, and after all, when you wear any piece of clothes, i'll shape towards body shapes....but i would think that maybe you should use that bigger one, and give smaller as gifts, tight t-shirt is one of nastiest things....but this is all my opinion :D

Tight T shirt is alright with certain people.......... just saying.

I generally always wash new clothes before using them, you then can see if the dyes will run, if the cloth will shrink and if it will dry misshaped.

Printfection shirt (left) vs the TeeSpring shirt (right)




The Printfection one is essentially 2 colour, but the Teespring one is much better and coler to the original hand drawn style. In fact it has a very funky texture.
I'm not sure why the Printfection one is so 2 colour drab? Is it the printing process or pre-processing of the uploaded image?

That's a pretty big difference, I'd be pretty pissed at printfection if I had done a run of shirts... and where's mine? I'm only an hour down the coast from you!  >:D

Different screen manufacturing techniques, the one is using 3 ink colours and 3 different screens, while the other is just using 2 screens and halftones to get the image density changes. The 3 screen method uses extra time and needs 3 ink cycles and drying between passes to dry the ink, though you can get a high rate with care and a 6 screen carousel with alternate screens used to dry ink, but this takes care and practice. 2 colours has a higher rate on the same carousel, you skip 2 stages each time.

It's now tested, washing has no negative effect on shirt, no shrinking/mis-shaping, bleaching of text/ink or whatsoever :).

Lord knows the government would go bankrupt if they didn't make 67% off every imported T-shirt!  ::)

Have to say, I'm grateful the worst hardship I have to get the vast majority of packages is the 250 foot (that's 76m for you normal folk...) walk to my mailbox.

Was going to hoof it to the PO today, but when I looked next it was home time............ Tomorrow got to go get some clutch plates made very quickly, as the old ones I looked at in the industrial gearbox are looking very sick currently, they are busy falling apart, but as they are in a cage they still work, but still need new ones before the remains fall out. Clutch and Brake place will make as per sample....... Still got one left as sample. Then need to get out the 65AF socket and breaker bar to undo the nut.

Practised my Recoiling skills again, go to undo one bolt and it just came out complete with corroded thread. went and got the kit and the hand tap, and then recut the whole hole through the alloy base and installed the extra length M6 insert and put the bolt in again.  Need to order a few more inserts now, M6, M5, M4, M3 are all low, but on the plus side still have plenty of M16 and M12 inserts around.

Any Aussies got theirs yet? Still waiting here in Queensland.
Not easy, not hard, just need to be incentivised.

As Christmas is coming up, I thought i'd have a look around for T-shirts to suggest people get me (to avoid getting novelty farting toys) and I was wondering when you guys were next looking to make some more?

Well, I suppose it's finally time to roll this out. They're not cheap, which I apologize for, but we're not getting any profit either right now (the dark shirts cost more to print for some reason). These are the same shirts we send out to people for contests and such.

Well, we had them all at 25 before to get a couple bucks per shirt. But once you factor in shipping, that would have been well over 30 for most people, significantly more for people outside the US.

I used the "I still want one" button to reserve a T-shirt for the next run. It said only nine more people needed to reserve the T-shirt for it to go again.
