Registration for the site takes under 3 seconds, and then a new user can upload, submit their own ideas, as well as vote other designs that has already been proposed.
The merchandise will be created by the Cascadian screen printing company Kotis Design, who created the first batch of T-Shirts and Hoodies. Aside from being available for purchase online, will be funded through a Kickstarter that we begin in early May, which will serve as a pre-order for stickers, bumperstickers, T-shirts and hoodies, and to try and drop the cost as low as possible.
So here's how the process will work:
- Upload your ideas as soon as possible! If you already have an image, you can either upload it to the photo hosting site Imgur for free, or go to Kotis Designs website where you can preview how it would look on a T-shirt or Hoodie. After that, just submit a link in the comments section on our post.
- Vote on other people's ideas by May 2nd
- Favorite Ideas will be taken, and worked by the graphic design team from Kotis to be printed on several types of garments (T-shirts, sweatshirts etc.)
- Early in May we will begin a one month Kickstarter campaign to help us raise money to do a bulk order, which will drop the price as low as possible. Prices will sit at-cost (and whatever is reasonable for the printers of course), with any extra money going into creating more merchandise. Cascadia Swag will also be available for purchase anytime through an online store we will be setting up, or directly from their website, as well as patches, stickers, flags and any other merchandise people can think of.
