Got a good Hoodie Idea
« on: December 20, 2006, 11:40:43 AM »
hey all, I don't know how many of you already have PK hoodies, or how many of you would be willing to join in on this.. but I have an idea for a good custom hoodie design, and it's better pricing to buy with multiple people.

So, I was thinking about grouping up and making our own custom hoodies..

I can take care of ordering, and the shipping.. so if you want to do this, just let me know..

what I'll need are emails for everyone interested (I'll send each person a picture of the final ideal design of the sweatshirts)
Right now, I'm thinking that they are going to be medium to heavyweight hoodies (which is 9.0 to 10.5 ounces)

I think that the front will say Parkour on the left breast, and probably your name of choice. If the people of APK are alright with it, I would like to have American Parkour or APK on the back (with some sort of design, undetermined as of right now)

If you are interested, let me know.. Either by replying or emailing me at phishfi@gmail.com . I will have all of the finals shipped straight to me, and will mail them through whatever is best for pricing (but I want to get it to you all within a week of me getting them).
Ideally, I think we need 12 to get the first set of discounts, but they get cheaper as you go up. so MORE IS BETTER.

reply soon, I will determine a deadline for payment as soon as we all have an agreement on the design/color/price. The companies I'm looking at should be able to change the color as well, so if you think you'll want it in a different color, that is NO PROBLEM.

if you have a preference, let me know, I will be able to work that preference in as long as I have prior notice.

Thanks a lot guys! Hope to get this going soon!

if you have any design ideas I'd be happy to see them and pitch them to my guy running the designs.

The other night I accidentally created a parkour logo  when I was getting used to a photoshop tool, I think it looks good and kind of speaks to what parkour is about.
It's very minimalist, feel free to modify, suggest I modify or use it as is. If anyone wants the *.psd for it let me know and then contact me on AIM or leave your e-mail here.

here are a couple variations I played around with

That's actually pretty cool. I might have to use a variation of that!

Thanks for posting, I'll save that pic for later.

if you make a custom hoodie try to make it like american apparel or something like that because there jackets have a really nice soft inside material and its thin but it keeps you warm really good

sure.. I'll let you know about a designing scheme for specific areas as soon as I talk to the company making them for me..

of course, I'll need the address and everything (but I'm in no rush to go figuring out where everyone lives yet)
I'll let you know as soon as I know.

Why not on the back we have names of apk traceurs and freerunners?
