When was the last time they made a replica anything?

I know it isn't accurate, but I'll still probably get a couple...
...assuming they ever release it as a product and not just as part of a box full of swag.

I rather like that shirt. It's not a replica in the strictest sense, being more an expanding-the-Verse item. But I'm an Expansionist. A shirt design that looks like something Jayne *would have* worn is fine by me.

Jayne did wear an orange "dead fish" shirt with this design and Chinese character; it just looked and was placed differently.
So, it "is" a Jayne shirt, but not quite.

Okay good. I was wondering what didn't seem right about it and second guessed myself. Sheesh, now my question should be reworded to 'When will be the next time they make a replica anything?"

Hell, why wait? Make it for ourselves.

I'm terrible when it comes to printed material. I see it and I think of how I would do it differently. I can't help it. If it's printed, I start thinking photoshop and laser printing.

Duped? Yeah.

Suckage.

Another reason to make stuff for ourselves. We have more control over the product.

Of course, in terms of the tee-shirt design, you're pretty much stuck ginning up the image for a tee-shirt transfer and then ironing the image on. If you're going with a dark shirt, you have to use a transfer sheet that is opaque white and trim out all the white you don't want to transfer to the shirt. Depending on the complexity of the image, that's a lot of finicking around with an X-acto blade.

Or you could get one of the scrapbook industry cutting machines to cut the white out for you. I have been drooling over the Silhouette Cameo for goin' on a year now. It should be possible, if the cutting width of the finicky parts falls inside the allowances of the blade used.

Still, to get one of those babies, you're gonna be paying 250 bucks minimum and you have to allow for the costs of learning curve mistakes. I hope to earn enough money to buy one. Once that happens, I can start doing images on objects like shirts and totebags and so on. You know, physical products. Til then, I'll be doing mostly the digital and flat sheet prints.

Sigh ... and don't get me started on foiling. I get all bibbledy over it.

Sad, really.

Maybe it's still right for something.

So, maybe there is a way for the super accuracy folks to beat together a better replica.
But like I said, if QMx offers it for sale, I'll buy a couple.
