DPW HOODIES

BY COUGAR BAIT

What’s going on here?

I started designing and printing my own DPW hoodies last year. They turned out alright, so I’m offering them to you as well.

Who are these for?

These are only for people working DPW in 2019.

What kind of hoodies are these?

These are Unisex Full Zip Hoodies by AWDis (JH050). They’re 80% Soft cotton, 20% Polyester, and weigh 8.3 oz /yd².

They’re available in Small, Medium, Large, X-Large, 2-X. They can be black, white, or (gasp!) a variety of colors. 

These are White, Yellow, Black, Bright Green, Dark Green, Steel Grey, Heather Grey, Bright Blue, Navy Blue, & Red.

How much do these cost?

These cost $39.89 each.

Although, they get cheaper the more we order (e.g. $32/hoodie over ten and $30/hoodie over twenty).

If you send me $39.89 I’ll refund you whatever price breaks we manage to get up to.

I’m not making money off of these. Here’s a breakdown of the cost:

$19.29 for the garment + $6.20 to print to the front side + $6.20 to print to the back side + $8.20 for shipping = $39.89

How are these different from the ‘official hoodies’?

The most recent DPW hoodies are Beimar’s Zip Hoodies.

The zippers on these are plastic (not metal), but are colored to match the hoodie itself.

These are also printed through sublimination, not silk screening. This means the prints are not quite as bright or vibrant. Although, it’s difficult to notice unless you’re looking at them right next to each other.

Here’s a picture of a 2018 hoodie next to one I had printed (look past the cat hair):

Are these sweatshop hoodies?

No. Based on my research, AWDis only uses WRAP (Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production) certified factories.

 

When do I have to place an order by?

July 15, 2019 @ 1:00PM (CST).

Any requests past this date need to be made through me directly at cougarbait@burningman.org. No promises.

 

When will I get my hoodie?

I’ll expect these to arrive the first week or two of the work season after fence day, but this will depend on the total we order. If you’d like yours faster or ‘as soon as possible’ let me know in the form and we’ll work something out.

 

What kind of designs can I choose from?

Take a look at the ones below and select what you’d like to use in the order form.

ORIGINAL

REMASTER

COBRA

BLACK&WHITE

PIZZABACK

Can I request a custom design?

Sure, show me what you’ve got. Send me your designs at cougarbait@burningman.org. Alternatively, I can try and design something for you. If you’d like my help doing something, just be as clear as possible up-front in the form so I don’t want to hurt you.

We can NOT do fades or transparencies in custom designs. This form of printing involves printing white on a garment first, then the colored ink, which means any part of an image below 100% opacity would have an increasing amount of white showing  and looks stuipd on dark or black fabrics.

Here’s the area we’re able to print on for the front and back, for reference:

Can I have my name on it or custom text inside the logo?

Yep! As long as it fits. I’d actually recommend having your playa name put in the bottom of the logo on the front like the one above; It makes it slightly harder to lose.

 

Could I get something else made besides a hoodie?

Yes, as long as it’s something from Printify’s catalog.  They have a wide range of items, just refer to them by their model numbers and I’ll see what I can do.

 

Do you have permission to do this?

Not sure yet.

 

Okay, how do I order one?

1. Fill out the form below.

2. Send me funds via the Paypal link on the following page after you click Submit on the form.

Can I pay you with something other than Paypal?

Yes, I accept crypto.
