|mastronaut||I have some shirts I'm bandying about to see if there's any interest. I want to offer them on comfort T's which are pre-washed and come in a variety of nice muted colors. |
Shirts are here...
|Robert Pearlman||Did you intend to have the rectangular-shape background behind the schematic? |
|SpaceAholic||If the background can be removed I'd be interested.|
|arjuna||Ditto. If you can remove the background, you've got a winner.|
|ilbasso||I would suggest hyphenating S-IC to be consistent with the official designation.|
|onesmallstep||I can just picture the late Neil Armstrong wearing this, pocket protector-wearing engineer that he was |
|David Stephenson||I like it. Would you ship to the UK and what sort of price are we looking at? I commend your efforts by the way.|
|mastronaut||I can print it without the background. I was kinda going for a vintage note page type deal, but it didn't come out the way I'd hoped. So I will delete that. As for price I'm looking about $12.00 a shirt plus shipping to anywhere.|
As for the designation, what would it read like in your opinion? I am open to suggestions.
I would like to get info on size, shirt color and quantity so I can get an idea on how many I'll need to print. please forward that info to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll keep you posted as to when the shirts will hit the press and be shipped. I will be accepting PayPal. Thanks for the interest!
There will be many more designs under the 'Schematic Series soon!
|ilbasso||If you're open to renaming it, I might suggest "Rocketdyne F-1 Engine" or "Rocketdyne F-1". |
|mastronaut||Excellent suggestion! Thanks this has been a dream of mine since Apollo 11 in 1969 when I was 8 years old!|
|mastronaut||Okay, this is the final re-work.|
|Robert Pearlman||It looks like there is still a pattern/static behind the graphic, which will create a rectangular on the shirt. There is a large, clean scan of the artwork here, if it helps.|
|Joel Katzowitz||The link Robert provided for the artwork is certainly better than yours. However, there are still quite a few "broken/faded lines" in it that will read like a bad printing job on the shirt. It would take some time, but redrawing those lines will provide a much better product.|
|mastronaut||The sample is just for the idea, there will be no background at all. It will look like the scan Robert put up. (thanks Robert).|
|mastronaut||I recently purchased a mint hardcover copy of Stages to Saturn. I made a dust jacket/cover for it, brought it to my local library and had it plasticized. Feel free to download it here if you want a copy. Note: The Saturn V photo on the lower back pane is one I took when I visited KSC in 1992.|
|mikej||I have a larger, cleaner scan of the F-1 diagram from the Saturn V News Reference on my website. It's a different, slightly more detailed diagram, rotated about 90 degrees compared to the diagram above to show the heat exchanger and turbopumps.|
Feel free to "appropriate" that one if you find it more to your liking.
|mastronaut||My shop is moving to a new building (in progress), so I'll be ready to take orders for this design after the first of October. I will update you on a design that I think will go over very well! Stay tuned...|
|mach3valkyrie||Count me in for a shirt when you get settled in. Looks like a good plan.|
|Jerry Brouillette||Make that two.|
|PeterO||Count me in too. I'll need one to wear while I'm building my Accurate Miniatures 1/20 F-1 kit.|
|Gonzo||I'll want one as well. Keep us posted!|
|tegwilym||That's extremely geeky.|
(Put me down for one too though!)
