To say I have a fully-fledged thought here would be a lie...
Basically, I have created this thread to bring together the design/art savvy Hedgewarriors who have Hedgewars designs, particularly for merch.
I have recently finished designing a Hedgewars hoodie through Custom Ink. Their website has very nice customer service and a really nice UI. Anywho, showed my finished product to the Irc servers for opinions. burp recommended talking about it here for people who would be interested in buying some.

Here is where things get tricky...
I am by no means capable of designing merch on a massive scale. To do that, you need money, which I'm not exactly swimming in. Moreover, I'm not entirely sure how the devs feel about merch for Hedgewars anyway. They've said there isn't anything stopping me, but I don't know where one would start on a business level like that.

so...

This is just a "you've got a design for merch? put it here" but as of this moment, there is nothing dictating merch at this moment. This thread can also be used as a poll for which designs we like best and if we were to hypothetically make merch, that is where we would be. Again, I haven't really thought this through, so I apologize for that. With that said, piece together what little sense this thread makes, and discuss it in the comments.

That sounds cool! Could you post links, or a pic of the design you already worked on?

I've seen services such as Redbubble that allow you to upload a graphic that can be printed on various merch and sold as one-offs. No need to start a business or mass-produce things. Any particular reason you wanted to do it that way?

Hm, I suppose the main reason was the word "official". That if we had an offical brand or specific design on merch, producing those, especially because by wearing them, there's potential advertising.

Didn't really think it through when I made the thread...

"Designed this myself through Custom Ink"

Actually, the images were made by the Hedgewars Project (I don't know who exactly), and not by you.

Please don't claim false credit.

Right, sorry about that. Poor phrasing on my part. Obviously all art on the hoodie belongs to the Hedgewars Project. I meant I put the images on the hoodie, but I didn't make the images themselves.

My apologies

Edit: removed the text off the pin. Should be good now. My mistake.

Heh. I already suspected it was just a mistake. No bad feelings.
