Chicago Tavern Style Thin Crust - THE TEE SHIRT
« on: January 10, 2021, 04:07:40 PM »
I'm working on a design for a Tavern Style Thin Crust Pizza Tee.
Would you buy one?

I think “Chicago” will limit sales and agree with Garvey too much verbiage and not enough clever, IMO...

Love this!   I think many people that grew up with this style dont know it is Chicago style.  I had a pizzeria in Pittsburgh making this style that was my families favorite.  I know this style is huge in Indiana.  I think your doing great with whatever you choose to do, but I almost wonder if just the picture with that signature cut is enough for the people that love this style.

I'm mainly looking for whether you'd buy a tee or not.

I appreciate the constructive feedback , but I'm not really looking for a lot of design input here.
That said, I still want to sell some, so I'm considering leaving the "tavern style" text off because locals get offended for some reason.
- various versions of "we know it's tavern style, you don't have to tell us" or "we just call it thin crust".

here's the latest modification.
I'm still working on making the pizza look right.

No interest, sorry.
 
FYI: Tee shirts with giant round images are the hottest, most sweaty and uncomfortable clothing ever...except for maybe a tyvek suit (which make great impromptu sled replacements on a snowy hill)
The method of ink transfer will determine wearability (soft hand sublimation or plasticity). Worked many years in the industry, and experience tells me that shirts with these large logos are mainly problematic. (We had so many complaints after the fact, while not heeding the many warnings about inevitable end consumer dissatisfaction during the actual design process).

The customer is always wrong?  :D

I mean, I don't really decouple those things above as separate.  Would I buy that design? No.  Would I buy a different one?  Yeah.

I would like a different picture, maybe a single square piece with sausage being held in the hand, where the piece has a little 'bend' to it.

And definitely fewer words; maybe just something like "chicago tavern style; it's hip to be square", or something like that.

Agreed.  I'd consider one featuring midwestern-styke thin crust though.   :chef:
