Holy crap, I printed with glow in the dark ink last night and it's AMAZING!  Check out this super Metal shirt I printed with it.  When you are in the dark, the image glows bright green with the black.

Tell me what you think!  

Thanks,

that shirt is pretty nice. the glow in the dark ink adds a nice touch.

I spent a few moments looking at your site - the pictures are awful. Too small and the "close ups" dont share much either. Hard to actually see the designs. I can only assume they are as cool as this one.

Glow-In the dark:  I just bought some of the ink, laid it down thick and in the back.  Then printed black on top of it.  It's pretty wicked.  When I get more time I will take a picture of it in the dark.  It's truly amazing.

Small Pictures: Ouch, The pictures have gotten a lot better from when I started.  Since I have OScom now I don't have any control of the size or placement.  It's all PHP and the coding is a nightmare.  Trust me; all the shirts are flippin amazing.

awesome.  i just bought some lime green and hot pink glow in the dark ink, but i haven't had a chance to use them yet.  i also don't think i would have thought about printing black on top of the existing glow ink.  any particular reason for not just printing the image with the glow ink?  just curious.

i dont think the pics are that small. i have horrible eye sight and i can make it out just fine. maybe if the design was more complicated or something. just use the enlarge option. anyway nice job, thats an awsome shirt. nice site too.

not trying to start a fight, but... regardless of the pictures being too small/not too small, it seems like the suggestion for larger/better pictures could have been a bit more tactful.

i totally agree. i tried to keep my mouth shut as not to stir the pot, but jessaska, calling his pics awful isn't exactly constructive criticism. it's pretty mean. especially when his stuff is so good and professional, the size of the pics seems kind of irrelevant.

not really - I like the work, I like what I think I see but because I cant get a clearer view of the merch I wouldnt buy it...even though I think there is a good chance that I would really love it. I wont apologize for wording this in a way that you dont like....deal with it. I wasnt trying to offend anyone, I said the work was great but that because of the other pics on the website I would just have to assume that they are just as awesome....

maybe you guys don't get it... Metal conquers ALL! picture quality don't matter!


i totally just bought one, and this being my very first online purchase, i am excited and kind of terrified.

and i'm totally going to try this glow in the dark ink. what company is it? "Speedball«Night Glo" ?

That would be awesome for a show! I made a glow-in-the-dark AFI shirt for their show and I got so many damn comments on it.

Yours blows mine WAY out of the water. It's so sexy that I would definately stare at it if I saw it... wow.

Wow, I just came back to this post since I have been on vacation, and then super busy since I got back.

jessaska:  Don't worry about your comment.  Harsh but true with the photography.  Its one thing I have not got down yet with the crazy PHP.  I'm having someone looking in to making it better for me.... because the code scrambles my brain.

Metal Shirt:  I printed black on black for two reasons, I only wanted the glow in the dark to be in the negative, and because it's fucking metal.  LOL.  I did use speedball ink for this, but it's costly and comes in a tiny container.  I have a better source for glow in the dark in now.

Screen Printing:  I'm now the proud owner of a four arm printing press.  It freaking rules, and I plan to do a lot more specialty printing.  I'm glad a lot of you like this creation.  I did it with the help of Illustrator CS2.  It's flippin amazing with the control on vector images now.  Below is the vector drawing of the artwork I did.



Thanks a lot for the support, this site rules, and so does the people that post on it.

That's the friggin' hottest thing I've ever seen. And that's coming from someone who doesn't even like metal.

that is so sweet of you to say.  I really need to re-print these with a new rad color combo.  Suggestions?

Also, I'm really super proud of my latest work.  I posted about the start of it on my BLOG off my partybots website.  Smiley

- much love
