The Second part of this series is up with T-shirts from New Horizons, Springpath, Zert0, OneNeck and Thinprint.
Name : New Horizons
Model: C-port 100% Preshrunk Cotton
Quality: The Quality of this shirt feels good too, a bit too thick but that ensures durability. I like the Pre-shrunk ones, as they don’t warp as much when washed.
Print: The Front has a big I’m all about that upgrade amidst a list of a bunch of technologies they offer courses on. And the back has a bit oversized company Logo
Conclusion: The two things that are dragging this shirt down is the fact that they only have XL, and even though they claim its US sizes, it really isn’t. The other is the colour is a weird faded burgundy that I really don’t like.
Model: District Made 50% Cotton 50% Polyester
Quality: Eventhough this isn’t 100% cotton it feels really soft and nice to the touch
Print: The print on the front is the company logo weirdly placed on the left of the shirt, and the back has a nice smaller sized version of the logo.
Conclusion: Again a company that doesn’t make sized bigger than XL. Please have your marketing people change this for next year.
Model: Next Level 60% Cotton 40% Polyester
Quality: The quality of this one is a bit like the PernixData one, a bit too thin, and it feels like it will very likely warp out of space after a few washes.
Print: A Donkey SmartASS on the front, with actually no company logo at all. But tied to their Solution Exchange theme. Not a shirt I would plan on using after the show
Conclusion: The quality and the print are what drags this one down.
Model: C-Port & Company 100% Cotton
Quality: A bit heavy on the fabric, which will make it somewhat warm to wear, but otherwise a nice one
Print: A “Spoof” of all the Keep Calm and … shirts, where they put Hug a Printer at the bottom instead. Kinda funny once, but I don’t see myself wearing that shirt outside the convention. Will bring it back for my Printerguy at home though.
Conclusion: An ok shirt from Marketing, but not sure what the idea really is. Might of course be hard to create anything really nice with something as boring as printers 🙂
Model: Next Level 100% Cotton
Quality: Again a Next Level one, that I don’t really feel will hold up to many washings
Print: A somewhat Simple white drawing of a Dragon being fought off by two Zerto Knights, and the back a list of all the conventions which they will attend
Conclusion: Zert0 was the first shirt I rated really bad, and they did improve for 2014, and had promised me that this year would be better. So somewhat disappointed in this T-Shirt. You can do better!
