Disclaimer: Since this is a "poor man's" gang run, and to help keep costs down so we can give you slots for super cheap, we will not be shipping in custom boxes with newsletters. We will be sending priority flat rate.
One design per gang run slot! You can purchase as many slots as ya like!
Sign up is ONLY available Weds August 15th through Friday August 17th. Spots close at 8 pm Pacific Time on Friday the 17th. Unlimited spots as long as you purchase during this time period.
ARTWORK DUE BEFORE 8 pm Pacific Time Friday the 17th. If I don't get your artwork before eight pm I will keep the money and move on printing everyone else's artwork. Because it's all printed together at the same time, one person not sending me art can inhibit me from printing 100+ other people's work.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BELOW!!! (STUFF HAS CHANGED I PROMISE!!)
IF YOU ARE LOCAL AND WOULD LIKE TO PICK UP LOCALLY!!! Choose "I'M LOCAL" when you purchase!! That's the ONLY way to be on the local pickup list. Otherwise, choose "SHIP EM"! If you are local, you will be charge $17 for your slot, and the shipping that automatically gets tacked on will kick you up to the $25 for your slot. We're trying to be clever and hopefully are not making it more confusing. Local pickup is PDXChange!!! They are on Mississippi street: 3916 N Mississippi Ave, Portland, OR 97227. Please be sure to check their hours before heading over and wait till we post that they are ready to pickup!!
Artwork can be any shape but I'll be proportionately fitting it into a 2.5 by 2.5 inch square space. Keep that in mind and don't send me long skinny images or you will be wasting lots of your space when I shrink it down to fit. Please be advised, your stickers will arrive UNCUT- you will need to cut them out with scissors.
PLEASE... be sure to check your email the few days after the artwork deadline. If there are any changes that need to be made or the file format is wonky I'll need to be able to contact you. Vector PDF, 300 resolution scan or digital artwork saved in Jpg would be great. Tif is fine. So is PNG. Don't send me weird web files like Gifs, DON'T pull your artwork off the internet. I'm not responsible for forfeit spots due to corrupt files that will not open.
Please email your artwork to firstname.lastname@example.org and include the name you paypalled under so I know which address goes with which artwork. Not the EMAIL account, the name associated with your paypal address. My intern MsToofAche will be the one kicking through all the gang run emails, she'll confirm she got your image and work with you if there is an error with your artwork.
Remember- if your artwork is pixelated when you send it to me- it will look that way when screen printed- send me high quality files!
Send me BLACK AND WHITE files please. Screen printing requires a clean black and white image to expose to the screen. No pencil shading, no pencil at all. Black ink is best for scanned images. If you want to establish gradient- use cross hatching or dot work.
Be sure your image does not have tons of fine detail- screen printing is not like digital- I cannot get super tiny lines. Please be sure to check your email within a couple hours of mailing me your image in case I ask you to send me a less detailed file or have questions.
I am adding shipping charges to every order- 8 for US and $24 for Abroad. Sorry my abroad peeps, they've been raising the prices for abroad shipping and it really is getting nasty.
If I forget to send my artwork- why won't you refund me?
Sadly a few ruin this for the rest. When I began doing gang runs a few years ago, I would refund people when they forgot to send me artwork. This taught people it was okay to purchase slots and then decide later if they wanted to do the run or not. Many people banked on the fact that they could get their money back and the amount of time I spent collecting and entering their information into my log sheets and setting up templates to only be shafted in the end is not something I can do over and over. Accountability is important, and I only want serious people involved in the runs.
Why don't you cut out the stickers?
I have a sticker cutting machine, but it requires wide margins of blank vinyl space, registration marks, and specific restrictive vinyl colors and ink colors. It wastes a lot of material and take a very long time to feed each sheet individually into the machine. It would drastically increase the price of the runs and the amount of time to finish them if we cut them out. It would also render a lot of the creative themes we do completely impossible. Keeping them uncut maintains a low price point and a quick turnaround- not to mention cool unique themes.
Why can't I send you images pulled off my instagram page or the internet?
When you upload an image to to the internet, like via social media, the image is automatically compressed to a smaller file size and resolution. It may look crystal clear on your phone but when I zoom in to begin getting it "print ready", it is very very pixelated and loses tons of detail. Crystal clear screen resolution is 72 dpi, crystal clear print resolution is 300 dpi. So send me original scans or digital files that are 300 resolution :)
