When they email me if they ever do…
i dont know if I need more votes?

It’s determined by more than just votes, and it’s all up to DBH, so they may never email you, and they tend to go for the more graphic designs. If it doesn’t get printed here I suggest to try other sites, and see if they’ll go for it.

Doesnt threadless print full body’s?

evan3 evan3 Artist

yeah they do…kinda
when this was at threadless and got a 3.7 score but wasnt printed they said it was so because it was “unprintable” but i think it was because they didnt want to print it….

I am 95% sure I would buy this shirt if it got printed.

Holy crap this shirt makes my day!!!! I would buy this in a heartbeat.

I agree with Threadless – I think it’s unprintable.

If they do white ink on a red shirt, it will probably look slightly pink. Or it will have to be really thick ink, making the shirt stiff and uncomfortable to wear.

If they do red ink on a white shirt, you’re going to have white cracks showing all around the seams of the shirt, which will ruin the design and just look bad.

So yeah… i wouldn’t hold your breath for that email.

Unprintable my ass!

great things take risks

Haha, I’m sure.

Keep believing. ;)

So how would you guys suggest getting around the problems i pointed out?

Found this website because of this design. They need to figure out SOME way to do it… It must be possible!!!

um white ink on red shirt
like this one


greentaylorsimms greentaylorsimms Artist from United Kingdom

That shirt looks yellow to me… and the largest area of ink is black. Big difference.

White is the least opaque colour of ink, meaning it’s hard to make it look good without laying it on thick. So with an area as large as your pokeball shirt, it’s going to be like wearing a coat of armor. I guess if you want to sacrifice that comfortability, then maybe it is possible.

Or if you dont mind a thinner coat of ink in exchange for a slightly pinkish white. Here’s an example of what i mean – http://www.designbyhumans.com/shop/detail/4044

Don’t get me wrong – i’m not trying to hate on your design. I think it’s a clever idea. I just don’t see it happening. Hopefully i’ll be proved wrong.

well yeah that shirt is yellow
and there will be just as much ink on this one like Modern Style by Brilliancy

thanks to the recent votes — can it reach 350?

One of the best t-shirts I’ve ever seen. How can we get this printed? Just by votes?
Want is an understatement. Need is more accurate.

Votes don’t matter.
Shirts only get printed if the staff wants them to.

Modern Style is completely different though. It’s on a light-colored shirt, and the inks being put down are darker than the blank. Putting white on red is totally different. Have you ever tried to paint something white that used to be red? You’d definitely end up with a bulletproof slab of white plastisol on your chest unless you wanted it pink.

Perhaps they could put the red ink down on a white/silver tee, but they would have to try to do a wraparound print I think and it still might not avoid the seam issues mentioned by greentaylorsimms (but it would also make it more expensive to print, although it would look way cooler.)

I guess its just one of those shirts that just wasn’t meant to be.

I want this shirt SO much. I really hope it gets printed~! <33
