Exchange Tshirt for a larger size?

Hi friends....I love this site and do like to win, even if it's just a bunch of positive comments!  Recently I won a t-shirt and I didn't realize how small/close the sizes run.   (I believe I requested a women's large and in the comments I noted that I wanted the equivalent that would fit a women's chest 36-38".  I was disappointed that the Tshirt ran exactly 37" with no room to breath.  Unfortunately I didn't realize I was supposed to add a few inches for movement as none was built into the size.) My shirt has not been worn and it still has the manufacturer's paper tag attached.  Is it possible to return it to Instructables for a larger size? If so, then I'd like to request something that measures 42" from armpit to armpit - which would be great after shrinking!  (I realize the larger size may be considered too large for the female sizes available, and if so, the equivalent man's size would be appreciated over one that doesn't fit) If this isn't an option, perhaps future winners can be asked what size they want their shirt to run "from armpit to armpit".  Not only will this make more T-shirt winners be happy, but also, more Instructables advertising will be seen on the streets ;-D mega thanks!

Screenprinting colour registration on tshirts?

I am starting screenprinting on tshirts and am having a hell of a time getting the registration right for 2 colour. I have made 2 screens but what is the best way to register them on TShirts? Also when I iron the image after it has dried and there is any red that overlaps the white it seems to blend and turn pink. Any tips?

Has the "store" (t-shirts or other items) gone away?

Am I missing something, or have I lost a portion of my mind and we never had one?  I thought, at one time, we had a place to go to make our own shirts, but I have since lost the link, and can't find it here either.

Making something instead of buying is waste of time?

While searching the Internet for someone that has made their own Hot Press for making WPC (wood plastic composite) boards, I stumbled upon a Tshirt forum.  A man had posted a topic about how to make his own Tshirt heat press for making Tshirt designs.  The other forum members all decided it was a waste of time.  He should not bother trying because it's complicated.  In the end he would spend way more, and he could buy a used or cheap heat press locally. Is that not the ultimate irony?  People who post in a forum about making Tshirts tell another member that do-it-yourself is a bad idea.  Like buying a heat press to make your own Tshirts is a much better idea.  Do they all think they will be the one with that great design to put on a Tshirt and corner the elusive $100Billion Tshirt market?  Or do they just like to make their own Tshirts instead of buying one pre made.

Help me translate this how-to?

I found this how-to on a different website, and I really wanna try it, it's just that the instructions are kinda confusing. It's about how to resew a tshirt. I start to get lost around step 4, and then I'm completely lost thru the end. Could someone reword it for me? Thanks!http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/t_shirt_reconstruction_she_shirt

Mad Science Tee Shirts!

Hello fellow instructablers!  I started my first ever teespring.com crowd funded run of tshirts about a week ago, and I'm SO CLOSE to hitting my goal!   I figured Mad Science (being the best science) might be of interest to the rest of the instructables community.  This is my own design, and I'm pretty proud of it.  Perhaps you'd like to share your own love of Mad Science by sporting one of these awesome shirts, or giving one as a gift to the Mad Scientist in your life! As of this posting (December 4, 2013 at 9:00 pm) there's just 3 days and 19 hours to go!  If I get just 10 people to preorder they get printed (I'm at 9 now), and if I get more than that then I make a little scratch to fund future projects. http://teespring.com/bestscience

Game: Instructables Robot, World Explorer

The Instructables Robot loves wheeling around all day at home, but it yearns to see more of the world! It's been to a couple of interesting places in the past, but that's not enough.Our challenge to you: what's the coolest place you can bring the Instructables Robot? We want you to take a picture of the Robot in these locations and post them here. Instructables at the top of a tower? Instructables around the world? You decide!If you've ever seen the movie Amelie or heard of the travelling gnome prank, think of the various places the gnomes are photographed. The Robot could take those gnomes any day.The Robot could be a print out (see hi-res Robot images), an Instructables t-shirt, a sticker, a paper model, anything. Then, you simply need to take a picture of the setting with the Robot in it.Final rule: No Photoshopping!See below for some ideas. The Robot has its bags packed and is ready to go...

Where/How could i get/build a full body equalizer suit. any links? or will i be able to build it myself?

Im planning on going to Burning Man in Nevada, and I want an awesome costume. Since so much music gets played at night i was thinking i could get a full body suit, and attach led panels to it with a sensor to light it up to the beat of the music, like a music equalizer on the computer, or those tshirts with them on the front. Would anyone be able to get me links to some company who would customize one for me? Or where I could get the parts to do it myself? And how to do it myself?

Never receive my prize

Hi I was a winner (First 5) of the cardboard contest. I already received the instructables prize with my robot t-shirt.  Thanks it is great :) A few weeks ago I received a mail (not email) from Fedex describing the sending of my prize. I'm surprise to see that it mentions the sending of the prize "Three Month HowToons Subscription". First because I don't received this pack, I only received the tshirt from instructables (thanks it is great). And also because I'm in the First(5) winners and it's normally six month HowToons subscription and not three. Could you please tell me if I will receive it? Thanks for your response. Have a good day

Bungie Bag O' Swag

Hey guys, So, if you're as big a fan of Halo as me, you'd find that Bungie has a special Bag O' Swag on sale, for their 20th anniversary, and leaving Halo. They have anything from a Tshirt to a Zune to signed games to high-quality figures. There are only 777 in existence. AND I FRIGGEN GOT ONE! OH YEAH! What was the most interesting thing, though, was that people were staying up all day and night,trying to get one, and they didn't come close. I managed to get one by sitting at the computer for TWO AND A HALF HOURS, and my dad's bank account just got billed(also, Amazon, says it's being "processed for shipment") So, did anyone else get one?

