just a small update, while we're basically finished with the design, i'm about to move to portland (finally) so the actual printing will be delayed by a few/couple of weeks. i'll make a big announcement here though when they're ready.

i gotta move to portland (from washington) this week, so as soon as i find a room to rent there i'll get all my supplies sent to me from my parent's house. i want to do it asap, but i think realistically it'll be maybe a month from now. i'll definitely be making an announcement in this thread and posting links on the frontpage/sidebar of stp. trust me, you won't miss it :)

ya sorry i meant chaos star, and pretty much just some scales which is the usual symbol of justice but i think it might be cool to include that as a little thing to represent the road's justice. Seeing as how She's the governing body for most of us.

why not do a series of designs, and let people choose which one they want? I'll be posting about it in the obituaries, but on 8/30 my girlfriend was killed trying to hop a train while running from the cops high. We were both in recovery for drug use, so sporting little booze bottles in the design would automatically dissuade me from buying a bandana. Alcoholism and drug addiction are...well, I'll leave the impact of that on nomads for a different post. Point is, the website no-gods-no-masters.com gives options for different locations of the different designs you want, and I think that would be better. Personally, I'm a pretty hardcore bicyclist. The circle-a with the bike in it is a design I've got on multiple patches and t-shirts, would make a great bandana for me. Maybe someone else is better off with a boxcar and a 40oz. http://www.elpasotimes.com/latestnews/ci_26442014/woman-killed-saturday-central-el-paso-was-trying

I definitely understand where you're coming from unfortunately at the time right now I only have one screen available so I can only print one image at a time and this is kind of the first run of the image so I don't really have the option to do multiple designs at the moment but maybe at some point in the future that might be a possibility.

No gods no masters is a really big print shop they have really tons of really good so screening equipment and so they can afford to let people just customize whatever designs they want. Im literally just one guy in someone's living room with a couple of pieces of wood and some silk screening material and a little bit of paint so it its ultra DIY so that's why I can't really do more than one design right now.

I know the current design isnt perfect for everyone but it is what's most popular at the moment so this is what the first run will be. I'm definitely into making alternative designs though so keep the suggestions coming and once we get this first run done and get all the problems out of the way we'll be able to do different designs and hopefully make everyone happy [emoji1]

Thank you to everyone for voting in the poll it's turned out way better and more interesting than I thought it would be and it really gave us a good idea of what the best image would be for this first run. For now we're going to keep the anarchy sign and squatter signs on each corner as seen in the last posted image. Getting these printed is at the top of my list of things to do once I move into a place here in Portland so as soon as it's ready to be sold I'll let everyone know!

id like a plainish one like the first, but with the hand drawn squat n and instead of the a, putting a hand drawn get out fast with the arrows aiming in the corner (the circle with two arrows), catch out here, safe camp, and/or maybe bread and man with gun if you really don't want space

idk I kinda like em all though. I just kinda like it less cluttered and without the bike stuffs. (which is funny, I ride a lot of bikes)

i like the 2 circle a's, 2 squatter's rights design but i think you should keep the center design from the bike gear design i also agree with those who think that it should look a bit more hand drawn

I know it's pretty late in the game, but I wanted to ask what material these would be printed on. I'm assuming it would be done on cotton due to cost but maybe there's some cheap synthetics out there? Just my 2 cents.

um... id have to double check. i think it's a blend of cotton with something else. honestly, i went with the cheapest deal i could find. the material is definitely good enough, but if someone could help me find a better distributor of black blank bandannas (preferably for $2/per piece or less) I'd sure appreciate it :)

i'll have pics of the first run up in a few days.

I love the design. But I agree with the others, should roughen up the SR symbol and the A so they look more hand drawn. The clean lines stick out a little too much.

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
