In response to requests for Most Epic Win merch, we’ve been speaking to YouNeek about doing some custom t-shirts and hoodies for us (thanks for the hook-up @Wyvern!)
@Wyvern has also approached a contact about doing caps, stickers, and lanyards, mugs, tumblers, and water bottles.
The next step is for us to submit designs to print on the t-shirts, hoodies, and face masks.
Our current rhino mascot is just a simple royalty-free clipart that I found on the Internet when I was messing around with Discourse, before MEW was MEW.
This is an open call to the community for suggestions.
I prefer more low-key designs, but if the community votes to have MOSTEPICWIN emblazoned large in and all caps over their ass on the hoodie, then so be it :D.
Here is the feedback I received from YouNeek so that we’re all on the same page:
Greatness, thanks for the artwork. Although simplistic, I do think the Rhino would look pretty cool on hoodies and tees! Do you have a specific placement for the printing you would prefer? I would recommend the rhino on the left chest for the tees and nice and big in the center for the hoodies. For face masks I think it would look nice and clean to have the Rhino on the one side and MEW on the other.
A quick ballpark for these would be:
Tees: R200 per t-shirt
Pullover Hoodie: R400 per hoodie
Zip-up Hoodie: R435 per hoodie
Face masks: R35 per face mask
Our quality is always our utmost priority, so you can be rest assured about that.
The colours for the garments can be mixed and matched or one-colour. For example, grey sleeves, black body etc. Sky is the limit
A cat mascot option would be nice as well I think. It would be flippen cool if the cat mascot could be in the same style as the rhino!
Let me know your thoughts and we can take it from there
So to recap, here’s what’s needed:
- Cat mascot. Royalty free or intellectual property owned by forum member which can be ceded to MEW (or inexpensive to buy a licence for — costs of artwork can be recouped in merch sales).
- T-shirt and hoodie designs based on the cool products on offer at YouNeek. Where do you want the logo? Where should the text go?