Pep rallies=Brain rot.

Ok, so the school forces us to go to a crappy pep rally every time they have a football game.  This one was the worst. They started out with a tribute to Michael Jackson.  That was fine by me seeing how he is dead and I respect the memorial of dead people, but then they play his music through the WORST audio system ever made.  It turned So-So (In my opinion) music into the worst ever.  Then the school made us get up and do some of the moves for one of his songs, and I am not a dancing person, so you can imagine how pissed I was. They had their dance team do the moves for the rest of the songs, and then they put on stupid makeup to make the dancers look like zombies.  It was just stupid because they just looked like clowns with big baggy white Tshirts. Then they had some random stupid stuff that was supposed to be for comedic humor, and I did laugh, but only because it was so stupid. (Hint: It involves transvestites).  And then to make it worse, people start pulling out their cell phones and taking pictures like there is no tomorrow. At the VERY LEAST turn the flash and that shutter noise off. The end result was that I had a severe case of brain rot for 6 hours and I just recovered now. I think everyone who organizes pep rallies should be shot.  At least make pep rallies optional.  GAWD.

I won a contest, but my sugru wasn't included when my prize came.? Answered

I won the photo editing contest (runner up prize). The only reason I ever entered the contest was to win the sugru (haha) so that I can repair a few things around my house. My prize came today, and I received the SD card, TShirt, and a patch. But my sugru wasn't included. :( After looking back at the official rules to make sure Sugru was listed as a prize, I copied and pasted it here. Prize(s). The prize(s) to be awarded in the Contest is/are as follows: 1.(2) Two Grand Prize winner will be awarded a 16GB Apple iPad 2, a one-year Pro membership to Instructables.com, a t-shirt, and a pack of Sugru.

Question by trandolph   |  last reply


should I give up on entering contests/posting detailed unique ideas?

Disheartened by contest results, I really feel like pulling some of my instructables and not publishing any further ones (I am taking some time right now to work on another project I was documenting for instructables but I feel like there isn't a point to the extra time involved in pausing to take pictures of every little thing).  It probably seems silly, but I did end up shoving a whole bunch of my priorities aside to make sure it was in before the deadline. My original idea was not among the top 5%, some of which were things I could buy derivatives of in a store or have definitely seen before.  I guess I am just looking for affirmation that this is a pretty commonplace occurrence, and as a first time contest entrant that eventually something will pan out and I'll wind up with a tshirt (I mean that's pretty much all I want out of the deal, the prizes are nice but the tshirts are cooler. not that anyone would really ask about them, but maybe when I visit geek-saturated areas...) if I keep trying.   Perhaps I was too confident and it takes way more than 50 hours to make a winning instructable (through all my trials and errors, it might have been more than 50) You could tell me that my pictures or use of language were not as good as the others, but I am pretty sure I have a decent command of the English language and most of my photos were ok, with the exception of having a few from a cellphone, in the dimly lit space I had to work in.  Granted, those steps were so self-explanatory others would've just added them as a sentence i.e. "Cut the chain".  I also went through the other entries, also from last year, and was pretty certain I'd place. Could ascribing it as "NoDerivs" possibly have anything to do with how the sponsor judged it?  I just don't want someone using their modified idea for an NGO without considering consulting me, I am only partially employed and am looking for that kind of employment, even being consulted without pay would be a CV boost at this point.  I could care less how many people make it for themselves or other groups in their backyards, as long as they aren't selling the idea or trying to one-up me.  Perhaps I should consider a different license attribute and just write in plain text what I mean by it? How does everyone else network to get people to vote for their entries? When your instructable is complicated, how do you shorten it enough to make sure people of all levels can understand?   Do a few cellphone pictures in an instructable of many photos ruin it (I don't always have a camera on hand and until super recently I didn't have an SLR as mine was stolen in Peru - I had to borrow one for some of my photos)?  Not as many people seem to like my most complicated instructable, so I wonder if length or complexity factors in... Do you think length factors into contest decisions?  Because my next project is also long, as unique ideas often are.  And I don't want to skip describing details and just say "put the capacitor in" or "build a rectifier circuit" when, since I started building circuits this Fall (partially thanks to instructables), I would have wanted to know details like to bend legs of a capacitor if I was following an instructable, and I was super confused by an instructable (a featured one at that) that said simply "build a rectifier circuit".   Sigh, I guess I am just bitter that I won't get one of those awesome tshirts. should I post the next idea on instructables once it is completed or not?  Or are ideas like that generally not appreciated in this community?  (hint: it is similar to the light up swing powered by a bicycle dynamo I posted, but implements another piece of playground equipment instead).  Perhaps I should just keep them to myself until I've built them beyond working prototypes?   Sorry for all the questions and being a Debbie Downer, I am just reflecting on what could have factored into my entry not having been selected as one of the top 25.  I was pretty sure it was at least in the top 10 or so.  If I am going to improve on future projects, I want to know what I should consider focusing on, and if complex projects don't really belong here (or if others have good ideas on how to shorten them).  Thanks all.

The challenge starts on June 1, so if you haven't already left an "I Made It!" comment or posted a slideshow, you've got more than a full month to make something from the site. Linking to your version here isn't necessary, but means we won't accidentally miss it. I'll randomly pick one winner each day, and post the link here for you to check out.
